Content services from Sony provide access to the latest music and video titles
22 August 2011, London, UK - Sony Ericsson today announced Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman(TM), an Android smartphone that delivers a unique social music experience. A dedicated Walkman(TM) hardware button provides instant access to the music player and consumers can also like, share and discover content through a deep Facebook(TM) integration. The infinite button lets the consumer explore even more and the *Qriocity service from Sony provides music and video content for the consumer to enjoy.
With attractive curved design, a glossy finish and a mineral glass display, the phone has a 3.2" screen and a powerful 1Ghz processor. A front facing camera is enabled for Skype video calling, while a 5MP AF camera can capture 720p HD video recording. *Sony's xLOUD(TM) enhances audio output, while the latest Android platform for smartphones (Gingerbread 2.3) provides access to over 250,000 applications on the Android Market(TM).
Nikolaus Scheurer, Head of Product Marketing, Sony Ericsson said: "Consumers want smartphones to deliver a rich and social entertainment experience.

The Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman(TM) provides exactly this, in a powerful package with great style."
