CES 2009: Live Report
7510 for T-Mobile
The Nokia 7510 is a mid-range flip to be released with T-Mobile USA. It is designed as a fashionable Series 40 device with its interchangeable faceplates (few colors included in the sales package) and extremely shinny keypad. The keys were somewhat hard to press and do not offer a lot not a lot of travel. Because they were so shinny, it was sometimes hard to read the numbers and letters imprinted on them. Another flaw that we noticed were the scratches on the back silver panel which we noticed on all three units we tested on the show flow. Those units otherwise looked very new.
The opening of the flip can be either done manually, or through a button located on the side. It worked well sometimes, while a few times it needed a lot harder push on the button to open the flip.
The main display was nice with good contrast and brightness and a monochrome external one.
The 1006 is a low-end CDMA device expected supporting the 1700 Mhz AWS band, so it is expected to be released with MetroPCS. The device is very light, fitting well in the hand. It is slightly curved, to make it more ergonomic when put next to your face. The keypad is large enough to accommodate well the keys. It would have been a great entry level, if only the display was a little bit better, and by better we mean higher resolution.

I'll take one. And I guess I'll need one of those Touchstone wireless chargers as well.

this is a good article! im sorry, but it definitely needs to be cleaned up--serious grammatical errors and poor syntax plague the entire page.
