8 gigs of pure beauty

Pros
* 3G connection & WLAN
* Bluetooth 2.0 (with A2DP support)
* Large 2.6 inch QVGA resolution touch screen
* UIQ 3.0 - enhanced compared to earlier products
* Walkman 3.0 Touch player - best music player on a phone EVER
* 8 gigabytes of internal memory
* Nice design, size and weight
* Bundled accessories

Cons
* No EDGE and HSDPA
* Booting the device is a bit slow
* No memory card slot
* Somewhat strange T9 word input - many normal words missing, too

Conclusion
Sony Ericsson W960 feels like one of the best products ever from Sony Ericsson. The operating system and user interface is strong and performs well. Multitasking is good because of the excessive amount of free RAM memory.Calls are good and the speaker is loud, so thereís no chance of missing a call, unless itís on silent profile. The vibrator is good and youíll feel it most of the time.Battery wise, the phone isnít a top player, but itís not bad either. On a full charge it lasts about 2 days of normal use (in my case, thatís about 2 hours of WLAN use every day, camera usage, texting, a few calls, gaming, music and so on).The price of the phone is in my eyes acceptable. Itís cheaper than its predecessor, W950, and judged by how the price of W950 has been drastically falling, I think this will happen to W960 as well. In a few months time, the price will be excellent, Iím sure. Another thing we must remember is that the pricing varies from country to country - some places, it only costs about 500 USD, while other places itís 700 USD. The average price seems to be about 650 USD.Overall, this is an excellent smart phone with lots of features and an acceptable price. If you need a QWERTY keyboard, then Iíd suggest youíd look at P1, which is W960ís work oriented brother.

Verdict
5 (out of 5)
