Sony Ericsson W8 is an attempt to revive the Walkman brand and bring it to the world of modern smartphones with the help of Android. W8 promises to deliver outstanding audio performance while being an affordable entry-level Android device at the same time.
Sony Ericsson Xperia W8 basically looks like a differently colored Xperia X8 with a Walkman logo slapped on it. The 3-inch scratch-resistant capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320×480 pixels and the practically identical thick, lumpy body with a slight curve at the back.
Xperia W8 Walkman is built entirely out of plastic, even though its back cover slightly resembles anodized aluminum. The slight curves on the back of the handset make it comfortable to hold.
Sony Ericsson has only focused on the music aspects with W8 with the dash of Android functionalities. Even the camera features of the device are mediocre with 3.15 mega pixel and 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution.
