Either way, the bright 1.8 inch 262K TFT display provides razor sharp pictures.

    Gamers will be stunned by the S600’s widescreen mode. For the first time games can be played with the screen horizontal, enhancing the widescreen detail and excitement of games and giving a console gaming experience. The directional buttons on the left and dedicated game action buttons on the right of the screen are used for two handed control, and gamers can make full use of these with the pre-installed 3D versions of Worms Forts: Under Siege 3D developed by THQ Wireless, Extreme Air Snowboarding developed by Digital Chocolate and a new multiplayer version of Midway’s Gauntlet™, developed under license by TKO Software. Games can also be played in a more conventional portrait mode or an L-shaped mode using the keyboard and the S600 supports multi-player peer-2-peer gaming via Bluetooth™.

    Stereo sound can be enjoyed through the headset packaged with the phone or with friends through the phone’s powerful stereo speakers with MegaBass and Stereo Widening™ to enhance the sound. The S600 is supplied with music copying PC Software and a USB cable for fast transfer of music and images from the PC. If a call comes in when the user is listening to music on the headphones, the music fades out and resumes when the call is finished. As the ringtone sounds through the headphone, the chances of missing a call are minimised.

    Downloading games and ringtones is easy with PlayNow - just one click to get online, preview games or listen to ringtones from a frequently updated selection, then another click to download.

    The SE S600 will ship in the fourth quarter of this year.
