An online retailer is listing a version of Sony Ericsson's Windows Mobile smartphone the Xperia, with one major difference. The new Xperia appears to run the Google Android operating system.

Sony Ericsson has previously said it intends to build several Google Android 2.0 smartphones. Now e-tailer Expansys is listing a Sony Ericsoon Experia, with the part number 'SEMXP3_BLK_UK', that runs Google Android. This suggests we're looking at the Xperia X3.

The quad-band 850/900/1800/1900MHz, 3G smartphone has an 8Mp camera and a 4in 800x400-pixel screen.

The Expansys listing gives no price, and no release date, but allows punters to pre-order. There are also pictures of the upcoming 'Xperia X3'.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
