Today Sony Ericsson USA announced the release of the S500, a device derived largely from the W580 Walkman handset we saw launched at CTIA earlier this year. This 94g (3.3oz) handset sports design flourishes such as themes that change between night and day, weekday and weekend, or as the seasons pass.

The quad-band GSM/EDGE S500 offers a sharp 262k color, QVGA resolution display to view photos shot with its built-in 2 megapixel camera. Photos, music, and video clips can be stored in the internal 12MB of memory, or on a Memory Stick Micro card - not included. The S500 does ship with wired stereo headphones and the Disc2Phone software, and is compatible with Bluetooth A2DP wireless headphones as well.

The 14mm thick S500 will be available in either green or yellow when it starts shipping in Q2 of this year, some time before its expected North American debut in Q3. No pricing information has been provided at this time.
