Sony Ericsson announces two new phones that are borne out of their designers love for the materials and colours found in the natural world. The Sony Ericsson T650 fuses illumination effects with a stainless steel finish and scratch-proof mineral glass, whilst the S500, a slim slider phone, reveals desktop and menu themes that change over time.
The Sony Ericsson T650 is all about detail. The illumination effects on the keypad and the sides of the phone interact with animations on the screen. As these animations move across the display they set off waves of light around the keypad, which stand-out against the reflective stainless steel finish.
Take a look at the Sony Ericsson S500 and expect the unexpected. Open the 14mm slim slider to reveal colour accents and ever changing desktop themes. You set the in-phone themes and external light effects to change when you want - with the seasons, as day turns to night or when the weekend begins.
