As much as we all love Android, we can all agree that Android could use a better media player. Android's current media player has always been a little more utilitarian than anything and quickly showing its age. Thankfully, Sony Ericsson is looking to improve upon that in their upcoming Android phone, the 'Rachael' XPERIA X3. From the concept video above, they've made the media player look completely fresh and insanely drool-worthy, can we have it now?
The media player in the 'Rachael' UI looks a little bit like the Zune HD's (learn more at WMExperts) but still manages to come off as entirely its own. The 'Rachael's media player takes advantage of the large screen (480x854, same as the DROID) to offer an experience much more fluid than your regular boring lists of artists and albums. The page for artist's is an eye-catcher as well, with photos and cover art adding so much color to the page. Overall, it's seriously a huge upgrade to the stock Android media player and one that just might catapult it into a media powerhouse (better syncing software still needs to be included).
And don't forget, the Sony Ericsson 'Rachael' Android XPERIA X3 will be announced November 3rd. It can't come any sooner!
