Sony Launches 1st Walkman Android phone with GLEE promo


QUEZON CITY  – Sony Ericsson today launched the first Walkman Android phone, the Sony Ericsson W8 Walkman, at Johnny Rockets’  Tomas Morato branch.

One of it’s unique features is the 4 customizable homescreen corners, which provide quick access to your preferred applications, which you can see on the photo above. The phone is also equipped with 3G and WiFi, allowing you to access the multitude of apps that can be availed of in the Android Market.

It has a 3.2 megapixel camera and comes with a 4GB microSD card (expandable). It also features a 3.5mm jack which guarantees premium audio output that Sony Walkman’s are known for.

Furthermore, if you’re an avid GLEE fan and are interested in grabbing the sleek and feature rich Sony Ericsson W8 Walkman, it will come with a featured song from the hit TV series.

In addition to the W8 promo, Sony Ericsson is also holding an online GLEE music video contest on Facebook, spanning from July 26 until September 30, 2011. All you have to do is take a video of yourself covering any song from the GLEE: The Music soundtrack albums, and submit it for entry.
