Sony Ericsson’s C510: cheapest 3G Cyber-shot 3,2mp mobile phone – 2009 best selling with more appsBy rmr_view • Mar 26th, 2009 • Category: ! Daily Info & Reviews, Mobile Phone
Sporting the Cyber-shot brand, the C510 is geared up to be another of Sony Ericsson’s photo-majoring mobiles. It’s not one of the high megapixel-count big hitters like the C905, however; the 3.2-megapixel cameraphone is instead billed as Sony Ericsson’s most affordable Cyber-shot phone so far.
Its camera capabilities may be the big shot feature – it has an autofocus system with extra gadgetry like Face Detection and Smile Shutter, plus LED flash – but it also has a comfortable mid-tier level of functionality inside.
It’s a 3G-enabled, HSDPA-equipped handset, supporting fast audio and video downloads and browsing, video calling, and has a bunch of standard-issue Sony Ericsson online-based applications including Google Maps and YouTube and blogging upload options onboard. Music and video players and an FM radio maintain the entertainment quota.
Mobile network operator 3′s customised version of the C510 adds a few extra apps too, including an integrated Facebook application, Skype internet phone calling capability, and Windows Live Messenger instant messaging.
While preceding devices have the K-prefix as the product name, the C510 is the first of Sony Ericsson imaging devices with the C5-prefix in front. From the outside, one could easily mistake it for the Nokia 6300, which recently ended up in the top three of the most-sold handsets for 2008. Obviously, the form factor of the C510 and 6300 is a key factor in marketing this phone.
Sony Ericsson announced the C510 on 08 January 2009, which is the eve of the landmark Consumer Electronics Show 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This is the cheapest Cyber-Shot device on the market . The Smile Shutter and Face Detection are notable technologies that are included in this device. Face Detection focuses on human faces, and Smile Shutter detects a target’s smile and shoots the photo right away.
The Sony Ericsson C510 has a 262K TFT colour screen and comes with 100 MBs of memory, which is expandable by means of a Memory Stick Micro slot.
It would be that the C510 ends up in the top 10 list when they compile 2009’s best-selling mobiles
this phone would likely outsell competing products with similar specifications.
