The essential guide to IT transformation

Video clips can be uploaded to websites just as easily. The C510 can capture footage at limited 320 x 240, though its 30f/s recording rate provides smooth playback.

There's no bundled M2 memory card here

The C510 doesn’t come with a memory card, although it does support Memory Stick Micro card expansion. The 100MB of on-board memory will need supplementing if you want to make the most out of the phone’s media apps.

The music player may not be Walkman-branded, but it still delivers a very respectable audio performance. The UI is very intuitive and simple to operate: it’s configured with track categories set up for artists, albums, tracks, playlists, audio books and podcasts. Tunes can be synced using Sony Ericsson’s supplied Media Manager software, dragged and dropped in USB mass-storage mode, or transferred wirelessly using Bluetooth.

Sony Ericsson has again chosen to hook up its earphones using a proprietary plug on the side, and unlik Walkman earphones, the supplied headset doesn’t feature an in-line 3.5mm adaptor. The C510's earphones are of average quality but they do an acceptable job. Wire-free A2DP Bluetooth stereo headphones can be used too.

Sony Ericsson's standard menu layout

Listening to the on-board speaker isn’t too harsh on the ears – it can be cranked up loud without excessive distortion, though it’s typically short on bass frequencies. The functional FM radio can be piped through the speaker too. Sony Ericsson’s TrackID song identification software can be used with the radio, as well as for getting details of tracks you hear around you.
