Light Effects on Mobile Phones

Posted on November 20, 2007 @ 7:45 pm

I recently had the opportunity to check out some of the new mobile phones on the market.  What I was looking for were the standard features such as mp3 player and camera, but I also wanted to find something that would make my phone stand out from the rest.

The phone I ended up buying was the Sony Ericsson S500i.  It had all the standard features that I would expect from a current phone including MP3 playback, camera, movies and Bluetooth.  But what really caught my eye was the light effects the phone generated.

What are light effects?

Essentially the phone has LEDs built into both sides of the handset that generate different combinations of colors and lights depending on your settings.  Now, you cannot customize the light effects, but there are 22 of them that you can choose from.

Anytime someone calls you on your S500i, you can expect people to stop and stare at the marvelous light show in your hand – just the reaction I am looking for.
