Xperia handsets eligible for the new version of Gingerbread will gain the ability to do video calls in Google Talk, take panoramic 3D pictures, allow users to enter text by swiping fingers from one character to the next, take screengrabs without resort to the Android SDK, and see a greater level of Facebook integration in apps.

All this will appear on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V, a handset equipped with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5Mp camera and a 3.7in, 480 x 854 "reality display" touchscreen.
