Sony Ericsson's Walkman series lives on with Spiro and Zylo
Spiro is a standard feature phone that lacks any impressive characteristics. It has a 2.2-inch TFT screen with QVGA resolution, 2-megapixel camera, 3.5-mm jack and FM radio. Unfortunately, there is no 3G and Wi-Fi support, so the browsing experience will be quite poor.
Sony Ericsson Zylo has more advanced features. It sports 2.6-inch scratch-resistant screen with QVGA resolution. The 3.2-megapixel camera offers geographical tagging possibility, despite the fact that the phone lacks GPS. The interesting thing about this device is that it provides support for FLAC format, which offers much higher sound quality than MP3. You should be able to tell the difference, since Zylo is coming along with a pair of the best Sony Ericsson headphones - the motion-controlled MH907. Besides, the phone will have 3D games installed and will have the ability to imitate the noise of a busy street to help you avoid unpleasant conversations.
Both new Walkman models offer Twitter and Facebook applications. They are expected to launch on particular markets in the third quarter of 2010 and will be offered in multiple colors. We know for sure there is a version of the Spiro for the North American market, but whether the Zylo will appear on that market is still unknown. And oh... no word about pricing yet.
