    Hands-On With The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY At E3 2011

    Did you hear? I’m a fan of the Xperia Play. Watch the video above and I say it about a billion times. Thanks to the flights to and from E3 (and several boring bar nights at the event), I’ve put in lots of time with the Android gaming device and have fallen in love. My little E3 meeting calmed my fears of device abandonment as it seems SE is ready to support the Play with a… Read More

  • The New Xperia Play Commercial Is Cute (Video)

    There’s just something about Kristen Schaal’s quirkiness I find cute. They got her to compare gaming on the Xperia Play to the iPhone in a sort of Apple-esque manner (solid colored background, three point lighting, two people standing on screen comparing something). Either way, the Xperia offers some pretty good gameplay. Check it out after the break. Read More

  • A Long Hands-On With The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

    I’m totally down with Sony Ericsson trying almost anything to stay relevant in non-niche markets, so the Xperia Arc looks actually exciting and/or good. Sadly, as handsome as it is I doubt there are many who who really want to watch an eleven minute video describing every nuance. However, if you’re that kind of guy, here you are. Read More

  • Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 clears for landing at AT&T

    When the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 was announced in November, my major concern was whether it was coming to the U.S., when it was coming and if it would be subsidized by a carrier. The good news is that it looks like the X10 will be hitting AT&T’s shores this Spring. Read More

  • Sony Ericsson keeps 'em coming with Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro

    More Android handsets are on the way from Sony Ericsson as the handset manufacturer just announced smaller versions of the Xperia X10: the X10 mini and X10 mini pro. Clever names, right? These handsets are quite sexy, if I say so myself, and the pro version has the nice addition of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Like the bigger X10, these feature SE’s custom UX platform over Android… Read More

  • Buongiorno, vi presento un video del Sony Ericsson Experia X10

    Long-suffering handset maker Sony Ericsson is all about the UX, people, and they’ve got the screens to prove it. The new system does basically what everyone else is doing and it brings all of your friend’s content into something called TimeScape (there’s another one for media called Media Scape.) Their new UX UI looks pretty amazing – you basically drag cards all over… Read More

  • It's coming: WinMo update 6.5 shows up for the XPERIA X1

    Windows mobile has had a hard time of it of late, what with the Blackberry and iPhone being so popular. And frankly, the current version of the mobile OS, sucks. There’s good news on the horizon however, because the latest release version 6.5 is coming. Read More

  • Video: Sony Xperia Panels interface on an HTC Touch Diamond

    A group of tinkers have been hard at work getting the Panels interface from the Sony Xperia working on the HTC Touch HD. Progress is being made at a decent rate, as evidenced by a few YouTube videos that have been released. Why do such a thing? Well, as one of the guys says, “I like the look of this front end alot better than the TF3D.” So, rather than complain about the user… Read More

  • XPeria X1: "The ultimate Windows Mobile phone anyone can ask for…"

    Head over to MobiltyToday as they examine, in gory detail, what they’re calling “The ultimate Windows Mobile phone anyone can ask for… ” My only question is this: what if I never asked for a WinMo phone from Sony Ericsson? What if I asked for the charm and power of a UIQ-powered P800, my first and favorite smartphone? What if asked for a logical addition to the S-E… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to hit U.S. shelves on Black Friday for.. wait, how much?!

    At long last, Sony Ericsson has announced U.S availability of the Xperia X1. Because it’s definitely the best day to send people to the mall, they’ll be launching the handset on Black Friday (November 28th). With a Black Friday launch date, at least it’ll come in at a bargain price, right? Try $800 bucks. As of right now, the X1 is only planned to be up for sale as an… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to Best Buy on December 7th for $799, unlocked?

    It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 might almost be here. BGR has some shots of Best Buy’s internal stock showing a December 7th in-stock date and an unlocked selling price of $799. That’s a lot of coin, so we can only assume that it’ll be the greatest phone in the history of cellular telephony, right? Read More

  • Sony Ericsson XPERIA concept: Oh man, please don't be real.

    Just a few days ago, the above shot of a supposed XPERIA concept device started floating around. Though its authenticity can’t be confirmed, we certainly hope it’s fake – or, at most, a concept never intended to leave the labs. Besides being a damned nice looking piece of hardware, much of the XPERIA X1‘s appeal stems from its full, landscape QWERTY keyboard. In… Read More

  • Unboxing: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 stripped of its cardboard coverings

    Now that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 has stormed European shores, eager owners are rushing to share the unboxing process with the rest of the world. The best we’ve spotted so far is that of Sweden’s Fosfor magazine – for the most part, the rest of them have been “Here’s the box.. HERE’S THE PHONE!”, skipping the oh-so-crucial step-by-step… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

    Anytime there is discussion about Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1, you can almost guarantee that someone will chime in with “Yeah, too bad it’s running Windows Mobile.” While there isn’t much hope at this point for anyone dying for an X1 powered by anything but Microsoft’s platform, that might not be the case for future Xperia handsets. According to Magnus… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 slated for September 30 launch

    But not for the US. We’ll have to wait another few months before they make a similar announcement. To showcase all the gloriousness that is the X1, SE will be streaming a live webcast for all to watch on the 15th. The webcast will consist of an in-depth hands-on demo and the world premiere of Johnny X. What the crapcakes is Johnny X? Read More

  • Say It Ain’t So: XPERIA X1 keyboard is a ‘major flaw’

    Oh, that’s unfortunate. I’ve been eyeing this device since it was announced and have always thought the keyboard looked phenomenal. BGR is reporting, however, that the keyboard on the XPERIA X1 device is a “major flaw” – that’d definitely be a deal-breaker for more than a few people, myself included. Not to say that this keyboard is absolutely terrible… Read More

  • BengalBoy is back with the SEX1

    WARNING: Do not ingest self-tanner. I haven’t seen a BengalBoy post in almost a year and for a minute I had all but forgotten about our soft-core brother from another Best Buy who gets brand new, unreleased phones and then makes strange women hold them in bikinis. Lucky for us, BB got himself the Sony Ericsson X1, the phone we call “Lipstick on a Pig” for it’s melding… Read More

  • Sony video leaks Xperia-branded phones?

    This video has been making the rounds that shows something similar to the S-E X1 along with another unnamed device that seems to be able to all sorts of good things including live chat a la iChat. While I’m down on the Xperia line so far — the X1 was a gimmick as egregious as the original HTC Touch — I’m willing to give S-E the benefit of the doubt and hope to god… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 available for pre-order, rumors hint at mid-September launch

    If you’ve got almost a thousand bucks burning a hole in your pocket and you want to get a head start on ordering up that Xperia X1 by Sony Ericsson, why not head over to and pre-order one? Rumors are also beginning to swirl about a mid-September launch. What a great way to make friends at your new school! It’s going for $999 with an initial $100 off and the phone is… Read More

  • Xperia X1 to run Windows Mobile 6.1, me to cry

    The charming, polished S-E X1 runs Windows Mobile 6.1, which is like saying that hot, 6-foot-3 model you know is a furry — and not the fun kind of furry but she wears a ratty old Tweety Bird costume with her ugly, loud boyfriend who dresses up like Sylvester and they have sex. And you’re all like “What? She can do better than that. Hell, I’ll dress up. Just not in… Read More
