Sony Ericsson Yendo pushed back to February

First finger-friendly Walkman was unveiled way back in June.

Chances are you’ve forgotten the Sony Ericsson Yendo. The touchscreen Walkman phone, the first in Sony’s vintage music range to feature a proddable panel, was unveiled in June. However, its release has now been pushed back until February next year.

The reason? Well, one Sony Ericsson exec says it’s not happy with the current version of the software. The phone uses a similar ‘four corner’ UI to the mobile maker’s Android phones, a smart system which works well.

While this is an admittedly basic phone, we’re talking 2.6-inch screen, a lack of 3G, a simply 2MP camera and Walkman software, this does not show Sony Ericsson in the best light. The Japanese-Swedish tech giant is already suffering thanks to its failure to roll out up-to-the-minute updates to its Android lineup.
