Rumours are mounting that the Sony Ericsson Xpeira X3 Android mobile phone will go on sale next month.
News that Sony Ericsson was planning a handset employing the Android operating system first surfaced earlier this year.
The mobile phone industry consensus was the phone would not land in shops until January 2010, after the Windows Mobile-powered Xperia X2 arrives on Vodafone next month.
However, the recent leak of new images of the X3, coupled with a teasing Tweet from Ericsson labs, is fuelling speculation that the mobile phone could be due as early as November this year.
Confirmed features of the handset, which will be Sony Ericsson’s debut on the Android platform, include a four-inch touchscreen, eight megapixel camera and HSDPA support for fast downloading and web browsing.
The X3 will also be home to a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which will enable users to access multiple functions simultaneously with minimum time lag.
