Running on Android 1.6 (seriously), Sony has incorporated two signature applications for enhanced social networking. First up is Mediascape, which organizes media content (music, photos, etc.) into one streamlined location, and it also connects to Facebook and Picasa photo albums. Second is Timescape, which essentially does the same thing as Mediascape except with social networking accounts. Thus, your Twitter account can align with your Facebook news feed.
Hopefully it will also get that promised upgrade to Android 2.2 later this year too. But there are a number of top-notch specs on the Xperia 10, and here's a glance:
4-inch touchscreen display
1GHz Snapdragon processor
8GB of onboard memory
2GB memory card (expandable up to 32GB)
8.1-megapixel AF camera with LED flash, smile and face detection
The Xperia X10 is up for pre-order now for $149.99 with the signing of a two-year contract. Expect the Sony smartphone to ship with the new service provider on August 15.
