Say hello to the XPERIA X10 from Sony Ericsson. This phone will be the first phone from the Swedish-based mobile phone manufacturer that will feature the Google-backed Android OS, while having a beautiful UI that is different to what is seen on other Android-powered devices.

The XPERIA X10 is only 119 x 64 x 13 mm in size, and weighs 135 grams. It will have up to 1GB of onboard memory, with additional memory via its microSD card slot. The phone will come packaged with an 8GB microSD card.

The phone will feature an 8.1 megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom, auto focus and geotagging functions, 4-inch touchscreen that is “scratch-resistant”, a 3.5mm headphone jack, GPS with Google Maps support and Microsoft Exchange support. The phone will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support with AD2P (Stereo Bluetooth).

Multimedia-wise, it can support MP3 and unprotected AAC files, while also allowing users access YouTube via an application on the phone (most likely from Android). It will also feature a new application called “Timescape”, which manages all your communications with one person, including emails, text messages, photos, Twitter and Facebook status updates.

Because it will support Android, it will have access to the Android Market, which allows users download applications to the phone. While the number of apps hasn’t surpassed the iPhone’s App Store, there are plenty of apps that you can choose from to download.

The phone is expected to come out in Q1 2010. You can see more images below.
