Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
The X10 comes with the stock Android browser. It is a fine browser that does a good job of rendering HTML web sites. Sony Ericsson has made no obvious modifications to it, and it worked well during my testing. Web sites loaded in an instant via Wi-Fi, and only took a little bit longer via 3G. Phone Scoop popped up in almost no time at all.
The browser supports multiple open tabs, has a nice visual bookmarking system, and offers advanced controls if you care to dig into the settings menu. With Android 1.6, there's no hope of viewing Flash content on web sites. The X10 doesn't even have Flash Lite on board.

The X10 allows users to customize the handset about as much as any other Android device. Wallpapers, ringtones, alerts and the like are all easily altered. There are a handful of different themes from which to choose, and the color of the main settings menu can be changed, too.
With three home screens, users will need to be efficient in their widget, shortcut and app selections for the main panels.
