The buzz surrounding the Sony Ericsson aka Kate Cyber shot camera phone has finally been unveiled as Sony Ericsson C510. This new C510 is touted to be the successor of Sony Ericsson K770 with enhanced “Cyber-shot” functions compared to its predecessor. C510 comes with a 3.2-Megapixel camera which is able to perform autofocus, face detection and smile shutter.
