\"Walkman\" beats \"ROKR\" in cellular study

\"Walkman\" beats \"ROKR\"

Strategy Analytics today released its latest , concluding that the Sony Ericsson W800i "Walkman" phone is the highest rated cellular music device in the USA, ahead of the Motorola E1 "ROKR" iTunes phone and the Samsung A970. Results came from hands-on consumer testing by the Strategy Analytics Advanced Wireless User Panel, and the Sony Ericsson W800i device achieved "Best in Class" status based upon superior style appeal and an above average rating for music feature quality. The Motorola E1 "ROKR" iTunes phone achieved the highest rating for usability, but failed to impress in terms of style and feature quality. The Samsung A970, weighing 144 grams, was considered too large for primary feature phone positioning: "The ROKR was rated lower than the Samsung and Sony Ericsson devices for Music Quality, however, a notable underperformance for Motorola given the branded and highly optimized iPod interface designed for music delivery."

    tru

    The Walkman phone kicks butt. I mentioned that Apple should be working with Sony Ericsson instead of Motorola but Jobs didn't listen :)

    The SE phones get it right. Have a slick UI and integrates with Macs very well. They just don't work with iTunes. Too bad. These are two companies that should be working together.

    Both c***

    the rokr is a stnkr and the W800i is a travesty. i'd be embarrassed to carry either.

    how come the cellphone world is so BACKWARD right now?

    anyone for a nokia 8210 nano ?

    W800 is cool

    in my book. I wonder what problems you're having that you would say it's a travesty. Cool feature set, just missing iTunes.
