Just remember folks this is not a high end phone, so it's normal not to have so many features in it. If you want a high end phone you should either go with the X2 or X10. This is a simple, sexy design phone for people who love to enjoy music! And also want a reliable phone to use, Period!
P.S: keep in mind that the more the simple means the less you will have problems with the phone, and the less you will need to take it to maintenance so thumps up! Let SE rock the music world again, because they are simply the best when it comes to music.
WooooooooW great move SE! people have been waiting for Walkman phones for some time now. So getting them back in the market is a good decision. Your doing well, just keep the good work going on.

btw, i think zylo's got some gorgeous curves (side view) and that back looks pretty damn smooth.
Looove to see one up close~
These are LOW-END walkman phones with UPDATED UI (ux).
Upgraded audio experience, and threaded text and the bunch. Lets wait for review to see what these phones are like =D
You guys are right, its not a bold refreshing design. But its good lookin and functional for the rest of the public, whose not always up to the minute of new cellphone trends.
Bricked, 13 Apr 2010Wha???? FLAC SUPPORT? I That was meant to say "I love Flac" "coughs"
The first time SE announce a .flac capable phone. Those codecs demand alot out of a CPU, and would be interesting to see how laggy the GUI gets when playing one on the Zylo. No mention of a DSP which is a slap in the face for a music-orientated phone (likewise with XpressMusic).
So far, Samsung is the only company I've seen with DSP chips in their phones bundled with DNSe v3, but they sound crap which is why I'm sticking with SE (regardless of how bad their phones are; as long as it doesn't freeze and restart randomly on me, I'm happy)
Owning a W980, it gets darn laggy when playing back music files. And this is with plain 320kbps .mp3. I would be more than happy to live with the lags if there was a firmware upgrade that enabled .flac, but then that's a distant dream ~sob~
Guys come on!!!! this low ring phones, cheap and good sound for young teenagers, if u r looking for high end walkman go for AINO, it does not have a walkman sign, but still have all walkman features, if u go to music app, u will see that it has all the music features u imagine, plus high end features, also coming with very good bluetooth music headset... its perfect
and there is an upcoming touch walkman coming very soon for mid-range fans.... so Sony Ericsson doing right.. they want to cover the market with all ranges.
if SONY just couldn't give some phone abilities to this http://www.mytechmix.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/sony-walkman-x-series-610x467.jpg ...it would be perfect Walkman Phone

A full touch Walkman phone is on its way. Will be released in Q3. Soon to be announced.
I can still see the stupid Pop port!!!!!!! Its not gone yet. I dont like it. It should vanish.
i don't understand why se stopped having a real walkman series, because imo walkman is a big name that says a lot, like ipod. they should release some kind of high-end device, with a touchscreen, gps, wi-fi, hsdpa, etc. (and a real marketing campaign) in order to boost the brand's credibility and popularity.
all hail zylo!! supports HD FLAC? on a phone? now that's first (AFAIK :p)!
Hmmm, low entry phone, with low prices. GOOD..GOOD..GOOD for unrich people.
For the rich people, you can go for X10 or Vivaz
i agree with anonymous that sais that all we want is updated w995......yes i dont mind releasing these cheap phones for kids...keep in mind that not everybody has lot of money....but yes..w995 was near to perfect....make something that looks like that....big screen with touch...great keyboard also....great camera and walkman with all its goodies.....ppleeaassee.....w995 was near to perfct...now u have to make it perfect...and really really really send the fastport to heaven....to be in peace .....it is 2010....
2 of the 3 "Music phones" have fast ports. If a phone does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, the word "Music phone" should never ever be used. Nokia offer similar phones at much better prices, all with 3.5mm audio jacks.
Thank you SE but no thank you. Just know this and I know I am the only person in the world saying this:
No 3.5mm jack = No Buy!!!
They're lacking something. I can't put my finger on it...look at Spiro, it looks a bit similar to W760i but W760i is boasting uniqueness and coolness that is definitely lacking in Spiro. It's just not memorable.
To be honest I'm waiting for the W995 successor with a 3 inch NON-TOUCH screen (not everyone wants dirty finger marks over their screen), FM transmitter, 8mp camera with xenon flash, and everything W995 already has.
Also I wish SE would STOP with those dopey names. "Spiro".."Zylo"...they don't sound like music phones to me.
