The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman is a budget phone that will be targeted at pre-paid users. On paper, the Mix Walkman a very unremarkable product: there is no 3G connectivity, limited internal memory and no real standout features.
Sony Ericsson claims the Mix Walkman's "Zappin" feature gives a new twist to music playback. The phone comes with a Zappin key that will preview the chorus of the next track when pressed, and the music player also includes a karaoke function that will lower the vocal track from any song.
The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman has a 3in touchscreen with a resolution of 240x400, and the interface looks similar to the XPERIA X10 Mini. It features four shortcuts on each corner of the home screen for quick access and is described by Sony Ericsson as a "corner user interface".
In addition to its Walkman music function, the Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, and features a 3.2-megapixel camera that doubles as a video recorder. The look and feel of the phone can also be personalised with different exchangeable colour bands.
The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman will be available in selected markets from Q3, but an Australian release date has not been announced.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
