Sony Ericsson T630
The Sony Ericsson T630 is an upgrade
of the classic T610 handset.
The T630's screen has been improved and
is now brighter and clearer, borrowing the
display used in the new Z600 model, running
in 65,000 colours at 128x160 pixels. Plus
the T630 comes in a pretty semi-translucent
case (Sony Ericsson call it "Frosty
Silver") making it an extremely distinctive
Measuring 102 x 43 x 17 mm and weighing
92.5 grams, the Sony Ericsson T630 is a
compact but feature-packed phone. The T630
is a tri-band phone supporting GPRS, SMS,
MMS and email and sports a WAP 2.0 browser.
The phone can be connected to a PC via Bluetooth,
infra-red or cable.
Standby time is up to 13 days with a
talk time of up to 14 hours, so this looks
to be a good business phone.
The digital camera supports Sony Ericsson's
QuickShare systen to allow photos to be
easily shared with others. The camera on
the T630 itself outputs at up to 640x480
resolution, although it seems that some
of this is done by software rendering rather
that by native resolution. A neat feature
is a small mirror on the back of the phone
to help with self portraits, this enables
the Sony Ericsson T630 to overcome one of
the problems with the "candy bar"
format of handset.
