Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 (a.k.a. Rachael) just made another public appearance, confirming the rumors that its official announcement is coming as soon as 3 November. An official sales brochure of what is Sony Ericsson make-or-break project appeared online, revealing another particularly cool part of the handset.

Update: Sony Ericsson have already setup a mysterious landing promo page for their "next big thing", coming on 3 November. The only link available on this landing page leads to Sony Ericsson homepage but not without including a referral for its origin, which quite directly mentions Rachael ( Well, the mysterious landing page is no longer such a mystery. Ain't that right, Mr. Watson?

Now back to that leaked XPERIA X10 sales brochure. The new fact that we managed to get out of it is that the Android-running handset will pack 32GB of internal memory, expandable even further with memory cards. That puts the XPERIA X10 on top of its class, matching the Nokia N97 record.

Just don't get overexcited about that 1080p logo on the brochure. Much like Sony advertise their digicams, we bet it doesn't have anything to do with video recording, but instead indicates that the camera can be set to capture FullHD 1920 x 1080 pixel images (which is mere 2 megapixels really, so not a big challenge for a 8 megapixel camera).

So with the official brochures printed and ready, the market release of the device itself can't be too far away. Will Sony Ericsson manage to do it in time for the Christmas shopping spree?

In addition to what I said down there, it is about how you design the set, inside and out. I draw over 20 hand sets and if we over come some physical limits, we can easily fit 3.5 inches screen into handset size of SE's P1 while still having some but...
