Sony Ericsson Yendo™ with Walkman™: Seri Walkman Pertama Dengan Full Touchscreen

Posted: 16 June 2010 in A300, Candybar, News, Sony Ericsson, Touchscreen, Walkman

Hari ini Sony Ericsson secara resmi mengumumkan handphone musik terbaru yang diberi nama Yendo™ with Walkman™. Handphone dengan codename TeaCake dan internal name W150i ini seperti diperkirakan sebelumnya merupakan handphone dengan sistem operasi proprietary Sony Ericsson pertama yang memiliki kemampuan layar sentuh secara utuh, semua fungsi dioperasikan melalui sentuhan pada layar, tanpa menggunakan keypad atau keyboard fisik. Jika dibandingkan dengan vendor lain seperti Samsung atau LG, Sony Ericsson memang termasuk ketinggalan dalam segmen ini, namun lebih baik terlambat daripada tidak sama sekali. Tidak hanya sekedar layar sentuh seutuhnya, Yendo™ pun dipercantik dengan user interface baru yang diberi nama four corner touch UI yang merupakan adaptasi dari user interface yang sebelumnya diterapkan pada duo Android Mini (Xperia™ X10 Mini dan Xperia™ X10 Mini Pro). Dan sesuai dengan serinya yang mengutamakan kekuatan musik, Yendo™ pun dibekali dengan touch Walkman Player yang sudah terbukti memberikan pengalaman bermusik yang sangat bagus.

    Kembali ke masa lalu rupanya,Seri Walkman yg cameranya tanpa “Auto-Focus” dan “Flash”.
    Sayang banget tuh,resolusinya cuma 2MP lagi padahal Elm aja 5MP.

    Bentuknya kurang ramping y…tp co2k buat orang yg suka musik karena d walkman. tapi sayang kameranya cm 2 MP.

  3. JJ says:

    @ilham: iya sih agak tebal ya body-nya. Kameranya cuma 2MP karena memang pasarnya untuk kelas pemula kayanya. Tunggu aja versi berikutnya yang mungkin lebih tinggi spek-nya.
