Sony Ericsson's canceled W595s for Orange gets postmortem look


There are canceled Sony Ericsson models worth mourning, and then there are others that simply aren't. We'd argue that the W595s falls into the latter category, a one-off version of the W595 that was crafted to Orange's exacting specifications but -- for reasons clear only to Orange and Sony Ericsson -- was apparently canceled just hours before its announcement. One of the W595's strong suits is its simple, monochrome appearance, and that's an advantage lost on the W595s thanks to a chrome bar that needlessly bisects the bottom quarter of the face. So yeah, to the execs that dropped the axe: good call.
