Video: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Launch Party
9 May 2014
Excerpt: Last night Sony Ericsson and Rogers held a launch party for the upcoming Android-powered Xperia X10. They confirmed all the leaks over the past few weeks of the launch date being April 15th with the promo price on a 3-year contract $149.99 . It was a good event and we captured it all on video for those who could not make it.Below you’ll see a few speeches from: - Peter Farmer, Director of Marketing, Sony Ericsson Canada - Andrea Gaal, General Manager, Sony Ericsson...
Summary: A decent camera and beautiful screen are just the beginning for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, which is packed with juicy hardware features. The software's not bad either, although it doesn't quite live up to the latest smart phones, due to an older version of the Android OS and custom apps that are more about the sizzle than the sausage
Cons: Photo light doesn't come on automatically; social-networking integration could be better; sluggish at rare times; no multi-touch; its older version of Android lacks a handful of features.
Conclusion: We’d rather hoped that Sony Ericsson would have nailed the basics by now, but text messaging and calling on the X10 left a lot to be desired. It’s a bit of a let down, especially after the long wait we’ve had for the handset to make an appearance – it was first announced almost six months ago.
Excerpt: Back when the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 was announced, it was the talk of the town. After all, it had a huge screen, fast processor, and it had all of those things well before any of the competition. But, as fate would have it (or Sony Ericsson’s track record would keep it), the X10 has still not seen official release (even if preorders are being taken, right now), and between its announcement and now, there’s been a few other devices not only announced, but released.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 review – the best featured smartphone on the market
17 June 2011
Excerpt: It’s been a long time coming, but here finally is our Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 review. Sony Ericsson have taken an age to get the Xperia X10 out the door, which is why the X10 review has taken so long.
Conclusion: Overall, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is one of the best Android handsets we’ve seen. It’s ideal for buyers who want great photos or need to keep up to date with activities on their social media networks.
Conclusion: A gorgeous Android phone with loads of promise – we hope the finalised version is as good as it suggests it could be.
Pros: The Xperia X10's biggest draw is its bespoke UI – the Rachael skin has been hyped as the ultimate way to manage your media and keep on top of your raft of social networking hook-ups. And in terms of looks it's every bit as good as HTC Sense and Motoblur. You can pull together your phone’s most important features in one place. The Timescape contacts feature couldn’t be easier to set up: feed it your email, Twitter and Facebook deets and it’ll give you a chronological v...
Cons: The Rachael UI on our preproduction model makes things worryingly sluggish. And although the capacitive touchscreen is fine, the unlock screen fails to pick up our prods. However, we expect such kinks to be ironed out come the X10’s release. It's also stuck on Android 1.6, so it's well behind the 2.0 Milestone and the 2.1 Nexus One. With promises of an update, that will change, but it does mean you’ll be short of the latest features, including Google Maps Navigation. ...
Conclusion: A bit of both is here in the X10: innovation and being ridiculous. Don’t get me wrong, in some rare cases like the massive size of the Droid X, or the restrictions on the iPhone 4, being ridiculous is good, but being a little numb-witted (in the X10′s case), that takes a lot away from its potential.
Pros: Fast, always responsive processor., Good, fast 3G on AT&T., 4-inch screen is preeeetttty., Amazing build quality., Strong 3G and voice signals, all the time .
Cons: Poor loudspeaker and slightly tinny earpiece., Outdated with Android 1.6., Less then a day-long worth of battery life under heavy use (about 18 hours)., No multitouch., No sideloading of non-Market apps.
Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X10 Gets Reviewed, Touched, And Compared - Results Mixed
4 December 2010
Summary: The X10 would have been pretty impressive 6 months ago, or maybe even 3 months ago. However, with a slew of new phones coming out every month, all running at least 1Ghz Snapdragons, it will be hard to make X10 the final pick, especially if it is running Android 1.6. Having said that, we admit the X10 may prove to be a strong competitor and, depending on its success, start a line of Android products.
