m510 basic?!

i understand with technology advancing as it does,but there are still more phones out there with vga cameras and no sd slots then there are with those features that are basic. since when did having 1.3mp camera and sd slot become basic as we were reminded about 400 times during the video. as was stated when the m510 first hit phonescoop,its a scaled up m500,which isnt basic and its a scaled down m610.

It's all somewhat relative. The M510 isn't "entry-level", but it's nothing special by today's standards.

To be high-end these days, a phone needs to have something special, like a touch screen, smartphone OS, 3+ megapixel camera, etc. Just having a long list of common features doesn't mean what it used to.

The M500 was a solid mid-range phone when it came out, but some time has passed and technology has advanced a bit since then. Compared to the M500, the M510 is larger, heavier, has less memory, and lacks a 2.5mm headset jack. The only way it's a "scaled up" M500 is in size. Given all of that, I have no problem calling it "basic" by today's standards.
