With the flood of gorgeous 1GHz Android 2.1 handsets being announced and released this year, you may have forgotten about the Xperia X10, which was first announced last year. Either way, it’s shipping now. Read on for the details.
The Xperia X10 features a 4.0-inch (480×854) touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, stereo Bluetooth (A2DP), an 8GB microSD card with support for cards up to 16GB, and is available in black and white colors. It will ship with Android 1.6, but Sony Ericsson has promised to update the X10 to either Android 2.1 or Android 2.2.
What about the camera you ask? It takes 8.1 megapixel photos, and features an LED flash, 16x digital zoom, autofocus and tap-to-focus, face recognition and smile detection, geotagging, video recording, and image/video stabilization. If you want to see what it can do, browse the sample pictures tag at the Sony Ericsson product blog.
And of course, there’s Sony Ericsson’s Timescape, which puts all your messaging and social networking contacts and communications into the one place. As I said earlier in the week, this kind of functionality is becoming ubiquitous in smartphones, and will very shortly be relegated to the things we don’t bother mentioning, like “it makes phonecalls”.
The Xperia X10 is available unlocked for $769.95 from timtechs.
