Nokia 7610 Review

Nokia 7610The PowerPage linked to my Sony Ericsson K700i review a few weeks back and thought you might be interested in my Nokia 7610 review:

Enter the Nokia 7610 (I have the white/silver model). This phone was actually the only other phone I was considering when I decided to purchase the K700i (the Sendo X was also on my radar at the time, but it wasn’t yet released). The main reason I initially decided in favor of the K700i was simply past experience ? I’ve had good luck with SE phones. The main reason I initially decided against the 7610 was the design. Nokia has a long track record of feeling the need to push the envelope of mobile phone design (if you can call their designs “pushing the envelope”). This phone is no exception and Nokia has made some pretty crazy leaps as far as keypad and case design go, none of which I think will survive this model.
