The online retailer eXpansys has posted on its website a complete overview of Sony Ericsson’s first Xperia model running Google Android OS, despite the fact that this model hasn’t been officially announced yet.
This device will likely be called the Xperia X3, as it’s official part number is SEMXP3. Apparently its manufacturer is willing to extend this product line to a variety of operating systems: the X1 and the rumored X2 run Windows Mobile.
According to eXpansys, this Android-based smartphone will have a tablet shape dominated by a 4-inch, 800-by-400-pixel touchscreen.
The focus of this device will be its 8 MPx camera with flash and support for VGA (640 x 480 pixels) video recording at 30 fps. This will offer face and smile detection, as well as image stabilization.
The X3 will allegedly be a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) GSM phone with dual-band (900/2100) 3G: 10 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA. Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi g will also be included.
In addition, it will have a GPS receiver and a microSDHC memory card slot.
This retailer’s listing doesn’t reveal everything about the X3, but earlier rumors filled in many of the holes.
Whether this smartphone — code-named Rachael — will use the standard Android software suite or if Sony Ericsson has replaced it with its own is not yet clear. This model will definitely have a music player, navigation software, and email apps, including support for Microsoft Exchange.
eXpansys does not yet list a release date or a price for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3.
