The Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog is reporting that Sony Ericsson's rather stellar showing
at Mobile World Congress isn't quite over yet. As you might recall, the joint venture owns UIQ
, so it would make some good sense that it'd save a couple surprises for UIQ's MWC press conference, which doesn't go down until the tail end of the show on Wednesday. One of those surprises might just be this, a UIQ-powered candybar going by the codename "BeiBei" that features a dizzying (and frankly, nonsensical) array of navigation buttons and a fairly buttoned-up appearance that should appeal to businessfolk. Another possible UIQ debut is said to be "Paris," a higher end device. If this all pans out, it was rather brilliant of Sony Ericsson to let the X1
fervor calm down before launching another volley, wasn't it?
