Sony Ericsson announced its foray into Android in the early hours of the morning when it showed off the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10. Packing “Rachael” – officially known as UX for “User Experience” – the phone is a spec sheet beast! On paper, it’s a contender for best handset running Android or any other OS, but we won’t know that for sure until the device is finalized and played with by the public. Read the announcement post for a list of specifications and explanation of what XPERIA X10 offers. Then take a look at the videos and photos below that make this phone one to watch
