Sony Ericsson Neo breaks cover again, first hands-on appears

Sony Ericsson hasn't even announced the Neo, but that didn't stop the good folks at Techradar from getting their hands on a unit.  Formerly known by the name Hallon, the SE Neo is the Android version of the Symbian powered Vivaz's unique form factor.  Ask anyone with a smartphone fetish and they'll probably agree that Sony Ericsson brings beautiful and very well designed hardware to the table.  The curved back and center mounted rear camera (8.1 MP) on the Neo are great examples of this.  The truth comes when you turn them on, though.  Techradar says that Timescape running on Gingerbread has been improved, but we'll have to withhold judgment until we get our hands on one.  In the meantime, head over to the source link and have a look.  You know you're as curious as we are.  [Techradar]
