Sony Announces Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android Smartphone
One of the latest additions to AT&T’s lineup of Android smartphones is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. This high end Android device is well known for its 4 inch touch screen and 8MP camera with dual LED flash. One of its main shortcomings is the fact that it will launch with the outdated Android 1.6 OS. Some point after the Xperia X10 launches, Sony will rollout an OTA software update for Android 2.1, which should be well received by Xperia X10 owners. In addition, the Xperia X10 features 8GB of memory onboard, memory expansion via microSD up to 32GB, pre-loaded with a 2GB memory card, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.
Sony pre-loaded the device with two apps that you may or may not find useful.
* Mediascape on the Xperia ™ X10 gathers music, photos, videos and content from your phone’s memory card and online, letting you browse, search, listen and share your media from one unified view. For example, view photos taken on the device as well as your Facebook® and Picasa™ web albums. Or, when listening to a favorite song on your phone, press Sony Ericsson’s infinite button to access related content about the artist pulled from the phone’s memory as well as albums, songs and video content from YouTube™ and search results from Google.
* Timescape™ is a unique communication application that automatically organizes social interactions in chronological order, leaving users free to concentrate on keeping in touch on-the-go. From Facebook® and Twitter® updates to photos, emails and text messages, a scrolling menu offers easy viewing and organization of all communications. Additionally, tap the Timescape™ infinite button to bring up and view all communications from a single person in a single place.
In terms of pricing and availability, AT&T will launch this baby on August 15 for the affordable price of $130 on a new two year contract. The device will only be available in a black finish, unfortunately. Users looking for a solid, mid-range, and affordable device should definitely consider the Xperia X10.
