From the forum:
Sony Ericsson today announced two new mobile phones and introduces Smile Shutter technology which detects a person's smile and immediately takes a photo. The older C905 Cyber-shot model will be upgraded with several new features.

The Sony Ericsson C510 Cyber-shot is an addition to the camera range family. Hence the Cyper-shot name. The camera resolution is only 3.2 megapixel, but the rest of the camera features are better than the average camera phone:

  • Reliable 3.2 megapixel Cyber-shot camera
  • Smile Shutter – clever technology that detects a person's smile and immediately takes the photo!
  • Face Detection – focusing technology of up to three faces at a time
  • Auto-rotation – alter the landscape and portrait view by rotating the mobile phone
  • Snapfish by HP – pre-installed application allows users to send print orders from the phone to Snapfish and have quality photo prints delivered to their homes.
  • YouTube enabled – upload your videos and images straight to the web
  • Photo Fix – adjust light balance, brightness and contrast simultaneously
  • SMS conversation style – see your entire SMS conversation history at a glance
  • Slide in lens cover and illuminated imaging Shortcuts
  • Auto focus – take the best shot

Las Vegas, USA – January 7, 2009 – Enjoy music the way you want it with the W508 Walkman phone. Consumers can have the most interactive mobile experience as individual as they are, with clever technology such as Shake and Gesture control, SenseMe and TrackID, as well as one extra Style-Up cover with the W508.

"The W508 Walkman phone builds on our iconic Walkman range and the successful W380.” said Alexandre Cardon, Global Product Marketing Manager (music) at Sony Ericsson. "For those who like to express their style and individuality through their mobile phone we've brought our creative design team in to design stylish changeable covers so that W508 offers a truly interactive and individual experience.”

Shake control and Gesture control allows you to become your own DJ with just a flick of your wrist – raise the volume or set the shuffle function by giving your phone a quick shake. Is that alarm getting to you? Switch it to snooze or mute the volume with a sweep of your palm without having to fumble for the off button.

The W508 also includes popular Walkman features such as SensMe, for matching your mood to the music and touch keys on top to play, stop and skip tracks. A 3.2 megapixel camera, HSDPA and 1GB M2 card completes the W508 offering for any trend setter.

Can't get that song out of your head but have no idea what it's called? Use TrackID with text search and you'll have the answer at a touch of a button. Also available on the W508 is PlayNow arena which provides a full range of mobile entertainment downloadable from your handset - unique themes and wallpapers, traditional and specially developed ringtones and music tones, a wealth of free content and of course DRM-free music tracks and TrackID charts from around the world.

They're at a lower range and the software is improved; the C702 is outdoor-oriented while the W508 basically has the same features as W980 but at a really lower price (5-Class vs 9-Class) and thanks to the style covers is more youth-oriented...

So what's new? C510 is nothing more than C702 with cosmetic adjustment, and there is no more difference between W508 and Z770i.

Poor, poor SE... :(
