The stylish Z610i quad-band phone blends performance with a uniquely modern design. The sleek mirror finish on the front cover gives the phone a jewel-like quality that is complemented by an external 'magic mirror' display which is only visible when in use. The magic of the Z610i is revealed when a call comes in or the user receives an SMS or MMS message--the hidden external display illuminates, giving the effect that the caller-ID information is floating on the face of the phone itself. This striking phone delivers on its good looks--its advanced feature set includes a 2.0 Megapixel camera and broadband-speed 3G connectivity.
An innovative clamshell cover brings the Z610i to a new level of style.
The 176 x 220 display supports over 260,000 colors.
Take pictures with the built-in 2-megapixel camera. Or, if you have 3G data service, conduct video calls.
Post your photos to your personal blog--directly from your phone.
The impressive external screen is discrete and not apparent until a call, message or calendar event is displayed, while the Z610i's internal 176 x 220 color display supports over 260,000 colors for viewing crisp graphics and full-color photos. Other design features include an internal antenna, and a five-way button just above the dial pad that is used to control most of the phone's menus and features. Up/down buttons on the left side of the phone can be used for quick volume control. USB data and charging ports, as well as a headset port, are also provided.
A call list remembers your most recent missed, received and dialed calls, while the built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear. Polyphonic ringtones are included and there's even a bundled application that lets you mix your own ringtones. Picture caller ID lets you assign a photo to specific callers. Similarly, a ringer ID lets you assign ringtones to callers. For those times you want to keep things discreet, there's a vibrate ringer mode. And because the Z610i is Bluetooth-enabled, you can use a variety of headsets and handsfree kits for total wireless freedom when you're on the go.
Why not take advantage of the Z610i's fast 3G connection capabilities while making a phone call? The Z610i allows you to use more than just words--make a video call. During a call, you can switch between the video call camera and the main camera, allowing you to show the person with whom you're talking to see what you see.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The Z610i has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging. Support is built in for sending and receiving text, graphics and pictures and more via MMS messages. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun.
Because the Z610i supports the GPRS data protocol, getting on the Internet is easy. When used with a carrier data plan and the phone's USB or Bluetooth data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs.

T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
A number of handy software tools are bundled with the Z610i, including a voice memo recorder, a calculator, a calendar, a to-do list, and an alarm clock with a timer and stopwatch. Sony Ericsson Sync Station software lets you synchronize your Microsoft Outlook calendar, contacts, notes and tasks with your Z610i.
