Sony Ericsson announced the new Xperia X10, which will be the first in a series of phones to arrive in the first half of 2010 from Sony Ericsson. The X10 will run Android 1.6 (Donut) and is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Sony says that the X10 will have a new user interface that features a number of custom applications developed by Sony Ericsson. The two signature applications are Timescape and Mediascape. Timescape is a messaging application that lets users access all of their communications in one place, including social networks. Mediascape is a media management application that lets users more easily find and access their media, including YouTube and Sony Ericsson's PlayNow apps store. The X10 features a 4-inch WVGA 480 x 854 pixel touch display that is scratch resistant. The X10 will have quad-band GSM/EDGE radios and two different 3G configurations, including 900/2100 and 800/850/1900/2100MHz UMTS/HSPA. It has an 8.1 megapixel camera that supports geo-tagging, face/smile detection, image stabilization, auto-focus and flash. It runs Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS and Wi-Fi, and has tight integration with Google services, such as Maps, Gmail, Calendar and Talk. It will be available in the first quarter of 2010 in black or white. Pricing wasn't disclosed.

1700 MHz

Does that mean the folks over at T-Mo will sell it?
Sorry, no. SE accidentally listed 2100MHz as 1700/2100MHz. The two configs are 900/2100 and 800/850/1800/1900

Droid who?

I'd say the only thing Droid has over this is Android 2.0.... and this device will most likely be updated to 2.0 eventually!
Eventually, now why would you release a phone with an operating system that is out of date, 2010 is a few months to go and if Motorola can have Android 2 in a couple days why can't sony get their act together and, have this phone on Android 2 also.

1.6 android what?

Now why would they anounce a phone based on 1.6 when 2.0 will be in stores on the Droid in a couple days?

I mean, seriously now...

With a slew of bigger, badder devices coming out, the choices are getting far more difficult.

Me? I am waiting for the phone with a 21 inch screen! Lol.
Ha Slammer very funny. Personally I think a 4in screen on a cell phone is a bit much. 3.5 & 3.7 is plenty big enough on a cell phone. Supposedly in the future there will be miniature projectors built right into cell phones, we'll be able to project a ...

The specs are nice but

because it is still being made by a Sony Ericsson joint venture, the quality probably will not be that great since anything that Sony lays its hands on becomes garbage...

Shame it's not CDMA for those of us in the states that have a good network. Sad
