The Sony Ericsson Kumquat (ST25i) has been popping up all over the place recently, though with each day bringing us closer to MWC, it’s not hard to see why. The latest about the phone tells us something interesting about the device. Apparently the phone might be called the Sony Ericsson Xperia U when it goes on sale. This information comes from the Indonesian Postel website, which is likely to be an accurate source – since it is the Indonesian Telecoms Regulatory body after all.
It looks like Sony is keeping to the convention of naming its devices Xperia followed by an alphabet – which is quite confusing when it is also keeping names like “ion” around. I wonder what kind of names we’ll be seeing next? The ST25i/Kumquat/Xperia U is expected to be announced at the MWC next month.
