Sony Ericsson K630i

 Sony Ericsson K630i Discontinued
11th October 2007

We saw the Sony Ericsson K630i a few days ago in it's alternative identity as the Vodafone variant V640i. As far as we can tell, the K630i is absolutely identical to the V640i apart from some cosmetic software differences.

All mobile phone designs are a compromise between competing features - the Sony Ericsson K630i goes for lightweight, high speed and presumably a reduced cost by cutting back on the display and camera. So although the HSDPA (3.5G) phone weighs just 97 grams, the display is only a 176x220 pixel panel and there's a basic 2 megapixel camera with no flash or autofocus.

Despite the design compromises, the Sony Ericsson K630i does come with plenty of features, including a multimedia player, FM radio, email client, web browser and RSS feed reader.

  K630i back As is usually the case with Sony Ericsson, the back of the phone looks as smart as the front and the overall design is very pleasing. There are two colour variants at present - Quick Black and Havana Gold. The latter seems to be quite an attractive colour combination for this handset.

It's not exactly a high-end phone, so it's slightly surprising to see HSDPA included in the K630i. Much faster than a standard 3G connection, the high-speed data in this phone means that music downloads and streaming multimedia will download more quickly (if you're in a coverage area). It also makes it tempting  as a business handset, as the K630i would make an ideal modem for a laptop.

Sony Ericsson say that the K630i should be available during Q4 2007.
