    Quick question: Anybody know the comparative prices of these two (I'm in
    Australia, but any prices will do)? I'm looking to upgrade my old (old, old,
    etc.) R310s to either of these. The feature lists look identical, so is it
    simply a matter of price vs. styling? I've got big hands so I imagine the
    Z600 is the way to go, but I'm looking for impressions, please.

    Okay, just found the "Z600 suck in terms of size!" thread, but am still
    interested in comparative prices. Anybody, please?

    I bought a t610 via ebay from HK for AUS$415. I paid AUS$800 for a Z600 in
    Melbourne.

    Thanks for that, looks like it might have to be the T610. Anybody else have
    any thoughts on the subject.

    Re: Phone comparison: T610 vs. Z600

    I Just brought the Z600 new from eBay also, but picked up in Melbourne for
    $589.00....it is a fantastic phone,.....well balanced and is feature
    packed...and whats more it works a treat.........has many features my old
    t39 had, and many more................in fact I'm still finding nifty little
    features almost a week after purchasing....my only nag is the brightness of
    the screen in sunny conditions outdoors.............this I have compensated
    a little by using a very bright, white background picture, as my
    wallpaper...................the keys are small and may be awkward if you
    have clumsy hands.........as was the case with me....but can be mastered
    after much practice. I havent put it down in a week....I'm hooked.

    Hope this helps

    I bought a Z600 a couple of weeks back from a Telstra shop, it was about
    $700. I looked at the T610 also but was more impressed with keyboard and
    clamshell design of the Z600. The prices for both phones appeared pretty
    comparative at the retail/Aust web shops I looked at, around ($650-$700).

    As per some of the other replies I also found both phones for sale on ebay
    much cheaper. However at the time I was looking all the cheapies I saw were
    being sourced offshore (HongKong - Singapore etc.). I'm too impatient, I
    wasn't waiting! Plus I think there were some suspect warranty clauses also
    eg. one week warranty!


    Cheers

    the one for me.....

    The Z600 is a little chunkier although I do not feel it is unwieldy. The
    payoff of the slighly larger phone is a larger keyboard etc (with my big
    fingers, I find it easier writing SMS on the Z600)

    Functionally, the two phones are quite similar. One physical difference
    between them is the type of screen.

    Cannot comment on prices, I am afraid.

    Re: Phone comparison: T610 vs. Z600

    Thanks to everyone for your very helpful answers. I'm going to go for the
    Z600 through an Optus contract. It'll cost me around $399 for the phone,
    over 24 months. The plan is $33 per month with an additional $16.45 per
    month for the phone. That sounds just about ideal for me. The T610 would
    have cost $329 on the same sort of plan.

    I'm pretty happy with the whole thing. By the way, the lady from Optus I was
    dealing with has been very helpful throughout the process, so well done
    Optus!

    DAMN!!! Those prices are awfull! Here in the Netherlands you get this phone
    for free in combination with a 24 month contract while you pay 17 euro's
    each month :-)

    This is in Australia, remember, and we don't always get the best deals, or
    latest stuff. There are still places here that want $800+ for these two
    phones! I'll get $33 per month included calls as well.

    Ok, my fault. These prices in Autralian dollars are a bit more gentle, but
    still way higher than here. With the 17 euro (28 dollar) contract are also
    90 minutes included. But what are we talking about, if we really want to
    have fancy phones with the latest technologies for reasonable prices, we
    should go to Japan ;-)
