Like Motorola, Sony Ericsson seems to be putting a lot of hope on the Google Android platform. With its three earlier Android devices under the Xperia X10 series revealed, word has it that there'll be another on the way, codenamed Shakira. This new Android device is designed as an in=between for the Xperia X10 and X10 mini. Meaning, it'll be great for those who aren't able to handle the large nature of the X10, or find it a challenge to use the smaller X10 mini.
GSM Arena - It's been a while since we've seen interesting Sony Ericsson leaks and we thought they don't have any upcoming phones worth leaking. But we were wrong. Meet Shakira, a phone reusing XPERIA X10 design all over again.
If we assume the original XPERIA X10 is about size XL, and the XPERIA X10 mini is about size XS, then we can safely call the Sony Ericsson phone codenamed Shakira size M. Sony Ericsson obviously are keen on reusing the nice design of the XPERIA X10 on devices in various formats so everyone can find their favorite.
The Shakira is rumored for a fall release, which should set it within the end of Q3 or early Q4. Check out the full story here.
