Just when some out there believed that Sony Ericsson's line of Walkman branded handsets were going away, we were greeted to its presence once again with the Spiro and Zylo
, but some were eagerly awaiting for an Android offering. The expectations of seeing an Android powered Walkman phone is surely rising as a Chinese forum leaked an image of what's alleged to be the multimedia oriented device. Going by the codename “TeaCake,” the Sony Ericsson W150i resembles the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini based on the image provided. Additionally, this Walkman branded handset looks like it's running the same “4-corner UI” that's seen on the X10 mini. Some of the rumored features include a 2.6” QVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, and currently runs Android 1.5 – but it's hopeful that Android 2.1
should be on board in time for a launch. There's also a level of personalization to it as the handset will boast changeable covers to meet your tastes. Sony Ericsson has clearly been busy of late as we've seen two
other Android powered devices
come to light recently, but this Walkman branded handset should hopefully see an announcement some time soon.
