Aside from news that it will be released in 2009, we’ve heard nothing new regarding the Sony Ericsson ‘Kate’. However, based on a post on the SEMC blog, we’ve got some new juicy tidbits for all those loyal Sony Ericsson fan boys out there.

We now know that the ‘Kate’ will be launched as the C510. The C basically confirms its part of the Cybershot family of mobile phones, but unfortunately, it’ll only feature a 3.2-megapixel camera as opposed to the integrated 5-megpiaxel camera we mentioned earlier. However, it still comes with autofocus, smile shutter, face detection, Xenon flash and active lens cover which makes it a pretty decent mobile phone camera despite the lower megapixel count.

It’s expected to be launched in Q1 of 2009. This is just one of the many reasons why you might not want to spend all your savings this holiday season.
