The Sexy Sony Ericsson Z610

Sony Ericsson's new-mirrored finish 3G cell phone, with a super cool OLED screen on the front is by far the sexiest I've seen in the past couple of weeks. The Z610 doesn't have much for features, but the design does help it stand out from the sea of mobile phones on the market. The Picture Blog application is a nice add-on, allowing you to share pictures taken from its 2.0 megapixel camera and upload or blog the images directly to a website. There's also the proprietary Memory Stick Micro that we all love to hate. The current largest capacity for the memory upgrade goes up to 1GB. There's one feature I like that many other sites overlooked, and that's the Bluetooth stereo (A2DP) support. This is a sweet feature that allows you to beam music from Z610 to a compatible Bluetooth wireless headset.

Z610 is available in selected markets from Q3 2006.
