Photo, detailed specs show for Sony Ericsson X3

Sony Ericsson's first known Android phone, the XPERIA X3, has finally been spotted and been given more detail. The phone is now thought to have a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon inside and would tie the Acer Liquid for the title of fastest Android phone. It should also have a slightly sharper than expected 4-inch, 852x480 touchscreen, GSMArena says.

It's already assumed the X3 will have an 8-megapixel camera, up to 10Mbps 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi. The prototype on display has been seen using Android 1.6 but is expected to carry Android 2.0 by the time it ships and take advantage of the better Facebook and gesture support.

The X3 could be ready as soon as November, though most rumors have pointed to January and phone designers usually reserve major launches for Mobile World Congress the following month.

    Awesome hardware that they're

    putting into the Xperia III. They did the same with Xperia I and II and still couldn't sell a decent amount of the devices. They must be spending a fortune and it's likely going for naught.

    Apple's hardware must really be inexpensive compared to some of these newer smartphones. I would think that these people must be pricing themselves right out of the smartphone business.

    Thing is...

    Apple's iPod hardware, software, and crappy AT&T service locking have been around for a long time now and some of us are starting to get sick of it.

    It's nice to try something new every now and then. Of course, you are right. No carrier is going to subsidize this... except maybe AT&T. *cry*

    Slick, with this I might consider pushing Sony Smart phones for my customers. I've had several look at X1s, and I flat out tell them don't bother, besides my dealer didn't buy any cause we didn't want to be left trying to discount them to get our money back.

    Xperia X10 - For better, for worst?

    We agree, that Xperia has a bitter history on older models. Hopefully, this X10 release will turned out to be a happy-ending.
