    I’ve mentioned about upcoming 8MP phone before at http://cellphonesail.net/2008/10/07/new-se-phone-in-2009/
    and maybe it is xperia.

    According to my info next Xperia will have 5mp. However, that touchscreen UIQX labeled smartphone is very interesting. Also Walkman 4 is coming very soon. In addition, I am glad that W900 form factor will come back. And yes, there will be no P series anymore. Xperia will represent SE smartphone line UIQ,WinMob,Android. Maybe there will be 3 or 4 Xperia’s released 2009. I know for sure about 2 of them. Maybe they will be not labeled X2 or X3. WinMob 7 device is coming in Q4 so it might be even labeled as X5.

    Mate, you have some errors in the text. For example, Rika has GPS and available in 3 colours.

    P.S. Can you please contact with me by email? maximysjeans@gmail.com

    Hikaru project is in status quo. Although they have tasted on TI, and Qualcomm processors but it is not sure if the new UIQ mobile will be Hicaru. Next UIQ is in testing phase and it is showing very good results. Even the interface is very responsive and eye candy they are struggling to put something innovative. Fingerprint lock is not big deal and time will show how efficient will be if they agree to implement it. The Xperia device that is testing the new WinMob 7 is running on Qualcomm QSD8250 processor. UIQX device is running on TI OMAP3430. Android testing device has the same processor as G1, well for now.

    Pop Lover & ya,

    Rika don’t have stereo speaker. I never try ShakeControl on Rika but I assume that Rika will have this feature as well since it have accelerometer. For LED light no, I don’t think so
