Slim Gingerbread "Anzu" Phone From Sony Ericsson Leaks, Showing 4.3-Inch Screen

It seems we weren't the only ones doubting Sony Ericsson's future. In a poll last month, you guys voted on exactly when the company will die—and the results ain't pretty. Will this super-slim Android-running Anzu save them? UPDATED

It's been leaked by the Xperia X10 blog, and is rumored to be their next flagship phone (taking over from the Xperia X10). Will it show up with the Xperia moniker later? Quite probably—ANZU is just the codename, for now.

The leaked photo shows it running Android 2.1, but according to the leakster it'll launch with Gingerbread (2.3). A HDMI-output will be added for the "very, very slim" phone, which is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, too.

What would make you go Sony Ericsson, people? A lack of their TimeScape UI over Android? Better quality hardware? [Xperia X10 blog via EuroDroid]

UPDATED: The Xperia X10 blog has published more pics of the Anzu:
