A tour of Sony Ericsson's User Experience Platform

CNET took an in-depth tour of UXP with George Arriola, Sony Ericsson's head of human interface design, at the company's lab in San Francisco.

For its Xperia X10 smartphones, Sony Ericsson designed a new user interface from scratch. Called the User Experience Platform (or UXP), it sits on top of the Android OS for the Xperia X10 , X10 Mini, and X10 Mini Pro.

Last week, Nicole Lee and I took an in-depth tour of UXP with George Arriola, Sony Ericsson's head of human interface design, at the company's lab in San Francisco. On the whole, we liked what we saw. UXP is clean, easy to use, and attractive, and we like that it lets the basic Android framework shine through.

For the first few slides we'll show you how UXP looks on the X10 Mini Pro. Since the handset is much smaller than its X10 sibling, Sony Ericsson added some unique features that you won't find on the larger model. Check out our slideshow for your own tour.
