Sony Ericsson Announcing Android 'Rachael' XPERIA X3 November 3rd ?

Okay, it's official. The next couple weeks are going to be HUGE for Android. Sony Ericsson just scheduled an event for November 3rd that promises to be "extraordinary and magical". What could this be about? Well, poke around the site's source code and you can find 'Rachael' mentioned by name so yeah, this is the announcement for our most anticipated Android device--the Sony Ericsson 'Rachael' XPERIA X3 (or at least, that's what we've known it as).

Though we won't commit to the official name of the device (some outlets are reporting it's the X10 or the Inifnity), it really doesn't matter. The specs are going to be gorgeous, the already leaked UI is amazing, and to have it announced so soon? Perfect. We're not sure what carrier the 'Rachael' is going to land on--we're leaning towards T-Mobile since AT&T hasn't acknowledged Android--but we'll soon find out on November 3rd!

To refresh you on makes the 'Rachael' so special: a 4-inch 800x480 touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 8.1 megapixel camera with flash and video recording, 3.5mm headphone jack, your usual slew of connectivity options, and its own custom UI.
