So it’s more than just a rumor, eh. According to Engadget, “the device you see is headed into the market soon, likely boasting Android 3.0 (aka Gingerbread), along with a custom Sony Marketplace which will allow you to purchase and download games designed for the new platform. The device snapped up top (and in our gallery below) is sporting a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 (a chip similar to the one found in the G2, but 200MHz faster), 512MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and the screen is in the range of 3.7 to 4.1 inches.”
Interesting. It’s not going to be available anytime soon, since Sony is still working the bugs out of it. However, this looks like the perfect phone for teenage boys, more interested in gaming on the bus than doing anything else.
