We have come across an image that is believed to show one of the upcoming Sony Ericsson Walkman devices. We know very little, but from what we can tell it’s a chunky looking model with three dedicated playback controls on the top of the phone (pause/play, rewind and forward). This sits next to a 3.5mm headphone jack and another button (Walkman?) that has been blurred out.
There’s nothing in this photo to suggest that it is even from Sony Ericsson (the logo on the back cover has also been blurred), but it is believed to be the upcoming Walkman W23i model that will have a dual-core processor. The design doesn’t look like Sony Ericsson to us, but it could be a prototype model or it may just be some cheap device out of China. Click through for a larger image and if anything comes of this we’ll keep you posted.
