[SE launches the K610im offering full support for NTT DoCoMo's i-mode(tm) service including iMail, Web browsing, and iMMS.]

Those looking to upgrade or enter the world of 3G with a slim, elegant handset, will love K610im, announced today. K610im is Sony Ericsson's first GSM/UMTS phone to offer full support for i-mode, the operator service that delivers a richer experience for handling iMail, browsing the Internet and viewing content. Wrapped in desirable Carbon Black casing, this elegantly designed phone is all about quality, from the feel of the keypad to the sharp, crisp image display.

"We are extremely pleased that a leading brand vendor such as Sony Ericsson is to offer market leading handsets with full support for i-mode services. Sony Ericsson has achieved an excellent integration of the i-mode service portfolio and the result is a compelling consumer offering." said Mr. Takeshi Natsuno, Senior Vice President, Managing Director, Multimedia Services, NTT DoCoMo, Inc.

The innovative i-mode service delivers a whole new experience in connected mobile applications such as iMail, Web browsing and iMMS. Viewing multimedia is better, faster and easier, thanks to Web pages and content specially formulated for i-mode. Lighter pages give faster download speeds and users are given access to a host of i-mode sites and content.

i-mode also helps you get even more from K610im's impressive functionality. You can shoot great pictures with the phone's 2 Megapixel camera and send them in high quality as as e-mail as well as iMMS messages. The supplied 64MB Memory Stick (M2) will store up to 175 photos, and can be expanded to 1GB, and K610im has everything you need for fast, responsive video calling.

K610im appeals to the design conscious who want a 3G phone that is as compact and lightweight as a fashionable 2G handset. Sony Ericsson has gained a reputation for delivering 3G phones that closely match the size and weight of their 2G predecessors and K610im takes this a step further, delivering full 3G functionality, a highly specified camera and intuitive music player, all in a phone that weighs just 89g.

One of Sony Ericsson's most versatile 3G handsets yet, K610im's highly specified music player is equipped for over-the-air downloads. You can store up to 60 tracks in the new eAAC+ format with the Memory Stick (M2), and a USB cable and music software is also included for transferring tracks to and from your PC.

The K610im is a dual mode UMTS (2100MHz) - GPRS 900/1800/1900 handset for i-mode markets in Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and will ship in Q3.
