Since the past two years, Sony Ericsson has lost most of its market shares due to poor administration, and not up to the mark handsets. After facing huge loses, the company has finally woken up and has been coming out with quality handsets since the past two months.

After the moderate success of Satio and Aino, Sony Ericsson will be launching so far one of the best mobile on paper, the Xperia X10. The phone is expected to launch in late January or early February 2010.

The Xperia X10 will be Sony Ericsson’s first Android handset. The phone will be sporting Android 1.6 (Donut) OS at release. Well, that is something which is annoying because Android 2.0 (Eclair) is already out and Motorola Droid is running on it. But Sony Ericsson’s excuse for it is that they have been customizing Android 1.6 since a long time and now Android 2.0 has released, so if they drop Android 1.6 and start customizing Android 2.0 then the phone’s launch will be delayed further.

    Yes! finally a sexy and cool Android phone. About time anyone added some cool design to the andriod phones.

    This one will sell I think. Looking at the youtube vids it is really responsive too.

    It faces some stiff competition but I think SE is doing the right thing to compete in the android market.
