The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has popped up in a new video on YouTube. The handset is clearly visible, but the clip isn’t massively exciting to be honest. The guy spends just over one minute flicking through the menus and that.
The Xperia Neo is also known as the MT15i (catchy) or Vivaz 2. It’ll ditch the Symbian OS used by its predecessor in favour of Android 2.3 - Gingerbread.
Russian mobile blogger Eldar Murtazin of Mobile Review recently got his hands on the phone, and posted an in-depth preview. In terms of specs, there’s a 1GHz processor, 4in screen with “Reality Display” (similar to the Arc), 512MB of RAM and an 8.1-megapixel camera.
Mobile Review reckons: “This time Sony Ericsson came up with a phone that really has much potential to become a bestseller in its segment. Both design and feature-wise [it] has all the bells and whistles expected from an Android device.”
Looking ahead to next week’s Mobile World Congress, there won’t be many surprises from Sony Ericsson. As well as the Xperia Neo, we’ve already seen the Arc and Play. A list of trademarked names did the rounds last December, and the only thing we haven’t seen yet is the Xperia Duo. Time will tell if that’s a separate device.
We’ll be in the thick of it next week, bringing you all the MWC news from Barcelona.
