Sony Ericsson Text Pro and Mix Walkman

It seems the social networking site Facebook is picking up as a new launchpad. Cellphone giant Sony Ericsson took it to Facebook to unveil two new phones -- the Text Pro and Mix Walkman.

Geared towards music lovers and social networking fans, both the handsets run Sony Ericsson operating system and reportedly have a user interface similar to the Xperia range.

Sporting a 3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 400 pixels, Mix Walkman comes with Zappin feature which will let users preview songs before listening.

Featuring a 3.15 megapixel camera, the phone supports GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and Stereo FM radio with RDS. The phone's memory can be expanded up to 32GB.

Sony Ericsson Text Pro features a slide-out QWERTY keypad and comes preloaded with Friends application that lets users scan through the Facebook and Twitter updates.

Like Mix Walkman, Text Pro too comes with 3.2 megapixel camera and sports a 3-inch touchscreen display.

Both the phones are expected to be available from the third quarter of this year.
