Sony Ericsson announces W8 Walkman phone with Android on board

Sony Ericsson has quietly launched the Walkman W8. it’s first Android device to sport the firm’s “Walkman” moniker.  This means that the new gadget should sport more music-centric services than others , but the spec sheet doesn’t indicate anything extraordinary in the tunes department. It’s loaded with the Walkman music player software, although that’s not a huge deal.  Other phones have more robust music players onboard than the Sony legacy software.  The phone also sports a 3-inch touchscreen display with a low 480 x 320 resolution and it also has a 3.2-megapixel camera, an FM radio, and 128MB of RAM. The Walkman W8 will make its debut in Asia in three colors, blue, red, and orange. It will also sport the aging Android 2.1 OS, not exactly a ball buster in the “gotta-have-it” category.  Will it make it to the U.S.  Maybe… a couple of months.  No official word, though.
