Sony Ericsson has big plans for this year. It announced no less than four new smartphones, all running the latest version of Google’s Android, namely 2.3 Gingerbread
Previously appeared as the Sony Ericsson Hallon, the Neo is the keyboardless version of the Xperia Pro. It has the same 3.7 inch FWVGA Reality display, Sony Bravia Engine, HDMI, 8MP autofocus camera with Sony’s Exmor R sensor (for capturing images and HD video in low-light conditions), and the same 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor.
I’ve played a bit with the Neo during Sony Ericsson’s MWC 2011 press conference, and – just like the Xperia Play and Xperia Pro – it left me with a good impression: it’s fast, responsive, and well-build.
A video preview of the Neo can be watched below:
Sony Ericsson said the Xperia Neo would be out before the end of March. The exact price of the Neo hasn’t been announced, but we do know that the smartphone will be a bit cheaper than the Xperia Pro (which is understandable, since the latter adds a QWERTY keyboard).
