Sony Ericsson introduces second Walkman handset

Joint Swedish-Japanese mobile phone manufacturer venture Sony Ericsson has launched the 'Live with Walkman' mobile phone, with a faster processor and better music features than ever seen before.

Sony Ericsson’s Live with Walkman now joins the Android-like Java OS based Mix Walkman with its Karaoke abilities which was launched in June, although there was a Google mobile OS based W8 Walkman back in April – which was their older X8 handset with new software, but this only shipped in Asia.

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will tip up with a 3.2-inch touch screen, whilst powered by a 1GHz processor where the Mix device ran from a 600MHz variant.

This mobile also ships with a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash, capable of 720p HD video recording whilst the front facing version can be used for video chat with the likes of Skype.

Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 is the platform of choice on the Live with Walkman phone and contains various music based features, such as a dedicated button for accessing music and an ‘Infinite’ option for displaying content from artists - with Sony's xLoud for enhanced audio output from the inbuilt speakers.

Sony Ericsson hasn’t made available any prices as yet to the Live with Walkman handset, only that the device will be arriving in Q4 of 2011.
