Is Sony Ericsson's Android debut a Legend killer?

It is clear though that Sony Ericsson should stick to Android. The new UI is fantastic and if the Android 2.1 update can get on board soon, this is a phone well worth taking a long hard look at. For design fanatics, the choice between the Legend and...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 review

 

Finally with Android 2.1 - but is it too little, too late for the X10?

Great camera ; Nice media player ; Bundled 8GB card ; Slick OS ; Easy to backup vital data

Poor text input ; Lagging system ; Poor audio quality ; Suspect battery ; No multi-touch, no proper camera flash

UPDATE: We've now got our hands on a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 complete with the Android 2.1 update - lets see if it's any better or whether it's pushed SE further behind the Android pack.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Pocket-lint

 

Packed with the tech specs to make it look good on paper, unfortunately the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 doesn't measure against its lesser-specced rivals.

Camera, big screen is great for watching videos

Timescape and Mediascape could be much better, battery life is poor, touch response isn't good enough, keyboard isn't great, numerous bugs and freezes

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 then looks ill-fated. We've drawn out some of the flaws we found above, many of which could be changed with revised software. It perhaps suggests that the X10 is arriving to market before it is really ready to do so. Sloppy...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

So, is this going to be the one Android handset that you wish you waited for? At the moment it's too hard to say

3.5mm headphone jack, very PS3-like interface

Android 1.6, TimeScape looks like Vista Aero

So is this going to be the Android handset that you wish you waited for? At the moment it's too hard to say as the software wasn't (we hope) working at full speed. That said on the hardware front it really is just a screen with some buttons and every...

Sony Xperia SmartWatch

 

First Look: Is the Sony Xperia SmartWatch the first viable smart watch?

The most crucial thing, though, is that we were told the watch should last from four days to a week between charges, making it genuinely practical. Set to cost $149 (no UK price yet) it could well be the perfect accessory for Xperia handset owners.

A decent camera, but the customised interface isn't as snappy as other Snapdragon phones, and you're paying a premium for the luxury build quality
