We knew the W705 as the Rika when it was leaked onto the Internet back in September 2008 where it was instantly dismissed as a Walkman version of the uninspiring G705 GPS mobile. Now we have the official announcement out of the way - it was the final Sony Ericsson to be unveiled in 2008 - and the release date is upon us we can see this initial reaction sold the W705 short as it's a little more than a G705 in a pretty dress!Why You Should Buy the W705!It's a gorgeous brushed aluminium bodi

    I've had this phone since it was released in Oz - mid or late-2008.

    The video/still camera quality is nothing to write home about. It's pretty average, with a 3.1MP cam, and the zoom doesn't work in all modes. The flash is useful as a torchlight, but doesn't give you much in terms of image quality.

    If you want a camera phone with a GOOD camera, go Cybershot or whatever.

    This phone is tough. Has handled a million and one falls. the silver 'w' logo in the front came off after a month, but otherwise, build quality is quite good, although inherently, slides are not as tough as bricks.

    It's a great walkman! No kidding, my phone came with 4GB of storage from Telstra, and I've used it to connect to the internet. The browser is surprisingly efficient.

    ....and 3G/HSDPA connection quality is quite good. Signal holding capabilities are quite good.

    This is a great walkman, a handy net-browser/modem and a great phone.

    It looks quite classy and even a bit retro when I put it on the table at business meetings (compared to those clunky iPhones and new-age touch screens that people can barely hold properly for fear of cracking the screens-lol)

    But it's not a camera...period!

    Hope this helps.
