Sony Ericsson Xperia X10The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, the company’s first Android phone, was recently launched in Australia after much anticipation. Powered by Android 1.6 Donut, the handset features a large 4-inch OLED display, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 8.1 megapixel camera and 8 GB of storage on the included microSD card. Going by these features, the phone has the potential to be a hit. Only time will tell whether it will have an impact on the iPhone dominated Australian smartphone market.

Current competitors to the Xperia X10 include the iPhone 3GS, Motorola Backflip, Nokia N97, HTC Magic and the recently launched HTC Desire, currently exclusive to Telstra for another couple of months before the other carriers can start offering it.

The Xperia X10 carries an Australian recommended retail price of AU$1,099 but most buyers will acquire the phone on a contract through one of the major carriers that all currently offer subsidised plans for the phone.
