Today we caught up with Neil Dutton and Peter Farmer of the Marketing team over at Sony Ericcson. They gave me a quick demo of the upcoming Rogers Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10. First and foremost the device does not even compare to anything Sony Ericsson has put out in the past. This is a new brand new beginning for them and the X10 clearly shows it.
This will come with Android OS 1.6 and has a beautiful 4-inch screen WVGA touchscreen that’s scratch-resistant (resolution is 480×854). You’ll see in the video the movies take up the entire screen with no wasted space. Overall the X10 weighs 135 grams and has an elegant look/feel to it. If comparing to other Android devices even the iPhone, this is one you should consider as the design is a massive shift to a better overall experence. This will be available in Black and also Rogers will be releasing a White model at release (sometime in Q2).
It comes with everything you could want: 8.1-megapixel camera with auto-focus, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack and the new “Mediascape”, “Timescape” and an “infinite” button” that brings everything in your world together.
