The Sony Walkman has been reincarnated yet again -- this time on Android. The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman, aside being quite the mouthful, is a 3.2-inch Android 2.3 smartphone with some seriously deep music integration (nothing new for SE phones), as well as deep integration with Facebook.
Hardware-wise, you're looking at a relatively small device -- it weighs 115 grams and measures in at 56.5 x 106 x 14.2 mm. It sports a 1GHz processor, pushing Gingerbread and SE's custom UI on that 3.2-inch display, which only sports a 320x480 resolution. (Hey, it is just 3.2 inches.) It's got 320MB of on-board storage, and comes with a 2GB microSD card. There's a 5MP camera on the back that will record video in 720p, and its 1200 mAh battery is rated at up to 17.5 hours of music listening time.
And speaking of music, this thing's loaded. It's got a dedicated hardware Walkman button, and you might remember the "infinite button" from the previous iterations of its Mediascape UI. The infinite button is back, sending you deep inside the Qriocity music service. It's also got xLoud, which is said to enhance the sound coming out of the phone's speakers, and TrackID, to, well, ID what you're listening to.
No word on specific markets just yet, but look for the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman in the fourth quarter this year. More pics and a full presser are after the break.
