Sony Ericsson S500 – slim sliding style
( Mobile-review ) - Another interesting novelty inaugurated today was the S500 slider, focusing on the looks. Steve Walker, Steve Walker, Head of Product Marketing at Sony Ericsson: "Our designers have taken inspiration from nature and the Nordic light to produce phones that are beautiful to look at and alive with energy. They appeal to those that want to celebrate their individuality and express themselves through their choice of phone".
Though, the S500i is not only about unusual color schemes. The designers also made their best to fill the handsets with energy. The visuals on the desktop or phone menu can change automatically as the seasons pass or as day turns to night. Hidden illumination appears to highlight a certain event and the keypad glows with energy when the slim slider is opened.
The Sony Ericsson S500 is a 14mm slim 2.5G slider phone (GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900), available in either Mysterious Green or Spring Yellow. It will be in the shops in selected markets from Q2 2007.
