Available from: AT&T
Price: $299, unlocked
Pros: The latest in the Walkman line so popular in Europe. Good sound quality, even without a headset. Built-in FM radio and pedometer. Uses GSM protocol and is available in unlocked form, so it travels well abroad. Can be had for less (with a contract) from AT&T.
Cons: Texting is a challenge; the tiny keyboard wasn't designed for human-sized fingers.
Buy this one if ... You want a high-quality dedicated music phone but have a separate smartphone for text-heavy tasks.
