Sony Ericsson has confirmed an event at the February 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, at which they will announce their new Xperia family.

At least four new Xperia phones are expected to be announced, from recently filed copyrights by Sony Ericsson: Play, Neo, Arc and Duo. The first is likely to be the rumoured PlayStation Phone, and two are confirmed to be Android devices, of which one is likely to be be the Xperia X12 “Anzu”.

However, Tezawaly from NanoPho.jp speculates that it is possible that other members of the family could be the rumoured Xperia X7 and X7 Mini, detailed here.

There are good reasons to be sceptical: Sony Ericsson have emphasised Android on their devices recently, and have complained the deliberately uniform user experience of Windows Phone 7 limited their ability to differentiate their devices. However, the Mobile World Congress has a deserved reputation for surprising announcements.

Do any of our readers still expect Windows phone 7 handset announcements from Sony Ericsson in the near future? Let us know below.
