Company cites issues with UI

Sony Ericsson has reportedly delayed the launch of its Yendo handset, which was originally slated to arrive in the UK and other markets by November. The company now plans to release the device in February, citing unspecified issues with the handset's software. Sony Ericsson representative Ben Padley confirmed the delay in comments to the Dutch site NieuweMobiel.

The Yendo marks Sony Ericsson's first touchscreen-based phone using the Walkman brand, which will maintain a focus on music. The device utilizes the same four-corner UI as the company's X10 mini and other Android offerings, while the entry-level hardware includes a two-megapixel camera, EDGE connectivity for data, and a 2.6-inch, 320x240 LCD.

Sony Ericsson has yet to announce plans to release the Yendo in the US, but it is expected to arrive in the UK and other markets in Europe, Asia and Latin America. [via Unwired View]
