Under Pressure: Nokia Cuts Q2 And Full-Year 2010 Outlook

Sony Ericsson YendoYou know, not all of us want a smart phone. There are people out there who only use a mobile to make calls, send texts, and listen to a few tunes.

They’re not the ones reading this blog, though. Maybe you know one of them and want to pass this information on?

Anyway, Sony Ericsson today announced (alongside their next Android handset, the X8) their first ever full-touch, Walkman-branded, probably-not-very-expensive, feature-phone: the Yendo.

The GSM-only handset will come in a plethora of colours (as you can see, in the gallery below), and will give you access to such modern mobile marvels as text messaging, email, Facebook, Twitter, and Orkut.

It has a 2.6″ display, a 2.0MP camera, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Sony’s new(ish) “four corner” UI (like on the Xperia line, but without the Android).

Strangely, I could find no mention of how much storage it has, or even if it has a MicroSD card slot. Which (I think) is pretty important information for a Walkman.

It will launch in Q3 of this year. No price has yet been announced, but it won’t be much.
