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

  1. Built in camera for photo and video recording. What is a Sony Ericsson without the camera.
    • 8.1 Megapix
    • Autofocus
    • Digital Zoom up to 16x
    • Face recognition
    • video recording
    • Image stabiliser and alot more
  2. MP3 Player with Bluetooth stereo
  3. Video Streaming and Entertainment
  4. Connectivity GPRS/EDGE/HSPA/WIFI
  5. And ofcourse touchscreen
  6. Amazing Email and SMS UI.

This is just one of the slew of mobile phones release this part of the quarter of 2009.  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.

One response to “Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is out”

  1. Hi anyone, I have a niggle… Yahoo and google roadmaps keeps beginning up on it is very own in background and taking loads of battery with it. For example, yesterday I took it off charge and it was sat idle with all the screen blanked for about 4 hours. When I flicked it on I was stunned to determine that the battery was only 50% full which is lousy even to the x10! When I looked at what was working, I uncovered Moxier mail (no surprises there) and Google Roadmaps.
