There's a radio - just look at the picture of the interface on the pictures page.
N95 is big, style-wise and design, this one is better.
By features, this one loses out by a couple of steps, not taking in the infamous 5MP that Nokia's bolted on.
Otherwise, this is an S series because I think SE is releasing a S for Style series. It's just exactly like the W580, but not branded as Walkman. It's more of the Ericsson line of SE phones. the W series is the Sony line of SE phones.
Just like how the new P1 is named the way it is instead of P999 or so on. It is because everything, is becoming simple again. P1, for PDA/Smartphone series, model 1.
btw, it's not a clickwheel. On the higher resolutions pictures at SonyEricsson.com, there is a small engraving on the top of the round d-pad that's in the shape of the camera application.
We should be seeing more S series that look like the W series, but only more stylish and redesigned. I mean, I bought a MOTO RAZR V6 Maxx because it had the touch-sensitive buttons, and all because of the style.
Just like how people buy the LG K and KG series for it's touch-sensitive looks.
Why can't SE run in the design race with also taken for granted features like a 2mp camera, EDGE, A2DP, Walkman 2.0 application and of all, SE quality assurance. Even these little things beat many designed based phones.
The Prada phone and LG shine series excepted.
this phone is beautiful. now im confused as to which one i want...w580 or s500...w580 has radio...which this doesnt...that's the only feature i noticed that differs. but gosh this phone arouses my material desire...hopefully their prices wont rape our pockets when they release...
How can you compare this to the n95 =.="
one thing this does have the n95 don't, is a better design! well in my opinion.
Also the UI looks interesting.
Nice design! But what is the difference between this slider and SE w580. Their specs are very similar.
this phone is very cool, plus i think it got a wheel key which seems on the picture, very good i say!
what's the difference between this s500 and w580i apart from the looks. In any case, I have to admit, I love the design, the color, for me it's the best...it's just that SE should come up with some new exciting features - put some 3G/wifi etc. Then, they'd surely be the best. Oh, and again, the difference between s500 and w580i, anyone?
Does anyone know when this phone is going to sell? Is this phone going to be available in the U.S.?
Shame it hasn't got any 3G, hopefully SE will have upgraded the video-recording capabilities of this phone.
