Sony Ericsson slaps Walkman logo on X8, renames it W8

22 Apr

Take one Xperia X8, add a dash of color, paint a “W” on it and, voilà, you have the first Walkman phone running Android — the W8 electronic gadgets. We’re not seeing it on the US Sony Ericsson site yet, but a quick visit to the company’s German page reveals the decidedly low-end specs:

a 3-inch, 320 x 480 touchscreen, a 600MHz processor, 168MB of RAM and Android 2.1. The W8 may not recapture the luster the Walkman brand enjoyed in its TPS-L2 heyday, but at least it’ll update your Twitter status. Gallery below.

Sony Ericsson Spain confirms Xperia Play for €649 on April 1st

15 Mar

Apparently in an effort to reduce confusion and settle the situation once and for all, Sony Ericsson’s Spanish outpost has taken to the wires today to clarify the pricing and availability situation of the electronic gadgets of Xperia Play there: €649 off contract and unlocked (which works out to roughly $907) on April 1st. That more or less lines up with what we’ve been hearing in other European locales, though in Spain, Vodafone will have a 15-day exclusive on the white model — other carriers will only have access to black at first, and none of the carriers have come clean with on-contract pricing details just yet. Clearly, $900 is an enormously tough sell, but a weak dollar never helps these situations — we’ll need to wait for word on the US retail picture before we’ve got the whole story.
