>> Hi I am Kent German, senior editor here at CNET.com. Today we are taking a first look at the Sony Ericsson W580I. This is a new Walkman phone; it is unlocked so right now it's not available for US carrier. A lot of the Sony Ericsson phones we see our candy bar phones, they've gotten into flip phones and now they're getting into slider phones as well. W580I is a slider design, you can see it slides just up like that, it does manage to be kind of thin as well, slider works pretty well, we were able to do it with one hand and it didn't feel too loose as well. The display here, it is pretty nice, pretty good for the phone size, navigation is just below it, nicely designed as well. You have two soft keys that are kind of large, just below them it's a dedicated back key and a clear button. You also had a dedicated Walkman button so that will open the Walkman player and a button for a shortcut menu which you can program yourself. When you slide up the phone you can see the keypad buttons are revealed, they are flat with the service of the phone, however and they are a tiny bit scrunched down, however they weren't so bad overall. It has a bright backlighting, numbers on them are pretty large, so just want to be aware that they can be a little slit and they are not the best for dialing by feel. Also sliding up the phone reveals the camera lens, no flash or self portrait mirror, but you can see it right there, so you do need it up to take photos. Overall this is a very stylish phone, it has a normal Walkman features music player, Bluetooth, all that kind of thing, has a two mega pixel camera as well, speakerphone, everything you would expect on a made high-end phone. I am Kent German and this is the Sony Ericsson W580I.
