Well, now that we know that the p950i aka Hermione exists and will be released, thanks to Dr. Shunke and his merry band of lawyers, we feel so much better about posting wild conjecture and potentially Photoshopped images of it for you. This page, which may or may not be accurate, seems to have just about everything you could want about the future p950i including weirdly creepy spy cam pix and fulls specs, which appear after the jump.
Thanks, Dr. Shunke, for supplying absolute proof that this device exists. We never would have been able to do it without you.
SonyEricsson Hermione prototype [Hermione]
Dimensions: 5.5 x 10.5 x 2.0 cm (P910 is: 5.8 x 11.5 x 2.6 cm)
Silver on the flip and edges (top and bottom).
Darl grey in the main body and behind the keyboard.
(On the spy pictures you can see it's gold. Gold, it seems, means it's a prototype in the final stage of development)
Type: TFT LCD, touchscreen (source)
Dimensions: 4.5 x 6.0 cm
(P910 is: 4.2 x 6.4 cm)
Resolution: 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA), 262 K colours
Tri-band GSM (GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900)
Front camera for videophone (probably)
Back camera with 2 MegaPixels resolution (1632 x 1224 pixels), CCD (probably)
Autofocus, Macro (probably)
The back of the phone, it seems it's closer to the W800 than the K750.
Flip closed, there's a 5-way button and 2 rocker buttons. Top portion is for virtual keys (displayed on screen), bottom left is return (U arrow sideways) and right is C. Like the the previous models, the flip can be opened and dismantled.
Flip open, touchscreen plus a qwerty keyboard in the body of the phone, similar to the P910 keyboard but with larger keys.
The jog-dial is smaller than the P910's.

Space-saving LFBGA320 package
Symbian OS 9.1
New ActiveSync system like, licensed from Microsoft.
Rumours say it doesn't run UIQ 2.1 software out of the box. UIQ 2.1 programs will have to be recompiled so that they can be run on UIQ 3.0.
Developers need to purchase a compiler license to make programs.
Applications must (?) be Symbian signed.
