Ladies and Gentleman, the Android device that at some point turned into vaporware in some minds has been unboxed. The Sony Ericsson X10 is by far one of the most gorgeous Android devices to date and now, with an official unboxing, this thing best be right around the corner!
The video is just what it says – an unboxing – so it is rather short. The video unboxes both available colors of the device, Sensuous Black, and Luster White. The contents of the box are minimal, consisting of the handset, a charger, USB cable, battery, and a getting started guide. The essentials. However, I’d like to see some sort of protective case to protect that huge display. Even if it was something like the crappy neoprene sleeve you get with the Nexus One.
Glad to see this device getting some more love, the last we’d heard from Sony Ericsson in the Android space was the announcement of the two X10 Minis, which almost looked like they were going to be released before the original device. For those who somehow forgot about the X10, this is one of the best upcoming Android devices that will be available, for now. With a sleek body, 4-inch display, 8 megapixel camera, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and Sony Ericsson’s custom user interface, dubbed Rachael – which includes the Timescape and Mediascape user interfaces. The X10 is running on Android 1.6, but will eventually be upgraded to Android 2.1, or later. Rumors have pointed to a release on AT&T, or T-Mobile, but nothing seems to be finalized at the moment. The handset does support the 1700Mhz band that T-mobile uses for their 3G, so maybe there will be a big Magenta branded X10 popping up at some point.
Hopefully this baby will see the light of day sometime soon. Unboxings are great, but pricing and availability would be much better. I’ve been looking for a backup phone in case I hack my Nexus One to death.
