Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 - First Live shot!

After several leaked “official” Sony Ericsson XPERIA X3 images and even a video demonstrating how its UI should look like, now we have something even more tempting – the first live shot of the device.

The first Android-powered device by Sony Ericsson was first spotted 3 months ago. A few days later we saw its user interface caught on video and now we have its first pic shot in the wild.

We admit, the image might be on the small side and of rather low quality but it's the long awaited sign that the official announce of Sony Ericsson XPERIA X3 is getting closer.

All the fuss around the XPERIA X3 (which you might also know as Rachael) is not only because of its hot looks but also because of what's hiding underneath.

The device will run Android OS and comes with the superfast Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon 1 GHz CPU. Reportedly, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X3 will feature HSDPA and Wi-Fi support as well as an integrated GPS receiver.

Also aboard are expected to be a large 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display of 852 x 480 pixels resolution and an 8 megapixel autofocus sharpshooter. We look forward to seeing more of the XPERIA X3 live, so if you've got one lying around, snap a pic for us and send it over, please!

Nokia 8800 Erdos

Nokia 8800 series of luxury phones have always focused on high quality materials and superior build quality, while holding back on the spec sheet. With the Nokia 8800 Erdos this reputation is about to change.

First off, "Erdos" is just a code name so expect that to change at some point. And second - this won't be an Arte. The Arte Phones have had largely the same design, differing in materials only. The 8800 Erdos changes not only the design but also the way the phones are built.

The Nokia Ardos body will be constructed out of a single piece of "bullet silver". This apparently is marketing talk for stainless steel, so you probably can't kill a werewolf with it, but carving out the body out of a single piece of metal is all the rage with high-end laptops and the ridiculously expensive luxury phones.

The screen of the Erdos however is covered with regular scratch-proof glass, rather than sapphire, which is the usual weapon of choice in such cases. The glass covering the screen though turns silver when the display is off, giving the impression that the phone is a single slab of stainless steel. The screen itself is an OLED unit with QVGA resolution and a diagonal of 2.4 inches.

The high-end design of the Nokia 8800 Erdos includes a rather unique feature too - it's a slider like the rest of its siblings, but the keypad raises to the level of the display when you slide it out. This should make the keys of the top row much more accessible.

Sounds good already, but we haven't even gotten to the good part yet - the Nokia 8800 Erdos is the first of its breed to be a full-on smartphone. It'll run the Symbian OS S60 and feature Wi-Fi and A-GPS. The internal memory is 8GB, though there's no card slot.

The camera is the best in the luxury class with its 5 megapixels and Carl Zeiss lens with autofocus. There's a dual-LED flash too.

Rounding off the specs is the reasonably compact size of the phone. The 8800 Erdos measures 116.9 x 50,3 x 15.0 mm, though its weight is kept on the hush-hush. There is also a dedicated noise reduction microphone on the back.

The Nokia 8800 Erdos will be available in October with tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900) and dual-band 3G/HSPA. The price is the other thing missing from the rumored specs, though this could easily top the price point of the Gold Arte.

XPERIA Pureness

XPERIA Pureness

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pureness is a one-off devil - it's got a vanilla feature set but is the first phone with a see-through display. Some new info about it just surfaced suggesting it should go on sale as soon as this November - at least in the UK, that is.

Positioned as an exclusive luxury handset, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pureness won't be distributed via the usual retailers and carriers, but will only be displayed in high-end stores and boutiques with a price to match - running around 600 euro.

Well, the exclusive status isn't such a surprise since Sony Ericsson describe their new device as a "a simple design phone which brings together beautiful craftsmanship and the concept of "talk, text, time - a holiday from technology". The Pureness obviously targets the high-end luxury class and the hardware specs sheet will hardly inspire gadgeteers - unless of course you have a fetish for transparent objects with an extra spicy price tag.

Previously known as KiKi, the Xperia Pureness will be promoted "as a work of art rather than technology" and as revealed now Sony Ericsson will position the phone as an "iconic niche product, not mass market".

Similar to another luxury phone - the Motorola Aura - the Xperia Pureness will be sold in design-museum shops and high-end stores such as Selfridges. You will find it there some time this November just in time for the holidays.

Samsung B5702 Dual SIM phone

Today Samsung announced the upcoming launch of Samsung B5702 - their latest dual-standby mobile phone, which allows users to use two SIM cards in one mobile phone simultaneously.

Coming with enhanced dual SIM interface and new visual indicators, the Samsung B5702 is also one of the only two dual SIM phones ever made that have quad-band GSM/GPRS support.

Let's remind you that Samsung B5702 saw daylight for the first time at the MWC 2009 in Barcelona. It was briefly introduced and somehow it didn't attract much attention amidst the crowd of high-end devices.

Samsung B5702 Duos offers a large 2.4" 256K TFT QVGA display and provides two external LED lights that indicate which SIM card is being defaulted for calls and messages. Another specific dual SIM feature is dedicated side key that's used for choosing which SIM card to use for communication without rebooting the phone.

The dual quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support allows users to use data traffic on either one of the SIM cards, depending on the users preference. The only other quad-band dual SIM phone is the WinMo-based Acer DX900, which was already released on the market a few days ago.

Samsung B5702 also boasts various multimedia functions including an MP3 and MPEG4 players, an FM radio with RDS and a 3 megapixel autofocus camera. Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP and a document viewer complete the rest of the specifications.

Using two SIM cards in one phone is increasingly an option many are willing to consider as it allows users to combine two calling plans from different carriers for the benefit benefit of choosing the most optimal call pricing (or simply for combining your business and personal calls on one device). No wonder then, one of the top cell phone makers are reaffirming their commitment to address this kind of demand.

Samsung were first among the majors to announce a dual SIM handset in October 2007 - the Samsung D880 Duos, which we've already reviewed.

Samsung B5702 will be launched in several markets, starting with Russia (which explains the lack of 3G support) in May 2009 at the price of about 420 US dollars (roughly 310 EUR).
