Sony Ericsson "Kumquat" will launch as the Sony Xperia U
The phone will apparently ship after Sony officially buries the “Ericsson” part of their branding; this is a move that was expected after Sony bought out Ericsson’s half of the joint venture. As a result the S-E Kumquat will come to market as the Sony Xperia U. The name still conjures up images of a college that specializes in mobile technology, but at least it’s consistent with the naming convention of the rest of the Xperia line.
The phone is expected to have a 3.5” 480x854 pixel screen, a “mid-range” 1GHz dual-core CPU, and a 5MP rear camera. The design aesthetic seems to match the larger Xperia S. While the Xperia U won’t pack quite as much under the hood as the Xperia S, the size may appeal more to people who want an iPhone-sized Android device.
What do you guys think? Did anyone out there prefer the name Kumquat to Xperia U?
