Telstra unleashes another Android

 

May the fourth be with you.

Telstra will launch its second Android-powered mobile phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, on May 4, 2010.

The telco announced in February that it will also be offering the Android-based-HTC Desire, which is due to arrive at your nearest T[Life] store before the end of this month.

The Sony Ericsson X10 has a four-inch touch-screen display, an 8.1 megapixel camera and is compatible with Microsoft Exchange. It packs a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor.

The phone provides easy access to Telstra's service widgets and as with most modern smartphones, a whole heap of applications are just a finger-swipe away.

One feature being touted on all Android-based phones - including Motorola's MotoBLUR, which is exclusively available on rival Telco Optus' network - is the consolidation of social media services.

The X10 uses tools called TimeScape and MediaScape to combine updates from social networking sites and allow users to change their status or send a tweet. They also provide links from songs stored on your phone with content on sites like YouTube and allow users to purchase songs from Telstra's BigPond Music service.
