Xpress-on™ panels
Besides three standard colors you can choose one of the offered panels. They differ not only in color but in functionality as well. So Xpress-on™ Active Covers have translucent front panel, during a call the phone doesn't only vibrate but winks with all the cover. There is only front panel in a set for Xpress-on™ Active Covers, the back one remains standard. There are three types of panels available (SKH-634, SKH-635 and SKH-646).
Xpress-on™ Gaming Covers: as it follows from the name these panels are for games, the main difference is not only in colors but in key forms, they are accomodated for games (SKR200 and SKR201).
Xpress-on™ Covers, Reactive Painted: only one panel SKR202, it gleams in the dark
Xpress-on™ Art Covers, Reactive Graphics: there is graphics both on the front and back panels, also gleams (SKR209, SKR-256).
Xpress-on™ Covers, standard, there are only 4 of them - SKR-210, SKR-211, SKR-212 and SKR-253.


The Nokia 3510 was the replacement for the hugely-popular Nokia 3210/3310/3330 phones. Featuring an updated front panel design, the 3510 is the same size as the older Nokias, but lighter. Like the 3410, the Nokia 3510 has all of the features that made the 3210/33xx so popular - downloadable ringtones, Xpress-on™ covers and great ease of use. But it introduces some new technology within the familiar exterior. New features include polyphonic (MIDI) ringtones, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and GPRS (fast, always-on internet access).The X-press-on covers available for the Nokia 3510 include some specialised functional covers, such as the gaming cover. Snap on the gaming cover, and you can really enjoy the 5 built-in games, which make good use of the phone's polyphonic sound and vibration effects.
