There’s no Press Release here like you’d expect from a regular phone launch but this is no regular announcement as the Sony Ericsson W8 Android powered Walkman phone has simply appeared on the manufacturer’s website.

The smartphone bears a great deal of resemblance with the Xperia X8 — read X8 with Walkman branding and headphones — and is running Google Android 2.1 Eclair (pity, but the main purpose here is a Walkman-phone and not a smartphone) sporting a HVGA 320 x 480 pixel screen of three-inches in diagonal, up to 128MB phone memory, up to 16 GB external memory via microSD card slot, 3.2-megapixel camera at the back, FM Radio with RDS, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Like the Xperia X10, the W8 Walkman Phone has the four shortcuts on the screen corners which users can personalize. If you live in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, you’ll be able to grab one starting from Q2. There are three flavors available: Azur, Metallic Red and the iconic Walkman Orange.
