Sony Ericsson smartbook reportedly coming soon

Not long after we reported about Nokia’s plans to make a smartbook (in collaboration with Compal), we’re now hearing that Sony Ericsson wants to launch a smartbook, too.

According to Netbooknews, “a reliable Taiwanese source” has confirmed the fact that Sony Ericsson is working on a smartbook that’s coming “soon.”

Details are scarce at the moment, so there’s no word yet if said smartbook is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon platform or not.

Theoretically, a smartbook is something in between a smartphone and a netbook. So I don’t know what exactly we should expect from Sony Ericsson’s smartbook. Perhaps a maximized Xperia? Or something similar to a Sony VAIO P-series sub-netbook (seen below)?

Regardless of what it will look like, the SE smartbook has lots of chances to be a really nice device. Now let’s hope that Sony Ericsson will indeed launch it.

    With Sony Ericsson having gained experience in developing their upcoming Android smartphone, it doesn't seem like much of a stretch to make an Android smartbook, which is essentially is a smartphone with a larger screen & keyboard.

    I suspect the mobile operators would love these things since, like smartphones, they could generate revenue from cell phone calls, SMS/MMS, etc., in addition to basic data contracts. Plus, the mobile operators that are already building applications for Android, can deploy those apps on these devices. as well.
