I was searching for some news on any new version of Sony Ericsson Xperia X-series when I chanced upon the "Xperia Rachael".
The Xperia Rachael may be the next phone I want to own.
Being a professional video maker, when it comes to getting my next PDA phone, good camera and good video display are 2 critical factors I look for.
First, the camera must be at least 8 Megapixel or better (12 mpx or more). The HTCs have a lot of catching up in camera specs. The iPhone is just not for me at 3 Megapixel.
Second, the phone display must be high resolution and widescreen (16:9). Why? To watch and enjoy videos on the move.
I have been using sony video equipment in my work, so I am sure Sony knows what is best to make a camera.
Here are some information from articles I found and I quote what excite me:
"The fully-touch operated phone comes complete with an 8-megapixel autofocus camera, a 3.5 mm jack and a standard miniUSB jack... Coming with the sweet 16:9 aspect ratio this is the highest resolution screen we have seen so far on a mobile phone."
"...the Sony Ericsson Rachael is its 4" touchscreen that will to come with the exciting WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels)."
"...equipped with Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon platform, supports up to 1GHz processor and 3D graphics engine..."
"...the original resolution of this video is 852×480 pixels in 16:9 aspect ratio, which gives us a guess that it’s also the resolution of the SE Xperia Rachael display."
"...up to 1 GHz CPU, HD video decoding, 12mpx camera,GPS, broadcast TV and Wi-Fi support. Though it remains to be seen which of them make it into a new SE Android handset. Probably not all of them, since we already know that SE opted for a lower resolution – 8.1 megapixel camera on this phone."
This is the first SonyEricsson (SE) Android handset, as in operating on Google Android. "Rachael" is the codename for this "leaked" news. I am also a Google product user, which makes this phone the perfect one for me.
If it also comes with a built-in video editing software, that not only trims video, but can add title and add audio, I will queue up early in the morning and be the first to buy it when it's launched.
Looking forward to exciting news!
