Dual-core Samsung Galaxy 2 i9100 and Sony Ericsson ANZU get field feedback

Some people walk the dog, drink coffee and read the paper at the weekend; others, like mobile-review's Eldar Murtazin, spend their time playing with early examples of pre-release smartphones. According to the notorious tipster, he's spent at least part of the weekend with the Sony Ericsson ANZU and the Samsung Galaxy 2 GT-i9100, the latter of which packs a potent dual-core processor.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8, Cedar & Yendo with Walkman get official; Android 2.1 for XPERIA in Q3

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8, Cedar & Yendo with Walkman get official; Android 2.1 for XPERIA in Q3

Sony Ericsson has officially announced its new XPERIA X8 smartphone, a 3-inch Android handset slotting in-between the current X10 and X10 mini models, together with the Sony Ericsson Yendo with Walkman handset, using the same XPERIA UI, and a new "Greenheart" phone, the Sony Ericsson Cedar, which the company reckons is more earth-friendly than other devices.  Of interest to existing XPERIA X10, X10 mini and X10 mini pro owners is the news that Sony Ericsson plan to offer an Android 2.1 upgrade "from Q3 onwards in selected markets" and that the X10 will get additional features in Q4 too.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Android 2.1 update promised for Q4 2010

Sony Ericsson have confirmed that their XPERIA X10 - together with the XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro - will all get an update to Android 2.1, though owners will have to wait until Q4 2010 before they see it.  The new firmware - which is being billed as an upgrade to UXP or Sony Ericsson's "User Experience Platform" - will also bring with it HD video recording, as on the Vivaz, for the X10, together with other media-centric tweaks.

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.

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 XPERIA X10 to be company’s first Android smartphone?

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 to be company’s first Android smartphone?

It seems we could have been calling Sony Ericsson's first Android smartphone by the wrong name, at least according to a Tweakers forum member.  That individual, who claims to have not only talked to Sony Ericsson staff about the device but to have played with a prototype, says that rather than the XPERIA X3, the handset will most likely be branded as the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10.  They've also let slip some details about a possible launch window.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 hits US November 28th for $800

Sony Ericsson have finally confirmed the US launch date for their XPERIA X1 smartphone.  The Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro device - which has both a WVGA touchscreen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard - is available for preorder from today, with delivery and in-store sales beginning November 28th.  As for the price, unsubsidized the SE XPERIA X1 will cost $799.99.  That gets you quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (850/1900/2100MHz) which, you might have noticed, does not include T-Mobile USA's commonly-used 1700MHz band.

Technology conventions aren’t dying – they’re evolving

Technology conventions aren’t dying – they’re evolving

If this year's Mobile World Congress taught us one thing, it's that no matter how interesting and innovative the gadget makers and software developers of our global community are, it's the top brands that end up making or breaking the show. Make or break the show for the press, that is. Case in point: our several articles written from our chat with Google's Mathias Duarte - they ended up easily becoming some of the most popular posts we had this week, and Google didn't reveal any new products at the convention. In fact, they didn't have a stand - the chat we had wasn't even on the map. And yet, there it is - Google stole the show anyway.
