The Nokia 8310 is the exact same form factor as the 6510, in fact, with a slight modification, the external cases are completely interchangeable.
The 6510 has a much higher screen resolution, more memory, an additional game, an enhanced calendar (weekly view) and an "electronic wallet" feature that allows you to securely store and use your credit card info when making WAP purchases (whether anyone actually uses that feature is another thing).
The screen resolution alone is a huge improvement.
But guess what. The 8310 has girly, glittery colors. Therefore, it costs up to US$40 more than the 6510, and it's more popular.</strong><hr></blockquote>

I'm not just buying it because it's glittery, it's got the most useful feature set (for me).
