Can’t decide if I should get either of the above phones. I like them ‘cos they’re flip designs though specs wise, they’re considered a down a downgrade from my Nokia N82. The T707 looks more stylish than the W508 but while the former has 3G capabilities, it doesn’t have full support for videos calls as there’s only 1 camera on the phone… which means people can see you during a video call (assuming the phone’s "closed")… but you can’t see them because the screen is closed! Sort of stupid right?
I am however pleased that the phones’ camera doesn’t come with auto focus… which I believe means there won’t be the irritating red light when you take a picture. This is very important for taking discreet photos of people (esp. when I see someone/something funny/stupid on the MRT). The auto focusing light on the N82 makes it too obvious for this sort of covert shots. Hehe.
Anyway, I’ll probably wait a while till the price of the phones drop (the W508 was launched recently and the T707 should be launching soon). :) No harm checking them out and reading up on user opinions meanwhile!
