Sony-Ericsson Xperia Ultimate concept emerges

There's a new concept phone called the Sony-Ericsson Xperia Ultima, and judging by the size, it'll be a typical Android upgrade to a tried and true Sony design. Along with what looks like a 4.3" Reality Display multi-touch screen powered by Sony's proprietary Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, specs presumably include a 1GHz processor inside, with 16GB of onboard internal memory. Additionally, the Ultima will sport a 12.1 megapixel camera capable of HD capture thanks to Sony's Exmor R sensor. The Ultima will likely run Android 2.4 (Gingerbread) with Sony's well-developed Timescape social interface.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play to get extra attention at GDC 2011

Back at Mobile World Congress 2011 Sony Ericsson officially announced the Xperia Play. Dubbed the "Playstation Phone" it has been leaked time and time again and still looks to be a killer device. Especially for those Android Gamers. Come next week at Game Developers Conference 2011 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the Xperia PLAY will most likely get some extra attention during two special GDC sessions featuring Kim Ahlstrom. He leads Sony Ericsson’s Platform Software Development team.

Xeta concept phone boosts specs for Honeycomb

It's called the Xeta, and it's a simple, yet elegant concept phone created by designer Frank Tobias for Sony Ericsson. On it's face, it may look like just another Android phone. But looks are deceiving. Check out what may be under the hood. Designed to run the very tablet centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the Xeta is to be powered by a 2Ghz dual core CPU running the Sony Mobile Bravia Engine. Which is plenty of power to support a massive 4.2 inch multitouch display that nearly covers the entire phone. Layout wise, the Xeta looks to sport three buttons including a center square that suspiciously looks like a "cut and paste" of an Apple mobile device power button.

White Xperia Play a European Exclusive

European gamers looking to pick up the Sony-Ericcson Xperia Play can up the style points a bit as UK carrier O2 is set to get a White version of the Playstation phone exclusively. Pricing will be the same as the standard XPeria Play for between £499.99-539.99. In the US, users will have to settle for the stock Xperia Play, as it has been announced at $400 without contract or $199 with a two year agreement through Verizon. As we reported earlier today, it has been rumored that AT&T may pick it up soon after.

Sony Xperia Play not exclusive to Verizon

Sony CTO Jan Uddenfelt has confirmed that the new Sony Xperia Play phone will not be exclusive to Verizon and that AT&T could launch the phone later this year. Working closely with Google to develop the gaming aspects of the new PlayStation cellphone may have given Google's partner Verizon the inside track to launch the phone. However, Sony believes that the U.S. is a leading smartphone market in the and wants to keep it's options open and only expand it's reach. In addition, armed with a new focus on the importance of keeping their phones up to date, Sony-Ericcson is expanding it's research and development to keep it's phones on the cutting edge.

Xperia neo Revealed, Correct Case Revealed as Well

SO there were a couple of "reveals" this morning in the Xperia pro and the Xperia PLAY, but did you know there was a third device in this suite? Probably! But did you know the correct way to write the name? No way! The correct way to spell the third of the Sony Ericsson reveals this morning (or yesterday, however you look at it,) is "Xperia neo." This is both the correct spelling and the correct capitalization, take note. Also take double note of "Xperia pro" and "Xperia PLAY" - both are official capitalizations straight from the top. This Xperia neo is a phone which Sony Ericsson has concentrated on form factor for the most it seems, with an ergonomic shape made for the human hand.

Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro 2 Gets Quadrant Benchmark?

And it seems to be pretty neato. Over at Ausdroid they've got this image that they say is a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro 2 being benchmarked with Quadrant, and it appears to be doing pretty well. It's definitely no LG Optimus 2X or overclocked Nexus S, but is comparable to, say, a CyanogenMod 7 Nexus S with no overclocking. What's all that mean? It means it's not going to beat the superest of the super phones coming out soon, but it'll certainly be a top-tier device.
