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.
