The full touch Walkman phone
Sony Ericsson W150i Yendo was announced back in June and now it's
almost ready to start selling. For 169 euro. Meanwhile, the device paid
the FCC a short visit and as it turns out, it will be called Yizo in
The Yendo which first showed up
a few months back is getting ready to hit the stores. We spotted it on
the Phone House Spain website and right under its image and name there
was its price. This just about solves one of the final remaining
mysteries about the Yendo. The device is priced at 169 euro, SIM-free.
Along with the photos of the Yendo exterior and internals the FCC website also holds the Sony Ericsson W150a manual. And according to it, the American version of the W150i Yendo will be called Sony Ericsson W150a Yizo.
Just like the Yendo, the Yizo will come with a 2.6 capacitive
touchscreen of QVGA resolution and Walkman logos all over its body. On
the back there will be a 2-megapixel fixed-focus snapper and on the top
- a 3.5mm audio jack.
As for the W150 user interface, it will be quite reminiscent of the one found in the Android-running Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro. However, unlike those two, the music-centric Yizo will lack smartphone capabilities.
There is no information on the Sony Ericsson Yizo launch date or price tag.
