This Walkman is still learning to walk. But it sure knows how to mix. One part spicy, one part sweet, sprinkled with sexy and fun. Just donít expect it to mix business with pleasure.
This is not a smartphone. Smartphones come farther down the road. It looks like a long way for the Mix Walkman and it takes music to go.
The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman is a fairly basic handset with music, Wi-Fi, stills and video. Itís a touch phone with a neat and efficient interface, good hand fit and customizable body. Affordable and simple to use, itís not ticking boxes and getting serious stuff done. Itís not in a rush to grow up.
An entry-level phone, the Mix Walkman is trying to stay focused on features that are relevant to its target audience. Having covered its music and social bases, it carries no unnecessary weight. Itís an upgrade of the Sony Ericsson Yendo though and has something to show for it. The bigger screen and Wi-Fi are worth noting.
Workís been done on the software too. Sony Ericsson have done their best to emulate the Android experience with the four-corner UI. Thereís Facebook and Twitter integration too through the Friends app. You can follow the status updates of five of your friends right on your homescreen.
Weíll get to that in due time but first things first. The hardware checkup follows right after the break.
