Sony Ericsson has unveiled its first full touchscreen Walkman phone, the Yendo.

The handset uses the same four-corner touch UI as the Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro, and runs a proprietary Sony Ericsson OS.

The device has a 2.6-inch touchscreen, and includes the company's stable of music features, including TrackID, MediaGo and PlayNow.

It has a two-megapixel camera, and will be able to access Google search from its standby screen. While it is not the first Walkman phone to have a touchscreen, previous models had physical keypads too.
