Another Xperia X10 hands-on with full specs

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 s
SlashGear posted their hands-on impressions and video of Sony Ericisson’s Xperia X10 Android smartphone. The phone in the video is probably the same one we’ve seen earlier, so don’t expect anything really different (yes it’s still slow as hell, beta-software I guess).

Beyond the X10 – which SE describe as their flagship for 2010 – there’ll be a range of mid-tier smartphones based on both Symbian and Android, each sharing the (as yet unnamed) same user interface. According to the company, the UI is platform-agnostic – they’re even considering using it on future Windows Phones – and will eventually be positioned as distinct from the hardware, similar to how HTC Sense has been branded. Unfortunately there’ll be no retroactive deployment, so Satio buyers will have to make do with that smartphone’s existing UI. It’ll come as little consolation for those owners, but Sony Ericsson do expect to offer more consistent, long-term updates to their “smart” devices from now on; the X10, for instance, will eventually get an update to Android 2.0.

It’s too early to give a conclusive opinion on the XPERIA X10; while Sony Ericsson’s demo model proved reasonably capable in the core Android apps, the real test will be whether Timescape and Mediascape have the speed to back up their functionality. It’s worth remembering when you watch the demo video below that the X10 being shown is non-optimized; SE assure us that the final result will be far snappier. As we’ve seen with Motorola’s MOTOBLUR and HTC’s Sense, adding value to Android can definitely help define your smartphone from the rest of the crowd; while we have little doubt that Sony Ericsson will be able to get the hardware/software mix fettled in time, our prime concern is that the XPERIA X10 may not – like the X1 before it – make it to shelves before the pre-release hype has expired.

Also remember that the current rumor is that SE is no longer going to make Windows Mobile devices and only focus on Android & Symbian.
