Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
Filed under: Gadgets
If you're shopping for an Android cell phone for the gadget guru on your holiday list, the new Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is one of the best we've seen out there.
Fully-loaded with a big and beautiful crystal clear touch display and a super-fast processor, the Xperia X10 features an 8.1 megapixel camera with smile detection, face recognition, autofocus and a super-bright LED flash; as well as HD video recording. But what's really great about the Xperia X10 are its two built-in signature applications, Mediascape and Timescape, which make for a richer user experience.
Mediascape gathers all of the music, photos, videos and content from your memory card and online, letting you browse, search, listen and share all of your media from one place. So you can look at photos you've taken with the camera together with those from your Facebook and Picasa web albums. Or, when listening to a song on the phone, press a button to see related content about the artist from your phone, YouTube and even search results from Google.
Timescape organizes all of your interactions in chronological order, pulling content from Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, text messages, phone calls and photos making them easy to find with a scrolling menu.
The Xperia X10 also lets you download and install applications from the Android Market to customize your experience and has a built-in GPS to take advantage of location-based services such as Google Maps.
Available at AT&T for $99.99 and up, depending on service plan.
