Today we’re letting everyone know that Telstra will launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia™ X10 on 4 May. It’s our second Android-powered smartphone.
It’s certainly one of the more distinctive looking smartphones we’ve seen. The Next G model comes in piano black with metal highlights. It also sports a massive 4-inch screen.
The Android underpinnings mean Xperia X10 comes with popular Google applications like Gmail and Google search and access to thousands of apps on the Android Market. It will also feature made-for-Android apps from Telstra including Mobile FOXTEL, Whereis® Navigator and Yellow Pages® Mobile.
Like the HTC Desire, it packs a fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor – good for multitasking and rendering web pages quickly.
It also comes with two apps that are unique to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. The first is ‘Timescape™’ which displays all of a customer’s communication in one view including SMS, email, Facebook posts and tweets making it easier to keep up to date.
The second is ‘Mediascape’, which allows customers to browse and access media content saved on their phone or available online – for instance on YouTube. Unique integration with the BigPond® Music service lets customers view and purchase associated songs from inside the app.
To see the X10 in action, have a look at the short video with Telstra mobile phone product manager Ben Bevins talking about the X10’s features.
Availability and Pricing
It can also be purchased outright for a RRP of $1099.
It’s available from [T]life, Telstra stores and dealers from 4 May.
