Sony Ericsson to launch an Android Cyber-shot smartphone?

Sony Ericsson of the past used to heavily promote Walkman and Cyber-shot features in their phones. This was a natural combination for the company and did well for them for years. Then several new players came on board with touchscreens, intuitive operating systems, integrated music players, email and similar camera quality. Sony Ericsson shifted gears a couple years ago with the release of the Xperia X1 and then decided to generally focus on Android over the last couple years. They released the Xperia X10, X10 mini and the recent launch of the Xperia arc and Play (true first gaming device that integrates the PlayStation)… but now it seems that Sony Ericsson is going to resurrect the Cyber-shot. Images have surfaced online that shows a touchscreen device with the “Cyber-shot” branding on the bottom. There are no pics of the back that reveals the camera or flash but the Home, Back and Menu buttons indicate a strong hint of Android.

Almost a year ago in Bert Nordberg, Sony Ericsson’s President & CEO, stated they have an “ambition to become the global number one handset provider on the Android platform”. So if these pictures comes to life it’ll be a great addition to the Sony Ericsson Android lineup. Rumour for now and one more pic below.
