There are a few obvious differences in this phone and the M610... 2 major ones are visible in the pics provided...

For 1: the exterior front is completely different, the 610 is a solid, sleek front, whereas this is a little more boxy, with the divided lower portion, which I can't see a purpose in, other than to make it more obviousd where the speaker is located...

2: There looks to be an exterior access panel to the MicroSD slot, which would definately help, as this is one of the major flaws with the 610. This would also account for this phone being slightly thicker than the 610, seeing as how the interior design would vary slightly...

Also there are some minor interior differences, such as the layout of the keypad, the navigation pad, and what looks to be a divot around the microphone area...

Hopefully this phone sells better for Cingular than it has for Sprint... I assume the issue with sprint was a lack of advertising as overall the phone works great....
