Sony Ericsson Z500a Reviews
Cnet Reviews takes a good look at the new cell phone from Sony Ericsson Z500A :
?Last year, Sony Ericsson took a break from its typical sleek candy bar handsets to introduce its first flip phone, the Z600, and truth be told, we were disappointed by its bulkiness and lack of style. Fortunately, the company cleaned up its act with the Sony Ericson Z500a cell phone, which sports a slimmer and more attractive design. The handset also boasts a VGA camera with video recording, a media player with support for streaming music and video, and solid call quality. But it?s not without its faults. For such a multimedia-oriented phone, the Sony Ericsson Z500a could use a better screen and more memory.
With a quick survey of the Sony Ericsson Z500a?s feature set, you?ll notice an entertainment and multimedia theme. ?
