Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 (aka Hallon) gets pre-announce preview

Sony Ericsson Vivaz 2 (aka Hallon) gets pre-announce preview

Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Arc may be the company's most eye-catching smartphone for the first half of 2011, but going by an early preview it might not be the best selling if the mid-range Vivaz 2 has anything to say about it. Mobile-Review has been putting a prototype Vivaz 2 - aka the Sony Ericsson Hallon or MT15i - through its paces, and finding it's far more than just a Vivaz with Symbian swapped for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

AT&T Sony Ericsson Vivaz gets September launch

AT&T Sony Ericsson Vivaz gets September launch

You'll have to forgive us, AT&T, but we're finding it more than a little difficult to get excited over your latest handset announcement.  The Sony Ericsson Vivaz was first announced all the way back in January this year, had its moment in the spotlight in Europe a couple of months later, and even spawned a sequel, the Vivaz Pro.  However, what AT&T obviously felt was necessary was a US launch several months after, and so from early September you'll be able to pick up the 3.2-inch cellphone from them.

That gets you a copy of Symbian S60, an 8.1-megapixel camera - capable of 720p HD video recording - WiFi and Bluetooth, along with AT&T 3G of course.  It's worth remembering that the touchscreen uses a resistive panel, though, and we can't say we were especially enamoured with the build quality of the Vivaz's plastic casing.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro hands-on

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro hands-on

Sony Ericsson's Vivaz pro potentially has a tough sell on its hands: its XPERIA siblings, like the X10 and the new X10 mini and X10 mini pro, have an arguably more eye-catching OS in Android, and a more impressive UI in the form of Timescape and Mediascape.  In contrast, the Vivaz and Vivaz pro both get S60, albeit with a little of Sony Ericsson's own tweaking.  Hands-on, both devices feel lighter than they look, though on the downside we weren't entirely convinced by the quality of the plastics.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo Review

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Neo arrives with something of a personality problem. Where the XPERIA Play was resolute in its gaming ambitions, and the XPERIA Arc promised to put Sony's living room prowess into a pocket-friendly package, the Neo takes on the competitive mid-tier mainstream segment, Android for the every-man. With luminaries like HTC's Desire S keeping the masses connected, can the Neo carve its own niche? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Ericsson Neo hands-on [Video]

Sony Ericsson's Neo feels more than a little familiar, just like the Vivaz did all the way back in January 2010, but this is really a brand new device wearing a borrowed suit. Running Android Gingerbread, it's a fairly chunky handset which runs pretty much like the XPERIA Arc, though with a 3.7-inch display rather than the Arc's stunning 4-inch Reality Display.
