Finally it's out. Sony Ericsson's next year big gun is out of the dark. It's been called their flagship for next coming year. Xperia X10 or previously called SE X3 or SE Rachael. This is their first android featured phone. So everyone is looking forward for it. The phone has a large 4 inches, 65K color TFT capacitive touchscreen. It has the same scratch resistance screen as iPhone 3GS has. With a dimension of 119 x 63 x 13mm and weighing at 135 grams, this baby will really give a lot of smartphone in the market a run of their money. Imagine a 4 inch TFT screen for you to surf the net or viewing documents. We all know how useful that is nowadays.
Internally it has 1 GB of storage and 256 MB RAM running on Android OS 1.6 (Donut). The phone featured the new Snapdragon 1 GHz processor, so expect some really heavy duty processing speed from this baby. All the usual connectivity such as Class 10 GPRS, EDGE, HSDPA, HSUPA, Bluetooth and USB 2.0 comes as a standard. Packed with a 8 MP, 3264 x 2488 pixel camera, this baby can take some really serious picture quality. Auto focus, LED flash and touch focus (similar to iPhone 3GS) is also featured in the phone. It comes with image stabilizer, face and smile detection software too. Something worth mentioning is the the digital compass in the phone which is similar to iPhone.
We are all expecting a lot from this new X3 next year and hopefully it's not as disappointing as X1 when it was launched previously. X1 boost a lot of hype during it's time but faded away quickly too. Although Android 2.0 (Eclair) had been launched but SE still stick with the older OS 1.6 (Donut) as they had some difficulty adjusting their proprietary UI for OS 2.0. Their launch for the baby would mostly be after the festive season which mean they will lose out on the big profit which they can earn but I guess the development team are more concern of the quality and stability of the phone upon launching rather than rushing out an uncompleted work. So we will all see what is this baby gonna impact the market next year.
