Sony Ericsson YENDO Walkman Phone

Last week we were rather busy with bringing you the highlight products from E3 so we had to postpone this news to this week. Sony Ericsson unveiled their first Full Touch Screen Walkman Phone, the YENDO. Yendo boasts a design similar to the XPERIA X10 Mini including the four-corner touch UI. It also sports a 2.6 inch size screen with 262k colors and 320×240 resolution. It is 81 gr, comes in a dimension of 93.5 x 52 x 15.8 mm, has 720MHz of processor, 3.5 mm audio jack, Bluetooth, Micro USB support, pre-loaded with Facebook, Orkut, and Twitter apps, FM radio, Java as well as Bluetooth stereo (A2DP), MP3/AAC music tones, Walkman Player and TrackID. It has a rather weak camera with 2.0 Mpixel only with 4x digital zoom.

It will be available from Q3 in 10 diverse colors: Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Silver, White and Yellow. No word on pricing.

    “Yendo” is an interesting name.

    Will the phone/walkman be called “Dollardo” in the US,
    and perhaps “Eurodo” in Eurozone? :) :) :)
