    Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Hits U.S.

    The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 that was first released in the UK back in March has finally made its way to the U.S. The company’s flagship Android smartphone is available on the AT&T network and is stil running Android version 1.6, apparently because Sony Ericsson has been having trouble modding its add ons to suit Android 2.1.

    The X10’s 4-inch touch display is gorgeous, and processing power is engined by a quick 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The phone comes with aGPS along with an 8.1 megapixel camera that boasts smile detection, face recognition, autofocus and LED flash. It also comes with a 2GB microSD memory card on top of the phone’s 1GB onboard memory, but will accept microSD cards up to 32GB.

    Staking the phone’s claim as an entertainment and communications device are two signature applications: Mediascape and Timescape. Mediascape gathers music, photos, videos and content from the phone’s memory card and online, letting users browse, search and listen and share media from one unified view, while Timescape is a communication application that automatically organizes social interactions from sources such as Facebook, Twitter, emails and text messages in chronological order. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is available through AT&T for $149 on a two-year plan.
