Android exposes power to extend the platform to design Custom UI for richer, User experience. Earlier, we saw this in HTC Hero’s Sense UI, now SonyEricsson is ready with it.
Device is code-named “Rachael,” and today a video claiming to be the device’s custom Android UI has been seen over youtube.
Like the Sense UI, Rachael’s UI retains the three-panel “shade and drawer” Android layout, but completely overhauls the graphics and widgets.
The UI design is innovative, the card-style layout where call records, SMS/MMS, e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook feeds are arranged as sub-headings under a contact’s “card.” Also included in the video are icons for “TimeScape,” and “MediaScape,” which are currently unknown.
The device itself is still unannounced, so a launch date, price, and exact specs are still uncertain. However, the shots and video are of similar quality and design to others on the SE Web site, so the device could soon make an official debut there.
The device is really powerful with the Snapdragon CPU clocked at 1GHz. The ‘Rachael’ boasts of a 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 3D graphics. The gaming and application felxibility would be limitless.
