Sony Ericsson looks like they are preparing a new Android device that could be glasses-less 3D on a 4.7 inch screen. The resolution is said to b 1280×720 and be powered by Sony’s Bravia technology borrowed from their television division. If this is true, not only does it have a chance at being the most brilliant display available but also the biggest “phone” display. If you recall the original Dell Streak was referred to as a tablet.

This rumored Sony device is yet another OEM wanting to take on the LG Thrill/Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D. After originally suggesting at MWC that 3D on phones wouldn’t adapt, or was a fad, Samsung has recently back pedaled as we are pretty confident they have the Galaxy 3D in production.
Sony Ericsson is trying to make an impact in the United States with their Android powered smartphones. In much of 2010 they were overlooked because the top 3 US OEM’s dominated the market. In fact we only saw the X10 and X8 released in the US via AT&T. Their mini line skipped over the US altogether.
In 2011, we’ve seen the Xperia Play and we are expecting the Xperia ARC sometime in the very near future.
Speaking of the Sony Xperia minis, they are reportedly getting official Gingerbread updates from Sony. They were released with Android 1.6. An update to Gingerbread would mean the Sony Xperia Mini’s are the devices to receive the most official Android OS updates via their OEM.
