Pretty much what it says on the label with this one. The coverted Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is officially due for release on Vodafone UK in April this year. This release date comes shortly after the news that it will also be available in Germany around this time with T-Mobile.

The Xperia X11 is a unusual Android phone for a couple of reasons. First, it is one of the largest devices to run Android as a smartphone, primarily due to the fact that it sports a 4” touchscreen display. Second, it also runs its own user-interface over the top of Android, somewhat like the HTC Sense UI. However, from our first hand experience with the X11 a few months ago, it is safe to say that the device really does ‘hide’ Android significantly. The word on the street is that it should be possible for users to disable the Sony Ericsson UI but this is not something that has been widely circulated by the company. Anyway, here is what Vodafone has to say about the device after the jump. You can also visit their UK website here directly.

The incredible Sony Ericsson X10 is powered by Android™. So it’s easy to sync with your Google™ account – and with Picasa™, Google’s popular photo sharing site.

It’s a looker too, with a huge four inch touchscreen that’ll blow you away. Switch fast to widescreen by turning the X10 on its side. Then enjoy movies and the web in stunning definition – as well as photos taken with its 8.1 megapixel camera.
