We have taken a quick peek at the successor to one of the biggest mobiles of last year – Sony Ericsson’s T610.
The Sony Ericsson T630 addresses one of the key problems of its predecessor in that it boasts a half-decent 65k colour screen as opposed to the much poorer quality display of the T610. The phone is also slightly smaller.
The other big change is that the T630 is availble in black or white, which we think is a retrograde step as we liked the two-tone black and silver of the 610.
The onboard camera is VGA (SE is obviously keeping its powder dry as it has a mega pixel camera phone the K700 coming later in the year) and storage is a rather paltry 2MB.
In spite of its success we weren’t that enamoured with the T610 and we certainly don’t rate its predecessor a great deal. In many departments the two most recent Sharp phones; TM100 (T-Mobile) and GX-30 (Vodafone) easily wipe the floor with it.
