In 2003, “Finding Nemo” was shown in cinemas across the globe, Arnold Schwarzenegger became the Governor of California, New York City was without power for 29 hours – and Sony Ericsson brought the T610 to the market. Its industrial design, the ease of use and sheer number of features (including an integrated camera – one of the first in the world) made the Sony Ericsson T610 a huge success for the still young Joint Venture.
There were 3 colour variations available: Aluminum Haze, Abyss Blue and Volcanic Red – this must also have been the time when Sony Ericsson started to let marketing people define names for colours :) . The surface of the phone was half plastic (with a piano finish) and half aluminium which gave the phone great haptics.
Here are the key features of the Sony Ericsson T610:
- Dimensions: 102 x 44 x 19 mm (4.02 x 1.73 x 0.75 in)
- Weight: 95 g (3.35 oz)
- Display: STN, 128×160 pixels, 16-bit color (65536 colors)
- Digital camera, image size: 288 x 352 pixels (=CIF) or 120 x 160 pixels (=QQVGA), 24-bit colour depth (16 million colours)
