The Walkman brand is one of the most well known brands associated with Sony. We have all owned Walkmans before the ipod happened to us. When Sony decided to put the walkman label on their phones it made them the number one music handset selling brand.

Earlier this year Sony said they will be putting an end to the Walkman products. Being a satisfied walkman phone user myself, I bid an emotional goodbye. But in the android age SE has again introduced an awesome little phone which is live with walkman.

They earlier launched the SE W8 walkman android but it had a very old android OS (2.1 Eclair). That made it a bad buy.

Anyway, SE has recently launched a new Walkman android LIVE WITH WALKMAN which will certaily make a splash here is what it has to offer


Screen: 3.2 inch capacitive multi-touch screen with a resolution of 320 by 480 pixels. Its also scratch resistant.

Connectivity: 3g (HSDPA) , Wifi, Edge, Bluetooth, Usb

Operating System: Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Upgradable to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich)

Processor: 1 Ghz Snapdragon Processor with Adreno 205 GPU

Loudspeaker: Stereo Speakers with Sony's xLOUD technology for louder music.

Radio: FM Radio with RDS

GPS: yes, with Assisted GPS

Weight: 115 grams

Camera: 5 mp with 2592 by 1944 pixels. It has Geo tagging, image stabilization, Auto focus, LED flash. It can record 720p video and also has a front VGA camera for video talking.

In my opinion this is a great phone which should satisfy the needs of any audiophile and give a decent android experience. Its price in India is approximately Rs. 13,990.
