Sony has a wide range of successful brands, products, and technologies that we have begun to see crawl into their Android lineup. Sony Ericsson has thrown everything from an Android-laden Walkman handset to the PlayStation Suite of the Xperia Play at their growing range of smartphones, and new whispers suggest another brand might be revitalized with Android in the near future. Images have surfaced of a touchscreen device sporting familiar Android buttons and none other than the Cyber-shot name above them.
There is little to go off of but a couple of blurry images, so there is no telling if this will end up being a camera with an Android interface or a full-blown smartphone with an emphasis on photography. We wouldn’t doubt the latter as SE’s recent strategy seems to focus on creating devices that serve niche sections of the market. Create enough of these devices and you have the market covered. Take it as rumor for now, but we’re interested to see what Sony might pull of with one of those high-powered image sensors.
