    Hi
    My dad has gone to China, and I asked him to get me a cell phone
    I'd given SE K700 as my first preference, and SE T610 as my 2nd
    He called me yesterday saying that K700 was 18k, compared to 17k in India, and T610 was 7k compared to 8.5k in India
    Now, its not that I can't pay 17k, but I'm wondering, is the K700 worth it?
    I mean, the T610 looks much better, thers no doubt about that, and the only improvements I see in the K700 are camcorder, and FM Radio, both which I use very rarely
    So, should I buy the T610(which, according to me, is the best looking phone ever), or am I making a mistake and should go for the K700?
    Pls don't suggest any other phones, as I've got my heart set on these two

    Also, can anyone tell me if SE provides data cables with its models, and if not, where can I buy one in Mumbai?

    which phone u ask

    yes true k700 is far better. it also supports bluetooth and comes with the cables to connect to the pc. the camcorder is no ordinary and will give a 30 min recording comfortably.

    Ya, i know the K700 is a killer phone, thats why I had it as my first preference, but now I'm having second thoughts
    I really don't care about the camcorder, and the T610 has bluetooth
    I basically want a phone which looks awesome, and has all the new cool features, which the T610 seems to have
    Personally, I think the K700 looks really ugly, the buttons look cheap, thats why I'm not inclined towards it(that and Rs.18k) :D
    Also, anyone who has the T610, does it come supplied with a data cable, and a software CD?
    Also, any bad experiences with either phone?

    K700 and T610.Both do NOT come with data cables...

    As far as features are concerned K700i is light years ahead of T610..
    But yeah,T610 looks much better..
    But believe me, saving 6630,there is no other phone in the market that can hold a candle to K700i

    i agree with nemesis
    the no memory expansion is a very big negative for the k700
    and yeah the 7610 is GR8 PHONE .... no 3g/wifi tho...
    wifi is only there in the new communicator 9500 or whatever

    anyone ever thought of the Motorola E398 ? Its a killer phone as far as I an concerned. The only negative is that it doesnt have a IR port....no big deal...has bluetooth...plus 64MB transflash card! the K700i comes with a 42 MB card....now how on earth will u record 30 mins of video on that ???? I too initially thought K700i...but seriously when I checked this one out...I was blown over...and a built in mp3 player....with all ur regular features.... .8 megapixel cam .... buit in ringtones are pretty cool....right now I dont have any complaints at all!

    E398 clarification

    Why do u need data cable when u have got bluetooth in case of K700i

    as 4 E398 also add that it is bigger and heavier.....

    @icecoolz

    E398 has 0.3 Mp cam and not 0.8 mp
    k700i with 42 megs records 58 mins of 3gpp video
    E398 cannot plat VBR mp3's
    E398 has no FM
    E398 has no Vid recordin

    But yeah overall great phone!!! at least at that price...
