Sony Ericsson C510 - Pocket-lint

 

Well constructed and easy to use, there is plenty on offer for those looking for the Internet on the move. But not without some shortcomings

HSDPA, good build quality, great keypad, social networking applications

Cyber-shot functions a little poor, no 3.5mm jack, battery life

The integration between applications and the homescreen is refreshing - seeing your Facebook updates or RSS feeds scrolling across the screen gives the impression that things come together nicely.

A Cybershot Phone : Sony Ericsson C510 Cybershot

 

If you were to line up all the different mobile phones end to end, I wonder how long the line would stretch. Sony Ericsson has added to this length with a new Cybershot model.

A recent addition to the Sony Ericsson product portfolio is the C510 mobile phone. This is a candy bar style handset belong to the Cybershot range. Predominately black in colour with a silver band running around the edges, the review unit measures...

Sony Ericsson - C510

 

The C510 from Sony Ericsson is a Cybershot handset that sits in the middle of the current line-up in terms of specifications. It is a small and light phone, its candybar design is familiar and it ...

The C510 is a solid mid-range Cybershot handset. Its key design won't suit everybody and the Web browser leaves a bit to be desired, but overall it does a good job.

Sony Ericsson C510 Review

 

The right of the C510 is home to the two way zoom control which also takes care of volume and checking your devices status (battery life etc.) The shutter button is located at the opposite end to this and as you can see that clean, attractive blue...

Small compact design ; Dual LED flash

3.2 Megapixel Camera ; 100MB Internal Memory

The Sony Ericsson is a combination of both massive potential and mild disappointment. The lack of real power in the camera department is - if I'm honest - a let down considering this is advertised as a Cybershot device. However, it does make up for it...

The on-board memory is miserly, as is the lack of a microSD card

A great all-rounder, and a good choice for a mid-tier handset.
