XPERIA X3 exposed?

UK vendor eXpansys has reportedly leaked information on upcoming Sony Ericsson phone, the first from the company to run Google's Android operating system. Previously known only under the codename Rachael, the official name is alleged to be the XPERIA X3, marking a radical departure from the Windows Mobile-based X1 and X2. eXpansys specifications suggest quad-band GSM, with dual-band HSPA capable of downloads up to 10Mbps. In practicality, most HSPA networks are limited to 3.6 or 7.2Mbps.

Other wireless options are said to include Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and assisted GPS. An eight-megapixel camera is also listed, with an LED flash and some form of image stabilization. Immediately noticeble should be the phone's four-inch touchscreen, which is larger than that of most smartphones, and capable of resolutions up to WVGA level (approximately 800x480). eXpansys has not disclosed any prices or release dates.
