Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 Android set for 3 Nov announcement?

If news of the imminent Motorola Droid announcement wasn't exciting enough for Android fans, it looks like Sony Ericsson is set to make a similar claim.

Though the message on the Sony Ericsson website isn't Android specific, if there's any upcoming SE handsets capable of "crossing the line" between the extraordinary and the magical (cue eye-rolling) it would have to be the upcoming Xperia X3. We first saw leaks of the X3's interface back in July, followed by a leak on the website of online retailer Expansys. Details are still scarce, but rumours suggest that the X3 will run Android on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and if it's released after the Moto Droid then we assume it will run on version 2.0 of the Android OS — a powerful combination indeed.

Stay tuned for more details on 3 November, and cross your fingers this is in fact the X3 and not a new range of stereo headphones.
