Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman was yet another handset that Softpedia had the chance to play with at IFA 2011 in Berlin, where the leading phone maker brought it, along with the already presented Xperia devices spotted at the event.
Just as its name suggests, the Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman handset comes with appealing music capabilities, paired with the features and functionality that Google's Android operating system has to offer.
The mobile phone
runs under the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS (at least so did the unit at IFA) and sports unique features like the Zappin key for searching for favorite songs with ease, or fast access to Facebook and Twitter.
The mobile phone sports a 3-inch touchscreen display that can deliver a 400 x 240 pixels resolution, and was packed with a 3.2-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with video recording capabilities.
The Android-based Mix Walkman also comes with enhanced connectivity capabilities including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, support for GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 frequencies, and microUSB port.
Sony Ericsson also packed the new mobile phone with a 3.5 mm audio jack, as well as with USB mass storage capabilities, and with 100MB user-free memory that can be expanded through the addition of up to 32GB of external storage via microSD memory cards.
The specifications list of this mobile phone
also includes FM radio with RDS, multimedia capabilities, Internet browser, and a battery that can deliver up to 9 hours and 40 minutes of talk time, or up to 465 hours of standby time.
The handset also comes loaded with the PlayNow service, along with TrackID, Walkman, Media player, Google search, Facebook application, Twitter application, and more.
The handset measures 95.8 × 52.8 × 14.3 mm and weighs in at 88 grams. At IFA, Sony Ericsson brought two color flavors of this mobile phone, black and white.
