If you aren't a tech geek, you may not know what the Xperia X3 is. To catch you up, here's a primer; the X3, also known as the "Rachael" is an Android smartphone with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4" touchscreen, and an 8.1 megapixel camera. It's pretty much the most powerful smartphone in town, and the fact that it runs Android makes it even more painfully desirable. We've been waiting for weeks to learn when it's coming out.

Boy Genius says our wait could end in January. They've heard "rumors" that the X3 will launch close to the first of the year, right along with the Xperia X2. Please note that there have been no official confirmations of this rumor. I can see a good amount of logic in the idea, though.

The X2 is a WinMo 6.5 phone, otherwise it's very similar to the X3 (albeit with a 3.5" OLED display). It could be that Ericsson wants to release two similar phones, each with a different OS as a way to sort of 'hedge their bets'. WinMo 6.5 is purportedly being developed by Microsoft to be an 'Android killer' (while WinMo 7 is supposed to take on iPhone OS), so it would make sense for Ericsson to want to have phones on either side of the race.

With any luck that, and the sheer amount of hope every Android geek out there has for the Rachael's imminent release, will be enough to guarantee us a hot new phone in January.
