It hasn’t even been a week since it was rumored to be in the works and Sony Ericsson has gone ahead and announced it – the Sony Ericsson W8. (AKA the NEW Walkman phone.) What makes this one so new? It runs Android, of course.

We’re sure they took some – nay, all of its design cues from some of their already-existent smallish Android devices such as the Xperia X10 Mini and the Xperia X8. The difference here is a nice selection of finishes for the battery door and – you guessed it – a Walkman logo.

The inside of the device isn’t too awe-inspiring – it has a 600MHz processor, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and 168MB of RAM.The screen is HVGA and clocks in at 3.2 inches. And it still only runs Android 2.1. Still, we’re sure Sony Ericsson’s embedded their superior hardware and software audio technology so as to make music sound like – well – music. Check it out over at their site (translate from Indonesian) now. [via GSM Arena]
