Sony Ericsson is having a real tough time with their security. Details about upcoming handsets have been leaked recently and this time it’s the Sony Ericsson “Julie”.
The Julie is reportedly a Windows Phone 7 device. It is rumored to look somewhat like the Xperia X10. The phone will sport a QWERTY keypad and is likely to support multi touch gestures. It will mostly be powered by a 1GHz processor and rumor is that it will feature a 4″ multi touch capable display too, something the Xperia X10 range is sadly lacking.
What look to be ‘Official’ photos have emerged of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, also known as Shakira, over on the se-nse blog.
Although exact specifications of the newest incarnation of Sony Ericsson smartphones haven’t been released yet, it appears that the Xperia X8 is, as expected, a cross between the full sized Xperia X10 and the smaller X10 Mini, sitting in the middle of those sized phones. It has been noted that there doesnt seem to be any flash for the camera on the X8 which would be disappointing but again, until specs are released by Sony Ericsson we can’t confirm that.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini has now been released in the UK on most networks. Both Vodafone and O2 have the X10 Mini in stock, although it’s unclear which color they are stocking and sending. Orange on the other hand, also have the handset in stock but, they have an exclusive deal with Sony Ericsson, like the did for the Xperia X10. Orange were able to gain exclusive rights to the white model of the X10, while the other networks just had the black model and this time, Orange are the only UK sellers of the Lime Green Xperia X10 Mini.
According to latest reports, Sony is planning an Xperia X10 “medium”. Codenamed “Shakira”, the handset will be bigger than the X10 Mini and smaller than the X10. The specifications are still unknown.
The screen is expected to measure between 3.2 to 3.5 inches. There is no information on the hardware yet. If reports are to be believed, the phone will run on Android 2.1, which is in the early stages of development.
Images of the Android 2.1 running on an X10 have also been leaked. Images have been posted on a Chinese site. Looks like Sony is having a tough time with its security!
With the aim of strengthening its hold in the fast growing smart phone market in South Korea, Sony Ericsson has announced that it will sell the Xperia X 10 starting this month. The Android powered handset will be the second smart phone in the market from Sony.
“Korea is one of the most important markets for Sony Ericsson…and this market has a great potential for Sony Ericsson’s future growth” as the number of smart phone users has nearly doubled from the end of last year to 2 million by May this year, Hirokazu Ishizuka, head of the company’s Asia-Pacific region, said Thursday.
The Creatouch application is now available for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. The application, which allows users to create and personalize their home screen is now available to download in the PlayNow market.
Creatouch allows you to create cool wallpaper with special effects and symbols. It allows the user to draw by hand, insert text, symbols and numbers, and even share the wallpapers socially. You can view the video of the application in action after the jump.
