New Android Smartphone from AT&T and Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson and AT&T are working together on a new Android “superphone,” dubbed the Xperia X10 one that promises to be all things to all people — including heavy communicators, social media junkies and audio/video consumers.

The device features feature an 8.1 megapixel camera, up to 32GB of memory, a 4-inch screen and a 1GHz processor,.

The specific version of Android on which the device will be run is yet to be confirmed, Android 2.1 or the much-coveted 2.2.

Part of the phone’s software is Mediascape, which can access images, video and music content from the web, as well as from the device, for a more integrated viewing and sharing experience. Users can “view photos taken on the device as well as [their] Facebook and Picasa (Picasa) web albums,” reads a statement about the device. “Or, when listening to a favorite song on their phone[s], [users can] press Sony Ericsson’s infinite button to access related content about the artist pulled from the phone’s memory as well as albums, songs and video content from YouTube (YouTube) and search results from Google (Google),” it explains.

Another software feature is Timescape, which creates a chronological interface for social updates and actions. It draws data from Facebook (Facebook), Twitter (Twitter), photo sites, e-mail accounts, SMS messages and more. Items can be viewed in a scrolling menu, or the user can see a screen of all updates and communications from a single user or source.

The Xperia X10 will be available in the USA beginning 15th August.
