At CES 2012 event, the manufacturer has already announced a couple of Android handsets – Sony Xperia S and AT&T’s 4G LTE capable Sony Xperia ion. A couple of weeks ago, we first heard about Sony Ericsson MT27i ‘Pepper’ handset. Now, a new report carrying the NenaMark’s Benchmark Database, has revealed out some more details about Sony Ericsson Pepper handset.
