Xperia X10 Rooted For Real This Time!

This article mentions rooting and flashing of non-stock ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

Owners of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 have a pretty good reason to be upset. While recent phones like the myTouch Slide and EVO were rooted within days of their release, the Xperia X10 has been available for months without root, and is stuck on Android 1.6 running a custom skin.

no multitouch on xperia x10 mini

You know the drama with the XPERIA X10 multitouch support? The one where it was supposedly possible, then not, then possible again, then refuted for good?

X10 Mini/Mini Pro Multitouch

Well, the recently announced little brothers of the X10 - the Mini and the Mini Pro, will not be getting multitouch either, as confirmed by the official Sony Ericsson blog.

Single handed operation seems to be the theme throughout their whole post, insisting that even though the users clearly want multitouch, the devices are better without it (who are the users to dictate what's better, eh?):

I noted some of your comments asking for the multi touch support.

Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-X10_150

As the title states, it has just come to light that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will not be getting multitouch as was previously mentioned. In fact at first it was stated it would not be getting multitouch, then it was and now, yet again, it is not and that is the final word on it.

It seems that some companies are really having trouble relaying information these days.

Final Word On Multitouch

Sony Ericsson's Communications Manager Harold de Kort gives the final word about multitouch and the Xperia X10:

Multi-touch will not be a feature in future updates for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 because the device does not support multi-touch due to her software and hardware configuration.

XPERIA X10 AT&T

A supposedly trusted source told Engadget that Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X10 Android phone, which already got released in Canada on April 15th, would be coming to America under AT&T's wing this July or August.

The device, which is currently running Android 1.6, has a 4" screen, an 8MP camera, a beefy 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and Sony's own "Rachael" UI.

AT&T has the worst track record for crippling the only Android device that dared enter its network so far - the Motorola Backflip, most likely due to pressure from Apple.

Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson, a well known mobile arm of the Japanese company Sony Corp and Swedish Ericsson, posted its first profit in years, following a cost-cutting measure and introduction of new phones to the market, including the XPERIA X10 - its first Android based device.

Profits for Q1 2010 were EUR21 mil, compared to a loss of EUR293 mil a year ago.

In mid-2008, Sony Ericsson started a transformation program with the aim of reducing annual operating expenses by EUR880 mil.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10
Last Updated: July 24th, 2011

Today the Slashgear team got their grabby (and lucky) hands on Sony's first crack at an Android phone implementation - XPERIA X10 which was announced a whopping 5 months ago on November 3rd, 2009.

They go into a relatively in-depth discussion of the pluses and minuses of Sony's new child which I will summarize in a few bullet points for the busy crowd.

The Awesome Bullet Points

  • 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU (same as Nexus One and HTC desire)
  • the 4" 480x854 TFT screen is beautiful
  • 1GB internal storage
  • 384MB RAM
  • 8GB MicroSD card but only upgradeable to 16GB
  • Support for AT&T but not T-Mobile in the US
  • WiFi b/g, bluetooth, aGPS - all standard stuff
  • Android 1.6 - X10 comes with Sony's own flavor of Android called Rachael, which has a relatively radically different user interface compared to vanilla Android

    Of course, we all know HTC's take on Android resulted in Sense, which ended up causing months of delays and preventing users from upgrading their operating systems to Android's latest revisions (just think of the Hero that skipped 1.6, 2.0, and still doesn't have 2.1, though it's promised soon).
