This new handset that’s expected from Sony Ericsson could be their first attempt at a candy bar QWERTY model. Their P1i featured more of a semi-QWERTY keypad and their Xperia X1 came with slide out version. This handset, dubbed the Faith aside from being a Windows Mobile 6.5 handset running on a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor at 600MHz, is also part of their new Greenheart series.

The Faith has been reported to feature –

  • a 2.4-inch TFT LCD with a 320 x 240 pixel resolution
  • 3G, EDGE
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, USB
  • GPS with A-GPS support
  • 3.2MP camera
  • MicroSD card support
  • 3.5mm handsfree port

Perhaps they thought it was finally time to get into this arena and compete a little more fiercely with the likes of Nokia’s E-Series and Samsung’s Omnia Pro. The Faith, when launched would be available in Silver and Black. The pricing is yet to be announced.

A couple of the reports have also mentioned that the handset has “Panels for 24 hours life”, which is still a bit of mystery as to its meaning. Could we expect to see solar panels on the device? Your guess is as good as mine – we’ll just have to wait and see.
