Sony Ericsson unveils ‘Live with Walkman’ Android phone

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.

Samsung to begin rolling out Gingerbread to Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab this month

Samsung on Monday announced that it will finally begin rolling out Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to its popular Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab devices. Samsung had started to roll out Gingerbread last month, but was forced to halt the update due to a bug identified shortly after it was released. Samsung has apparently addressed the issue, and the update will release the update once again this month beginning in the UK and other European countries. The Android update, which will require users to connect their devices to Samsung’s desktop software, will then roll out to North America and other regions at an unspecified time. Hit the break for the press release.

Internal emails from Google manager suggest Android isn’t so open

Internal emails from Google manager suggest Android isn’t so open

The “is Android open?” question is one that constantly fades in and out of focus on blogs and in the tech media. The latest snippet that will undoubtedly reinvigorate the argument was revealed this past weekend, and this time it’s not a pretty one for Google. As part of Skyhook Wireless’ lawsuit against Google, which alleges that the company interfered with a contract that placed its services on Android phones sold by Motorola, several internal emails have been made public by a Massachusetts state court. Collectively, the emails provide various insights into the business strategies employed by Google’s Android team. One email in particular, however, is attracting a great deal of attention. In it, Android Open-Source & Compatibility Program Manager Dan Morrill writes, we are using compatibility as a club to make them do things we want. In other words, we’re brought right back to the earlier revelation that Android partners can do whatever they want with the platform, but only those that play ball with Google’s compatibility requirements get preferential treatment, such as early access to new Android builds. Of course this time, the sentiment comes straight from the horse’s mouth in a relatively gruff manner, which doesn’t exactly do a service to Google’s repeated “open” claims.
