Crave, the XPERIA ray is 9.4mm thick and weighs 100g. Unlike other recent Sony Ericsson handsets, it has a front-facing camera for video calls, though it does use the familiar Timescape UI. The display is scratch-resistent and packs in 854 x 480 resolution, and the phone itself will be available in black, gold, white and pink. As for the XPERIA active, it too has a scratch-resistent display - though running at a mere 480 x 320 - but is also water-resistent for dunks of up to 1m for 30 minutes, and dustproof. It has GPS and a barometer, along with Bluetooth and a bundled wrist-strap. No word on pricing, but the Android pair are apparently set to drop sometime in Q3 2011.
has announced that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the XPERIA X10 is on track for a roll-out from the beginning of August 2011. The company has also released a video demo of the upgrade in action - which you can see below - as well as confirming just what features have made it in - or been left out - of the new ROM. After user requests, the original camera UI from the Eclair build has been left in the Gingebread update. The Facebook Inside XPERIA tweaks - which allow for sharing from the media player, browser and other apps - are present, as is most of the functionality from the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc.
"The UI with the desktop layout and pinch-to-overview gesture will be similar and Gingerbread features like Wi-Fi & USB tethering, App storage on SD-card etc are included. Also the customizable horizontal app tray and the media experience widgets from the 2011 XperiaTM Products are in, including an integrated equalizer in the music player. Of course also apps that require Android versions 2.2 or 2.3 will now be possible to download from Android Market, e.g. Adobe flash."However, Sony Ericsson will not be including DLNA support out of the box, due to the inherent delays in getting type approvals, though third-party apps are available in the Android Market. Generic trade versions of the X10 will get the update first, followed by some operator models. However, the company warns that - as said before - some operator-supplied models will not be eligible for the Gingerbread update. [youtube zfEOU8juGec]

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.
conceptual design in Android devices, and we've found that the fountain scarcely runs try. The following concept is known as the Sony Ericsson Zento, an Android smartphone by Frank Tobias. If this phone were to ever take fruition, it would be one bad mother. Oddly enough, this badness starts with Android 3.0 Honeycomb which, as you know is optimized for tablets, not smartphones. On the other hand, this device has a 4.4 in touchscreen, so perhaps the size qualifies.
