NTT DOCOMO to Launch SE Xperia X10 in Japanese Market
NTT DOCOMO, the Japanese telecommunications giant, announced today their launch of the Docomo Smartphone Xperiaâ„¢, manufactured by Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications.Â This is the handset known as the Xperiaâ„¢ X10 in markets outside Japan. The astonishing Android handset will be available on the Japanese market starting April and offering two variants “Sensuous Black” and “Luster White”.
The spec sheetÂ provided on the pressÂ releaseÂ outlines the same specs as the western version of the Xperia, a 4.0 inches WVGA (854 x 480) screen, 8.1 megapixel shooter, 1 GB of ROM, 384 MB of RAM, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HSUPA/HSDPA data communications and 801.11b/g wireless access.
Unfortunately it also confirms that this Japanese version of the handset will be launching with Android 1.6, which is disappointing given the amazing hardware Sony Ericsson has put together for this device and the fact that by the time it launches half the Android world will be rocking version 2.1.
