Sony Ericsson has unveiled its latest flagship handset, the XPERIA X10, which had been previously referred to by the codename Rachael. The smartphone is promised to be the first of many devices built upon the company's Android-based UX "Open OS" platform. The X10 is the highest-end Android phone to date and features a fast 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 480x854 resolution, and an 8.1 megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus.
The interface offers a Timescape utility that can be used to browse and manage content such as Facebook, Twitter, photos, e-mails and text messages. Recorded videos, YouTube, and PlayNow are all accessible from the Mediascape area. An "infinite button" combines a variety of interactions for one person into a single view, while facial recognition automatically matches pictures to the phonebook.

Zafar, 09 Jan 2010SE official website this phone is due to release in feb..yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh better have sumthn ... moreWhat was so disappointing about the X2? My provider didn't carry the X2 and I'm wondering because on paper it looked really good. I was hoping to get one, now I'm really excited about the X10 as my provider will carry it. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Sony Ericsson, if you read these, please release this as a contractually available phone for AT&T in the US for god sakes. It will help out your debt in tremendous ways... please please please do it...
SE official website this phone is due to release in feb..yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh better have sumthn good after dissappointing x2
Alex, 08 Jan 2010Are you sure that OS will be updated? X10 is too good to have not newer version of OS. The OS will be updated, don't worry. This is an awesome Android phone, with the biggest screen, 8MP camera greatest CPU speed, good UI(User Interface)
The phone will be available probably on March. At February 15th, SE will announce new phones and smartphones, visit then Gsmarena to see the new phones :)
Travis, 08 Jan 20101.6 os really, surely this is wrongwhen will there be some confirmation regarding the OS? I hope that the latest android system is on! Any idea from anyone...
Whats with the delay again,it cudnt b bug issues hav any1 heard of any android devices with bug related issues thus far? I think its a gd OS.I can only speculate & say they prbly want the device 2 launch with 2.0 or 2.1,that wud certainly b better recieved by the masses if they r thinkin in that direction.Its a lg waitin game,I certainly want 2 try an android especially this device,thought bout nexus but that amoled is a serious hindrance,all it does is consumes less power.
PopovP, 09 Jan 2010It will one hell of a phone! I can't wait to release it. It would be around 18th of February, right?i`m not sure about it, yet.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2010Sorry what i was meant to say was.... Is this 1.6 Android OS upgradable to 2.0 or 2.1?Yes, brother, it can be upgrade.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2010"have you guys heard about Nexus One? it definitely better than X10. amoled everyone? com... moreIf i am not mistaken, Nexus also suffer several issue, and nexus don't support multi touch for temporary.
If the android 2.1 is coming out in march, then i'll just have to suffer a bit longer to be able to get my hands on the X10... Does anyone know the estimated price?
do you think we would be able to change the cover from black to white, vice versa?
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2010have you guys heard about Nexus One? it definitely better than X10. amoled everyone? come on, ... more"have you guys heard about Nexus One? it definitely better than X10. amoled everyone? come on, wake up!"
reports of nexus one say daylight legibility is extremely poor (engadget).
reports of X10 say daylight legibility is extremely good (gsm arena).
Sony (unlike HTC who makes nexus one) have THEIR OWN oled technology and manufacturing. If they thought oled was best right now, the X10 would have it.
You need to look past the buzz words and WAKE UP!!!!
Note: I like the nexus one too, but suggesting the screen is better than X10 is WRONG.
