Sony Ericsson announces its first Android Walkman phone, the W8 - read the full textSony Ericsson has just announced its first phone from the Walkman series to run Android (or the other way around). By the looks of it, the W8 is an XPERIA X8, but with a bit of fancy colors and a WALKMAN logo. Just like its brother, the X8, the Sony Ericsson W8 sports a 3-inch capacitive...

WTF SE? You are seriously degrading the Walkman brand by putting it on a chunky and ugly PoS like the X8!

@Law, Nokia actually copying from SE! Nokia X series (X2,X3,X6,X7) doesn't it copying SE XPERIA X series (X1,X2,X8,X10)? SE have the naming scheme since the 2008 P1i.

@zamroni, read the spec, it's 16M color, you blind.

That thing looks more like an Xperia x10 mini. Look at the size of those earbuds in comparison.

They left out the most important spec. How much storage does it have? If it's going to be a primary music player, it better have enough storage to hold all of my songs, so I don't have to constantly shuffle songs between my computer and phone.

A bit disappointing, rather clunky and only a 600mhz Arm 11 cpu, now that is some cheap sh1t...

Looks like SE is wringing a few more dollars from the aging Walkman brand. Probably a good business move, as the flagship model is being dedicated to another brand. xman
