This phone has some advantages to offer and can manage to find its way through the market. The small size of a phone with such good 1.3 megapixel camera, lightning fast interface, great web browser and fair connectivity options can compensate the lack of memory card slot and the poor display.

This phone has some advantages to offer and can manage to find its way through the market. The small size of a phone with such good 1.3 megapixel camera, lightning fast interface, great web browser and fair connectivity options can compensate the lack of memory card slot and the poor display. With the reasonable price put by the manufacturer, there is no doubt that Sony Ericsson K510 will have lots of fans and satisfied customers.

Sony Ericsson K510i Mobile Phone

Nice little phone, takes excellent photos for a mobile phone, doesn't hold much music but you can get around a ten songs if your mp3 files are small, overall a very good low budget phone.

I had a Sony Ericson K800i and have had it since it's lauch over 2 years ago. But I dropped it in water and it's now unrepairable. My contract is not due for an upgrade for another 5 months so I needed something decent, like the K800i but for little money. After looking around I found this litte baby which has everything you need, it's very easy to use and has the same layout as the top of the range phones like the K800i. It is a lot smaller than the K800i and nice to easily slip into your pocket etc. It's only fault is it doesn't have a memory card slot. so all those great photo's & video's you take, have to be downloaded onto your PC. it does have quite a big standard memory for such a small phone but I like to keep my photo's, music & video's on my phone. So please Sony, put a memory card slot in this phone and you've got a winner! and I would have given you an excellent rating. Hope this helps. (Lover of Sony Products)! Less

The K510i is a small, sleek stylish phone without having the large price tag! It is great for anyone who isn't really into all the gadgets that you get with some phones (however it does have a few). It has some great features like funky picture frames. It is easy to use and a great size so it fits in small bags/pocket easily. All in all this is cheap, easy to use great phone and I would definately recommend it! Less

Sony Ericsson's K510i Great Little Phone

from eBay
As i needed a replacement for a broken phone i decided to buy a cheep Sony Ericsson yo get me by. To say i underestimated this phone would be an understatement. It had most of, if not all of the functions it's bigger brotjers have. It is really easy to use with a nice slimline design.

How to get a iPhone, Wii, PS3, 360 for nothing

The Free iPhone Guide To get yourself a free iPhone all you have to do is follow the 3 easy steps: Step 1 : Sign up for a free iPhone Sign up at the link below to get your free iPhone.

The Free iPhone Guide To get yourself a free iPhone all you have to do is follow the 3 easy steps: Step 1 : Sign up for a free iPhone Sign up at the link below to get your free iPhone. We recommend this free iPhone site because it's been TRIED and TESTED to work. http://Gifts.real-incentives.com/2992 (copy and paste into browser) You can choose other prizes like free consoles from this site too! Make sure you use a real email address. Use your real details when you sign up so that the company knows where to send your iPhone! Remember that they have been proven legitimate, so will send you your free iPhone if you do everything legitimately! Step 2 : Try an advertiser's offer Basically all you need to do in this step is complete one of the offers, this is where the freebie site make their money, if you complete an offer then the freebie site will recieve commission for it. So if you complete Coral which will only cost you £5 to complete, the freebie site gets £25 from Coral. The two best offers are Lovefilm Free DVD rental (rent two DVD's, keep them for about 2 days, send them back and then cancel the trial) and Coral (bet £5 on a sport). I would reccommend you do Coral as it credits in an hour and is really simple to do, Lovefilm however can become complicated and takes up to 2 weeks to credit! You can also try one of the other offers, most are gambling offers. Don't skip this step! You must complete this step to get your free iPhone! Step 3 : Refer some friends This part is a lot easier than it seems, especially now with free iPhone sites getting so popular. There's lots of people online who want a free iPhone too, so start referring them! You only need to get a few signups before you'll be finished. You can ask your friends or your online buddies. I already got a free PS3, Wii, and XBOX Elite without even having to ask my friends for help - there's lots of people online who want a free iPhone like y... Less
