Countdown over, AT&T and Sony Ericsson introduce the Xperia X10 to the U.S.

Countdown over, AT&T and Sony Ericsson introduce the Xperia X10 to the U.S.
After having been launched overseas several months ago, the Xperia X10 has finally been introduced in the U.S. Sony Ericsson and AT&T have announced that the joint venture's first Android handset will be available from the carrier starting August 15th at a price of $149.99. with a signed 2 year contract and a minimum smartphone data plan. Paul Hamnett, Senior VP at Sony Ericsson North America said, "Sony Ericsson is raising the bar for entertainment-rich phones with the launch of the Xperia ™ X10. With the convergence of our user experience platform and the Android OS, we are bringing consumers a smartphone experience that is not only exciting, but also very refined. Following the successful global launch of the Xperia X10, we are pleased to partner with AT&T to launch this phone in the U.S. market."

The X10 offers a 4 inch display and is powered with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood.  The 8.1 MP camera is equipped with both face recognition and smile detection, and offers AF and a LED flash. 1GB of internal memory is boosted with a 2GB card in the box, and can be expanded up to 32GB. Of course, the Xperia X10 has the Timescape and Mediascape applications. The former will focus on your social networks while the latter will integrate your music and videos to one place. The press release fails to mention which build of the Android OS the X10 will carry, but earlier speculation was that the phone would launch with Android 1.6 and receive an upgrade to 2.1 by the end of the year. Unfortunately for all of you pinch-to-zoom fans out there, the handset does not support multi-touch.

Considering how long this phone has been out it should have been updated to at least 2.1 to be competitive to whats out there... 1.6? come on now SE that's embarassing.... Also SE should have pushed to release this phone ALOT sooner cause there are much better devices out now that just overshadow this..

since when is Canada overseas to the U.S.? Canada has had the phone for three months, and you don't need sea legs to visit.

Well I like this phone but the only downside it's that it's on AT&T also does anyone know if this phone will have a front facing camera?

Hi, Corrections..... 1) This phone comes with 1gb Internal Memory 2) may ship with 2gb memory card. 3) Offical memory card support is 16gb. 4) No front facing camera But, this is ONE OF THE BEST Phones & the first with a 4" wide screen & an awesome 8.1Megapixel camera. TimeScape & MediaScape are awesome. I am a happy user for past 2-months. ( well, I bought Xperia X10i on ebay for 550 bucks in May'10 ) This is a Must-have phone. After the 2.1 n UXP upgrade due in sept/oct, this phone will have HD video recording capability with its 8.1megapixel camera which is awesome. Way better than Iphone4. I can easily read books using Kindle reader android app on its huge 4" screen. Im LOVING my X10. I call it SE-X10.
