First Sony Ericsson Xperia (X5?) Android phone “Rachael”, and strange “Kiki” with transparent display

It is no secret that Sony Ericsson is working on at least one Android phone to be released later this year.

They told us about it themselves. And now the details  start trickling out.

The first Sony Ericsson Android smartphone is codenamed “Rachael“, has got a big touchscreen display, and is built on Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon platform.

Snapdragon has some pretty amazing amazing specs – up to 1 GHz CPU, HD video decoding ,12mpx camera, GPS, broadcast TV and Wi-Fi support. Though it remains to be seen which of them make it into a new SE Android handset. Probably not all of them, since we already know that SE opted for a lower resolution – 8.1 megapixel camera on this phone.

They have decided to market their new smartphone under the Xperia brand. And since Xperia X2 is already reserved for their next WinMo smartphone, could this be Sony Ericsson Xperia X5 we’ve been hearing about?

And we’ve also got some info on another Sony Ericsson phone codenamed “Kiki”, which I’ll put into an “interesting/strange” category.

Sony Ericsson “Kiki” comes with a transparent glasslike display. The images are projected on this display and, it seems, can be viewed from both sides of the handset. It also has a smooth surface keypad on the front, where the numbers should appear when the phone is on. Though I have no idea how tactile it would be and whether the symbols on it are fixed or adaptable. Could go both ways.

Anyway, we’ll be watching developments on both of these handsets and will bring you the news as they come along. Stay tuned.

    It looks very sexy but I have enought of touch screen thing, I'm preffer the physical full Qwerty key board like Sony x1 but better camera, more internal memory and expandable mricoSD. I have spot the Sony x2 on many web site it looks very good I hope it real. Sony x1 it looks good too but Sony made internal so thrifty and camera only 3MP, that why it out of copettion and it had been forgotten and that why I am getting Nokia N97 instead.

    SE Xperia X5 isn't 12 MPx phone,
    if you look closely at the picture you'll see that it says 8.1 MPx.
    Still seems great.
