Sony Ericsson Yendo: Got a yen for a touchscreen Walkman phone?

The Sony Ericsson Yendo is the first full touchscreen Walkman phone. But what's a Yendo?

This is the Yendo. What's a Yendo? It pays for stuff in Japan -- hmm, that joke didn't work. Actually, the Sony Ericsson Yendo with Walkman is the first full, touchscreen Walkman phone.

It sports a 66mm (2.6-inch) touchscreen, with Sony Ericsson's own operating system and four-corner interface that lets you customise the four corners of the screen to control the phone.

The Yendo packs a 720MHz processor, 2-megapixel camera and 3.5mm stereo jack. On the app front, you get built-in apps for Facebook, Twitter, and Google's social network Orkut, in case any of Orkut's three users need a new phone. It's very big in Brazil apparently.

Walkman features include an FM radio, Touch TrackID, which tells you the name of a song with one touch, MediaGo for syncing with your PC, and PlayNow quick access to tracks.

Yendo

The Yendo will hit shelves in the third quarter of this year, decked out in black, blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, silver, white or yellow.
