Sony Ericsson to announce Neo during MWC
02 February 2011 - 14:26:53
The Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona will be full of new arrivals and now it has emerged that the Sony Ericsson Neo will be among them.
Up until now, the Neo has been going by the codename Hallon and frankly it is definitely the right move for Sony Ericsson to ditch this unappealing moniker, in favour of something a little cooler.
The Sony Ericsson Neo will be the natural successor to last year's Vivaz and according to TechRadar, it will sport an eight megapixel camera with a flash. It will also have Android 2.3, which means it will be a viable alternative to the Xperia Arc if you want a slightly cheaper Android phone from Sony Ericsson.
It is not known what size the display will be, but a native resolution of 854x480 is thought to be featured on the Neo. This display will be powered by the Bravia engine, which should result in a very impressive video performance, given its reputation in the consumer TV market.
Sony Ericsson is levelling an all-out assault on the mobile industry in early 2011 and it looks like MWC will be its time to shine.
The Hallon has emerged as the Neo and the Anzu was recently revealed as the Arc. Now all that remains is for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, or the PSP Phone as it is otherwise known, to emerge from hiding and take centre stage.
While the Neo and Arc are fairly safe bets for Sony Ericsson, it is arguably taking quite a gamble with the launch of the gaming-focused Xperia Play. With Sony recently announcing a standalone sequel to the PSP called the NGP and with the first dual-core mobiles arriving on the market, the 1GHz single core setup of the Xperia Play is looking less than ideal.
