Latest UK news on the Apple iPhone, iPod, iTouch and iMac.
In the latest war between mobile phone makers, Sony Ericsson has announced that it is going to go all out with its latest release, the Sony Ericsson X10, a beast of a phone that is loaded with all kinds of features that consumers, especially among the heavily tech savvy, have been craving for quite some time now. It does appear that the electronics giant will be trouncing competition with this model that offers, among other things, the use of Google’s Android operating system. The new OS will certainly improve on what Google has learned by studying Apple’s OS for the iPhone and Google intends to do its best to give the kind of OS that will allow it to compete for a share of the mobile phone OS market the way it has in the search engine industry. All signs point to this offering a key level of competitiveness for the X10.
While rarely backing down from a challenge, Sony surprised analysts by having an 8.1 mega pixel camera built into their latest phone, a real leap forward from the 5 mega pixel expectations that are more or less standard at this time. That leads to a range of usability that is far higher than is commonly had in most mobile phones today. This is definitely a big plus in the growing web 2.0 sphere where users are exchanging photos in ever increasing numbers and demanding better technology with which to capture the images of their lives. Sony is certainly set to hit a home run, if not a grand slam, with their latest offering.
