Sony Ericsson today announced another model in the Walkman series. The Live Walkman is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread model with a 3.2 inch touch display and 1GHz processor

Sony Ericsson Live Walkman announced 

Sony Ericsson Live Walkman is the second Walkman model running on the Android OS. It is a mid-range model with a 5 megapixel camera, 3.2 inch display and 320 x 480 pixel resolution with with Wi-Fi, aGPS, DLNA and HSPA network support. So why does it deserve the Walkman brand name? It has a collection of music services which do not exist in other Sony Ericsson models.

  • Infinite button - Click to enable instant access to content about the favourite artist, such as music videos, artist information and lyrics search
  • Qriocity music and video content service from Sony - Where consumers can access songs from all major labels and watch thousands of movies from a major studios. Only Sony Ericsson Android smartphones provide consumers with unique access to the entertainment services from Sony.
  • Sony xLOUD technology - Enhanced audio output of the built in speakers at high levels
  • TrackID - Music identification service

All Sony Ericsson Walkman phones have a Walkman player application. We are not sure if the Walkman app found in the Live Walkman model is something beyond the generic Android but with a tiny Sony Ericsson twist such as Equalizer and Walkman brand.

Live Walkman has a deep Facebook integration like many other new Sony Ericsson smartphones. Most media content such as picture gallery, music, contact and calendar details can be shared and synced with Facebook.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia adds the four-corner Home screen navigation for easy navigation to commonly used tasks.

That's pretty much a reskinned mini, bar a few minor differences. Looks ok, though.

HD recording is a nice update to have and it stands out from the crowd, which is always a plus.

SE should include the Karaoke and Zappin Features too in this Live, those features are in the Mix Walkman
I don't see any reason why not including those Features?
That will really make this Phone Different from Xperia and Other Music Centric Phones out there
