Hi,

The handset you mention is a solid sturdy fone with a tried and trusted walkman interface.

The buttons however are rather fiddley.

The camera at 2mp is ok but are not at a suitable quality if you want to print them.

It is quadband with bluetooth capabalities.

It has both autofocus and dual LED flash, so it produces good results even when working in dimly lit.

Both the phone's call quality and the reception were excellent and the battery life is also very good. You'll get around seven hours of talk time out of it and it'll run for over 14 days on standby.

The W610i is one of the cheaper handsets in the Walkman range so it lacks some of the really premium features. The phone doesn't support 3G so you're limited to GPRS download speeds when using the Web browser and there's no video calling facilities. Also, the screen has a noticeably lower resolution than some of the other Walkman phones, making icons and text look rather blocky.

Although the phone's keys are thin metal strips similar to those on the W880i, they're actually longer so more comfortable to use. Sony Ericsson has also made the soft keys at the top of the numerical keypad into circular strips and these are more fiddly to use.
