Another week, another Sony Ericsson Android smartphone. Today we’ve got a press release detailing the spanking new Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.
As the name suggests, Sony Ericsson’s latest smartphone offering is very much music based. A bit like the Sony Ericsson W8 Walkman then. Did that ever see the light of day? Does anyone care?
The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman has a dedicated Walkman hardware button, providing instant access to music goodness. Audio output is enhanced with Sony’s xLOUD technology, and - as with all new Sony Ericsson Android releases - "deeper Facebook integration" is promised.
Nikolaus Scheurer, Sony Ericsson’s Head of Product Marketing, said: “Consumers want smartphones to deliver a rich and social entertainment experience. Rather than a one dimensional music experience, they want instant and seamless access to new content, combined with the ability to share and connect with their friends.
“The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman™ provides exactly this, in a powerful package with great style.”
Specs? The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman has a 3.2in display, 1GHz processor, 5MP snapper on the rear and front-facing camera for video calls, 720p HD video capture, and runs Gingerbread (Android 2.3).
Availability? The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will touch down in "selected markets" in Q4 2011.
