    Last week we brought you news of a new Panorama app that Sony Ericsson has released for the Xperia X10.

  • Tired of Mediascape? Get access to the 3D Gallery

    Sony Ericsson has done a good job of burying the stock Android 2.1 3D Gallery deep within the software. This means that if you want to browse your photos and videos, one of the only options out of the box is through Mediascape. If you want to know what the 3D Gallery is, you can […]

  • Xperia X10 photo/video samples around London

    One of the biggest plus points of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is its imaging capabilities.

Anyway, to give you an idea of the camera’s abilities I took some […]
