I think the pricing on the 6155 is very interesting. Considering the 6255 was $699 when it came out and the 6155 is a massively better phone, $499 is a steal

1MP camera but noe bluetooth:-(

What, apart from the camera resolution, makes the 6155 massively better? I have looked at the feature comparison on Telecom's web site, and the only other benefit of the 6155 appears to be a slight advantage in battery life compared to the 6255.

Given that the 6155 and 6255 are the same price, I personally would prefer the 6255 for the bluetooth functionality. Still, the trade-off between the camera resolution and bluetooth functionality is probably a matter of personal preference.

Fair enough! Although, at the risk of sounding cynical, I think we'll have to wait until the 6155 has been on the market for a while before we can be sure about whether it's likely to suffer any glitches. I don't think anyone anticipated the problems with the early 6255s.
