The Android packed Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has only just been announced, but already Sony Ericsson is talking up its sequels, telling us that more Google smartphones are on the way, sporting the same slick UI!
Sony Ericsson’s head of portfolio planning Steve Walker was on hand at the launch of the Sony Ericsson Xperia 10, and told us that the touchscreen telephone was just the “first of a range, a family of products” featuring the new social networking UI.
“It’s the flagship of a range,” he said, implying that lower spec, cheaper Android devices could follow the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 in the new year, though he wouldn’t confirm it emphatically, or clarify whether a follow-up would feature a hardware QWERTY keyboard.
Walker did let slip that the next models in the line could surface within the first half of next year, so if you’re of the gambling type, a flutter on the Xperia X11 appearing at Mobile World Congress might well be worth it.
We’ll shout up as soon as details on future Sony Ericsson models emerge, but for now enjoy the Xperia X10. To begin with, you can sate yourself with our Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 hands-on gallery.
