Sony Ericsson has announced a new phone born out of its design teams' "love for the materials and colors found in the natural world." You would expect that means a phone made of hemp, patchwork and blue sky, but it actually came out more like a mood ring.
The Sony Ericsson S500 is a 14mm slim slider with color accents and 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.
The phone also includes regular phone functions such as a 2.0 megapixel camera, a media player and expandable Memory Stick slot.
