Unknown Sony Ericsson device looks like Kurara. features QWERTY keyboard
While everyone and his Uncle has been waiting for the Xperia X2 to drop,  a picture of an unknown Sony Ericsson model has been circulating. The device resembles the Kurara, a Symbian S60 5th edition powered handset with an 8.1MP camera. Does this Kurara look alike share more than just the OS or are there more differences than just the physical QWERTY keyboard? We need to hear more about this unknown model. According to GSM Arena, the only competition that a QWERTY weilding Kurara would have in the Symbian space would be the Nokia N97, both full size and the bite-sized mini version. But it could be that the joint venture was looking beyond the Symbian S60 to other outstanding handsets with a physical keyboard like the Motorola Droid/Milestone.

Later this month, Sony Ericsson should be launching the Xperia X2. Delayed from an original holiday season launch, the Xperia X2 differs from both the Kurara and the unknown handset as it is powered by Windows Mobile and uses a different processor (600Mhz Cortex A8 for the Kurara vs. 528MHz Qualcomm MSM 7200 for the Xperia X2). The Xperia sequel is supposed to have an 8MP camera too, but video will be shot at only 30 fps. The display on the Kurara and the mystery device should be nHD resolution against the WVGA screen on the Xperia X2. That is the difference between 360 X 640 pixels and 480 X 800 pixels. If anyone out there has an idea about the QWERTY keyboard packing Kurara, let us know in the comment section below.
