Sony Ericsson Z550i

 

Sony Ericsson's folding phones have always been made to appeal mainly to two audiences: women and youth, and also business-users, or it'd be better to say those who favor technologies above everything else. While the handsets for the former group were...

The model comes in two trims - Pearl Copper and Sterling Black - at that the front and the rear differ from the rest of the casing color-wise, since they are made of metal. To highlight that, they have etched the front panel. In fact, up until now...

Sony Ericsson Z550i

 

This phone does the basics well and adds a sprinkling of extra features, but we did have some issues relating to textual dysfunction.

Solid construction and chic design ; Good balance of business and fun

Top buttons sometimes stopped responding when phone was opened quickly ; Phone not optimised for the Web and music features it offers

Sony Ericsson Z550i

 

The Sony Ericsson Z550i has two colours schemes available, SterlingBlack and Pearl Copper (the black one being the "blokey" handset, and the copper Z550i the "girlie" one, we presume). The Z550i will ship to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia...
