Get Your Rogers Xperia X10, April 15 2010

We talked about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 coming to Rogers a while back but we were missing a key piece of information. The X10 is now slated for April 15th, 2010 release according to inside sources. As you may recall the phone was set with a worthy line-up of qulity specifications. The only downside is that it comes with Android 1.6, well Sony Ericsson’s version of Android, which is yet to be seen by the public. Since the first announcement there have been rumours of the X10 finding its way to Android 2.1+ before the end of the year which is something to look forward to and hopefully will give some assurance to prospective buyers. The final list of specifications for the phone are:

  • 119 × 63 x 13mm; Weighs 135 grams
  • 4-inch WVGA (480×854 pixels) capacitive touchscreen
  • GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 CPU
  • 8GB microSD included; 1GB internal memory
  • Pre-loaded applications such as Mediascape and Timescape
  • 8.1-megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom, auto-focus, touch focus, facial recognition, smile detection, geo-tagging image, & video stabilizer
  • Android 1.6

In regards to pricing we hear that the phone will cost $149.99 on a 3 year agreement and $549.99 no strings attached. So tell us, will you be picking it up or at least checking it out when it hits retail stores?

    The 2.1 update is already up anywhere the phone is sold!

      Or possibly just the version of the update service… doesn't say anything about it.

  • I got my Xperia yesterday, and it really is the explosive device, as the kids like to put it. Really, it's like there was an Android-shaped hole in my existence I had no idea about, and the XPeria fills it nearly perfectly. The Timescape and Mediascape apps are surprisingly useful – my only complaint is they don't go far enough and cover all events happening on the phone – and the camera is the first phone cam I've tried that really can stand in for a point and shoot. The screen is wonderful – large, bright and very sharp.

    The keyboard is a little fiddly, but I've quickly gotten used by it (turning on vibration for keypresses makes a huge difference). Mediascape doesn't synchronize with Flickr, a major drawback. Some way to simulate a trackpad on-screen would be nice too. I am very, very happy with it so far.

    • I like your idea of a trackpad on the screen, I might make an app for that…thanks for the idea!

      • Yes, I've thought about that too, but so far my Android coding-fu is nowhere near up to the task. You might need to to have some way to pop it up and hide it as needed, and to let the user move it around depending on the app so it doesn't obscure some other on-screen control.

  • thank you so much for sharing. great post!!! like this :p

  • Is anyone still using their experia?
