The Sony Ericsson S500i is a mobile phone manufactured by Sony Ericsson.[1] The phone was announced in May 2007[2] and released in the 3rd quarter of 2007.[3]

It is a slim slider phone,[clarification needed] measuring 99 x 47 x 14 mm and weighing about 94 grams with its Li-Ion battery. It has 12.0 MB of internal memory, which can be expanded with a Memory Stick Micro. It includes a 2.0-megapixel camera with 4X zoom, and it provides video recording, streaming, and viewing. The music player can play AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and MP3 files. The phone also has support for EDGE, GPRS and Bluetooth.[2][4]

One feature is that the UI and external lights changes color depending on the time of day, day of the week or with the seasons.[5] The largest women's magazine in Switzerland, annabelle, and Orange Switzerland are releasing the S500 as a fashion mobile phone which is specially targeted at women. This package features the S500 together with other fashionable accessories such as a lanyard.[6]
