Today, Sony Ericsson has announced two new feature phones, the Walkman branded Mix and the txt pro.
The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman phone looks similar to the Xperia Mini, but has the Walkman theme all over it. The phone will sport a 3-inch touch screen with WQVGA resolution. One unique feature of the Mix is that it will sport a Zappin’ button. When a user presses the button, the phone will automatically preview the chorus of the next song.
The txt pro looks similar to the Xperia Pro and packs a four-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard along with a 3-inch WQVGA touch screen. The handset will have a Friends’ application, which will provide users with the updates of all their friends from Facebook and Twitter.
Both the phones pack a 3.2MP camera at the back, and also include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD card slot with support for up to 32GB cards. Sadly, both the phones lack support for 3G. The handsets will also have a four corner UI, similar to the ones found in the Xpera Mini range of handsets.
The handsets are expected to hit the retail stores sometime in Q3 of 2011, at an unknown price.
