Between 2008 and 2010 was a difficult time for Sony. In the fall of 2008 is the first Windows Mobile device, the Xperia X1. A year later, it is the first Symbian UIQ phone was off, and the Idou. For a year, and the Xperia brand, has undergone a mind swap, and it is a series of Android-powered devices.

The first of these was the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. It made its debut on April 1, 2010, is the launch on the NTT DoCoMo network, and it became the fastest-selling smartphone in the cradle of the history of reports from the time indicate that the X-10, sold 120,000 units in three weeks, beating even the iPhone 3GS (32GB). The shops were sold, and Sony Ericsson are rushing to ship more units, we could have a big (in Japan, anyway).

The phone will be dumped on the ground the motives of the original Xperia, if you want the slide-out keyboard. Instead, the design drew its inspiration from the Java, SE is the second Symbian S60 mobile phones.

The Idou and the Nokia had camera-focused phones for the first time was a part of a 12MP camera phone, the elite, and the last one was one of the first to record 720p video. The sony Xperia X10 is a step backwards, and the resolution of a 8MP camera with a resolution of 480p video recording.

However, that would later be bumped up to 720p and 30 fps, with an update to the How to came up to 720p @ 24fps). This update is also turned on DLNA.

The camera interface

The phone actually had a good life, as far as updates are concerned. It came with Android 1.6 Donut from the box, then it was up to 2.1 Eclair, and that’s as far as it was supposed to go. But then the company changed the back of his head and pushed him all the way to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s her sweet time to do it, though.

The Xperia X10 was powered by the original core Qualcomm Snapdragon single-core Each running at 1.0 GHz. It was a pretty powerful platform, and the beginning of 2010, even though the phone is low on memory.

It came with only 384MB of RAM, and even worse, with 1GB of storage (only about half of that is available to the user). By way of comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S was launched around the same time, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage (with a 16GB option. Yes, the phone had a microSD slot, but so did most of the telephones of the past.

The company has not learned the lesson and tried to base the 2011 models of the Xperia arc, neo and ray is more or less the same hardware (512MB of RAM, and a lowly 320 MB user-available storage). Also keep in mind that, in 2011, it was the first dual-core central processing units (Cpu’s when they arrive at the cell phone. But that’s a story for another time.

Go back to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, it had a 4.0” screen with 480 x 854px resolution, and it was pretty big for me. And while it was initially only display 65K colors, (a reduction of 1.6 Donut), it seemed to be with 16 colors after it has been updated to 2.1 Eclair. However, the multi-touch does not work, the hardware doesn’t support it (and to be fair, even the early Android versions).

The Android interface has been updated with two major additions, the Timescape and the Mediascape. The two had a brief look at the PlayStation 3’s interface for inspiration, even though they don’t have a 1:1 copy of the XrossMediaBar.

Timescape is combined with your call log, SMS, MMS, e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter updates into a single stream, will be presented with a deck of cards fly through the 3D space. The tabs can be used to filter the stream to view only the TEXT of the messages, for example. If you thought it was good enough, and you’re able to set up Timescape is your home screen.

The Timescape in action

Mediascape is just for the gallery app, share music, videos, and photos tabs across the top. To the left of the 3D cards in favor of a more “traditional ” list of files” approach. It wasn’t the best at his job, but it is the Infinite button, it’s kind of interesting. It is automatically related to the content, e.g., all the photos were taken on the same day, or listening to music on YouTube, depending on the file type you were looking at.

Mediascape

In the end, we praised the Xperia X10 has a fast processor, gorgeous screen, and the camera is capable of, but as the Timescape and Mediascape are well appointed, and the telephone have had an impact on the other Android flagships on the OS updates.

It wasn’t smooth sailing all the way, but overall, the X10 has been very successful due to the fact that it was the first of it’s kind. The Xperia arc s would be replaced at the beginning of 2011, which was even more of a burden). At that point, the writing was on the wall – Sony-Ericsson partnership was falling apart and would soon be Sony-only.

In the beginning of 2012 brought with it the first and only Sony, and while that turned out to be a tighter focus, and boasted more registered trademarks of Sony that the X10 is usually missing), is the first in the line-up couldn’t match up to the golden days of Sony Ericsson.

At the very least, the President and chief executive officer of Sony Ericsson, Bert Nordberg, was in the right, Android is better than WP7. He called the Android “one of the best choice that we have made and told him that his company and “should have taken the iPhone more seriously when it arrived in 2007”.
