Sony Ericsson on Monday unveiled its latest Android smartphone, dubbed “Live with Walkman.” With a name almost as catchy as Nokia’s failed “Comes with Music” offering, the new Live with Walkman smartphone is powered by Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system and a 1GHz processor. Other spec highlights include a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, a 5-megapixel camera, Sony’s xLOUD audio and a Walkman music experience featuring integration with various social networks. “Consumers want smartphones to deliver a rich and social entertainment experience. Rather than a one dimensional music experience, they want instant and seamless access to new content, combined with the ability to share and connect with their friends,” said Sony Ericsson’s head of product marketing Nikolaus Scheurer in a statement. ”The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman provides exactly this, in a powerful package with great style.” Sony Ericsson’s full press release follows below.
