REVIEW: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10

The famous XPERIA X10 is the first Android to come from the Sony Ericsson family! Yes it might be a little hard to believe as the world is now up and about with Android sets but Sony Ericsson wanted its first to be perfect; hence the late arrival. This is the phone which you will remember for life if it chooses you as its owner! Their blue-themed interpretation gives a whole new experience to those people who have had some experience of using an Android phone.
A few features to state in this phone are a Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support, 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support, 4" capacitive touchscreen, 16M-color ready (65K effective colors under Android OS v1.6), Android OS v1.6, Timescape and Mediascape UI, Excellent social networking integration, Excellent build quality, 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, touch focus, image stabilization, geotagging, face and smile detection, WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) video recording @ 30fps, Wi-Fi and GPS with A-GPS, 1GB storage, microSD slot, bundled with an 8GB card, Accelerometer and proximity sensor, Standard 3.5 mm audio jack, microUSB port (charging) and stereo Bluetooth v2.1, Document viewer.

There are a few things that are lacking in this beauty though like no DivX and XviD video playback, no smart and voice dialing, no secondary video-call camera (or videocalling whatsoever), no free GPS navigation solution, no Flash support for the web browser, no FM radio, feeble loudspeaker together with a poor audio quality.

There are weaknesses but only a perfectionist would make any of them an excuse for not going for the set. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has been assembled after a lot of hard work and the basic reason for all that hard work was that the company wanted it to be at par with its other Android rivals.

We have heard that itís quite possible that Android 2.1 will very soon be available for XPERIA X10, when we donít know but we know this much that with Android, XPERIA X10 will become invincible!
