You may well have missed it in today’s deluge
of Sony product announcements, but the company showed off the latest device to carry its age-old Walkman brand. The 4.3-inch
device runs Android Gingerbread, and is still in its early stages at the moment, carrying the fairly uninspired Walkman Mobile Entertainment Player moniker. The device has an HDMI port that can be used to play things like mobile games on an HDTV. Sony seemed far less interested in that functionality than its Throw feature, however, which offers up wireless transfers to devices like the company’s Bravia TV line. We gave it a whirl, and the whole thing was rather painless, even in a setting like Sony’s booth, where the place is lousy with Bravia sets. The device, it seems, isn’t quite ready for primetime, so we don’t have any word on pricing or available yet. Check out a video of the Walkman in action, after the break.

Four months after unveiling
the relatively bare bones W8, Sony Ericsson has now taken the wraps off yet another Walkman phone, known as the Live with Walkman. Powered by a 1GHz processor, this Android handset features a 3.2 inch, capacitive touchscreen (with somewhat disappointing HVGA resolution), a five megapixel AF shooter with 8x digital zoom, and a front-facing VGA camera capable of capturing HD video in 720p. The petite, Gingerbread-equipped device also packs a lackluster 320MB of RAM, provides up to 32GB of microSD storage, and offers either tri-band 3G support (HSPA+) at 850, 1900 and 2100MHZ, or dual-band 3G at 900 and 2100MHz, depending on the model. And, as you’d expect, Sony Ericsson has placed a special emphasis on the music phone’s media capabilities, beefing it up with enhanced audio and Qriocity integration. The specs may not sound earth shattering, but we’ll wait until we get pricing information before casting judgment. The Live with Walkman is slated to hit “selected markets” by Q4 of this year, but you can find more information in the full PR, after the break.
