Sony-Ericsson Z558 touchscreen phone at FCC

Sony-Ericsson Z558

Though announced at the same time as the US-oriented Z550a, the Sony-Ericsson Z558i as originally released was intended mainly for Europeans. The cellphone maker inadvertently revealed today trhough an FCC filing that the more exotic Z558i will arrive in the US soon. Though otherwise an average flip-phone with Bluetooth and a 1.3-megapixel camera, the Z558 is unique for including a touchscreen and stylus for handwriting recognition as well as simplifying other functions that would normally be handled through buttons. While pricing and the choice of providers are still well away from being known, an FCC appearance usually means that a formal launch will take place within the next several weeks. A regular photo of the Z558i is available after the jump.
