Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman runs Gingerbread, dropping in next quarter
The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is calling itself an Android smartphone which delivers a unique social music experience. It’s apparently in too deep with Facebook and the music function is easily accessible with a dedicated Walkman button.
The curvy appearance of Sony Ericsson Live is touched off with a glossy finish and 3.2” mineral glass display. Resting its cares on a 1GHz processor, the handset has a front camera for making those Skype video calls as well as a 5MP snapper capable of 720p HD recording on the back panel. The last mentioned bundles in 8x zoom, auto focus, LED flash, geo tagging and face detection among other features.
“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,” explained Nikolaus Scheurer, Head of Product Marketing, Sony Ericsson.
This Android 2.3 Walkman phone includes Sony’s xLoud technology for enhanced audio output. It’s clearly rooting enthusiastically for audiophiles and entertainment buffs with TrackID, Qriocity music and video content services from Sony as also a media discovery application. The onboard memory of 320MB can be expanded by up to 32GB with the embedded microSD card slot.
There’s nothing on the exact pricing or availability details of the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman phone apart from the information that it will be out in select markets some time during the fourth quarter.
