    Whether you call it Nozomi or Xperia Arc HD, the Sony Ericsson LT26i is now stranger. We've seen the phone surface in real life shots in the past and we have a general idea about what to expect from the phone specs-wise. The image above appears to be a press render of the device. It is yet unknown whether it is an official one or fan-made but it looks pretty good (and really in sync with what we've seen so far). Though believed to run Ice Cream Sandwich, you can still see the three Android buttons at the bottom of the phone, but then again Ice Cream Sandwich plays nice with buttons too. ...

    The Nozomi from Sony Ericsson, also referred to as the LT26i, manages to generate a lot of buzz lately; we've recently seen some renders of the phone and now it's time for some more real-life sightings as the upcoming device smiles for the camera. First we have a picture from Hong Kong (above) leaked on a forum, with no other details made public, but confirming the dual-core processor and 720p display. Then comes the second image (below) which is reportedly one of the Nozomi; the phone is rumored to feature a 4.3-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 resolution, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal ...

    A little earlier today, we shared with you the latest clue Sony Ericsson's made available about what hardware it will be revealing at next week's CES. Is the subway setting a reference to Metro – another Windows Phone hint? Could the "190" be referencing something? While we continue to look forward to your theories in the comments over in that post, what we've got here is some Sony Ericsson news that requires very little guesswork, as a source has managed to get his hands on the company's Nozomi handset a little early for some benchmarking and whole lot of new pics. We've heard that ...

    Sony Ericsson is rumored to be releasing a high-end Android, called Nozomi, in March of next year that will bring a dual 1.5GHz dual core CPU (probably of the Snapdragon variety) with a 4.3" 1280x720 720p display (that's 342ppi), 1GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, and, oddly, a micro-SIM tray and no expandable microSD storage. It'll also pack NFC and a 1750mAh battery. Sony Ericsson's latest high end, the Xperia Arc S, packs a faster single-core CPU. The Nozomi would be their first shipping dual-core offering.

    As much as we'd wish that all the recent leaks of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Nozomi, aka Ark HD were more than just leaks, but we'll have to settle for now. More images have surfaced recently, along with more spec information, though most of it is stuff you already knew about. The Ark HD plans to provide a 720p resolution 4.3" LCD, a 12 megapixel camera with 1080p video capabilities, 1GB of RAM with a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage due to the lack of microSD expansion. An interesting note here is that it'll include a new Snapdragon chipset featuring a 1.5GBz dual-core ...

    A couple of days ago we heard about a certain Sony (Ericsson) Xperia Arc HD and we couldn't help but wonder whether the phone is the same as the Nozomi rumored earlier. There are a couple of pictures of a certain LT26i showing off the front and the back of the device as well as some benchmarks and the About screen. The device packs a 720p resolution screen with 320 dpi which is rumored to have 4.3 inches in diagonal. There are also talks about a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It should also pack a 12-megapixel camera with Sony's mobile Exmor-R backlit ...

    Sony was one of the early manufacturers to commit to bringing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to their recent smartphones. They even released some early alpha versions of the OS for a few of their phones back in December 2011. Since then things have been fairly quite, leading some to wonder if progress was being made -- or if work on the ROMs had been abandoned. It seems the latter may be the answer to that question. A recognized XDA Developer has reportedly gotten his hands on a leaked Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the Xperia Play and has released it for those brave enough to give it a try. ...

    Despite getting the Xperia neo V as its refresh last year in Berlin, the Sony Ericsson Xperia neo is rumroed to get a successor and we sure hope it will be soon, if not at CES then definitely at MWC. The phone's model number is MT27i and is also referred to as "Pepper". You can see it in the leaked image above accompanied by rumored specs that include a 1GHz dual-core processor (probably made by ST-Ericsson, the NovaThor U8500 according to reports), 3.7-inch FWVGA display, five-megapixel camera with 720p video recording capability.

    For the third time this week, Sony Ericsson has posted another teaser image of a smartphone it plans to reveal at next week's CES. The first picture to go up seemed to be full of subtle clues, which when taken together started to give off a very Windows Phone vibe. Next, we got a very close-up look at an upcoming Sony Ericsson Android, focusing on its camera capabilities. The latest shot gives us a nice, clear look at its featured handset (or the back of it, at least), which may be some hardware we're not yet familiar with. Of the handful of Sony Ericsson smartphones we're expecting in the ...

    Yesterday, we looked an image Sony Ericsson just released to drum-up interest in the company's CES offerings next week. We're still not sure exactly what product the pic was supposed to promote, but some clever readers pointed out some hints that could be seen as referring to a Windows Phone device. Today, Sony Ericsson continues with the games, and has another teaser for us. This time, we go from barely seeing the phone at all to some extreme close-ups. We're not exactly sure what the port is, featured in the upper-right, but other than that, we're clearly in camera territory here. That ...

    What's in that girl's hand? Sony Ericsson posted the above image to its Facebook page this morning, alongside the note that there's some "interesting news" coming out next week. With the annual Consumer Electronics Show now looming over the horizon, it's no surprise that plenty of smartphone manufacturers will be showcasing their new wares. Just what could Sony Ericsson be planning on showing-off? There's a good bit of unreleased SE smartphone hardware we've seen or heard about in one form or another. For a while now, there's been talk of the Sony Ericsson Xperia Nozomi, along with quite a ...

    Six months ago, we heard about some quality issues that were affecting Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc. A number of users were noticing that the phone's plastic shell was cracking in one particular spot, a thin band of plastic bordering the top edged of the light sensor on the phone's face. The presence of the crack didn't appear to put the rest of the phone's structural integrity at risk, but it's certainly not what you expect to happen to a brand-new expensive piece of electronics. The issue never built up the kind of momentum necessary to warrant a recall, but we did hear of Sony Ericsson ...

    Making LCD panels can be a tricky business, consisting of precision fabrication with a low tolerance for errors. Back in 2004, Sony and Samsung thought that the best way to produce the panels needed for their electronics would be to partner-up. Together, they formed S-LCD, a corporation that produces displays used not only by Sony and Samsung, but also the likes of HTC. Now that partnership is dissolving, with Samsung taking things over. The split in ownership between the two companies had been nearly equal, with Samsung holding a slight majority of shares. In order to gain complete ...

    According to the PTCRB site, a brand new firmware is listed as of December 20 with software version number 4.0.2.A.0.62. No, this is not the Ice Cream Sandwich update as the manufacturer was kind enough to let the world know we should expect it between March and May of next year. If you have a Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, arc S, neo, neo V and PLAY, you might want to keep an eye out for the new firmware. According to the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog, you shouldn't expect any new features but a couple of bugfixes. The firmware itself is "mainly targeted to MENA (Middle East North Africa)". ...

    Ever since Sony Ericsson officially stated that all of its 2011 Xperia smartphones will be updated to the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich, there were speculations regarding the actual roll-out date. If earlier the company told us the steps necessary to bring the new platform to the phones, now we have official roll-out dates. End of March - beginning of May 2012 is the timeframe to watch for if you have a phone which is in the 2011 Xperia line-up. The first ones to get ICS in March/April will be the Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray. Then, in April/May, the refresh will be pushed ...
