Sony Ericsson is no newcomer to the phone market, nor are they a newcomer to the smartphone market. Sony Ericsson’s true inexperience exists in their first phone to launch with Android, the Xperia X10. In the past, Sony Ericsson had created top of the line devices with ultra-unique user interfaces and overall sexy looks. The only problem was that those phones [the Xperia X1] were simply too buggy for most users and we heard many complaints from numerous users about Sony Ericsson releasing a device that simply wasn’t finished.
So now we are looking at Sony Ericsson’s first foray into Android
, the Xperia X10
, and their release of the device into the US market only a few months ago. The only problem is that this device is running Android 1.6 which was released on September 15th, 2009. This time difference equates to the phone being released almost a year before the device’s launch… furthermore, there had already been updates released by Google to 2.1 and 2.2 which significantly improved almost every aspect of the operating system. Many critics of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 specifically pointed to this issue as a sticking point for their dissatisfaction with the device or why it was a failure. Sony Ericsson has stated that they expect to roll out an Android 2.1 update sometime in 4Q 2010
, but to many that is too little, too late.
Today we will be reviewing the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and determining whether or not the device as a whole is an effective smartphone that runs as it should, and whether or not the lack of Android updates drags down the device.Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Specifications
