Have you actually seen it on sale yet, because from what I've seen it will be July.

Released and iN the Shops are different things. And let's try those phones head to head before deciding Sendox is dead. Given the keypad differences (andi;ve tried both) the 7610 looses a lot of poitns here.

Well said.

I read a post yesterday from someone who reckoned they'd bought the Sendo in France. They said the screen was dark and the build quality was poor.

I was surprised to read this. Anyone else heard similar reports?

The Sendo is NOT in the UK shops yet either, so even July for the 7610 would not be an issue having waiting this long for the X.

Anyway, the nokia looks a clear winner over the X... Symbian 7.0s, shorter, thinner, better looking, more features, Java MIDP 2.0, better camera.... and so on.

If the X had been ready at christmas, as first thought, then I would almost definately have got one, but now it's just too old, and too late. Sendo simply took to long to get to market and allowed the competition to catch up and overtake them.

Maybe when Sendo do an X2 and they getting to market quicker I will look again.

"More features moamoa?".
Could you tell me about all these features the 7610 has over the Sendo X? I'm going to buy one of these phones and just don't know what to go for!!

Are you sure? Ok, N7610 has 1 megapixel camera, but the X has stereo output and hot-swappable SD/MMC. But offcourse it depends on what's important to you...

Yes, the problem of the sendo x is that the ram is only 4 mb!

How do some of the other more recent smartphones compare to the x in regards to ram?

winalex did you notice that the X did actually suffer due to its very limited 4/5MB when running 3rd party programs? btw, how did ram hungry 3rd party programs run?

are there actually any symbian apps that require more than 2-3 meg of RAM??? I used to have a 7650 and only Doom and Opera got near the 2MB of RAM that I always kept free, but then there were no other places to store files, photos and movies compared to the X which has SD/MMC capability.

In reality, IMHO I think you will find that as long as you have other places to store files (32MB of onboard memory + SD/MMC with the X) 4-5meg of RAM wont be a problem for any symbian app or game.

I think people are getting confussed with RAM and Storage space.
32mb RAM for onboard storage and 4mb RAM for running apps.
Think of it as your PC, there is RAM memory and RAM Hard Disk space...

Sound just fine and dandy to me.

The 6600 has:

C: (Flash) = 6 MB
D: (RAM) = 1.4 MB
E: (Your Memory Card) = 128 MB
Z: (ROM) = 22 MB

What do people make of this?

These are totals NOT free.
