Apart from the GPS feature, the Sony Ericsson W760i isn't a particularly high-end phone. Yes, it has a pretty good feature set, but the W760i doesn't compete with the Nokia N95 - instead, this handset concentrates on music features rather than the N95's "everything but the kitchen sink approach".
The display on the W760i is a 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel panel in 262,000 colours. That's substantially smaller than the N95's 2.6" panel and the N95 8GB's 2.8" display. On the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera, but one that lacks a flash and autofocus. The W760i also lacks a Video Calling camera. The camera itself is hidden in normal use, and is only revealed when the W760i is slid open. The mechanism appears to be almost identical to that seen in many Samsung sliders.
It's a dual-band UMTS 850 / 2100 handset, and the W760i supports HSDPA and EDGE data as well as GPRS. Sony Ericsson's technical data says that the W760i has WiFi, but we can find no mention of this elsewhere and we suspect it is an error.
Our problem with the W760i is this - what is it for? If you ignore the GPS , this is basically just a grab-bag of parts from other phones. There have now been over 20 Walkman phones in an increasingly complicated and confusing range. And unless you specifically want the "Walkman" features, then the W760i has a much inferior specification to the N95 which is generally free for contract customers anyway.
We strongly suspect that the W760i is the result of an internal political process within Sony Ericsson rather than an engineering one, and the camera capabilities and screen have been deliberately crippled in order not to compete with a forthcoming K-series GPS phone.
