Hello guys. I am really getting this handset. If only it had Wi-Fi, then it will sure draw some serious competition against E51, i550w and N78 (but without counting the S60 OS, that is).
But then again, Wi-Fi is too much to ask in what they call as the "cheapest-Cybershot-ever" handset. So Wi-Fi should be excluded on your wish lists and make no mistake about that.

But actually, I doubt (and I mean real doubt) if this C510 will make its way to be on a price the same like the current price of the K770.
Just take a closer look at these specs:
1. 2.2 inch screen
2. Accelerometer
3. 3.15 Megapixel Autofocus Camera with LED flash
4. QVGA video recording at 30 frames per second
5. Face Detection, Smile Detection and Geo-tagging via cell triangulation
6. Tri band HSDPA.

Got my point?
Don't you think that those features are a bit high to be thrown to the midrange?? I mean, come on people! Even the expensive C905 also records at QVGA 30 FPS, has a 2.4 inches screen estate (which is just 0.2 inch smaller than the C510 which is what they call as affordable?). And another thing of note is that, even the C902 which by the way is expensive as of the moment, is only gifted with a 2 inches screen? (sounds strange isn't it?) Anyway, I know some of you are laughing at what my point is. But the fact that SE rarely load all of these in a so-called "affordable" handset led me into pondering all over.

So I'm hoping that SE will mark their word on their statement that this handset will be positioned as an affordable Cybershot. And please GSMArena, publish the price of this phone via your news section as soon as you gather info with regards to pricing of this handset. Because it seems like, I am getting paranoid on these features to be ever taken into consideration in an affordable handset.
Now don't get me wrong here. If ever it will be a midrange or an upper-midrange handset, I will still get this phone because of its feature load and I'm also hoping that the LED flash of this phone can also serve as a video light.

Péease explain to me:
What do you like in this phone?

The G900 had much better specs.
Yes, it was a failure because of software problems, slow CPU etc.

IT was given away free with a contract (cheap) or 300USD.
Now, this one has:
no touch screen
smaller screen
no Wifi/WLAN
only 3MP camera
(although G900 had a lousy 5MP)
video only QVGA

How much this phone gonna be?
150USD?

Is this made by Sagem also?

Please explain!

About the design..

Keypads.. look like K530s
Call/End keys.. look like K660s
D-pad.. look like C702s
The side and back cover really look like C902s..
So there's nothing new about the design..

BUT

The phone looks decent, simple, yet elegant..
At the beginning I wonder why there's rounded shape between soft keys and numeric keypads.. But then I realise that is to balance rounded active covers at the back..

Nice design..

Not the case, this is an offordable phone for someone who doesn't want stupidly high spec features, and just wants a phone that does a job with decent features, it's all you need! People who have these C905's and Innov8's and BLOODY iPhones, just greedy! You don't need none of that.
