The Sony Ericsson Yendo has only recently been revealed but, Mobique have already had a hands on with the phone. The Sony Ericsson Yendo is the company’s first phone from the refreshed Walkman range. Upon initial inspection, it appears that the Yendo is run on Android, like the Xperia X10 Mini which the handset resembles. With further inspection however, it’s revealed that the interface is only similar with regards to the four corner touch UI, which allows you to access the Walkman player, keypad, contacts and can be changed to access other features of the phone.

The Sony Ericsson Yendo, while being the first full touch screen Walkman phone from the company, it suffers when it comes to the camera, with only a 2 megapixel camera. As well as being the first Walkman phone with a full touchscreen, it also features the largest selection of colors. You will be able to pick the handset up in colors such as, blue, green, pink, orange, purple, silver, red, yellow, as well as the usual black or white. You can view the hands on video of the Sony Ericsson Yendo below.

For anyone in the UK, or anywhere really, apart from the US, the question on most people’s lips is “How much is the PS Move here?”. Well, we can now provide that answer for anyone in the UK. While stores like Game are allowing pre-orders for just a £10 deposit, they haven’t stated the final price. However you can now pre-order from Amazon, who have the prices listed.

The PlayStation Move controller will be available for £39.99 while the subcontroller will be £29.99. The prices are quite disappointing to be honest, when compared with the US prices but, it’s not really that unexpected.

The Starter pack will be available for £49.99, the RRP however is £59.99.
