Best practices for enterprise data

Rotten news for eager geeks awaiting Sony Ericsson's super camera-phone, the T610, with Bluetooth. No, you can't even read a review of the thing; they're being recalled. It's not a problem, though, says S-E.

SonyEricsson T610

According to Michael Oryl, editor of Mobile Burn, he's been unable to write his review, because the phone produces an irritating hissing sound in your ear. "It doesn't prevent you from using it," reports Oryl, "but it is noticeable." It will take three weeks to get a replacement, he says.

Sony Ericsson says it has investigated this report, and denies there's an issue. "We are aware of a problem with some early models," said a publicity official, "but it was a very small glitch on a very short production run, and that problem has been eradicated. We certainly aren't recalling them; we're just replacing those models where users find the hiss excessive."

The phone itself includes games, an email client, and the ability to use either GPRS data or even HSCSD services on GSM, but is being sold as a games/picture phone.

According to the Mobile Burn story there is a report in a Swedish news source which corroborates this. It may well do, but it can't be easily judged - so just for fun, we submitted the Swedish text to an online translation service, which gave us the following information:
