Sony Ericsson X12 Anzu might be announced at CES, after all
Just when we thought that Sony Ericsson will keep all its cool phone stuff for the MWC next month, eagle-eyed nomads spotted an advertising banner in Las Vegas that shows the rumored Sony Ericsson X12, codenamed Anzu. The tagline is "Believe in more entertainment at the touch of a button".

Silly catchphrase aside, we are really excited about this one - it seems amazingly thin, should sport a 4"+ screen and HDMI-out, as well as Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It was also rumored to be available in Q1 this year, so it might as well be announced at CES, instead of MWC.

We sincerely hope the Anzu will wash the shame away from the Xperia line, as we still can't fathom how it shipped with Android 1.6, and stayed this way for so long. Still, nothing says it will be a member of the Xperia line, but the "X" in one of the rumored names. We should know pretty soon.

We are at the CES show, so we will keep our ears open at the press conference for the eventual announcement. Excited about this one?

Please I want dual core, 4,3 inch 1280x720 display and Gingerbread/Honeycomb. That's all. Is That Too Much that I'm Asking For?

Dual-core, I get. but a 4.3 display is just too much for one-handed use. 1280x720 would be nice but really not necessary. You should also include 1 2000 mAh battery power in your wishlist. LOL.

I hate these trolls who talks about too small battery. Why you are wrong? New technology has lower power consumption because of newer process technology and new microarchitecture.

i will be buying this phone no doubt. i have the x10. granted without a newer version of android it is very disappointing. i can see how this phone will be a great phone if they actually improve on the x10. by the way i think all phones should be 4 inches or bigger. this way it will be harder to text and drive i.e. one handed use. just my opinion.

4" screen seems to be the standard for high end phone. but i doubt it will discourage people from texting while driving.

Yea people should really buy that new app (reported on PA) that DISABLES your phone, because it makes sense to spend money on something that causes your phone to dysfunction.
