Sony Ericsson Rachel Android device leaked - so is a video of its UI

The video above is [supposedly] for the previously leaked Rachel Android phone by Sony Ericsson. It appears [obviously] to be a custom Android build, similar in concept to the HTC Hero's Android build, as opposed to than the "Google Experience" shown in the G1 and MyTouch3G. The UI does look incredibly sweet, with its 3D effects and "somewhat" easy functionality. The phone itself, shown below, does not feature a physical keyboard, meaning that it relies on a virtual one. We did get a glimpse at the keyboard in the above video, and it does look a little cramped. Hopefully its not as small as it looks in the video.

As for the looks of the phone, Rachel is probably the best looking Android phone we've seen. Not only does it not have big clunky buttons in the front, but this also allows a large screen to occupy the face of the phone. I wish we had more for specs, but we will have to wait for the official PR in order to see what Sony has in store for us.
