    opionions, stories, etc anything on this phone? i was considering purchasing it for use on Cingular's GSM network.

    Nokia 6610i

    The new Nokia 6610i takes an excellent phone and adds an integrated digital camera, voice commands and XHTML browser, whilst retaining everything that was good about the 6610:

    * User-friendly keypad with 4-way scroll key
    * Slimline, lightweight phone with good battery life
    * Stereo FM radio
    * Triple band
    * Java games
    * Changeable x-press on covers

    You can add photographs to your phone book so you can put a face to the name of the person who's calling. Overall the 6610i is a great phone and our only real criticism is the rather mediocre 4096 colour display.

    Features of the Nokia 6610i include:

    * Integrated digital camera
    * WAP 1.2.1, GPRS & HSCSD (High-Speed Circuit-Switched Data)
    * XHTML browser
    * MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service)
    * Downloadable Java™ games & applications
    * Colour display (4096 colours, 128x128 pixels)
    * Polyphonic ringtones (MIDI format), plus standard ringtones
    * Integrated stereo FM radio
    * Integrated handsfree speaker
    * Voice commands
    * Predictive text input
    * Mobile chat
    * Changeable x-press on covers
    * Phonebook (500 names)
    * 4M bytes shared memory
    * Built-in infra-red modem
    * Pop-Port� interface
    * Downloadable colour wallpaper
    * Downloadable Java games
    * Alarm clock, wallet, calculator
    * Size: 106 x 44 x 19 mm
    * Weight: 87g
    * Battery standby: 6 - 18 days
    * Battery talktime: 3 - 3.5 hours
    * Tri band

    Initially that was bothering me aswell, but it is datacable compatible, and honestly, with crap like the Cabir virus floating around, i see no real NEED for me to have it, it turn into more of a WANT. As long as I can backup my contact list, which being GSM, i'm investing in a SIM reader for the computer, I think i can do without ye olde BT....for now.

    The main debate right now is between this and the Sony T637, which seems to be getting bad reviews about keypad feel and battery life. :hs:

    i totally understand, wireless > wired...and i concur, but considering my laptop is old(no bt built in), and i don't use a pda, it's more of a novelty function at this point for me. my biggest concern with is the battery life. i like the duration on my current 3560, but then it doesn't have even a 1/3 of the neat shit that this 6610i has.
