BARCELONA, Spain--Though we came away from CES 2010 with loads of photos of the Google Android-powered Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Sony Ericsson was stingy about video in Las Vegas. Reps wouldn't let the phone out of their sight--and not that we believe this--because they said that the slick handset wasn't in its final form.
Luckily, the company wasn't so stringent at Mobile World Congress. And really, how could it be after unveilingnew Xperia X10 models? With CNET TV's Ariel Nunez I hit the Sony Ericsson booth the first morning of MWC and gave the device its screen time. It remains a gorgeous device with a stunning display, a slick interface, and a loaded feature set. I didn't test call quality, but I like what I see so far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the X10 makes it to U.S. shores.
