Reducing security risks from open source software

Review Like the rest of the mobile big boys, Sony Ericsson has been upping its cameraphone firepower, with top-of-the-range, multi-megapixel sharpshooters like the 8.1Mp C905 and the forthcoming 12Mp Idou flying the flag for its photo-centric Cyber-shot line-up.

Sony Ericsson's Cyber-shot C510: a nicely proportioned, slimline handset

But as well as these flagship mobiles, Sony Ericsson has been taking care of business lower down the Cyber-shot phone ranks, by introducing the C510 as its most affordable Cyber-shot handset yet.

The C510 doesn’t flex the big megapixel muscles of its more upmarket sibling - it packs a modest 3.2Mp camera - but it does cram in a decent range of camera gadgetry to go with it, including face detection and Smile Shutter software.

Sony Ericsson has also loaded up this HSDPA 3G phone with a familiar roster of mid-range features and media applications. As well as standards like the YouTube viewer, Google Maps and picture-sharing apps, on its version of the C510, UK operator 3 has also added a Facebook application, Skype and Windows Live Messenger to the mix.

Sony Ericsson doesn’t veer too far out of the ordinary with the C510’s candybar design. It’s a nicely proportioned, slimline handset that resembles the C902, albeit without any of that model’s touch-control.

Easy on the pocket and the hand

Measuring a reasonable 107 x 47 12.5mm and weighing 92g, it’s easy enough on the pocket and feels robust in the hand. Its bodywork is finished in black with silver and steel-blue trim, or silver with grey edging. It’s an understated but classy look.
