Sony Ericsson W610i

 Sony Ericsson W610i Discontinued
8th February 2007

In much the same way that the original Sony Ericsson W800i "Walkman" phone was a version of the K750i camera phone, the Sony Ericsson W610i is a "Walkmanised" version of the K550i Cyber-shot phone. And the similarities don't end there.. the W610i is a very close match for the original Walkman phone, just in a sleeker - and cheaper - package.

 Sony Ericsson W610i The Sony Ericsson W610i is a very slim monoblock phone with a thickness of just 14mm, it comes with a 1.9" 176x220 pixel display, 2 megapixel digital camera, an FM radio and expandable memory using Memory Stick Micro cards. Sony Ericsson include a 512Mb card in the box which is enough for about 8 albums worth of high-quality MP3s.

As is the current fashion, the Sony Ericsson W610i has gone a bit glossy, but it's not just a slimmed-down version of the old W800i - the software has been upgraded since the original incarnation of the Walkman phone, making this a more polished device underneath too.

Do we really need another Walkman phone? We've begun to lose count of exactly how many W-series devices that Sony Ericsson have come up with, but if you regard the W610i as a more interesting replacement for the less-than-successful W700i then it makes a certain amount of sense.

One final oddity - Sony Ericsson are making the W610i available in "Plush Orange" and "Satin Black", these colours are on the back of the phones. The Plush Orange is the black phone in the picture, the Satin Black one is the white one. Go figure. Sony Ericsson says that the W610i should be available in certain markets during Q2 2007.
