Sony Ericsson Nozomi gets early pics, benchmarks
The Sony Ericsson Nozomi smartphone that's expected to be made official at CES has been benchmarked and the results shared by ITProPortal. The test confirmed some specs of the device, including its 720x1280 touchscreen and dual-core, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. A 12-megapixel camera is also confirmed, as is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of integrated storage space.
The phone will reportedly launch under the Xperia HD name and will run on Android 2.3.7, the source indicated. There is no memory card slot, and it uses a micro SIM slot, like in the latest iPhones, Droid RAZR, or Lumia 800.
Curiously, the Quadrant tests show only one core of the processor running, with the results still far outpacing those of other current phones, including the Nexus One, Motorola Droid X, and HTC Evo 4G.
