A random Polish auction site probably isn't the first place we'd think to look for leaked prototype Sony Ericsson hardware, but heck, maybe it should be. This here stylish, brown, brushed metal candybar showed up recently on allegro.pl, bearing the telltale "SE123" badge on its rear and all the signs of a successor to the 9.4mm W880i
: a listed 3.2 megapixel camera (up from the Ai's 2 megapixel piece), UMTS, 12mm case thickness, Memory Stick Micro M2 slot, and a slightly -- okay, significantly
less ridiculous numeric keypad. You might argue that it's a step down in the looks department from its supposed predecessor, but with the better cam, better keypad, and we'd imagine a slightly tighter fit by launch, we're guessing it'll have a few takers. You didn't forget EDGE this time around, did you, Sony Ericsson?
