The news of Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 Android 2.1 update timeline has been hitting Sony Ericsson's image hard in the Android community. Thankfully, we can now look at the leak of two new Android handsets never before seen. What appears to be the newest addition to the X10 family is rumored to be called the Shakira, while the black QWERTY slider to the right is said to be even larger than the Dell Streak.
IT168 seems to be the source for both leaks, and that is not much of a surprise considering they focus on Sony Ericsson products.
SEMC Blog notes that "the clock widget looks pretty large compared to the one on the X10, which could mean that the resolution will be HVGA – 320 x 480 pixels."
The black QWERTY slider has not yet received a name, but Engadget writes that details of the device include Android 2.1, a 5.5 inch display, and should launch this fall.
AndroidandMe makes an observation about the sheer size of this device asking:
If I need a bag to lug around another device then I might as well get a netbook with full size keyboard and display rather than attempt to work on this cramp device. Do we have any takers out there? How would you use this device if it somehow launched in the United States?
