Heading to Mobile World Congress in two weeks time? Looking forward to Sony Ericsson’s new lineup? Then don’t read on!
Last week, Engadget leaked the Xperia Play, one of two new devices the Japanese-Finnish joint venture was planning to unveil on February 13th. Now over on TechRadar you can preview the other - the Sony Ericsson Neo.
Formerly known as Hallon, TechRadar’s Gareth Beavis earlier in the week found out the "real" name of the Vivaz-looking handset. The Neo, which features an eight megapixel camera, runs on Android 2.3 with TimeScape overlay.
According to TechRadar:
"The phone itself looks pretty good - it sits well in the hand, has a semi-anodised finish and the key arrangement at the front is easy to access with a single digit.
On the top we're treated to the usual gubbins - a proximity and light sensor, the ear piece and a whopping great front facing camera.
We weren't able to get the specs of this sensor, but in quick tests it seems to be better quality than the average VGA hardware bolted onto most phones these days.
The other phone furniture is nicely arranged too - the lock/power key is on the right-hand side and is within easy reach of your thumb, despite the large 4-inch screen."
