The internal screen is capable of showing 65,536 colours, and when the phone is closed its external 4,096 colour display serves as a viewfinder for capturing images, a display for Picture CallerID, which shows the name and picture of the person calling, or allows the user to read text messages without having to open the phone. The Z500i synchronises with a PC and will be available in Q4, 2004.
