Sony Xperia "ST21i" Tapioca leaks in full glory, pictures galore

Just yesterday, we saw another image of the Sony Xperia ST21i Tapioca leak out, confirming its existence, and today our Russian colleagues from Mobile-Review have gotten a hold of the early prototype and serve us a whole bunch of pictures to gaze upon along with a first look at the handset.

Now, the Xperia ST21i Tapioca is a low-end affair, a relatively new territory for Sony which is specializing on premium products. Still, it’s expected to sell for around $260 (200 euro) off contract, more than the usual crop of affordable Androids. Here’s what’s it got in store for you:

3.2-inch HVGA display, 
800 MHz single-core CPU, 
3-megapixel fixed-focus camera
Nothing impressive, and you’d definitely find it hard to distinguish text on the pixelated low-res screen. The budget Tapioca handset is still rough on the edges when it comes to software, and as a matter of fact it’s still carrying the Ericsson branding which will definitely disappear from the final design. Finally, this might really be a very early prototype, but one thing that shouldn’t change is the design - so take a close look at the pictures below if you like the Xperia ST21i.

Exactly my thoughts. If they want a budget-droid they should follow-up on the Xperia Mini and Xperia Mini Pro. Both are jampacked with features yet very affordable.

It would be great if they release something like Xperia S mini

I think this will be the Galaxy Y's competitor in terms of specs and size
