New Android smartphone takes music walking
Tuesday 23 August 2011
Sony Ericsson has taken the wraps off its second Android-powered Walkman phone, a media-centric device dubbed the "Live with Walkman."
The handset follows in the footsteps of its W8 Walkman predecessor, the W8, and bears a resemblance to Sony Ericsson’s slightly smaller Xperia mini in looks and features.
The Live with Walkman differentiates itself from the rest of the Android pack with enhanced music features (such as a media discovery app, dedicated Walkman button, xLOUD in-built speaker loudness booster, and TrackID) but falls short in the tech specs department with what Engadget calls a "lackluster 320MB of RAM" and a "somewhat disappointing HVGA resolution" 3.2" capacitive touchscreen.
The Live with Walkman is expected to be launched in selected markets globally in Q4. Pricing has not yet been announced.
