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.
Other specs include HDMI and miniUSB ports and full HD video recording from it’s rear facing 8.1 megapixel camera. The forward facing video camera looks to get a spec boost as well, a 3.2 megapixel camera for video chatting. Here’s hoping front cameras continue to get more powerful as mobile video chat increases in popularity and handsets continue to get more powerful to accommodate it. And speaking of power, it’ll be interesting to see if it comes to reality and if it’ll get an even further boost from upcoming Quad-core chips by both Qualcomm and NVidia.
