Sony Ericcson T610 (2003)
Back in the day information like “storage space” and “CPU” were just not listed in the specifications for the phones. Looking around the web I’ve found sites that do have these specifications and it’s quite enlightening. To think that we used to read email, send text messages and have rudimentary access to the Internet at a useable speed when phones like this had just 2Mb of memory.
The camera is now built in and takes pictures up to a resolution of 288x352. That appears to be a step down from the addon camera for the T68i perhaps my research has failed somewhere. Regardless, we’re still talking tiny pictures! The display was 128x160 so it couldn’t show the pictures that the camera took at full resolution. Modern phones have screens with ten times higher density than this!
When I got my first phone with Cellnet the contract included a phone upgrade each year. Still at a sensible price for the time to get a new phone. Reasonable monthly charges were offset by very high call, text and data charges.
Replaced by something with better specs’ while on contract.
