Orange has announced it will shortly launch the much anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, the first Android device to be unveiled by Sony Ericsson. Available from early April across all Orange retail channels, the X10 will be free on select pay monthly price plans and is exclusive to Orange in white.
The 3G+ enabled X10 is the latest device to feature Google’s Android operating system, and sees the introduction of Sony Ericsson’s new User Experience (UX) interface. The interface features great new applications including Timescape and Mediascape which allow users to organise the content in their phone in an intuitive way.
Timescape manages all communication with one person in one place. Browse through your conversations the bright way to check out Facebook, Twitter, photos, emails, and texts all in one go. Mediascape is the smart way to get all the music, photos and videos you want from your favourite friends and artists.
What’s more, intelligence capabilities integrated into Timescape and Mediascape can automatically recognise connections between contacts, content and media. By recommending alternative ways to communicate or guiding to new media experiences, consumers can discover more in a truly open way.
For example: Pressing the new ‘infinite button’ guides users through the connected world, aggregating all interactions with one person into one view; and intelligent face recognition features recognise up to five faces in any picture, automatically connecting them with users social phonebook and all other related communications with that person.
The handset also comes with an integrated 8.1 mega-pixel, auto-focus camera, featuring camcorder capability, a 4 inch WVGA touchscreen, A-GPS and 1Gb of internal memory with a 8Gb MicroSD card. All this is supported by a superfast 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
Francois Mahieu, director of devices, Orange UK said: “We’re really pleased to be working with Sony Ericsson to help bring their first Android device to UK customers. The exclusive white Xperia X10 allows users to make the most from their social relationships, whether over a call or online and is a great addition to our ever expanding range of Android devices.”
