I’ve own a T610. They came out in Hong Kong about a week ago.
As per your previous user report, the sound quality does suck. A lot of hissing in the background and its picks up a lot of background noise (Similar to the Sony Z28 that I used before as well). Radiation seems to be an issue as well (My ears are sensitive that somehow – just don’t ask how). In terms of the basic phone functions, this phone does not stand up to my Nokia.
However, the design and GUI is nice. Buttons not as intuitive as a Nokia, but the interface is nice and pretty and the colors on the display are quite sharp for a cell phone. I have some issues with some missing basic functions (no real speed dialing i.e. Nokia one-touch speed dialing). Never owned an Ericsson phone before, but this was similar to the old Sony phone I had.
Camera is decent. Sharper than the Panasonic GD88, but probably nowhere close to the one megapixel camera phones that are coming out in Japan now. There is a low light mode as well, but doesn’t really improve pictures. Have not tried to flash accessory though.
Numeric buttons are nice with a blue glow, but the black buttons next to the joystick feel quite cheap (just the buttons, the black area next to the screen is quite nice) and are very stiff. The joystick works pretty decently too.

For more details on this cool new SE phone, check out Unofficial Club SE 610 and the official Sony Ericsson T610 page.
