Phoney smiles all around
Sony Ericsson has launched its first cameraphone with integrated smile detection.

Smile Shutter technology on-board that C510 ensures that the phone’s 3.2-megapixel camera only ever captures your subject’s pearly white grin. Sony also plans to add the feature onto its flagship 8.1-megapixel C905 phone.
Up to three faces can also be detected by the C510’s camera. Snapfish, Hewlett-Packard’s application for ordering prints of pictures taken on the phone, is pre-installed.
Music, images and videos - the latter can be uploaded directly onto YouTube - are stored onto Memory Stick Micro cards.
