Hands on the with Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
by Mark R
We covered the Xperia X10 when it was first announced, and I was pleased when Sony Ericsson sent me one to review.
They sent me the 3G version from AT&T, and I enjoyed using an Android phone with a 1GHz processor and 4 inch touchscreen. The screen is not as clear as the Galaxy S phone, but still looked quite good and it helped to have a 3.5mm headphone jack for decent sound.
The phone has a main menu that will slide up with a flick of a finger, and the user has access to all sort of Apps like Mediascape and Timescape.
Mediascape is one place where I was able to access all the favorite YouTube clips, Picasa photos, music, videos, and other pictures. As for Timescape, that is another grouping app that organizing Tweets, Facebook messages, emails, photos, and text messages in one place.
As for the camera, it is supposed to have “more Megapixels than any other smartphone” at 8.1. It has some interesting camera features like face detection, as well as a decent photo editor.
Of course, the most fun that I had was simply downloading Apps, such as a barcode scanner so I could download more. Also included is Bluetooth 2.0, 802.1 b/g Wi-Fi, and an expandable memory card for up to 16GB.
Check it out form AT&T if you are interested. I do recommend it as a pretty decent smartphone.
