Sony Ericsson announces XPERIA X10, available next year

3 Nov

Sony Ericsson today announced its first Android phone – the XPERIA X10, which will hit shelves in the first quarter of 2010. Running on Android OS 1.5 (we are hoping by the time it launches, it’d be on OS 2.0 or the one after that), the X10 has a custom UI that Sony Ericsson calls UX. The handset vendor will port the UI across other platforms like Windows Mobile and Symbian too.

Like most ‘socially connected’ devices these days, the X10 also organises your Twitter and Facebook feeds from your friends under one roof, which we believe would be similar to how HTC’s Sense UI does.

What’s really innovative, however, is the face recognition feature, which recognises faces of your friends from photographs and tags them accordingly. This feature is already available on some social networking sites and this would be its first implementation on a smartphone.

On the specs front, we are looking at an 8.1 MP shooter, a massive 4 inch capacitive display, Qualcomm’s 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and the usual gamut of connectivity options.
