i wireless Launches More New Phones

I know I'm a bit behind, but i wireless has added a number of new handsets in the last month or so:
  • The Nokia 2610 is the successor to the Nokia 6030 (which is the successor to the Nokia 6010). All three phones support data, but their smaller screens make navigation a bit arduous and the lack of Bluetooth, infrared or a data cable port means that you have no way to connect your phone to your computer. If you want to use data services, I recommend skipping the low-end phones and going for a model that is a little fuller-featured.
  • The Nokia 6126 is a thinnish phone with a push-button flip (Anyone out there remember the Ericsson T28 World phone?). This is a great choice if you are going to do any browsing of the internet or viewing images on your phone. The size, color, resolution and brightness of the screen is incredible! It's been a while since I tried it out, but I believe it also has some auto-complete features that remember websites that you have visited in the past, so you don't have to repeatedly type in those long URLs again and again.
  • The Sony Ericsson W710i Walkman is a great choice for anyone that is active, loves music and does not want to be weighted down with multiple devices when you go on your morning run. Even if you haven't side-loaded your entire CD collection to the phone, you can still listen to music, as it has an FM radio that will even autoseek the strongest stations in your area. Any the W710i comes jam-packed with extras included in the box: A USB cable, an arm-strap and holster, even a removeable memory card! From a data standpoint, I am a huge fan of Sony Ericsson. Sony's success in gaming (PlayStation), imaging (CyberShot), audio (Walkman), and video (Wega) has really started to show through in SonyEricsson's entire mid-to-high-end handset lineup. Navigating the web is almost a joy on a Sony Ericsson, ranking right up there with the Motorola RAZR.
  • The Sony Ericsson W300i has many of the features that make the W710i great, but is more of an "everyday" music phone at a more affordable price point.

We have also added new colors of some existing models are anticipating a few more new phones in the coming weeks. Hopefully I will have some time to tell you about those later. If not, keep your eyes on http://www.iwireless.com/phones.asp for any new arrivals.
