Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Announced

xperia-x10After a few months of rumours and leaks about the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 and it’s change of name from Rachael to X3 and finally to X10, it has now been officially unveiled. The new SE Android based phone runs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor built by Qualcomm and has a healthy 4 inch capacitive touchscreen display which isn’t quite the size of the HTC HD2, but is still quite a large screen to work with.

It runs the Rachael Android UI which we showed a little of yesterday that features a complete overhaul of the media menus and video playback. As well as the fast processor, large screen and nice UI the phone has an 8.1 megapixel camera although on the downside for now, the phone is a little choppy and the snapdragon processor seems to quickly kill the battery. Don’t be too worried about that though as the UI is a very early stage as the phone isn’t getting released for another few months yet. We expect that when it is released the battery and choppy issues should be all sorted.

The phone has a low amount of internal memory although an 8GB microSD card is included in the package to fix that problem. Also there are no multi-touch features on the phone it seems which seems odd considering the screen being so large that would be a great match.

If SE can fix the choppy system and short battery life by production then they will have a great and sleek looking phone on sale.
