It's often the case that the more recently released phones are exploited by the phone suppliers, taking advantage of their novelty factor and their technical desirability to either increase the line rental or lower the amount of giveaways or both. However, this recently released model goes against that grain by offering a generous amount of free minutes plus a free iPod 80Gb and all at a very reasonable line rental.

Look and feel
While light to hold, the W890i despite its svelte appearance feels as though it could withstand the odd knock, thanks in part to its metal casing.
The most powerful handset to date from Sony Ericsson's Walkman range, the W890i packs in HSDPA internet capabilities, a 3.2-megapixel camera and Google Maps.
Ease of use
The large screen means menu icons are clearly displayed.
The 3.6Mbps HSDPA, makes surfing the web and downloads an electric experience, while the improved 3.2-megapixel camera is another standout improvement.
An incredible 570 minutes of talktime and 360 hours' standby time, means the Sony Ericsson W890i packs a ton of juice in its slim body.
