These could quite possibly be the first pictures of Sony Ericsson's rumored XPERIA S3 smartphone. Unlike the Windows Mobile-powered X2, this handset will boast Android. Technical specifications have not yet been released. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The Sony Ericsson Jalou looks like jewelry, and the similarities don't stop there. On the outside, this clamshell phone features a mirror-like casing that measures 73 x 45 x 18.2mm.

The first thing about the phone that gripped our attention was its overall size. The device is extremely compact and will certainly not take up much of what's usually considered quite precious in a ladies' handbag, i.e. space.

Sony isn't exactly synonymous with using any rear-projected glass displays in their handsets, but the rumored Kiki shows the company just might be going in that direction. No word yet on pricing or availability.

That supposedly upcoming Android XPERIA that Mobil dug up might have our minds, but it's this leaked handset, the Sony Ericsson Kiki, that has won our hearts.

Sony Ericsson isn't known for coming out with Google Android-powered smartphones, but the "Rachel" definitely changes that. Featuring a "1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HSPA and an 8 megapixel camera." Continue reading for one more picture.

It's unclear how big the touchscreen is, and other details are scarce -- there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, so that's nice, but unless we're severely misguided, there doesn't seem to be a slide-out keyboard.
