Orange UK rolls out the Sony Ericsson W880i


Exactly 22 days after the W880i was announced by Sony Ericsson, good ol' (and apparently really fast) Orange UK gets this wee device out the door for "pay monthly" customers. True to form, our distant friends in Europe get mobile toys first -- if this handset were to ever grace our shores and store shelves, you can bet it would be months after announcement. Orange seems a wee bit confused about the specs on the device though; battery life is listed as 2.5 hours talk time and 1 day standby. With power specs like that, we doubt these nano-sized cells will be flying off the shelves -- talk time should be listed as 6 hours with 452 hours standby time. Sounding a little more attractive now?

[Thanks, Orange Man]
