Want a new device that’s economical? Consider the C510

from Mobile Syrup

This comes loaded with some great features such as a 3.2 megapixel camera with video capabilities, the ability to upload directly to Facebook or YouTube, FM radio, built-in GPS and this is a light device that only weight a mere 92 grams.

We played around with this for a bit and love how it feels in the hand. I mean with it weighing so little you forget it’s with you. This has dimensions of 4.21 x 1.85 x 0.49 inches and a 2.2 inch screen with a QVGA resolution of 240 x 320. The display is bright and makes viewing your pictures or videos a pleasant experience. They bot can be viewed portrait or landscape using the accelerometer. Speaking about the pics, the camera comes with a buffet of added features that make the camera way better than other camera phones out there. This has a dual LED flash, smile and face detection, auto-focus, digital zoom, picture editing and built-in GPS for geo-tagging your images....
