XPERIA X10 Review

XPERIA X10 Review

If it feels like it's a long time since we first saw the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, that's because it really has been. First announced back in November 2009, and only now approaching the market, the X10 runs the risk - like other Sony Ericsson smartphones, it has to be said - of making promises that prove underwhelming by the time it delivers on them.
