Samsung M610 at Sprint

Sprint today started shipping the Samsung M610, a clamshell phone the company says is the thinnest such phone ever to be released in the US at 0.47 inches. Despite this size, the phone is comparatively advanced for its mid-range status, according to the carrier. The M610 has a central, 2-megapixel camera that can swivel to either face outwards for conventional photos or inwards for self-portraits. Sprint further says the phone supports all the company's Power Vision services, including EVDO Internet access as well as mobile TV. Bluetooth and a microSD card slot for additional storage complement the design. The phone is available today from Sprint for $330 as a stand-alone purchase and for $180 with a two-year contract.

    No iSync

    Apple doesn't support this phone as of January. So no iSync. Thank god for third party support with Bluetooth apps that don't care what your phone is.

    The camera doesn't flip pictures when you rotate the lens for self portraits (you have to use the menu's to rotate).

    It's rebooted several times using bluetooth (even after Sprint gave me a new one)

    It takes really nice pictures (I upgraded from a 1mp 8200).

    The MP3 player is nice. Good headphones included.

    64mb miniSD included. 130 pictures at full 2mp resolution. 33 on phone.

    Very little textile feedback from buttons. Slight humps. Audible clicks.

    Customizable "Favorites" menu up to 12 (including * and #).

    OS menu based on 1- and * and # layout. Very nice and quick to use.

    Confusing ways to do everything twice, including bluetooth FTP folders.

    Can't BlueTooth MP3s as ringers. Must download from Sprint or send through upload website like

    99 quick dial entries.
