Sony Ericsson made the fans happy today announcing several new mobiles - the Cyber-shot K810 and K550 and the Walkman W880 and W610.
The Sony Ericsson K810 is the next generation of cameraphones by Sony Ericsson - it builds on the success of the K800 model. Upgrades over the existent K800 are both hardware and software-related. The active lens cover is much more slimmer now and doesn't protrude from the body the way it did with K800. Besides being a lot thinner than its predecessor, the Sony Ericsson K810 will be equipped with a Photo Fix application for optimizing brightness and contrast and will also have illuminated side camera keys. what that means is that when the camera application is on, four of the alphanumeric keys on the keypad will become shortcuts for specific camera functions. Those keys are "1", "4", "7" and "*" and when the camera is on, an illuminated signs below them lit up to guide you on their functions. Besdies that functionality-wise, the K810 is pretty much unchanged - tri-band GSM/GPRS support, 3G networks support with video calls and a 3.2 megapixel Cyber-shot camera with auto focus and a Xenon flash.
In much the same way that K800 had its twin EDGE brother in the face of K790, now the K810 model also has an EDGE twin - the Sony Ericsson K818 which will be targeted at the Chinese market. The Sony Ericsson K810 and the K818 will be available within Q2 2007 in two colors: Noble Blue and Golden Ivory.
The second addition to the Cyber-shot line of mobiles comes in the mid-range line. It is a successor of the K510 model and is designated as Sony Ericsson K550. It has a 1.9" 262K colors display and a 2 megapixel camera with autofocus, a two-LED flash and an active lens cover. It would also boast quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, a Memory Stick Micro M2 card slot, and a FM radio - all that is housed in a body with a thickness of mere 14 mm.
The K550 would also have a twin brother - the Sony Ericsson K510im which would be the first i-mode enabled mobile bearing the Cyber-shot logo and would try to build on the success of the Sony Ericsson K610im. The Sony Ericsson K550 would become commercially available to selected markets in Q1 2007 in Jet Black or Pearl White color combinations.

w610 is the best phone, 2012 near 2013 i still use it
Why Sony Ericsson have no symbian series 60? I think if SE has series 60 maybe noone want to use nokia series 60....
W610-One among the best walkman series phone from SE. But with a price tag of above 15k, i dont think it would be the best choice available
