Remember the Sony Ericsson Nozomi? This handset leaked out with a few "in the wild" shots a little over a month ago, touting a glowing ring of light around its base and a rumored spec sheet that included a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and 4.3-inch 720p display. Now the Nozomi is back in the news, this time courtesy of a poster over at the HKEPC forum. The image offers us a good look at the Nozomi's face as well as a peek at its skinned Android experience. Unfortunately, the source didn't offer up many details about the device, but he or she did corroborate the rumors that it's packing dual-core power and that the screen we're staring at in the photo is indeed of the 1280x720 variety.
So when might you be able to get your mitts on this glowing slab of a phone? Engadget has heard that some carriers in Hong Kong are already testing the device, so it could make a debut sometime in the next month or two. There's been no mention of any kind of U.S. availability, but with CES 2012 coming next month and the fact that Sony Ericsson unveiled the Xperia Arc at CES 2011, well, that may just be a recipe that produces a Nozomi at the big show in Vegas. Stay tuned.
