Live with Walkman from Sony Ericsson

August 22nd, 2011

History
Sony Ericsson’s first notable venture into the world of Android…the Xperia Play, didn’t fare so well (poor sales?)

Present
Sony Ericsson has now released the Live with Walkman. This is a music focused phone that seems more in line with Sony’s more successful mobile ventures. (cassette Walkman?)

Information

Sony Ericsson has launched a new Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) smartphone it has dubbed the Live with Walkman. The handset differs from previous Walkman branded devices in that in addition to a dedicated quick access music hardware button, it also features deep Facebook integration for sharing and discovering new music. It’s music-centric focus is also evidenced by its tight integration with Sony’s Qriocity subscription music service.
The Live with Walkman centers on a 3.2-inch mineral glass display and is powered by a single-core 1GHz processor matched with 380MB of RAM. A front facing camera is enabled for Skype video calling, while a 5MP AF camera can capture 720p video recording. The device also uses Sony’s xLOUD to enhance audio output.

One has to admit…This is a HOT looking phone!

It’s a nice departure from the depressing world of black and grays currently saturating the smartphone market.

As far as functionality…every Android phone (as far as I know) has that ability to play music. However, there really hasn’t been one that is so music focused like this new Sony Ericsson.
I just hope that Sony has a hit device here and will continue to innovate in this space. There are no real competitors to the iPod any more since the Zune went away 🙁

I must say i am disappointed with it. It is merely a Widget-badge for the site and i was expect that the widget would display more advance data if you clicked on of the video slots in it. Or that i would generate a lightbox that would allow it to play. It does neither. So what you see in the photo is as good as the real thing, Minus that it links to the Landing page of the video. The only redeeming qualities of it are that it is light, it got a good look and that there is no way but up for it, once they update it. So i hope Andrew Baron (Mag.ma CEO and RocketBoom creator) makes the widgets better and more worthwhile to have. And sets up a page to show them without having to log in too.

But the website itself its good and at least there is a official widget-badge  for it, right?.
