Seems like there is some sad news for Sony Ericsson fans - the two rumored Sony Ericsson smartphones have been cancelled. We've seen those handsets leak online numerous times and we've always duly informed you. By some twist of faith (or engineering/marketing whim) Sony Ericsson have decided that the P5 and the G702 (Beibei) will never see official release.
Some critics of the unannounced Sony Ericsson P5 claimed its specs are too inadequate to stand up to competing smartphones. Outdated before even released, was their argument. Well, we can't quite agree, but that discussion is already out of place. The Sony Ericsson P5 has been cancelled for good. You can see some of the appearances of the mysterious UIQ smartphone and learn more about it.

The Sony Ericsson G702 (codenamed Beibei) has also obviously got the sack for rather unknown reasons. There was some criticism against it too - mainly due to its looks, but still it remained a capable smartphone with touchscreen display, Wi-Fi and built-in GPS receiver.

Word is out on the street (meaning online) that it's after all possible that these handset might see the light of day on the Asian market. It still remains a mystery as to why world-wide availability is left out of the question.
