Polyphonic tones support (SP-MIDI)
The 3510 comes with a polyphonic-enabled speaker which allows MIDI tones to be played for ringtones, message tones and games. If you’ve previously used a Panasonic GD-series phone with similar ringtones and you’re worried about the soft volume, not to worry - as these MIDI tones are louder than you’ll ever need them to be! And if you miss those standard tones, some of them are still available from the ringtone list.
WAP over GPRS, with Push Inbox
High-speed, always-on access to the Internet is possible on the 3510 - just as long as you have such a subscription with your network service provider. Compared with traditional dial-up over CSD, speeds can be up to 4-5 times faster.
Larger, high-resolution LCD screen
The 3510 boasts an improved screen with higher resolution resulting in greater clarity. Text is now shown with a slightly larger size while graphics can fit comfortably on the entire area of the screen with no trouble at all.
Internal dynamic memory for phonebook, messages and calendar entries
Dynamic memory is used on the 3510 to share memory space between phone book entries, messages and calendar entries. Up to 500 phone book name entries (with 3 numbers and 1 text), 150 text-only / 50 picture messages, 3 MMS messages, and 100-500 calendar notes (depending on length) can all be stored in this area of the phone’s memory.
Concatenated (long) SMS, picture messaging and MMS support, with T9
The standard set of messaging features, including concatenated (long) SMS and picture messaging, is supported by the 3510 - which is further helped by the T9 predictive text input system. MMS support is also provided, where the phone supports the receipt of such messages only.
Calendar feature with full month view
Found under the “organiser” menu, the inclusion of a calendar feature on the 3510 is most definitely welcome. A full four-week view is displayed once entering the calendar, allowing easy identification of “days of week” and dates with recorded notes or appointments.
Built-in games supporting polyphonic sounds
A set of five built-in games are available on the 3510 (including Space Impact II and Kart Racing), with the possibility of downloading additional game levels for the respective games once they become available (via the “game services” option). As well, all these games come with polyphonic tones support - where such sound affects should add some flavour to the already-existent beeps and buzzes :)
Gaming Xpress-on cover accessory
On top of the poly sounds that come with the games, you also have the choice of purchasing gaming Xpress-on covers for the 3510. These covers provide a slightly different keypad configuration with its primary purpose of enhancing the gaming experience even further.
Screen saver feature
The 3510 comes pre-loaded with a list of static and animated screen savers, with the option of being able to download others via WAP or saving them from an MMS or picture message. An analogue and digital clock screen saver is also available.
The 3510 supports the downloading of both standard (monophonic) and polyphonic ringtones either via the “tone services” option (under the “Tones” menu) or via the WAP browser.
Automatic keyguard feature
The 3510 comes with an automatic keyguard feature, allowing the phone’s keypad to be locked by itself after a pre-defined delay. This feature can be accessed from the phone’s “Settings” menu.
