    Anybody here know anything about/or have, the new Sony Ericsson k550i? Ive been reading about them the past few days and am interested in buying one. From what ive heard its not much better than my w810i, updated OS and few smaller things. Ive read what Howard Forums had to say about it, just thought id ask OT.

    I'm gonna wait to upgrade to something revolutionary. A SE with a 4 or 5 MP camera. Hopefully within the next year.

    I'd get the W610 cause some reviewers were complaining about the keys on the k550.

    I went with the k550i, I got it off ebay for $220 unlocked/unbranded. I have had it one day and its been awesome so far. Buttons are a little small, but I dont have big hands so its no big deal at all, and with the 15 text messages I send a month smaller keys dont bother me. I didnt use the walkman feature on my w810i at all, so its nice to have a phone without all that, and the main reason I didnt wait for the w610 to come out. I'll post a full review in a week with pics.

    I must say, this is the first unbranded phone I have had, and it might be the only way I buy phones from now on. Its nice not having all that Cingular crap loaded in the phone.

    My w810i might be hitting the yard sale soon, I'll let you guys know!
