Definitely not! I was playing with both today here in Greece and I can confirm that the K810 is as thick as a K800 minus the camera slider! The W610 is much slimmer and much more elegant. If the W610 was a 3G device I would have definitely bought it...it's beautiful!
If you like the W610 get it! It is perfectly suited for the US by being quadband and by supporting EDGE for fast email checking and light internet surfing. If Greek networks supported EDGE I wouldn't give a damn about 3G and outrageously priced video-calls. All I need is some speedy data transfer. The stupid Greek netwoks ignored EDGE and moved straight to 3G and even HSDPA(3.5G) in their effort to get more money by charging $1.00/min for video-calls!
Hmm, actually, I'm leaning towards the W610 now that I discovered it has autofocus. Which color do fellow HoFo'ers think looks better, the Silver/Black or the Black/Orange? I was leaning towards the Sliver/Black, but Black/Orange looks real nice. Opinions?
I just ordered the satin black. I figured more had the black/orange already. I liked the K550i a lot that I had, but I really wanted Walkman 2.0 and personally I think the W610i looks better. By the way...I forgot to check but I believe it comes with a 3.5mm headphone adapter already. Is this true?
The W610? Yeah, every Walkman that comes with HPM-70s has a 3.5mm headphone adapter. Also, I think the Satin Black looks kind of tacky IMO. I just saw some live pics from Mobile-review, and it doesn't look that great. I'll order the Plush Orange.
Well I thought I'd add some pics of the satin black version. Though it doesn't seem to be as popular a color choice.
Thus far all is ok. I must say though I am having some troubles getting used to the raised D ring and call and menu buttons. I had no issues with the K550i buttons at all. But these begin to hurt my fingers after constant use as they dig in a bit when you press them given their slim size. Over all though I think the build quality is better than the K550i. And zero creaks thus far when picking it up, or pressing on the battery cover. That was a major complaint (albeit a small one) with my K550i.
