Walkman Lives On With Sony Ericsson "Live With Walkman"

Before there was the iPod there was the Walkman, an iconic audio player that was a hit many years ago. Fast forward a few years ahead, the Walkman is now refreshed by Sony Ericsson and is dubbed the "Live With Walkman" powered by a 1 Ghz Processor running on Android 2.3 AKA Gingerbread. This Android handset sports a rather tiny 3.2 inch scratch resistant (gorilla glass perhaps?) HVGA resolution capacitive touchscreen, a 5 megapixel autofocus rear shooter with 8x digital zoom and a front facing camera with 720P video capabilities.

The Live With Walkman handset is equipped with a disappointingly low 320 MB RAM with a microSD expansion slot that allows you to take the storage up to 32 GB. Despite this uninspiring specs, the main focus is on the audio and Sony Ericsson has added enhanced audio and Qriocity integration on the device.

No word on the pricing yet but the Live With Walkman is set to be released some time in Q4 so we'll know soon enough how much this device will cost and see if that pricing justifies the poor specs of this walkman device.
