Sony Ericsson Xperia X12 Anzu: List of Specs – Android 2.1 Frustration

We have some good and bad news to bring you now, all to do with the Sony Ericsson Anzu handset that we told you about recently. A lengthy list of early specs for the device has leaked out, but it looks like this handset will only be shipping with Android 2.1.

We’re not sure what is going down at Sony Ericsson HQ, but last time we checked, the rest of the world was preparing for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

As reported from Engadget, the handset does include some decent specs such as a 4.2-inch capacitive display with multitouch, 12 megapixel camera, 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor, 720p video recording and ‘Noise Supression’.

The good news however, is that the handset, also known as the Xperia X12, will be upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo shortly after release, and then to Gingerbread after that – still though, it’s not really good enough is it when the likes of the Nexus S will be shipped with Gingerbread.

No details on a release yet. Let us know your thoughts on this handset launching with Android 2.1.

    800 mhz? come on, the xperia x10 had a 1 ghz processor anad this has 800 mhz!

    I would get the unlocked version of the Anzu rather than wait for the nexus S. Sony's delinquency with software updates is not that big of a deal. The mid-range processor and other hardware specs are, however.

    come on that's really not fair some of us using the x10 not have not got multi-touch or the 2.1 we still stuck on 1.6 and you tell us that the x12 is going to have multi-touch and 2.1 then 2.2 shortly after release? Seriously that really hurts because some of us have been waiting since february for the update but still nothing. that bad customer care by sony ericsson. the worst I have seen in the history of phones.
