Sony Ericsson planning to launch an Android smartbook this year?

Sony Ericsson is planning to enter the smartbook arena. But, the most surprising fact (or should I say, rumor) is that it will be an Android powered device. According to the guys at GadgetMix.com, some Taiwanese source suggests that Sony Ericsson is working on a smartbook to be released by the end of this year. No details about the device were available, but it is speculated that the the device “will use ARM processors to run some mobile OS, possibly Android.”.

This news is nothing more than a rumor as of now. But, it remains to be seen, how far this device will be acceptable in the market. Sony Ericsson is generally famous for its high prices. Will that be the case with this device too ?
