Mark your calendars for November 3 if you have been waiting on the Xperia Android phone. Project Rachael is the name given to Sony Ericsson’s custom UI for Android. We first saw Rachael back in July, but few details have leaked since then.

The Sony Ericsson phone has been called the Xperia X3/X10 and is rumored to be an absolute beast.

Highlights of the device include:

  • Android 2.0 with custom Rachael UI
  • 1 GHz Snapdragon platform
  • 8.1 megapixel camera w/ touch focus, smile shutter, face detection, ISO settings
  • 4.1 inch OLED capacitive display
  • 32 GB internal storage

The device has been captured by the BlurryCam over at MobileCrunch or you can see some slick device renders below.

If you are curious which United States carrier might launch this phone in 2010, here is a hint.
