View Full Version : replacement for M600i

I am currently using a M600i and really like it despite some of its shortcomings. However, I hear that it is being phased out. Does anyone know if there is a replacement scheduled to be launched to replace it?

I too have an M600i and love it - it has shortcomings but not many - new firmware available soon too.

They've only just released it so I can't imagine for a minute that it's about to be canned. Could you say where you read about it being phased out?

I heard about it from one of the Sony Ericsson dealers but have not been able to confirm.

I'd ignore the dealer - Michal Jerz the site admin over at My-Symbian has an M600i with the new version of firmware available for preview. In fact I think the M600i is probably the most fully functional UIQ3 device available at the moment rather than the closest to the can!

what does the new firmware do and whes will it be available ? Will it fix the M2 card problem ?

I dont know about this M600i being phased out - it is a great machine for e-mail and text, only lacking a camera to be perfect.

So most likely there will be a follow up model with camera. But the current version will be around for a long time since there is no shortage of paranoid corporations and govt organizations who are banning cameras.
