A Danish mobile magazine has reveled the first details of Sony Ericsson's Google Android phone. Code-named Rachael, the phone will be announced later this year, according to information obtained by Mobil magazine.
The phone will part of SE's XPERIA series, which so far includes the Windows Mobile-based X1 model.
And as Sony Ericsson joined the Open Handset Alliance in December last year, it was shaping out quite clearly that the Swedish company would join the Android-running smartphone army. Mobil said that the Android-loving SE Rachael is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform (QSD8250), which would give the phone processor speeds of up to 1GHz and 7.2Mbit per second HSPA downlink speeds.
The leaked pictures also show the SE's upcoming Android phone featuring an 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash. At the top of the phone a 3.5mm headphone jack and a miniUSB port are also present. No specific details on the phone's display size or resolution were released, but the Danish magazine said it had a pressure-sensitive touchscreen.
It's highly likely that SE's Rachael will run on the upcoming 2.0 version of Google Android operating system, which is also expected to be released towards the end of this year. As for Adobe Flash, it is yet unclear whether this phone will feature this capability.
