Sony Ericsson outs social music smartphone

Walkman + Facebook + Android

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Sony Ericsson is to mix music and social networking in a new smartphone.

The Live with Walkman runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and sports what SE called "deep Facebook integration", which basically means building Facecrack links into all the key apps.

The handset has a Walkman button to trigger the music player app, and a second key, stamped with an Infinity symbol, to call up Sony's Qriocity music shop.

Travellers on public transport will curse the Live' xLoud feature, which "enhances audio output of the inbuilt speakers at high levels" once chav teens start playing with it.
