Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro 2 shows up in the wild?

Another unannounced Android smartphone from Sony Ericsson just showed up in live pictures today on a chinese message board. The device is said to be running Android 2.4 (?), has an tiny 3″ HVGA screen, a 1GHZ CPU with an Adreno 205 GPU….hold on a second.. this doesn’t make much sense right? If it’s indeed a 1Ghz Qualcomm chipset with an Adreno 205 then it can only be an MSM8255 but there’s no way that SE will pack such a chipset into a low-end device which only has HVGA screen. The other possibility is the mid-range MSM7230 (used in the T-Mobile G2, HTC Desire Z) but it doesn’t add up either because it’s only clocked at 800Mhz so the specs mentioned in the post seem fishy at best. The Neocore score is also on the lower end of the spectrum…

I’m now also seeing funky rumors flying on Twitter claiming that Honeycomb is Android 2.4 and not Android 3.0. This is IMO not the case and it has already been pointed out that Eclair was Android 2.0 and 2.1 so there’s no reason why 2.4 isn’t still Gingerbread.
