D710 C207 E610 E850  

What's notable about the SGH-E610 is the unusual proportions. The E610 is noticeably thinner and lighter than most other clamshell phones with similar features. Yet it's also slightly wider, allowing a roomier keypad and larger display.


The features are quite respectable, including dual TFT color displays, a VGA camera with flash and video capture, and Java 2.0. The main display is wonderfully crisp and bright, supporting 262,000 colors and measuring 176 x 220 pixels.

But again, it's the shape and weight that stand out. This is a phone for people who like clamshell phones, but not the lump they make in your pocket. If you've been eyeing the Motorola V3 for that reason, but can't justify the price, this might be an alternative to consider.

Like the D710, the SGH-E610 most likely won't be coming to the U.S. by way of a major carrier. But it is tri-band, so it could be purchased from an importer and used with T-Mobile here in the States.
