Unboxing the AT&T Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

After five months of floating around in the UK, the Android-powered Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will finally be hitting US shores in just two days. We had the opportunity to meet up with some of the folks from Sony Ericsson to nab a unit fresh off the production line early this morning. Of course, we couldn’t open up a shiny new toy without giving it the customary photoshoot — so join us after the jump for all of your gadget-porn needs (and in just a few hours for our hands-on impressions, and about a week from now for our full review.)

The unit seems to be just about identical to the European edition, save for the AT&T logo strapped on the back. And to answer those burning questions I’m sure you’ve got: It’s running Android 1.6 (though they’re expecting an update to 2.1 to be complete sometime within the next few months) and, like the rest of AT&T’s Android phones, won’t let you install any third-party application that don’t come from the Android Market.
