Leaked photos still carry Sony Ericsson logo.

A couple of photos have been leaked from Phone Arena that show Sony’s upcoming Windows 7.5 based smartphone. Codenamed ‘Julie’ the new smartphone still carries the Sony Ericsson logo, which leads us to believe that the leaked photos are of an older prototype.

The as yet unannounced smartphone will have slide out keyboard from-factor, similar to their existing Xperia pro. However, the keyboard layout seems to be better spaced out and seems more comfortable than the relatively tiny keys of the Xperia pro.

We’ll have more coverage on this potential Windows based Sony phone if it is indeed unveiled at the Mobile World Conference beginning next week. It’ll be interesting to see if Sony would bring their PlayStation brand or the PSN Marketplace to this Windows based smartphone.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
