Say Hello to Sony Ericsson’s ”Rachael”

android_experia_002Since joining the Open Handset Alliance back in December, many phone fans and gadget lovers have wondered what Sony Ericsson was going to do with Android.  If this newly discovered “Rachael” handset is any indication, we can expect big things from them.

Keep in mind the phone we’re looking at is not guaranteed to have Android – It’s widely speculated, but not confirmed.  However, let’s look at what is alleged to be included in the handset.  Translated from Danish, we learn that the phone is based on the Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chip, which means it can get speeds up to 1 GHz, and HSPA-speeds up to 7.2 Mbps.

There’s also an 8MP camera with auto-focus, a 3.5 mm jack, and a mini-USB at the top of the phone. The source  for this information claims that large screen you see is no less than 4 inches and likely to be 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA).


The lack of a physical keyboard is probably going to divide people, but aside from that, we think people will fall in love with this handset.  It’s sleek, slim and everything people come to expect from today’s high-end phones.  We’ll be watching this phone closely and the second we hear whether or not this phone is Android, you’ll know.

Thank you to everyone who sent this in to us yesterday!
