Sony Ericsson X8 – The Middle Man

The Sony Ericsson X8 sits in the middle of the Xperia family being a little smaller than the 4 inch X10, but bigger than the X10 Mini. With a similar spec line up and familiar looks, does it do its family proud?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro – A Mini Marvel!

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, fine phone though it is, didn’t exactly carve itself a niche in the market, as its 4″ screen, Android OS and Snapdragon processor could already be found on several other devices. However, when its siblings appeared a short while later, they were right there at the start of a revitalised phone genre. The Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro are those devices and they fit into the tiny phone category that Sony Ericsson have always done so well. We’ve looked at the X10 Mini before, so now it’s time to take a tour of the X10 […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini – Small, But Perfectly Formed

Before Ericsson joined forces with Sony, they were the company to go to if you wanted a compact mobile phone. The T28 is probably the best known of them all, an 80 gram mobile with a flip over the keypad, a two-line LCD display and a spec that wouldn’t do well today, but was great in 1999. The Xperia X10 could be seen as the antithesis of the T28, with its 4″ screen, lengthy feature list and 135 gram weight. However its sibling, the Xperia X10 Mini, just could be its modern day equivalent. Style. The X10 Mini measures an truly miniature 83 […]

Sony Ericsson Vivaz: Cue The Film

Ever since rumours and pictures of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz emerged, albeit under the Kurara nametag, everyone was hooked. Thankfully, Sony Ericsson only left us waiting a couple of months before the official announcement came. On January 21st the Sony Ericsson Vivaz was revealed to the world. By this time there was little in the press release that hadn’t already been discussed, realistically all that was left to do was to get some hands on action! The Sony Ericsson Vivaz represents a few firsts for the company, not only is it Sony Ericsson’s first multimedia handset release of 2010, but […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

The day has finally arrived as Sony Ericsson’s teaser website hinted it would, ending our long period of speculation – for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has been officially announced for release in early 2010.  The big day has clarified many points, firstly the issue of the name has been cleared up – the X3 has been dropped and Infinity is something else entirely – secondly, the rumoured specification list has turned out to be largely accurate.  Before we get into anything else, here are the standout points: The OS is Google Android 1.6, also known as Donut. Inside is […]

The Sony Ericsson X3

Remember the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2?  We’re sure you do, but just in case you need a refresher, it’s the follow-up to the X1 with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile.  The reason we ask is that in true Sony Ericsson style, we first saw the phone back in June and are still waiting for its release, a story very similar to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3. It was July when Rachael first came into our lives, and even then we knew she was something special.  Despite sitting next to her equally striking friend, Kiki, it was the promise […]

Sony Ericsson Aino

After dozens of rumours, and no end of speculation it’s pretty much common knowledge that within the next few months Sony Ericsson’s launching two multimedia phones. So we’ve already talked about the Satio, it’s time to meet the Aino. As with the Satio, the Sony Ericsson Aino combines two of Sony’s best features, gone are the days deciding between the cybershot and the walkman. The Aino provides the best of both worlds – an 8 megapixel camera, with everything you’d expect from a Sony Ericsson – autofocus, LED flash, geotagging, touch focus, face detection and so much more.  Naturally, it boasts the latest Walkman player, offering not […]
