Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has been officially announced! Alongside the super-cool device, the company also unveiled its UX open platform.

Here’s the X10 specs rundown:

  • Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity – 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, plus tri/quad-band HSPA 900/1700/2100 (T-Mobile USA?) or 800/850/1900/2100 MHz
  • 4-inch WVGA (480×854 pixels) capacitive touchscreen
  • 8.1-megapixel auto-focus camera with an array of camera technologies including touch focus, face recognition, smile detection, image and video stabilizer, geo-tagging. Where’s flash???
  • 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 CPU!
  • GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1GB of internal memory, plus a microSD memory card slot (8GB card should come in box)
  • Google apps pre-loaded
  • Android 1.6 Donut – I’m guessing it will be upgradable to 2.0 Eclair
  • Size: 119x63x13 mm, weight: 135 grams
  • Colors: Sensuous Black and Luster White

In a nutshell, pretty impressive first Android phone from Sony Ericsson.

As for the mentioned UX platform, it is developed not for the X10, only, but for the whole series which will be launched in the first half of 2010. Included with UX are two signature apps Timescape and Mediascape, which allow users to manage their social networking activities (Timescape), and browse all the media, both on the phone and on the Internet (Mediascape).

And that’s almost it. Plus we have a video to share which Sony Ericsson kindly uploaded to YouTube. It follows after the jump. Enjoy!

    Wow, this phone is huge. In the vdo, the phone looks huge in the ladys hands. I like the specs, why doesn’t it have Eclair already installed? This could be my first Android phone. My Touch Pro 2 is starting to worry. Hope it works with Tmo USA. I am very impressed.

    This phone looks awesome!!! But when are developers gonna realize that you have to have a qwerty keyboard to reach the mass US market. Also where’s the flash? What’s the point in having these great camera features if I can only shoot during the day or lighted areas?? If it had these I’d buy first day!!

      You certainly don’t need a physical keyboard to reach the US mass market, ask Apple. Android has a virtual keyboard. Also, the phone DOES have a flash and I do believe it can be seen in the video as the small circle below the larger camera lens that looks just the right size to hold an ultra-bright LED.

    I like this phone, I think this phone will give the iphone a run for its money. I also think that Sony Ericsson should really consider getting the rights to have this phone’s OS upgraded to the Android 2.1.
