Sony Ericsson’s Android-Based Xperia X3 May Launch Early Next Month

Sony Ericsson has put a “teaser” page on its website promising a big announcement on November 3. This could be the day it’s going to formally unveil the Xperia X3, this company’s first smartphone running Google’s Android OS.

The teaser is, of course, very vague:

We’re looking forward to November 3rd.
We think you should be too.

Still, the biggest announcement Sony Ericsson could be planning for that day is the unveiling of the X3. This very high-end model has appeared in numerous rumors going back to this summer, so the launch could finally be getting close.

An Overview of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3
The name “X3” hasn’t been 100% confirmed. Some reports say it may have been changed to “X10″ or the ” Infinity”. In any case, the code-name is definitely “Rachael”.

According to unconfirmed reports, this smartphone will have a tablet shape dominated by a 4-inch, 800-by-400-pixel touchscreen.

It will reportedly run the Android OS on a 1 GHz processor Snapdragon processor. Rather than use Google’s standard user interface, Sony Ericsson has created a proprietary one for this device that emphasizes social networking.

One of the highlights of the X3 will apparently be its 8 MPx camera with flash and support for VGA (640 x 480 pixels) video recording at 30 fps. This will offer face and smile detection, as well as image stabilization.

It will allegedly be a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) GSM phone with dual-band (900/2100) 3G: 10 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA. Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi g will also be included.

In addition, it will have a GPS receiver and a microSDHC memory card slot.

Pricing for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 is not yet known.
