Sony Ericsson T630 spotted!

This phone is very similar to my first phone Sony Ericsson T616 (T610 in the US). When I brought my T616 to Japan, I was surprised Japan has never seen such petite camera phone. At 95 gram, it's not even 100 gram. And it's the popular camera phone when there were very few camera phones. EDIT: bought it!
