A photo of a Sony Ericsson (SE) tablet has surfaced online, despite the company’s official denials that it’s planning to enter the nascent slate market.
According to Dutch tech site NieuweMobiel, which snapped said device at the Sony Ericsson stand during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), the slate will run Android, although it’s not clear if that’ll be the tablet optimised Honeycomb iteration of Google’s operating system.
Other specs include a display estimated to measure between six and seven inches, a front-facing three megapixel snapper for video calling and support for 4G networks, suggesting that SE might be reserving its debut tablet for overseas markets.
Other than that, we’ve little else to go on. However, close scrutiny of the snap reveals that it features a substantial bezel that we’ve gotta say reminds us of the Sega Game Gear and three buttons – namely, ‘Home’, ‘Menu’ and ‘Back’.
News of developments comes after Sony Ericsson – the only major mobile device maker yet to unveil a tablet – had previously pooh-poohed talk that it would soon be joining the slate set imminently.
