Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

While we await the eventual appearance of the Android-powered Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (and some people are less hopeful than others), Canadian carrier Rogers has said it will launch the X10 in the second quarter, making it the first North American carrier to do so.

"At Rogers, we have built our legacy on innovation, bringing the most exciting and exclusive handsets first to customers in Canada," said John Boynton, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Rogers Communications. "We are thrilled to be the exclusive Canadian carrier to offer this phenomenal mobile entertainment device."

Quick refresher on the X10: We're looking at a 4-inch touchscreen at 480x854 (same as the Moto Droid), a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of ROM/256MB RAM, 8MP camera, 1500mAh battery and all the usual trimmings. We're still waiting on word of an actual U.S. launch and any carrier support. [Twitter via Gadgetorama]

Rogers says Xperia X10 coming in Q2


I thought I would be sweet on the Nexus-One but I like the X10 more. That despite running 1.6. At least it provides something different in the interface. And it's the first Android phone to offer 1GB of ROM (don't see why Nexus-One doesn't have that). Hopefully T-Mobile will offer it, although it might cost me "one of these and one of these. An arm and a leg" since I'm not on contract.

Yeah come to me baby! Robbers finally gets a phone that should hopefully move them away from an iphone centric consumer model.
