Hands-on with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (photos)
At CES in Las Vegas, CNET gets its first hands-on look at the Sony Xperia X10 Google Android phone.
You'll immediately notice the X10's stunning touch screen. With support for 65,536 colors and 854x480 pixels, everything from graphics to text to photos looks sharp.
In the standby screen you can activate Sony Ericsson's unique "Timescape" interface. Similar to Motoblur, Timescape displays your latest e-mails, text messages, and social media alerts in a flowing format that resembles a stacked deck of cards.
When scanning through your Timescape messages you can select individual alerts to highlight them. You then can pass to another display where you can see the history of all communication between you and that contact.
Though Timescape is attractive and user-friendly, it's part of the larger User Experience Platform that Sony Ericsson has laid over the Android OS. We're not so sure that masking Android is really necessary.
