Walkman lives on with the W8

There’s still life in the Walkman brand after all as Sony Ericsson announces the W8, the musically gifted sibling of the Xperia X8. The new look with punchy colours and of course the Walkman logo is certainly going to put this offering on a few prospective buyers shopping list!

The W8 will be provided with Sony Ericcson’s stereo headset coupled to the 3.5mm audio jack that will allow you to connect your own headphones if you prefer. Android 2.1 will be onboard opening up the highly desired Android Marketplace with the remainder of the spec including a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera and 600Ghz processor.

There’s no news on a UK launch date yet, but as always we will keep you posted.
