Sony Ericsson Yendo Android Walkman Phone Launch Delayed; Arriving Only in Feb 2011

December 15, 2010, By Leo Xavier

You might still remember the Sony Ericsson Yendo touchscreen walkman phone that was announced way back in June, immediately after some promotional pictures of the device got leaked. Now it appears that the company may have rushed that official unveiling, because the device will only arrive in February next year.

Earlier, we had heard that the Android device, which is supposed to have the ‘four corner UI’ also seen in Sony Ericsson’s Android smartphones, was headed to T-Mobile UK in November. And you know that the launch didn’t happen.

Now, Sony Ericsson’s Ben Padley has officially given news to the Dutch mobile news site NieuweMobiel that the phone’s release has been delayed and it will arrive only in February 2011. The reason for the delay is that the company is dissatisfied with the handset’s software.

It also seems that the delay is worldwide. It is not certain whether this delay will affect the sales of the device when it eventually launches.

Just to remind you about the specs of the device, it’s a low-end phone, and comes equipped with a 2.6 inch QVGA touchscreen display, ‘Walkman player’, ‘Touch TrackID’, Bluetooth and a 3.5 mm headset jack.

It also comes with social networking integration (Facebook, Twitter, Orkut), Google search, a 2 megapixel camera, and MicroSD card support, but there is no 3G.
