In addition to unwrapping its new C510 Cyber-shot on Tuesday, Sony Ericsson also announced an upgrade to its existing 8.1-megapixel C905 Cyber-shot model.

Starting in mid-February, C905 owners can download a software update from Sony Ericsson's Web site that will bring new features to the camera phone. They include smile shutter, a feature that will automatically shoot a picture when the camera detects a smile, and direct integration with YouTube and Snapfish for faster and more convenient uploading of photos and videos. The upgrade also will add WayFinder 8 for GPS navigation and that will let you see an entire text conversation.

Sony Ericsson also announced a new version of the C905 in tender rose (aka pink). It will be available in the first quarter of this year.
