Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro hands-on

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro hands-on

Sony Ericsson's Vivaz pro potentially has a tough sell on its hands: its XPERIA siblings, like the X10 and the new X10 mini and X10 mini pro, have an arguably more eye-catching OS in Android, and a more impressive UI in the form of Timescape and Mediascape.  In contrast, the Vivaz and Vivaz pro both get S60, albeit with a little of Sony Ericsson's own tweaking.  Hands-on, both devices feel lighter than they look, though on the downside we weren't entirely convinced by the quality of the plastics.

Canada’s Rogers claim Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 for Q2 2010 North America debut

Canadian carrier Rogers Wireless has become the first to announce it will be offering the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, though neither carrier nor company are yet saying exactly when the Android smartphone will arrive.  Set to go on sale sometime in Q2 2010 - later than Sony Ericsson told us back at the handset's launch - the XPERIA X10 will be a Rogers exclusive in the country, and will apparently "make its North American debut first in Canada".

Sony Ericsson Kurara packs PowerVR and Cortex A8

Sony Ericsson Kurara packs PowerVR and Cortex A8

Sony Ericsson's as-yet unannounced Kurara touchscreen smartphone has stayed still for long enough to get a non-blurry photo, and as you might have guessed it's mobile-review's Eldar Murtazin responsible for the shot.  The Kurara was originally described as a more entry-level version of the Sony Ericsson Satio, but according to Mutazin there's actually a whole lot more to it than that: squeezed inside is an ARM Cortex A8 CPU complete with PowerVR GPU.

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

We may be giving Sony Ericsson a darn good scolding on the one hand for their XPERIA X10 hijinks, but we're a little more interested by their new WebSDK for Android and Symbian Foundation devices.  The Sony Ericsson WebSDK promises a metaphorical hand-holding for developers hoping to have their wares nestle up against the company's own apps, whether that be on the XPERIA X10 or the SE Satio.  It's called Nexus, seemingly the official title for the UX platform Sony Ericsson were talking about with regards the X10.
