We get the impression that Sony Ericsson didn't intend for this release to go out quite yet, but for what it's worth, we've now got official word that the rumored Kurara is the real deal -- and it'll be known as "Vivaz." Yes, Vivaz. Okay, now that you've had a moment to recover, let's take a look at the specs: S60 5th Edition (we're surprised they don't refer to it as a Symbian build in the release, but whatevs), 8.1 megapixel autofocus cam with image stabilization, face detection, and 720p video capture, FM radio, AGPS, WiFi, TV-out at VGA resolution, and a 3.2-inch WVGA (or 640 x 360... the PR lists both) display. It'll be available in four colors -- Moon Silver, Cosmic Black, Galaxy Blue, and Venus Ruby -- when it launches this quarter in both North American and global 3G variants with quadband EDGE. If you can get over the name, you love Symbian, and the Satio isn't for you, this might be your new objet d'envy for the first few months of the year. Follow the break for a hip-looking Sony Ericsson dude showing off the goods.

Update: And it appears Burson-Marsteller has pulled the release, so yep -- it wasn't supposed to go out yet. Enjoy!
