Sony Ericsson Nypon may be a smaller Arc HD

We’ve been seeing a lot of the Sony Ericsson Arc HD, code-named Nozomi, but it may have a smaller, nearly-identical brother called the Nypon. The only telling difference between the above picture and those we had seen earlier is the placement of the front-facing camera; otherwise, it has the same stark, blocky design, and single silver band for navigation keys.

While the Nozomi has a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 touchscreen, the Nypon LT22i here will only be 4 inches and 960 x 540 resolution – which by any everyday consumer’s standard is still pretty freakin’ sweet. In fact, I’d be willing to to go for the Nypon if it meant a lower pricetag and better battery life.¬†Unfortunately, we don’t have any more details beyond that. The difference in processing power will be the clincher for power users. With any luck, Sony Ericsson will manage to squeeze out something with a dual-core processor in 2012.

One unforseen bonus of Sony buying out Ericsson’s stake in the joint venture: we’ll get to see more badass-sounding Japanese codenames like Nypon and Nozomi. CES is right around the corner, so here’s hoping either one of these beauts makes an appearance.

    Hmm I think Sony should invest on a software engineering team to produce an OS that is compatible with open source projects rather than being on the least open source OS on the market
