Sony Ericsson & Cingular Wireless introduce Z500a
The Sony Ericsson Z500a is available for connection to Cingular's EDGE (Enhanced Data for Global Evolution) network. The new mobile phone features a built-in digital camera with zoom, a built-in video camera that records still images and video clips with the click of a button, and offers entertainment features such as 3D gaming and music ringtones.

The Z500a uses Cingular's EDGE network to provide instant access to e-mail, games and information online. Cingular's EDGE network provides higher data rates and capabilities than the standard GPRS data network available from GSM operators.

The companies believe the Z500a's 65,536-color internal display is ideal for viewing images or games in 3D. Even when closed, the Z500a's external 4,096-color display serves as a viewfinder for capturing images and can display pictures to identify callers.

"Our partnership with Cingular allows us to bring the unique features of the Z500a to consumers who are searching for an affordable mobile phone that delivers all the must-have features in a sleek design," said Urban Gillstrom, president of Sony Ericsson North America. "This is Sony Ericsson's first EDGE-enabled phone and is the first in an exciting product portfolio line-up planned for US consumers."

The Z500a is available from Cingular Wireless for US$79.99, after a US$50 mail-in rebate.
