Sony Ericsson Yendo renamed Yizo?

Chris Ziegler

We're not sure if this is a regional variation or a last-minute global decision, but a device known as the "Yizo" from Sony Ericsson has recently garnered the FCC's blessing -- and it looks suspiciously like the Yendo that was announced back in June. Of course, it's not unusual for Sony Ericsson to create both Walkman- and non-Walkman-branded versions of essentially the same device, but in this case, they both bear the trademark Walkman logo in their lower right corner and seem to be identical in every notable way, making this something of a non-Android remix of the X10 mini with a music slant. Interestingly, SE's got product pages up for both devices, and they're definitely showing the same phone, at least from the front -- though the Yizo's page seems to be a little screwed up, suggesting they might still be in the process of making the transition over from the Yendo name. More on this one as it develops.
