Just off the phone with o2 looking the k800 but as they were asking to much for it the guy suggested this handset so they must have it in stock.
Recieved the k610i in to the shop I work in yesterday and gave it a thorough test all day. So a quick review...
Camera is good at 2mp but it only supports a 2.5x zoom when in VGA mode. It doesn't have a flash. It will be destroyed by its bigger brother the k800i when that comes in to stock next week.
The camera is good, even if you can't zoom. Night mode is fairly good. The phone is very loud and has good quality rear speaker. Menu system is clear and concise. The new direction pad replaces the traditional joystick, much nicer! My Friends group is cool. light and compact. Stylish in Urban Grey.
Does the job and will be promoted on the network I work for as an affordable performance phone. A few restrictions shouldn't detract from the excellent and quality package the phone offers. However, hardcore phone junkies (lol) should wait for the k800.
hope this was usefull

Anyone had a chance to try it out yet?
available in hi-mobile or plemix now...but pretty pricy now I guess because it's new release
I phoned o2 who said it should be available later today. However they are only stocking the red version (and I wanted the silver one). Looks like I'll be waiting for the K800.
Rang up o2 to order the phone today, and the release date has now been put back til the 30th of June
any1 knows what is the k610im it seems like a black non-3g version of the k610 http://asia.cnet.com/reviews/mobilephones/0,39051199,39260401p,00.htm
I called o2 (in the UK) today who advised that the phone will be available Monday 26th.
the mobile is released on the 26th of june according to o2 is this true??

i alos work for o2, the customer service advised who advised the 26th of june is half correct it is due in on the 26th but it usually takes a day to two to come on the systems so if any one does call on the 26th and o2 say it is not yet ready to order it is because it has not registered on the system yet so please give it a day or two.........!!!!
