Xperia X10 – The Dream phone
A dream with ten times of experience and that is X10.
Today I will share a dream where symbian should make this as inspiration towards more innovative performance.
Sometimes you would dream of your dream phone that were packed of lots of goodies you need. The superb camera, big screen, cool UI, nice looking phone or even your favorite brand embedded on its body. It’s a special phone for me and I would share it to you, on how I fell in love with her.
Let’s start the specs and features sheet of my soon to be my fiancée.
Primary recipe for X10
Style & Looks
Form Factor: Touchscreen Bar Phone
Chocolate bricks or gold ingot was been since the time of first civilization here on planet earth and who said holding a brick is a cumbersome or clumsy fashion?
Screen: 4.0” Capacitive Screen, 854×480 screen resolution
A shiny screen with a topping of scratch resistant and a crispy resolution is tasty treat for everybody. The X10 is the 2nd phone to have a screen resolution of 854 x 480, Motorola Milestone is the first.
It’s already a big appetizer to have a 4.0 inches of screen, it will be finger-friendly screen for sure, but, being one of a capacitive screen the X10 doesn’t have a multi touch function. But, someday for sure it will be develop easily because it has already the basic requirements and that is the capacitive screen.
Dimensions: 199 x 63 x 13mm, 135g
A sexy phone because of the slim 13mm with a base of just 63mm and a height of 199mm. It’s a relief and comfort in hands and Sony Ericsson made the back of the phone resistant to slipping off your hands. This phone is really a master piece of the company, because we all know that this phone was designed by the company itself and exclusive for X10 only.
Some people would not like it size because they have small hands or they don’t like putting it on the pocket, but, it’s a matter of adjustment time after time.
Engine and Machinery
Processors: Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon 1 GHz processor
This sounds weird! Where is my PC’s cpu? Oh my, it’s on the Xperia X10. YES! 1Ghz of speed. I’m wishing that my other phones could catch up in the speed of X10. Few phones already attached with this CPU and X10 is so lucky to have his main dish a super VIP treat.
It will handle dozens of applications running simultaneously without a hassle or sweat on my darling.
OS: Android 1.6(Donut)
The X10 will run by Android Operating System 1.6 or Donut. All android phones are capable to upgrade its OS. Just for example we have the latest 2.0 version on Milestone and 2.1 caught on some droid phones, so, in simple concept with added a coffee on Donut we can upgrade it to Éclair or 2.1 (Oh, I said concept sorry donut + coffee = éclair).
Memory: 1GB internal ROM, 256MB RAM, with microSD card slot plus 8GB in the package (upgradable to 16GB/32GB)
All hardware where accompanied by this ROM and RAM. 1GB of storage is so plenty for dozens of applications and 256MB RAM gives a smooth flow while running heavy applications.

One of the main dishes is having an 8.1MP camera loaded on the phone. It can take up to 3264 x 2448 pixel and can capture a video at WVGA(800×480)@fps. The ingredients that make the X10 camera outstanding is the UI, where the company designed and developed it. With a touch focus both on the picture and video mode.

The UX (User eXperience)
• Timescape – One of the original Sony Ericsson’s UI exclusive for Xperia X10. It is where all your contacts and communications where bundled in one package. Bringing your friends and families in one place and also you can add their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
• Mediascape – Access your media files like your music, video and pictures. Browse them easily and enjoy with the cool UI. Play video, listen music and explore pictures are the dedicated function of this media scape. I think the X10 can’t paly VidX/Xvid files temporarily, the phone is still on the developing stage and we hope it will carry a support to play these files.
Here’s a video which shows how to use Timescape on the unreleased X10:

In the race of mobile phones, surely X10 will have a good fight and a promising win over many competitors in the market. With many people needs supplied by the X10 surely the mass and fans of Sony Ericsson will bite the bait. What they want is what the company made and what the company wants is to have massive Xperia users around the globe.
The official release of the phone in the market is on the first quarter of next year, probably 10th of February the X10 will hit the market. Hopefully the X10 will be a success and will have a straight path towards the business sections. With relatively bad news about SE Satio and X2, I know the company already learned their mistakes.
