Tell your phone off - Sony Z555a with gesture control


Imagine the ability to decline calls by just swiping your hand over your phone. Sony let us play with the new, stylish Z555 model that works by gesture control. With its diamond design and reflective finish, the Z555a is an attention-grabber. When your phone rings, the caller's name appears on the outer shell, a very cool effect.

To buy this phone you have to really love the gesture feature - handy when driving - as it only has a 1.3 MP camera and lacks a Walkman media player. But for $179 (although with carrier subsidies it could be as cheap as $29 with a two-year service agreement) it's a fun, basic phone.

Available in "Dusted Rose" and "Diamond Black" colors, but probably won't be available until February '08.
