Finally, a camera phone that doesn't completely suck. The Sony Ericsson S710a piggy-backs a hefty 1.3 megapixel digicam (enough resolution to print a decent 4-by-6), 8X digital zoom (not a real zoom but better than no zoom at all) and flash. With its unique design, it looks like a compact camera until you swivel open the faceplate to reveal the keypad underneath. It's also a decent MP3 player, with a Memory Stick DUO slot that'll take up to 1 gigabyte of music.
