Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
I’ve posted the two videos I shot of the Xperia X10 that Sony Ericsson sent me a couple of weeks ago. It was my intention to do a full review of the device until Sony Ericsson informed me that I was working with a phone with pre-production firmware.
When a device is great, that’s of no concern. Great is great. When a device is as painful to use as this X10 is, though, it causes problems. Now every issue I have with the phone that I write about has to be covered by the “pre-production” disclaimer, meaning that everything is subject to change by the time this thing hits retail shelves.
While I suspect X10 will still be a pretty lousy phone by the time it goes to market, I can’t say that with any real certainty. In the end, this device was, more or less, a waste of my time.
In any case, you can watch the videos for yourself. I shot and reshot them many times in an effort to make the phone look good, but the results are still quite telling. I’ll post a 2000+ word story on the Xperia X10 on MobileBurn tomorrow now.
Part 1 of the video is below, part 2 comes after the jump.

The Xperia (aka Xperia X10 in other markets) debuts here in Japan on April 1st.
It’s a decent product.
My box was bigger and contained quite a bit more stuff.
All the box innards were packed into smaller boxes and not loose like your video.
It also came with nicer headphones and a 16GB card inside unlike the 8GB in your example.
I don’t know if that can be chalked up to yours being a “pre-production” version or what.
The screen reportedly has a plastic film on it that can affect touch sensitivity. Like other people, I have unknowingly put an additional screen protector on top of that
In the end, Timescape is interesting to combine Twitter, Facebook, Mixi, Messaging, Call History, Mail, etc…
but in reality the issue is more the effort it takes to allow the device to update timescape makes me not use it. More important is the contacts/dialer system. All that “clever” timescape type information about someone is all available in their contact so displaying it in splines is not so important. If you want to read people’s tweets, then a real twitter client is much more appropriate. Timescape is really only good to aggregate that information so it is in your contacts.
Typing messages and wanting corrections is largely irrelevant to timescape. The only real complaint I have about this device is the onscreen keyboard for English; it has trouble recognizing key presses at times especially at the edges of the screen and is really slow to input (considering with single-touch 1.6 you have to lift your finger up before you press your next key). However, Sony-Ericsson’s POBox keyboard for Japanese input is really great.
There are landscape keyboards available for many applications but only if the application supports it.
I’m not sure why one would even check for “multi-touch” zooming on an Android 1.6 system.
You complained about the home browser screen. This is set by carrier. Mine opens to NTT DoCoMo’s gateway. It is, however, completely settable in the browser settings like any other browser.
Finally, again Timescape is not to manage social networks; it is only to aggregate them.
Does this device have some issues? Yeah, particularly around the touch input at the screen edges and Sony-Ericsson’s own keyboard when using English input. But it is still a decent device.
