( M ) - Designed to be a more affordable (and slim) version of the W850, the Sony Ericsson W580i takes on the same sliding form factor and a fairly similar setup in terms of keys and features. And it's coming to the States... first. That's right, Sony Ericsson has actually created an attractive-looking handset that'll make its worldwide debut in the USA, rather than off in Europe or Asia.
You get an orange-anodized aluminum back, a bright orange numerical keypad, slightly rounded edges for a softer feel, and that terrific music-playing ability you've grown to expect from a SE Walkman phone. To top it off, the SE W580 has also got a 2.0 megapixel camera for candid photo opportunities. The glowing event lights are pretty nifty too.
