Cancelled Sony Ericsson SK19i QWERTY prototype appears in the flesh

in Rumours

Back in August we came across details of an unannounced Sony Ericsson SK19i smartphone. It was a QWERTY Xperia phone being developed for AT&T in the US and would have sat in between the Xperia mini pro and Xperia pro. Well the phone was cancelled and now we’ve come across the first images of the device.

It appears that someone on xda-developers managed to get hold of a dev unit and was trying to flash alternate firmware on it. Hence, the pictures below show that the phone has the model number as ST18i (Xperia ray). It seems like he didn’t really know what he had, but judging from the pictures it looks like we didn’t miss out on too much. Both the Xperia mini pro and Xperia pro have a much nicer design in our opinion. See the pictures below.
