      Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

  • Good to see SE developing these phones. I used a SE T610 for about 5 years and it served me well. My only complaint about earlier SE phones was their charger/earphone ports. They tend to get lose very quickly.
