  • Camcorder fix hits FreeX10 custom ROM

    Zdzihu has updated his popular FreeX10 Froyo 2.2.1 custom ROM for the Xperia X10 to include the 720p camcorder fix that we reported on recently. The beta4 hotfix1 also includes a hacked camera driver so it works across all applications including Google Goggles and Barcode Scanner. He also said that he is committed to working […]

  • Custom Froyo ROMs finally get camcorder fix

    One of the biggest stumbling blocks for people when considering a custom ROM is that they will lose the ability to take video recordings. Most custom ROMs up until now have had this key feature missing. However, the gods at xda-developers have done it again. A patch is now available to download that will restore […]

  • X10 mini gets surprise continuous autofocus in Éclair update

    A number of Sony Ericsson X10 mini and X10 mini pro users are reporting that the video functionality of the handset has been upgraded to include continuous autofocus. This functionality certainly wasn’t on the change log, which makes me wonder why SE wouldn’t want to promote such a feature. Of course, there’s no HD video […]

    Those guys over at SE-First have been hard at work, following on from their unboxing video, they are first on the scene with some photo and video samples.

  • Xperia X10 photo/video samples around London

    One of the biggest plus points of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is its imaging capabilities. Daytime photos are simply the best I’ve used on Android, I say daytime as the flash on the X10 is pretty much useless for night photography. Anyway, to give you an idea of the camera’s abilities I took some […]

  • Google Goggles and other apps demoed on the Xperia X10 [Video]

    One of the great things about an Android smartphone is the quality of apps on offer, none more important than those from Google itself. Rog from SE-First was lucky enough to be spending Christmas in New York and even luckier to have the Xperia X10 handset on him. He has shot a number of different […]

  • More impressions of the Xperia X10

    Michell Bak from se-blog attended a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 press event and posted his impressions. There were a few interesting facts that were worth pointing out. For one I didn’t realize that you can choose to set the original Android as your default home screen or you can use Sony Ericsson’s Timescape application. The […]
