Sony-Ericsson W580

Sharing in the CTIA announcements, Sony-Ericsson this afternoon added the W580i to its lineup. Pitched as a streetwise device, the 0.55 inches thick phone is one of the first Walkman sliders available outside Europe and uses its design to get attention: sliding it open or hitting the Walkman button triggers light effects along the edges. It also packs in a pedometer that calculates calories and distance, and comes with both a 512MB Memory Stick Micro for AAC/MP3 songs and an FM radio for when stored music runs out.

Read ahead for launch details and a photo of the phone in its subtler Urban Gray paint scheme.

Also a 2-megapixel camera phone, the W580i is a quad-band GSM device with EDGE for Internet access and should arrive in the US and the rest of the world during the summer. A special W580c version will be available simultaneously for the Chinese market.
