The W580 is a 1.4cm-thick device with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity. It sports a 2in, 240 x 320, 262,144-colour display and a two-megapixel camera, and comes packaged with a 512MB Memory Stick Micro card for song storage. There's an RDS station ident-reading FM radio on board too, and the handset's Bluetooth link supports A2DP wireless stereo.
