I got to spend a bit of time with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android phone last night while in New York. It is an interesting device, to be sure, but I have to be honest in saying that I’m not really feeling it.
The hardware is pretty, and the display is gorgeous, but the feel of the device (pre-production as it is), just feels too cheap. And while I think Timescape and Mediascape are visually appealing, I don’t think it’s something I could really get into. A regular 3-panel homescreen is also available, with regular widget support, but that’s certainly not what Sony Ericsson is pushing.
The device isn’t likely to hit store shelves for another couple of months yet, so there is still plenty of time for things to change and firm up.
In any case, watch the video and check out some of the photos, which are located after the jump.
