Many Android fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the Xperia X3 from Sony Ericsson, featuring the Snapdragon process and a host of goodies. Well, they're going to do you one better. Sony Ericsson has officially announced the Xperia X10 (formerly the X3/Rachel) and has said it will be the first in a long line of Android based devices.
In the press release, Sony Ericsson says, "Building on Sony Ericsson’s entertainment heritage and combining rich graphics with intelligence capabilities, the XPERIA™ X10 introduces a new UX platform that will evolve across the product portfolio and expand over time continuously introducing new features and capabilities.
The UX platform builds on top of the Open OS and creates a unique Sony Ericsson user experience by combining best-in-class entertainment features with signature applications, unrivalled integration of social media services and a rich graphical user interface. The XPERIA™ X10 is the first mobile phone to truly humanise the way people interact with their phones."
To give them credit, the display does look absolutely gorgeous and utilizing the Android OS should deliver a great user experience. The device will feature:
1ghz Snapdragon Processor
4 inch 480 x 854 pixels (WVGA) Touchscreen
1gb of Internal Memory
8.1 Megapixel Camera
MicroSD Card Support
3.5mm Headset Jack
The device will be available in select markets in Q1 of 2010 and supports the following bands:
So CDMA users are a bit out of luck at the moment. No price has been set yet, or carrier confirmed, but this will make SE the third major handset maker to adopt the new OS from Google. A promo video from SE is featured below.
This is the one I've been waiting for. Q1 is too vague. I think Not having this ready for x-mas is a huge mistake. The others should take notes from Verizon and their bold yet brilliant marketing strategy of attacking the iphone to steal a lot of attention right before the holidays. The Droid is solid, but it seems they were content to just beat the iphone, instead of crushing it like this phone does. The Spec sheet is amazing on this thing.
Looks like sony is trying to comeback hard...
I love the phone, Tmo need to put some pedal to the metal with this one.
Not one is interested in the behold 2 or mytouch, scrap it already, and give us what we crave i.e HTC HD2
