The Sony Ericsson X10 Is A Stylish Android Handset
Released in March 2010, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has proven to be a hit thanks to a UK TV Advertising campaign which is poor attention to its wealth of features and aesthetic appeal. Boasting the popular Android OS, this powerful handset also features an impressive 8 mega pixel digital camera along with a 4 inch touch screen.
The XPERIA X10 utilises a number of different connectivity methods. This makes it an ideal handset for browsing the web on the move. Initial connection to the Internet is provided courtesy of 3G coverage whereby an HSDPA connection connects to the web at speeds of up to 7.2 mega bytes per second (along with HSUPA at 2 MB per second). In order to gain a faster Internet connection, Wi-Fi technology utilises the signals provided by wireless Internet routers, resulting in an enhanced browsing experience at broadband speeds. Class 10 versions of both EDGE & GPRS provide the primary method of connecting to cellular networks and the Internet in areas with little or no 3G coverage of Wi-Fi connectivity. Both Bluetooth and micro USB connections are provided as standard which offer users the opportunity to connect to other handsets and computers in order to carry out a range of tasks.
As mentioned, the Sony Ericsson X10 boasts a large TFT capacitive touchscreen measuring 4 inches, which utilises a pixel layout of 480x 854 to display up to 65K colours. This results in superb rendering of the on screen imagery with high levels of detail and clarity making it ideal for viewing photos and video files. The screen itself is manufactured from scratch-resistant materials and also features an accelerometer sensor which automatically rotates the on screen imagery according to the dimensions of the phone. Therefore, the contents of the screen can be viewed in both portrait and landscape forms.
A long list of applications and features gives the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 a high level versatility and everyday functionality. These range from a comprehensive list of entertainment features ranging from a versatile internal media player as well as a selection of pre-installed games. Dedicated applications offer direct access to Facebook and twitter meaning social networking fans can stay up to date with the latest news from friends and family in a matter of seconds and fire these popular websites. A number of location based features such as geo-tagging, a digital compass and Google maps functions thanks to the inclusion of GPS with A-GPS support. All of these demanding features are powered by v1.6 of the increasingly popular Android operating system which works in conjunction with a 1 GHz processor to provide lightning fast reactions of the user interface.
In order to store data such as media files and video clips etc, the Sony Ericsson X10 features an integrated micro SD card slot which comes with a pre-installed 8 GB memory card. This can be increased by installing a larger card of up to 32 GB. 1 GB of internal storage is provided as standard which can be used to store contact information and documents etc.
One of the more impressive features of the Sony Ericsson X10 is the 8 mega pixel digital camera. This is one of the most advanced cameras currently available on a mobile phone.
