SE Xperia X10 flies to US

Cell Phone manufacturer Sony Ericsson has announced the launch of Android-powered Xperia X10 in the US on AT&T platform. The smartphone's 8.1-megapixel camera with smile detection, face recognition, autofocus and LED flash hopes to become a major selling point. Those expecting Xperia X10 to run on latest version of Android will be dismayed as the smartphone runs Android 1.6 and so far there is no word about an update. In early May, Sony Ericsson said that it would deliver Android 2.1 to the X10 in Q4, but without 2.2 users won't be able to make use of Google's cool new android features.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 comes with a 2GB in-box microSD memory card. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 also sports a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, as well as a Timescape solution for viewing Facebook and Twitter updates, text messages and e-mails in a streamlined view. By clicking on Sony Ericsson's infinite button in Timescape, users can also bring up and view all communications from a single person in a single place. The Snapdragon processor, though initially hyped to be one of the most powerfull avalable has since lost it's position to overclocked A8 Cortex's on the Nokia n900s that have reached a friggin' 1.15GHz from the factory 600MHz. That's a bloody 90% overclock!

Anyway, the Xperia X10 will be available in black at AT&T stores in the US, authorized retailers and online from August 15 for $150 after a two-year contract agreement and minimum smartphone data plan.
