hiphone-3gs Now how about that – an iPhone 3G S clone that is even close in naming convention – the HiPhone 3G S. This model from China (where else) will come with a 3.2" touchscreen display, Wi-Fi connectivity, an integrated FM tuner, the Opera browser and portable TV.

The Danish phone site Mobil has unveiled limited details of the upcoming Sony Ericsson Andriod based handset code name “Rachael” here is the English version posted on their site:

Sony Ericsson ”Rachael” is the codename of the Swedes’ first Android-based mobile phone, that is expected to be announced later this year. It will be part of Sony Ericsson’s series of XPERIA products. We’ve got our hands on internal documents about the phone, that seems to have the potential to be a sales success.

The phone is based on the Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon platform, that enables processor speeds up to 1 GHz, and HSPA-speeds up to 7.2 Mbps. This platform will also sport great 3D graphics capabilities.

The phone’s built-in camera is an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus. There’s also a 3.5 mm jack connector as well as a mini-USB connector at the top of the phone. The touch screen seems to be quite large, but as of yet there is no specific information about its size.
