The Mobile Review site recently got a hold of some leaked images of possible the Sony Ericsson Xperia X12. According to the source the device only runs Android 2.1 for now, but will have the Android 2.2 for launch. It has a 4.3" 854x480 resolution display, an 800MHz processor, a 12MPix camera, and more. As the images are leaks, there's still no solid info and a date of release.
Just to let you know: according to some sources, HTC might soon stop using Qualcomm’s sluggish 3G chips, and will instead go for Ericsson’s Mobile Platform (EMP), especially since the latter produces one of the smallest tri-band 3.5G chipsets.
You probably think that Sony's joint venture with Ericsson doesn't really have a major impact on the company's overall earnings. Well, maybe, but not in this case. The manufacturer's low income reflected in Sony's latest financial report with a 97% drop in cash payouts in comparison with the last year's performance - from ¥17.1 billion all the way down to a ¥0.6 billion.Of course, this doesn't mean that Sony Ericsson's days are numbered, just makes you wonder how long Sony plans to tolerate those crappy balance sheets.

Don't expect anything special, though. According to some sources will be released on the 24th and will sport a QVGA display, 2Mpix camera, HSDPA support, Memory Stick M2-expandable storage, and the NetFront browser.
