After a few days of receiving info about the specs of the Sony Ericsson Nozomi, we can finally have a look at what the device looks like. There have been a lot of leaks in the last few hours, and the images below are the best ones I could collect. If you are sure of what you are looking at, Nozomi is the next phone from Sony Ericsson which is poised to be coming in the next year.

This is because the phone is supposed to get an Ice Cream Sandwich update in the near future. But how are we supposed to use the phone when it has Gingerbread without any physical buttons? This still remains a mystery to me.
