As the name of the phone suggests it does come with a walkman built in, but this is a major improvement on previous walkman phones. Sony have included their Xloud system and Qriocity content. As well as being a great walkman phone, it has a great link with Facebook, this allows you to skip from anywhere on the phone straight to Facebook and update it whilst on the move.

A nice little feature added by Sony Ericsson is Wisepilot, there own satellite navigation system. With all these great apps and features obviously they will require plenty of power which the phone delivers but it also means that it will drain a battery, but this device has a great 1200 mAh battery which gives users 6 hours talk-time, or 17.5 hours of music listening time and 6.5 hours for watching videos.


So to conclude, this new Sony Walkman device will provide hours and hours of music, has expandable memory to increase the already big 2GB of space for the storage of a lot more music. As well as its brilliant music capabilities as you would expect from a walkman phone there is plenty of apps available for download from the Android market, this could be one of the best new android phones to come on the market.
