Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 hands-on

MWC 2010 isn't our first encounter with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10; after all, we joined the company in London back in November 2009 for the official launch of the Android smartphone.  What it is, though, is a good chance to catch up with a very much more optimized build.  The XPERIA X10's debut was marred by jittery performance and sluggishness in the company's custom apps, Mediascape and Timescape, leaving us somewhat unconvinced about the handset.  Happily - and handily, since Sony Ericsson tell us the X10 is mere weeks from launch in the UK - the current build is far more impressive.

Biggest surprise about the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro?  Just how small the new Android smartphones are in the plastic.  We grabbed some hands-on time with both earlier today, and while they don't have the original X10's eye-catching 4-inch display they go some way to making up for it with extreme pocket-friendliness.  Check out the live photos and video demos after the cut.

Remember Robyn, the compact version of Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X10 that we saw recently?  Well, the company has made it - the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini - official, along with a QWERTY-toting sibling, the XPERIA X10 mini pro.  Both smartphones run Android 1.6, complete with Sony Ericsson's Timescape and Mediascape apps, together with a 2.55-inch QVGA touchscreen and 3G models with both 900/2100 HSPA and 850/1900/2100 HSPA variants.

Over at xda-developers they're pathologically addicted to getting software to run on devices it was never intended to, and fed up of waiting for Sony Ericsson's debut into the Android ecosystem, the XPERIA X10, they've focused instead on getting Android onto an earlier phone.  Normally the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is found playing nicely with Windows Mobile, but you can now dual-boot it with that and Android 2.0.1.

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

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 XPERIA X10 gets video playtime with HD2, Omnia II, iPhone 3GS

There's no real new technical data in this latest video of Sony Ericsson's unreleased XPERIA X10, but it does give us a chance to see the Android smartphone cavorting with HTC's HD2, Samsung's Omnia II and that perennial favorite, the iPhone 3GS.  Size-wise, if you thought the HD2 was too big then you should probably cancel your XPERIA X10 preorder, as the two look pretty darn similar; in fact, as the video after the cut shows, the X10 is actually a little chubbier than HTC's WinMo finest.
