From the forum:
Sony Ericsson today announced the Z550 clamshell camera phone with 1.3 Megapixel camera and Tri-band support.

The 1.3 Megapixel camera has 4x digital zoom and takes great snap shots and video for capturing those unpredictable moments. These can be viewed on a crisp, bright colour display. With 20MB of onboard memory expandable to 1GB, it's simple to store and share a large collection of pictures using MMS, Bluetooth or e-mail.

"The Z550 has an exclusive, understated feel that's a tribute to our iconic phone the T610, and features a 1.3 megapixel camera, unusual for a phone in this sector" said Jan Wäreby, Corporate Executive Vice President, Head of Sales and Marketing, Sony Ericsson. "In all, the Z550 is a phone that breathes quality and value."

Sony Ericsson Z550Finding shots once you've stored them is child's play with the new thumbnail gallery feature. This allows you to search your images both visually and according to the date they were taken with multiple thumbnail images being shown on the 262k sharp colour screen.

The Z550 connects easily to a PC for fast transfer of multimedia files and synchronisation with your phone book and calendar. The phone also has full HTML internet browsing and optional Bluetooth™ headset and car-handsfree kit for wireless freedom on the move.

Friends z550i is excellent. I love it whether its camera, mp3 player or radio. great. the voice quality is very great its just like digital home theatre system.

Buy it and see you'll find what we were really needing in the cell phones. A stylish cel phone with all the great features. Moreover the best thing is it looks like a phone not like those nokia big phones which are not easy to carry.

Go for it.

Great design. I agree. It resembles the memorable T610 (my first SE) within a touch of more style and features. Good camera, good for the expandable memory. The black-and-metal combination is always modersm up-to-date.
