Sony Ericsson XPERIA Leak

Sony Ericsson is readying consumer versions of its XPERIA phone line more explicitly targeted at the iPhone, if a Sony Ericsson promo video proves accurate. The short clip shows users running primarly touchscreen-driven phones that are likely media centric; icons floating around them recall the Xross Media Bar (XMB) that Sony uses for its PlayStation systems and BRAVIA TVs to navigate games, music, and video. Panels swirling around the users recall the panel-based interface that Sony Ericsson is using as the front end for the XPERIA X1's navigation.

Few other details are available, though at least one of the phones in the demonstration includes a front camera for video chats, while the second includes a hardware keypad in addition to its touch interface.

The company has not confirmed the existence of any of the products in the video, which lacks both a title and any clues to a release date, but has previously said the X1 was just the start of an entirely new product line rather than a singular product. The X1 is primarily targeted at high-end users and is believed to have a price to match.
