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. With handsets like the Nexus One already on the market, is there still a place for the XPERIA X10? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Desire Unboxing [Video]

While the HTC Legend was a shiny, unibody wonder, the undoubtable star of Mobile World Congress last month was the HTC Desire.

Who are we to turn down a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 5-megapixel camera? Check out the unboxing, plus a first-look comparison with the Nexus One, after the cut.

Fuzzy Nexus One AMOLED running at just 392×653?

Fuzzy Nexus One AMOLED running at just 392×653?

When is WVGA not WVGA?  When it's the display resolution of the Google Nexus One, apparently.  For anyone who has wondered why text and sharp-edged graphics on their Google smartphone look unduly fuzzy, the answer might be in the AMOLED display technology.  According to Luke Hutchison (and his trusty magnifier), the PenTile tech used in the panel results in less than the number of true RGB pixels you'd expect from what's billed as an 480 x 800 display.  Instead, he thinks Nexus One owners are getting more like 392 x 653.

Google Nexus One Heading to Sprint

If you'll recall, the Google Nexus One launched back in January with T-Mobile USA exclusivity. It's just been made available with the appropriate 3G bands to rock on AT&T's 3G network (along with Rogers, up in Canada), and we just got word that the Google Phone, manufactured by HTC, is now officially coming to the Sprint Network.

New Nexus One gets AT&T and Rogers 3G/UMTS

New Nexus One gets AT&T and Rogers 3G/UMTS

In what we're guessing is a mildly-tactical move to counter claims of poor sales performance to-date, Google have added a second GSM Nexus One to their line up with support for AT&T and Rogers Wireless 3G/UMTS.  The new handset supports the 850/1900/2100 MHz bands, rather than the T-Mobile-friendly 900/AWS/2100MHz bands of the original, and is priced at the same $529.

“Sales failure” Nexus One shifts just 135k in 74 days?

Google's Nexus One has been something of a hit here at SlashGear - check out Ewdi's editorial on why he gave up his iPhone 3GS for the Android 2.1 smartphone - but ongoing sales analytics seem to suggest that the handset's appeal hasn't been felt by the public at large.  According to Flurry - who initially told us that Google had sold 20k Nexus One devices in the first week of sales - only 135,000 have been sold in the 74 days since the Nexus One launched.
