Description

This is the american version of Sony Ericsson Yendo. The phone has a 2.6-inch touchscreen and the same user interface found on the X8 and X10 mini. However, under the custom UI, there will not be Android, but Sony Ericsson's proprietary platform. Still, the Yendo will bring along all that you love about Sony Ericsson's Walkman phones, including the Walkman player, TrackID and PlayNow, as well as features like a 2MP camera, 3.5mm jack and 156MHz processor.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
