Sony Ericsson will be launching the S500 very soon. The iPhone effect is prompting ever handset vendor and every other carrier expect AT&T to get something out as quickly as possible to stop the tide that everyone is expecting with the iPhone launch in June.The sleek slider features a compact design at 3.9 by 1.9 by 0.6 inches and is rather lightweight at 3.3 ounces. The S500 will be shipping in two colors, "Mysterious Green" and "Spring Yellow," which, according to Sony Ericsson, were selected to reflect nature. However, the more notable style feature is the handset's lights that automatically glow to indicate different times of the day or the changing seasons. The S500 will also feature various menus that will constantly change as the day moves into night.
The S500 does include some substance with its style, and offers up EDGE connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0, USB support and a 2-inch QVGA display. The handset also has a robust multimedia feature set with a 2-megapixel camera and a music player with support for MP3, AAC, AAC+ and eAAC+ files. The S500 also supports stereo Bluetooth and has a Memory Stick Micro expansion slot.
The Sony Ericsson slider rounds out its features with some calling and messaging options, such as a speakerphone, SMS, MMS and mobile e-mail.I am waiting for the Motorola's answer to iPhone.
