In addition to the Sony Ericsson Z600, I thought you might want to take a look at the Z1010. It has more features than the Z600, but it's not out yet. It will be out soon. Check out gsmarena.com
I Just did a quick measure meant of the NEC e525 and they are pretty much the same size. So if you want to know the Size of an SE1010 go to your local retailer and check out the NEC e525.
Am i right in saying that this phone will also operate on normal operating GSM networks?
The trial unit of this phone is already in Singapore. I get to play with it for around 1 hour(I pissed the sales assistant for trying so long) and guess what!!! Iwas chosen to be one of the tester for this phone in December for the 3G service in Singapore and best of all its free!!!(But I will not get the phone in the end)
Here are a few points for you guys to look out, and also as I am using a trial unit not all functions are in.
1)The phone provides a very nice LCD screen.
2)The phone is extremely big in size.
3)Polyphonic tones sound the same as Z600.
4)The internal camera can take your own photos.
5)The trial unit is totally grey in colour and looks extremely ugly not like the red one shown here.
6)The expansion slot is hidden nicely.
When I get to hold the phone in December to try out the 3G service I will write another short guide here.
For you Singaporeans, the sales assistant told me the phone will be launch eearly next year but all the 3G phone(confirm launching is Samsung Z100, SE Z1010 and Siemens U10) will cost over SGD1000. Also Singaporeans can go to Hello! Orchad to see the dummies of this phones. Who knows, you might get chosen.
is SO505i a CDMA phone ?
Anyone can answer ?
and anyone know how much does this phone cost and when it will be launch in singapore ?
when does the z1010 come out and will it come out on t-mobile. how much will it cost for an upgrade on t-mobile. i would like to know the same information on the z600
I think the Z1010 is one of the best phones because he has a card-reader, UMTS, twin-cameras, a large display, and it isn't big. For me the best phones are they from Sony-ericsson, siemens and samsung. I hate nokia now. They are all big and bad. They have nothing extra.
Well, from what I've been told, 3 is the retailer that will sell this phone, since its a 3G fone. If 3 is in your country then we will all get it at the same time, Australia, UK, Hong Kong etc. Thats how they have such low prices, instead of placing an order for 30,000 for one country they place an order for 1 million of several countries all at once and they receive a discount. I was also told to expect this phone to come in under $1000. It might sound expensive but if you consider that some those 2 and 2.5G fones come at a price of $1600AUD (SE p800, when it was first released), its damn cheap and if you already have a 3 NEC e606 you have an option of tradingin that phone for the SE and they will discount it by a further $300
It does looks nice and cool but it's kinda big 'cause...i don't know BIG?hehehe
