The mobile handset from the Sony Ericsson is all set to be unveiled on November 3rd and already many technology enthusiasts are waiting to lay their hands on the device which some claim as the first multimedia phone that runs on Google’s Android mobile operating system.

Though the video does not disclose too much detail about the phone, most analysts have high hopes from Sony Ericssons latest offering and they believe that the phone has the potential to stir up the increasingly competitive smartphone market.

Many expect the phone to appeal to corporate users, owing to multitasking support for apps which the Android operating system provides.
