Sony Ericsson readying Walkman-themed Android phone?

updated 07:55 am EDT, Thu June 3, 2010

SE Walkman Android phone may come this month

Sony Ericsson may be on the verge of launching its first Android-powered Walkman phone if a rumor is correct. The phone would be similar in style to the Xperia X10 mini but would have a "powerful" Walkman component, presumably through an app. SEMC notes its OS would still be limited to 1.6, but hardware personalization would get some attention with removable backplates.

The X10 mini has an unusual, squat 2.6-inch touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi; it's not as fast as the full Xperia X10 but is much less expensive with the reduced feature set. The Walkman version might drop the camera flash.

If in development, the Walkman phone could be unveiled as soon as this month. When it would ship hasn't been given away.
