Finally the first ever Sony Ericsson to run on the open source Andriod OS is here. Codenamed Rachel, Xperia X10 is here.
With a wide array of features with bells and whistles some of them are
- Built in camera for photo and video recording. What is a Sony Ericsson without the camera.
- 8.1 Megapix
- Digital Zoom up to 16x
- Face recognition
- video recording
- Image stabiliser and alot more
- MP3 Player with Bluetooth stereo
- Video Streaming and Entertainment
- Connectivity GPRS/EDGE/HSPA/WIFI
- And ofcourse touchscreen
- Amazing Email and SMS UI.
This is just one of the slew of mobile phones release this part of the quarter of 2009. Â First phone to grace the Andriod OS is the HTC Dream last year.
I need to get one of these phone and start the trip on mobile development. I wanted to get an iPhone but due to lack of resources to get an Apple hardware so I can learn xCode. Developing apps on Andriod seems to be the most realistic approach and not too much investments on hardware.
