Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman and Android Gingerbread announced
Sony Ericsson has officially unveiled a new Walkman smartphone that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread: the Sony Ericsson Live. The handset is not really new, though, since it’s just a refreshed Sony Ericsson WT18i, which was announced back in May in China.
The SE Live measures 106 x 56.5 x 14.2 mm (just like the WT18i) and features a 3.2 inch HVGA (480 x 320) scratch-resistant display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, deep Facebook integration, a dedicated Walkman button for instant access to the music player, Sony xLOUD technology for enhanced audio output, TrackID, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth, 5MP autofocus camera with 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 1GHz processor, and a 2GB memory card pre-installed.
The smartphone also provides access to Sony’s Qriocity music and video content services (not available in all markets).
The Sony Ericsson Live will be released starting Q4 2011 in “select” countries. Its price is unknown for the moment – it shouldn’t be a high one anyway.
