O Sony Ericsson W995 é uma beleza, como todos telefones carros-chefe Walkman. Ele tem 3G, reprodução de vídeos do YouTube, alto-falantes estéreo, aGPS para uso com o Google Maps e uma honesta porta de 3,5 mm.

O slider tem tela de 2,6” e funciona como servidor de mídia usando DLNA por Wi-Fi – a capacidade de armazenamento é de 8 GB. A câmera de 8 MP conta com reconhecimento de face. Embora eu sempre tenha gostado muito dos celulares da Sony Ericsson, sem subsídios de operadoras nos EUA, fica difícil justificar sua compra. A falta de uma loja de aplicativos também é um problema, mas o outro empecilho, suporte a loja de música, dissolveu-se no ano passado com o crescimento de fontes livres de DRM, como a Amazon.
