Sony Ericsson Yendo

Sony Ericsson Yendo has today announces Google Android powered Sony Ericsson Yendo with Walkman, the first full touch Walkman phone which combines music, social networking and communication in one colourful phone.Benefitting from the innovative four area touch UI debuted on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro, the new Sony Ericsson Yendo with Walkman genuinely delivers music to consumers' hands.

The Sony Ericsson Yendo is really a lightweight touchscreen handset. Made entirely of plastic, with a soft-touch flat coating on the back, the Yendo feels fine in the hand, due to its stable develop high quality. Needless to say, some metal elements would have made wonders for it, but it's not to say that it's unsatisfying.Interaction with the phone is going to be accomplished through the 2.6" capacitive TFT display that sits in the central front region. It's resolution is 240x320 pixels, even though the colors are 262k. Image high quality is excellent, but not terrific, because of the somewhat low resolution, nonetheless we discovered the screen's viewing angles to be really excellent.Below the screen there's only a back key, even though on the left side you will discover a microUSB port. On the upper correct is the volume rocker, even though on the top are the power/lock key and 3.5mm headset jack.On the back side, there's a 2MP camera with no flash. Removing the back panel gives you access to the battery and microSD card slot. To be able to reach the SIM slot, you'll want to remove the battery.

Interface and Features
The Sony Ericsson Yendo isn't a smartphone. It really is powered by a feature phone platform, which is customized with the UI we saw on the X10 mini and X8. The concept is basically the same, needless to say with a couple of exceptions caused by the really reality that we're dealing with a non-smart platform here. For instance, the widgets you can location on the homescreen are fairly fundamental - you can add notes for example, which you can then scroll through effortlessly. The music player can also be visualized as a widget.You can find four shortcuts in the four corners of the screen that lead you to the Walkman player, messaging, dialer and phonebook.The major menu is divided into three pages and grants you access to all of your apps. Needless to say, the basics are covered here given the presence of a calendar, notes, calculator, voice recorder, and email. As a entire, the interface is fairly straightforward and uncomplicated to use, though we cannot guarantee how smooth it will work in the final product, since our prototype was really laggy.Out prototype unit's 2-megapixel shooter's interface was really fundamental. We only had two keys - a shutter and a still/video switch. This is only a preview, so we'd not draw conclusions about the camera high quality just yet.Don't expect anything groundbreaking from the Walkman music player. Its interface is in line with the rest of the UI, and it allows for most fundamental choices (at least in our unit) for filtering and playback. The phone is also equipped with TrackID and a voice recorder.The Sony Ericsson Yendo does feature Bluetooth with A2DP profile support so that you can pair your favorite handsfree. Which is in case you might have a favorite handsfree; in the event you don't, you can just pair any handsfree you might have.

The Sony Ericsson Yendo is really cheap in terms of connectivity. GPS, 3G and Wi-Fi are missing and network data speed is limited to GPRS and EDGE.We guess all those features are sacrificed for a nice price tag, but we're yet to see how things shape for the Yendo.The only excellent news about the Sony Ericsson Yendo is the 3.5mm audio jack.Local connectivity comes down to USB v2.0 and Bluetooth. There's also a memory card slot, which can generally give you the fastest data transfer rates. USB charging via the USB port is possible (actually, this is the only method to recharge the Yendo battery).
