it is high time sony should rls the phone now... it is a negative thing from sony that they always announce the phone n rls it much later unlike nokia...it is a very good phone but atleast they should have kept 2.8 inch screen instead of 2.6...
Ok, I've been looking back on this phone pretty much every day as I'm seriously considering buying one. Aside from poor battery life, I'm now noticing possible concerns with the QWERTY buttons. If they're too "clicky", they're not going to be fun to type with!! It's either this, or the iPhone :S
I think it is a right way of ericsson - mini phone with touchscreen and keys. But depending on price, if it cost about or less 200eur, it will be very popular phone.
i like this phone, i will buy this as soon as it will be release in the philippines, its cute but powerful.
I think this phone would be awesome if ericsson can give it a better battery life. A 4hr (2G) and 3.5hr (3G) talk time is just unacceptable
The phone looks good is small and fast... might be my next one ... but I read that the MP3 player is disappointing and no equalizer,pity,for me this is the most important in a mobile... do not want to walk around with 2 app (mobile + mp3 player)
The mini pro has a removable battery but the Mini X10 has a non removable battery!
You're right about that Jon.
However, its not final yet, so there's still hope and as gsmarena says: "Disclaimer. We can not guarantee that the information on this page is 100% correct. Read more"
They still have 2 months. Simple tweaks can (sometimes) do miracles. Either way, i'm waiting till the end of May to make my descision.
All in all its all that I currently need in a private phone.
- great snapshots
- great OS
- physical keyboard
- capacitive touchscreen
- its SE... (however, I find myself liking HTC more and more, that Touch 2 design is so nice, if only it had android)
I've seen the device has screen width as 314 (without changing the zoom) on the browser but not 240 as mentioned in the specification.
Is it mentioned wrong in the spec or its the wrong firmware which is causing the resolution set to 314.
Thanks for your time in advance.

At best this means it means it will last just under half of your C902, so 2 days. However more realistically (owing to the fact this is a 'smartphone') it will last no more than a day. Just compare to other smartphones who's batteries are advertised to last longer and still onl last 1-2 days!
Still so annoyed by this. SE if you're reading please sort this out!
I saw this video of the interface on you tube, it's pretty fast considering the small screen the cpu had to work with. And that's a winning formula for me. I just hope the price is competetive enough. 330 EUR is a bit steep, SE should consider what consumers can choose from (Samsung, LG & Nokia) based on this price range. Remember the Nokia 5800? Pricing was it's key to success. Full range of features at a modest price. If only SE can afford to emulate that...

But yes, you are right, SE has good battery's, I bought the C902 right when it came out and i'm still using it till this day with around 5 days of standby time (about 20 smses and around 20 minutes of calling a day) which is like heaven after having to deal with a sammy D900 and a Nokia N82. Seeying the size this X10 has, the battery seems OK, not great, but OK.
I think I will try this one. Never had a sliding qwerty (azerty in my case). And the size is just classy :).
PS. To the people who say its a ladies phone, you've got it wrong, its a phone which ladies find cute, all the more reason to get it. Just don't pick pink, that's ladylike though ;).
Sony Ericsson was in its prime when it had the P series phones back in 03-05. After a bad experience with the experia x1, This x10 should have came with android 2.1 or future 2.2 not the obsolete 1.6. I still have hope for them though.
I like this phone,its very very nice! Buy it ok? @parang tanga
jack, 23 Mar 2010I notice that Sonyericsson is very very poor technology on battery if compare to Nokia.Check out the XPERIA X10 battery and you'll surely change you mind. And BTW, Sony Ericsson's high ends uses Li-Polymer batteries compared to Nokia's standard Li-Ion. And just look at their n900. It weights 181 grams!!
