Sony Ericsson S500 slider phone
I'm not in the market for a new phone right now, but I must admit that the upcoming S500 from Sony Ericsson has me casting forlon glances at my aging Treo.
Hitting North America in Q3 of this year, the sleek 2.5G (GSM/EDGE) slider is equipped with a 2-inch color TFT display (240 x 320), music player, Web browser, 2-megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom, 3D games, and themes and illuminations that change according to time of day and/or time of year. The pocket- and purse-friendly S500 measures 3.9 x 1.9 x 0.6 inches, weighs 3.3 ounces, and will be available in Spring Yellow and Mysterious Green (mysterious, I suppose, because most of the phone is actually black?).
Sony Ericsson hasn't announced pricing yet, but everything else is in the official press release.
