Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman is the Android smartphone for music lovers
Those who simply cannot live without their tunes will now meet a smartphone that might be the perfect device to complement their lifestyle. Introducing the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman – the latest Android-powered device to proudly bear the company's Walkman brand and to proclaim itself as the smartphone that a music lover should own.

One thing that makes the Sony Ericsson Live special is that it turns the simple act of listening to music into a social experience. Thanks to the smartphone's deep Facebook integration, users can easily make their buddies aware of what is currently spinning on their Walkman player. Another neat thing that the Sony Ericsson Live can do is to provide access to the Qriocity music and video streaming services for instant entertainment on the go. Pressing the dedicated hardware Walkman key instantly brings forth the smartphone's Walkman player, which besides playing back your favorite tunes can also search the Internet for more content from your favorite artists.

Besides being a versatile media player, let's not forget that the Sony Ericsson Live is a decent smartphone as well. Under its hood ticks a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with flash and auto-focus is located on its back, and a front-facing shooter can come in handy when you are in the mood for a video chat. Its 3.2-inch HVGA display has a scratch-resistant coating and its 1200mAh battery can provide up to 17 hours and 30 minutes of audio playback. The smartphone comes with a 2-gig microSD card pre-installed, and the built-in stereo speakers with xLOUD technology are yet another welcome addition.

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will be available in the fourth quarter of 2011 in select markets. Unfortunately, we have no word yet regarding its pricing or whether it will be sold in the US.

I have to admit it's a great idea from SE. I don't think I've ever heard of a phone with Android having such music-oriented hardware. Makes it a sort of mini ghetto-blaster! If it's successful it could create a niche for Android-based, music-oriented handsets.

I'm considering this to replace my wife's iPod and phone later this year.

This is a great idea. I personally got rid of my iPod when I got my EVO because I'd rather not carry around 2 devices. If they made a superphone version of this, I'd actually consider getting one.
