Sony Ericsson first Android smartphone, the Xperia X10, is a real powerhouse. While it's only running Android 1.6/Donut, the Xperia X10 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU at 1 GHz and features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, aGPS, and a digital compass. It comes with a large 4" capacitive WVGA (480 x 854 pixel) touchscreen and features a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED photo light. On top of Android, which Sony Ericsson slightly modified, the Xperia X10 features two brand new user experience services called Timescape and Mediascape which is all about social media, contacts and multimedia including photos, videos and music.
Timescape manages all your communication with one person in one place - straight from the Android home screen. It shows Facebook and Twitter updates as well as the call log, E-Mails and text messages and photos in one stream. Mediascape is the smart way to get all the music, photos and videos you want from your favorite friends and artists. It accesses content offline and online including the X10's memory card, YouTube and Sony Ericsson's PlayNow service.
Last but not least, the Xperia X10 recognizes up to five faces in a photo and automatically stores them under your friends in your phone and in Timescape.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is now available or soon to be available from carriers and retailers around the world and is released in "Sensuous Black" and "Luster White". The suggested retail price without a contract is 599 Euro.
