The Sony Ericsson C510 is a bar-shaped mid-range Cyber-shot that should hit the shelves in two months. Previously known in Rumor land as the Sony Ericsson Kate, we now finally have it's model number, a nice photo and the full specifications.
Recently there has been a lot of confusion over leaked photos of two Sony Ericsson handsets that will look almost identical - the Sony Ericsson Kate (now C510) and the Sony Ericsson Phillipa. We posted pics of the 5 megapixel Phillipa not long ago, taking it mistakingly for Kate. But now the confusion is over.
The Sony Ericsson C510 is armed with a 3-megapixel sharpshooter with auto focus and goodies such as face and smile detection. Unfortunately it only has a LED flash, as the xenon unit is reserved to the Sony Ericsson Phillipa. Traditionally for Cyber-shots, the C510 also has an active lens cover and camera shortcuts that light up when you need them.
The 120 MB of built-in memory is expandable with an M2 card, while the 2.2-inch QVGA display rounds off the specs.
Unfortunately, there's no word on pricing or planned availability.
