Xperia: Hype or Innovation?

15 10 2008

There really is no way to post about all the new handsets that are released on a daily basis. The trick is to pick the ones that generate the most hype or offer the most innovation. Well, the Sony Xperia is definitely bringing a lot of hype, but is it justified? Does the Xperia do anything that the iPhone, Omnia, HD, or Innov8 doesn’t?

Well, to be honest, I do not have an opinion, YET! I am not wowed by the phone, but then again, I might not have given it the attention it deserves, I was kinda busy looking at new phones like the Tube and the HD.

I am not generally a huge fan of Sony Ericsson’s phones, but I could be wrong, it has happened once or twice before. Just because my old Sony Ericsson K610 was a pretty boring and unimpressive phone, doesn’t mean they all are.

In fact, the specs on the Xperia are quite impressive. It offers a 3 inch wide VGA (800 x 480) touchscreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera (with photo light), A2DP Bluetooth, aGPS, WiFi, and microSD, just 400MB on board. Navigation is accomplished via touch, arc-sliding QWERTY, 4-way key and optical joystick.

I will study this phone and read people’s reviews more carefully before I express my opinion (wow, my wife would be so impressed, I am actually thinking before talking), but in the meantime, check out these videos:
