I must note that the photos quality is very very poor.

I agree that this is a very nice phone, the OS/Software is easy to use, but really the quality of the camera cannot be said as "OK", it is quite useless IMHO.

    The T610 is an absolutely amazing phone, taking into account every feature .. including the size. Yes the Nokia 3650 may have a better picture taking resolution, but let's face it: the phone is a beast and no one wants to carry a "remote control" around in their pocket. The T610 is all around one of the finest phones available.

    Well, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But, I certainly do not classify the T610's integrated camera as useless. If you look at the

    article comparing the T610 camera with other mini-camera systems
    I have on my personal site, you can see it actually compares pretty well with higher resolution cameras. Does it compare with a 5 megapixel camera? Not really. But, it sure is a lot easier to carry around and more likely to be with you for something interesting to photograph. I think the T610's camera is quite acceptable for what it was intended to do: Let you take quick unscheduled photographs anyplace and anytime. Are the photos suitable for an 8x10 print? No. Are they suitable for a 4x6 print? Well, with a little unsharp filter work and some contrast enhancement, the resulting prints can be ok. Certainly better than not having the photo at all. And, that, to me, is the value of any of these camera-phones. You can get the photo you would have otherwise completely missed...todd

    You don't make clear your frame of reference.

    Are you saying that it is poor by the standard of cameraphones at this price-point, or are you making an absolute aesthetic judgement that pictures below a certain quality threshold are of no use.
