Sony ericsson launches a colorful “Shakira” , says its a walkman series phone W8

Remember the cool walkman series phones you used to own sometime in the past ? Flashy interfaces, loud speakers and snazzy colors were trademark features of the walkman phones from Sony Ericsson. I can’t keep count of how many of my friends raved about these phones. Well, Sony Ericsson has now hinted the repeat of that legacy by launching the W8, simply a colored version of the cheap Android smartphone from SE, the Xperia X8 codenamed “Shakira”.

It runs Android 2.1 and is walkman series branded, look at the nostalgic logo below the hardware keys.This might, as well be on of the few walkman phones, or maybe the lone Walkman phone with a 3.5 mm jack ? But it’s for the best i would say, who likes the proprietary port anyway ? Other specs are same as the X8, Read more about the phone here .

Quick specs round up : a 3-inch, 320 x 480 touchscreen, a 600MHz processor, 168MB of RAM and Android 2.1
