After successful launched of Google Nexus One mobile technology now Sony Ericsson is all set to launched it first ever Android mobile technology, the XPERIA X10, in London two months ago, but I had to wait for CES to get my first look at the device on this side of the Atlantic.
As you’d expect, the Sony Ericsson stand at the massive Sony Electronics booth was crowded with people wanting to get a look at the handset. And there’s no wonder why—the X10 is a sight to behold. Its slim profile and clean lines hit high on the beauty scale, and I enjoyed how sturdy and comfortable it felt in my hand. Front and center is a brilliant display that measures 4 inches; that’s bigger than the display on the Moto Droid.
Inside, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 offers plenty to gape at. It runs on a Snapdragon 1GHz processor and offers an 8.1-megapixel camera with flash and video recording, a music and video player, Wi-Fi, GPS, a full Web browser, PC syncing and USB mass storage, a personal organizer, and a speakerphone.
The X10 runs Google Android, and Sony Ericsson adds on another interface layer with its User Experience Platform. Though we don’t see any reason to hide Android behind a mask, the Timescape feature was somewhat appealing. Like Motoblur on the Motorola Cliq, it organizes your communication in a central place.
