Sony Xperia X10 – Canadians Celebrate

Today the entire world’s eyes were fixed upon all of the live blogs, video streams, and articles pouring out about two of Google’s new latest releases. The Nexus One Android Phone and the Google Web Store. While you might suspect Canadians were sulking about its lack of availability in Canada, Wrong! We were celebrating a victory of our own; the confirmed release of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.

The phone will be running Android 1.6 and while that may have Canadians wondering how long it is until we get Android 2.1, you can be happy to know it’s got some new tricks for an old dog. Listed below are the technical specifications for the phone(via AndroidInCanada.com).

  • OS: Android 1.6
  • Dimensions: 119 × 63 x 13 mm
  • Weight: 135 grams
  • Includes: GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack
  • Display: 4-inch WVGA (480×854 pixels) capacitive scratch-resistant touchscreen
  • Memory: 8GB microSD card included, with 1GB of internal memory
  • CPU: 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250
  • Camera: 8.1MP with 16x digital zoom, auto-focus, touch focus, face recognition, and geo-tagging

What really stands out with the X10 is the inclusion of a similar, if not the same, 1GHz processor included in the Nexus One. This processor will show Canada some of the fastest speeds it has ever seen from Android and hopefully make a dent in providing Android awareness to the Canadian market. Sony has taken Android and improved upon it by adding new features such as Sony Ericsson Mediascape and Timescapeâ„¢ that add to make a for a completely new way to experience Android. Videos of these two new features can be found below. The release of the X10 is expected for the second quarter of this year.

The question is… will you wait for your Dreams and Magics to be updated to 1.6, or will you drop it like an old girlfriend for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10?

    Price? When will it be available in Germany? :(
    It's hard to decide, Nexus One oder Xperia.. Xperia looks too big but has a lot nicer design and UI.
