Well, that didn't take long. After a short wait, we finally have the full spec list for Ericsson's first Android headset, the 'Rachael' Xperia X3. UK retailer eXpansys has put up a pre-order page for the new smartphone that gives us more details about this hot new smartphone.

The Rachael comes out looking more or less the way we'd heard. It's got a high-resolution 4” touchscreen (no OLED, though), HSDPA, HSUPA, 2G Quad-Band, and 3G Dual-Band connectivity. The 8 megapixel has been confirmed, and we now know it sports auto-focus, 8x zoom, LED flash, image stabilization, smile shutter, and face detection. It's also got aGPS, WiFi, and VGA video recording. You can read the whole list on the pre-order page or here.

Unfortunately, we still don't have any further information on the Rachael's hardware. The current rumor out is that she packs a 1GHz snapdragon processor. That, along with the 8.1 MP camera, has been the primary reason for excitement about this Android handset. When the first X3s hit in Europe I'm sure we'll get to see an in-depth tear down.

There's no price information for the X3 yet. Since it's already up for pre-order on eXpansys that shouldn't be too far off. We've heard nothing yet about whether or when this beauty will launch in the U.S. If it doesn't, Ericsson's going to have at least one angry Android fan pounding on their doors.
