Sony Ericsson XPERIA X3 unboxing? Looks fake to us

Do you love Sony Ericsson enough to fake an unboxing of their upcoming Android smartphone?  Now there's no official confirmation that mobile-nova's unboxing set of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X3 – aka "Rachel" – isn't legitimate, but having peered through our handy loupe at the pictures we're not convinced that this is the real deal.

For a start, there are none of the close-up shots we're used to from unboxings.  Secondly the purported X3 is always partly hidden, and there are no side or rear pictures; surely if you have a chance to play with Sony Ericsson's 8.1-megapixel handset, you'd show the nifty optics on the back?

Much more likely to be real – and far more mundane – are the leaked images over at the SE-NSE board.  They're just as blurry as these leaks always are, but at least they show a working device.
