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 Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

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.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 February launch date yanked

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 February launch date yanked

Having tracked Sony Ericsson for years now, it comes as little surprise to see that, after plenty of happy noises about the apparently confirmed February 2010 release of the XPERIA X10, the company's online store has now whipped away the date details.  The "coming soon" page now merely says "to be announced" and reiterates the Q1 2010 window, which is all Sony Ericsson would tell us officially when the XPERIA X10 was announced a few weeks back.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 video demo: ah, there’s the Snapdragon speed

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 video demo: ah, there’s the Snapdragon speed

Sony Ericsson's launch event for the XPERIA X10, their first Android smartphone, was slightly undermined by the fact that their single demo prototype proved to be not exactly the Snapdragon speed-demon we all expected.  The company's homegrown Timescape and Mediascape apps ran like molasses in a permafrost, which Sony Ericsson told us was due to them not having been optimized for the hardware.  Happily HDblog have had access to a newer prototype, and theirs looks positively snappy.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 coming Feb 2010 says official store

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 coming Feb 2010 says official store

Sony Ericsson weren't, to be fair, being all that coy about their launch plans for the XPERIA X10 Android smartphone back at its launch a few weeks ago: asked when it was likely the touchscreen Snapdragon handset would arrive within its "Q1 2010" window, the SE exec told us "it's not going to be the beginning or the end of the quarter".  We presumed a February release, then, likely around or about Mobile World Congress, and sure enough Sony Ericsson's own online store are suggesting a February arrival for the X10.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 gets official: Hands-on Video Demo

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 gets official: Hands-on Video Demo

Sony Ericsson have finally come clean on their latest smartphone, and as expected it's an Android flagship. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 - previously known as the Rachael and the X3 - is a Snapdragon-based touchscreen candybar, with a huge display, 8.1-megapixel camera and some "special sauce" in the shape of two homegrown applications - for communication aggregation and media aggregation - with a custom UI. SlashGear caught up with Sony Ericsson in London yesterday to take a look at the new smartphone, and find out why the company reckons this is the launch not only of the Android X10 but of a new "user experience platform".

Sony Ericsson Rachael mediascape UI gets leaked video demo

Sony Ericsson Rachael mediascape UI gets leaked video demo

If our assumptions are correct, this coming week should see Sony Ericsson officially unveil their first Android smartphone, the handset variously known as the Sony Ericsson Rachael (or Rachel), XPERIA X3 and X10 and - most recently - the Sony Ericsson Infinity.  We've already seen a video demo of what Sony Ericsson's custom UI might look like (and darned pretty it is too) but now a second demo has emerged and gadzooks it has us interested.
