With the release of the manufacturer's first Android based mobile phone Sony Ericson delivers a phone equipped with the largest display, fastest processor and largest camera, ever to date.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is comparable to Apple's Iphone when looking at its dimensions, which are: 119mm x 63mm x 13mm. The mobile phone runs on a Qualcomm 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, which was first used in a phone by Toshiba, and recently was also used in the HTC Legend and Desire, which makes for fast running applications.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has the largest display ever seen on a mobile phone running Google's Android OS, and has a 4" touch screen. The largest screen ever placed on a mobile phone is on the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile device, which is 4.3"in size. The screen is capable of displaying 480 x 854, and is reacts well to touch, but is not capable of multi touch. The phone is equipped with a 1500 mAh battery, which supports up to ten hours of talk time.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 supports social networking through use of Sony Ericsson's Timescape application. The downside of this is the slow refresh rate of 15 minutes, which is to long for a social network application. The phone also has an older version of the Android version installed, which does not support all the features, the current version of the OS supports.


With the Xperia X10 Sony Eriksson has made a good first effort in delivering a mobile phone, with the intention of moving into a new direction. The main positive factors are the large screen, fast processor and more than adequate camera. However, the device needs work in the area of social networking, and support of the Android functionality. Many of these issues could be resolved through the announced software patches that will be released later this year.
