Sony Ericsson Zylo and Spiro Walkman Phones


In this post I'm going to look at two walkman phones recently announced by Sony Ericsson - the Zylo and Spiro. Sony Ericsson are continuing their trend with walkman phones but taking them one step further by combining social networking with music. The Zylo and Spiro have been designed to allow users to easily communicate with their friends via Facebook or use Twitter while listening to music.

Both of these phones support TrackID - a service that allows users to find the artist and name of the currently playing track wherever they are. One interesting feature of the Sony Ericsson Zylo is that users can play a tune in the background at the same time as talking on the handset. This could perhaps be used to pretend you are in a different location such as walking down the street.

Now lets have a look at Zylo vs Spiro for features:

Sony Ericsson Spiro features
Camera - 2.0 Megapixel with 2x digital zoom and video recording
Music - Walkman, TrackID, Bluetooth stereo (A2DP)
Web - Obigo Q7 web browser
Social networking - Facebook, Twitter
Connectivity - Bluetooth, Micro USB, USB mass storage, 3.5mm audio jack
Screen - 262,144 colour TFT, 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA)

Sony Ericsson Zylo features
Camera - 3.2 Megapixel with 2x digital zoom, video recording, geo tagging, photo feeds
Music - Walkman, TrackID, Bluetooth stereo (A2DP), Clear bass, Clear stero, Shake control
Web - Access NetFront web browser
Social networking - Facebook, Twitter
Connectivity - Bluetooth, Modem, Synchronisation, USB mass storage,
Screen - 262,144 colour TFT, 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA), Scratch-resistant

Both phones have very similar features but the Zylo supports a more powerful camera and advanced music features.

The Sony Ericsson Zylo and Spiro Walkman Phones are expected to be available in selected markets in mid to late 2010.

I'm really looking forward to these phones. I've been a fan of SE Walkman phones for a long time and will certainly upgrade when the Zylo and Spiro are available.
