    As a confirmed Sony Ericsson fan I have to express my disappointment with
    the Z200. I bought 2 of them as a gift for a client last week and took the
    opportunity to use one as my back-up phone for a couple of days.

    OK, I don't expect bluetooth on a budget phone (I paid 215 Euros per piece
    here in Estonia direct from the importer) but I DO expect basic things like
    MMS for instance. Maybe I am just spoiled for features with my everyday Z600
    but I really think that SE have missed the mark with this one. The whole
    package looks great, the colour screen is absolutely adequate but in this
    case beauty is only skin deep.

    I suggest that this is one to avoid. Sorry!

    Phil

    That's why it's only 215 Euro!

    for people who don't need 'fancy' features i.e. camera, mms etc (such
    as me) the Z200 is perfect. I've ordered one for £130GBP here in the
    uk and it should be with me in a few days.

    Re: Z200. Is it worth it?

    I didn't go into a lot of other stuff such as the inability to convert your
    own picture files for transfer to the Z200. Nokia have phones which are
    streets ahead of the Z200 at the same price but I do not like Nokia, I am a
    Sony Ericsson fan through and through - in fact my everyday Z600 is my 7th
    Ericsson product since I originally laid my hands on a GF788 whenever they
    came onto the market. SE is doing itself a disservice by putting this phone
    on the market. It is the most basic phone imaginable enhanced by a couple of
    Java games. Mark my words, there will be a Z210 (or something similar) by
    mid-year. I thought it would be great but I have had the chance to use it
    for a few days and am so disappointed. People are just not going to buy it
    unless they are blinkered SE fans. Conquest sales from Nokia et al will be
    non-existent.

    So? Is it worth it? I really doubt it.
