This fone is really ugly. They kind of mixed 6630 with 7610.
Once u hold 7610 u`ll notice that the keypad isn`t bad, in fact is very easy to use.
Thsi should be priced fairly reasonably.
What's the point in reusing the same screens, etc, if you can get the price down?!?!?
Am I right here? Give us this model for under $380 USD Nokia!! It's not worth $599 for fsakes, no one needs another $600 fone.
Good idea to drop the little joy-stick..
Now if I can only snatch one up for $275 USD, then I'd be really enthused.
Nuthing quite looks like a quirky Nokia unit!
Which I adore...
hey you novelty luvvers. I just need a real fone with a ring-ring sound, no playground melodies. no camera pls i got one. no mp3 or fm i luv my long play records. i just need a fone thats really a fone and can be used as a fone. no games im not a child anymore
I agree with a lot of people here actually I can't believe Nokia are producing the same old boring design they have done it now 3 times, it was original with the 7610 but now its getting old. Maybe Nokia are clueless about phone design which is what I always thought. They obviously havent got any fresh ideas so they recycle their past designs and hope people buy into their crap.. not good enough. Its a shame because they do make good phones (sometimes) feature wise...
256K lcd do makes a difference from 65K lcd. viewing the same picture on the 256K lcd and 65K lcd, the 65K lcd shows a lack of colour balance between two differnece tone of colour, which the 256K Lcd does not.
nokia at least has come back to their senses after the disastrous last 3 models (ugly 6630, 7270, etc)...but why still 65k colors at the premium price when others are producing 256k with their top phones?? also the 7610's screen seem to be the same as the old 6600's...the dark/light model looks too bland the light model's better...but it seems that nokia is always a step behind (4k, 65k)...either nokia thinks it can cut cost by giving us 4k or 65k or we will continue to be loyal to nokia so it can continue to shortchange us, ...just remember IBM in the pc business , nokia, learn from the past
Mind blowing phone but shape is a lil bit odd should be like 6600 in the end i give it 9/10 superbb phone wel done NOKIAAA
I ain't no Nokia basher I recently swapped a SE K700 for the Nokia 7610 and have owned half a dozen Nokias, anyway yes you can tell the difference in the screen quality and colour, this screen is identical to the 7610's and the 6600's 65k colour screen, which is over a year old design not only that the 176 x 208 pixel display is really poor, you can actually see the pixels while other phones like the SE S700 & Sharp GX 30 with 262K and 240 x 320 pixels have a much chrispier,clear and brighter more detailed screen. Damn you Nokia I love my 7610 but you you're gonna keep feeding us with more shit like this you ain't gonna survive!
256k colour screens are just a marketing trick (at least on SE S700 and some Samsung phones): yes, the screen can show 256k colours BUT the OS's of the phones use only 65k of these available colours.
Why so many smartphone models all of a sudden? They're all practically the same!
very nice phone:
- good camera
- nice design (cant twist about taste)
and what is this bitching about the 65k color screen instead of the 256k color screen? like you notice the difference?! useless nokia bashing imho...
Looks like skater's back then.
Anyway I agree the phone looks bland and the screen is still 65000 colour!!! If Nokia don't upgrade soon they will find themselves languishing behind the likes of SE, Motorola and Samsung etc
I don't mind the rounded look, but not with this bland color. Features are good, but I wouldn't buy it. Mainly because of the screen, the very small keys and that it's a Nokia.
I can't think of why I'm neither attracted nor appauled by this phone... It's not special, but it's not horrible either....
