i think the readers of this forum are getting bored bcoz of all these non related posts, so...
A quick look at the Xperia X10 for those who are new with this phone:
--The first thing that caches our eyes is the nice and sleek design.
--And the huge shiny scratch resistant screen! TFT capacitive touch screen at 4 inches - 854×480 pixels. Shows 65k color, but it'll show 16m color after OS update because the hardware is capable of showing 16M colors and for now it’s limited by android 1.6 (Not to mention that even with 65k colors the screen looks really good)
--Then the unique and beautiful UI! The Mediascape and Timescape (performance has got better after the latest firmware update )
--An excellent 8MP camera that is FULL featured, autofocus, LED flash(but it remains photo light until OS gets updated), touch focus, image stabilization, geo-tagging, face and smile detection (it can recognize up to 5 face to save their picture between previous taken pictures from those people or under their contacts), with WVGA at 30fps video recording, and after OS update it'll be an HD recorder!
--3.5mm audio jack & micro USB port and 8GB memory card included, officially supports 16GB but 32GB memory has been successfully tested on it!
--384mb of RAM and the 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.
--Android 1.6!! but it's still great because of the SE custom UI (for example it can transfer files via bluetooth unlike so many phones with 1.6!) and it'll get android 2.1 plus with UXP upgrade in Q4 2010 (September) maybe a bit earlier and then it'll support flash too! And the greater news is that SE has promised to update the X10 through its life time!
--And the build quality is excellent! It really feels great and comfortable in hand.
AND, of course no phone is perfect and this phone has some lacks too:
--No front camera (like some other devices with android 1.5 or 1.6) but video calling is possible by using Fring
--No multi touch (SE is working for an alternative and we know that it has “1 finger zoom” feature)
--No build in radio(on the other hand it has MW600 with radio and brilliant audio quality and you can enjoy listening to music or radio, 10 meters away from your X10)
--No DivX and XviD video playback
--Average loudness for loudspeaker (but the audio quality is excellent)
--Earpiece seems to be a little weak
As GSMArena says, “Most of the Xperia weaknesses are hardly deal breakers and most people could live with them, don’t underestimate the amount of hard work put into the X10 during the long manufacturing process. The delay was definitely worth it”
So…it’s not the best, but some people might like it ;)
[deleted post]come on mate, you'r really welcome here, answer me please...

we keep our fingers crossed :-}
new nk, 05 Aug 2010i also said that x10 can get froyo, i read on google, but everyone bashed me that it cant happen!it's alright mate, lets wait and see ;)

Anonymous, 05 Aug 2010is this true? x10 will not get froyo?it wasn't an official word, i saw it in some website, but i found this one today:
"People from the Android team have confirmed that what was reported by many sites as Android 3.0 minimum requirements (e.g. 512MB of RAM) were actually just recommended requirements. So, the X10 could get Froyo (2.2) or Gingerbread (3.0) if SE decides to do it as it has the requirements to handle it. It would be kind of odd if the X10 was the only 'high-end' phone to not be able to handle 3.0. Though I'm not sure if SE would go with Gingerbread as it would mean that their skinning of the Android OS would be removed. Anyway, all this is just speculation at this point."
so i think there is still a possibility :)
[deleted post]Hi there...

I'll probably just leave the phone as is... at least until the root developers get all issues sorted out.

But if you're just a normal user, just leave it as it is, it works great. There are pos and cons on rooting the phone but the main benefit is you will have access to the operating system...
Is rooting worth it? Or is it just a way to keep yourself busy fixing the phone?
I've tried reading through tons of threads on rooting the X10 but there seem to be a lot of issues encountered by those who've tried rooting their phones.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 201065k colors only?That's the limitation of Android 1.6 version, and not the phone. Once it gets updated to Android 2.1 it will get 16M colors. But in just over a week of experience with the phone, I never get to noticed it. I presumed that given the size of the screen, and the pixel density, it's hardly noticeable. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am speaking based on my experience because I own this phone...
[deleted post]im not blind.. this what i want. and the phone gives me what i want.. i know it lack some of the features that other phone have but its ok.. im satisfied wth it..
