A handful of pictures leaked on SE4M's forums suggest that a new slider might be in the labs for Sony Ericsson, badged with the classic "SE123" designation shared by all the company's official prototypes -- many of which have been leaked
well ahead of release in recent memory, so we see no reason why another couldn't escape. Here's the thing, though: doesn't this one look awfully un-Sony Ericsson-like? Admittedly, the classic SE design language is getting a little long in the tooth, but this particular unit looks like a pretty drastic departure from everything we've seen recently, right up to the blockbuster announcements
. Who knows?
