Sony-Ericsson Z550a Z558i

Sony-Ericsson has released several new cellphones today, two of which are designed with international callers in mind and which bring some extra style to the relatively plain mid-range. The Z550a shown here is a quad-band GSM world phone built for North Americans with Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and support for up to 1GB of Memory Stick Micro storage for songs in an AAC or MP3 format (25MB of internal memory is also present). The Z558i is a more advanced version that drops the built-in memory to 18MB but also adds a touchscreen, which is a rarity in a mainstream flip-phone. Sony-Ericsson says the feature is helpful for handwriting recognition when composing messages or editing the address book - an important consideration for the Chinese who will be the first to adopt it in October. The cellphone developer has not announced a definite launch for the Z550a other than the near future. Photos of both phones are available after the jump.
