Speaking at a launch event in Taiwan, Peter Ang, Sony Ericsson's Asia-Pacific vice president of marketing, told reporters that its first Google smartphone will arrive in the "near future" and that it will run Android 2.0 (aka Donut). Ang added that the device will have Sony Ericsson's unique style and though he did not elaborate on what exactly that meant, he did refer to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and its use of the interactive panel interface.
There were earlier rumors that Sony Ericsson would release an Android phone by the summer, but considering that the Android 1.5 Cupcake update is just now being rolled out to T-Mobile G1 owners and Sony Ericsson's device will run Android 2.0, this scenario seems doubtful. Or perhaps the next-generation operating system is farther along than we thought? Wishful thinking?
