Sony Ericsson Bet by a Phone/Walkman with Android

The Consortium Sony Ericsson It has officialland theunched the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman, a Android phone with a look very similar to the Xperia Mini, but with the particularity that their strong will be the music playback. In the past Sony already tried, as other companies, remove part of the cake from the music industry to Apple and its iPod, but all attempts failed, either by the player, the business model or the music catalogue. With this new terminal, half phone, half walkman, then back to the battle, but this time betting on the best of each House.

In his white (or black) body of 5, 6 10, 6 × 1, × 4 centimietros and 115 grams weight will be hosting a 1 GHz processor (probably the same Qualcomm Snapdragon single – core that they host the Xperia Mini), with 320MB of memory base and possibility of microSD expansion. On the front it will feature a 3.2-inch TFT type (16 mill. of colors) with a resolution of 480 × 320 pixels and scratch-resistant.

The front camera VGA type, it will be more than enough for the functions of video calls with Skype and the rear camera will be of 5 MPx accompanied by LED flash, allowing you to record video at 720 p, In addition to all the advantages of a compact camera: stabilizer of image, red eye reduction, faces and smiles, self-timer and the ubiquitous autofocus detector. Not discussed, but it is possible that one of the side buttons can be used as auto button approach and shot, as it happens in other models of the Xperia range.

By the musical part Sony Ericsson will include the best of House, thanks to its new Timescape and own Qriocity video and music services. Applications to recognize songs and also full integration with the network of Facebook, which together with the Twitter, will allow share your applications and musical tastes with the rest of your contacts, all fully integrated and without much complication of use.

Its speakers have included les proprietary technology xLOUD, you will get to enhance the quality of the sound. One of the buttons of his side will serve as direct access to the application’s Walkman. If you fed up of music you can listen to your FM radio, some of what theand theck most of terminals Android and that many miss.

With regard to Android will, as it should be, the version Gingerbread 2.3 and this will be the same layer Timescape you will also have the Xperia range and we were able to see and test during the official presentation of the Xperia Mini. This new layer power all the social issue and it was only logical that they take it to a mobile phone whose secondary purpose is to listen to music and share content and media experiences with your contacts.

To conclude, the terminal will be fed with a 1200 mAh battery, that according to Sony Ericsson will be provided him a box of autonomy of about 14 hours on call under GSM network or something less than half under the UMTS network. If we use it for listen to music We can be more than 17 hours enjoy, but will be only slightly more than 6 hours If you want to use it for See videos.

We hope and wish that this new proposal from Sony Ericsson, get to materialize in a market already occupied by several companies and services, seeking to become the big piece of cake that runs Apple. For the account that brings us, being an Android, we wish you the best and hope that it soon fall into our hands when presented in Spain, although up to the last quarter of 2011 will not be their official presentation.
