It looks like the prayers of T-Mobile fanboys might have been answered. Sony Ericsson officially unveiled the Xperia X10 on their website and check out which 3G bands it supports.
Yup, this phone supports WCDMA/UMTS 1700/2100. For the non tech geeks, that means T-Mobile 3G. It also does UMTS 850/1900 which is AT&T 3G.
Some might be worried because the first Xperia X1 also featured T-Mobile 3G bands, but it was never actually released by the carrier. Don’t fret, because one of our ninjas told us that Sony Ericsson is planning a big event soon in New York. Why would Sony Ericsson make an appearance in the United States to tout their new Android phone, unless they already have a carrier deal(s) worked out. This is more than a coincidence.
This phone packs some serious power including:
- 1 GHz Snapdragon QSD8250 platform
- 4 inch capacitive display 480 x 854 pixels WVGA
- 8.1 megapixel camera with LED flash – up to 16x digital zoom
- Up to 1 GB ROM (need to confirm this) / No word on RAM
- Ships with 8 GB micro SD (could vary by carrier)
- 1,500 mAh battery
- GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi
- 3.5 mm audio jack
The Xperia X10 will also feature some interesting software features like:
- Sony Ericsson Timescape – Manages all your communications with one person in one place. Browse through your conversations the bright way to check out your Facebook, Twitter, photos, emails, and text all in one go.
- Sony Ericsson Mediascape – Is the smart way to get all your photos, music, and video you want from your favorite friends and artists. It accesses content from everywhere (your phone, YouTube, PlayNow) and presents everything for you.
According to the press documents, the Xperia X10 will be available in select markets starting Q1 2010. Unfortunately the device was built for Android 1.6, but maybe Sony Ericsson can figure out Android 2.0 before the launch date.
I just found one more video of the game Speed Forge 3D running on the Xperia X10. If you have tried this game on a G1, you can see how much faster it starts up.
