CES 2012: Nozomi officially announced as the Sony Xperia S

The Sony Ericsson LT26i had been referred to by several names in the past and it was most commonly referred to by its codename – Nozomi. At CES 2012, Sony Ericsson has officially announced the handset and has christened it the Xperia S. While it may have been the brand's worst kept secret, there is nothing as tantalizing as an official unveiling. As per a blog post by SEMC Blog, this handset is devoid of the Sony Ericsson branding and instead has just the ‘Sony’ logo.
