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.

The Xperia X2 features similar specs of the X10 except the main difference is the X2 is powered by Windows Mobile instead of Android. The X2 is loaded with Windows Mobile 6.5 which is an upgrade from the X1. Windows Mobile 7 isn’t on the cards for the handset either.
