Sony Ericsson Debuts Android-powered ‘Live with Walkman’

Sony Ericsson has announced a new iteration of the iconic Walkman series  today in the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.  Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the device features a 3.2-inch display, 1 GHz processor, and 5-megapixel camera (720p video), and 320MB internal storage.  The Walkman comes with a 2GB microSD card with the option for up to 32GB add-on storage, USB, Wi-Fi, GPS, and all the stuff that makes Android phones great.  Just remember, this is not a phone!  Of course, this guy also has a ton of preloaded features and content based around Sony’s portfolio, including Timescape, Qriocity, xLOUD technology, and Track ID.

The specifics as to which countries (globally in selected markets) are expected to offer the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman are not yet known but we should look for a fourth quarter rollout.

    This looks very much like a re-packaged Xperia Mini, which is quite a good thing as the Mini UI runs like like lightning.

    The only thing that worries me is how Sony Ericsson are going to differentiate a Walkman phone from other smartphones on the market.  I’m guessing that those stereo speakers are good quality, but if the rest of it is just apps, a button and branding then I’m not sure why I’d choose this over another Xperia device (which would have a better screen or camera)

    Sony has missed a trick, this should have more storage capacity for offline music and video, certainly at least 120-160Gb.  By supporting only microSD this device is like every other PMP and Smartphone that isn’t Apple.  

    There is definitely a market for an alternative to the iPod Classic that is Android based.
