Telstra launches Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10

Second Android smartphone on Telstra's network

Telstra has launched a second smartphone powered by Google's Android operating system, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10.

Available on May 4, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 follows Telstra's launch of the HTC Desire, which was the telco's first Android handset.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, the handset maker's first Android smartphone, includes Sony Ericsson's Timescape and Mediascape applications. Timescape effectively integrates all online and phone communications like SMS, e-mail and Facebook messages into one menu, while Mediascape stores and plays multimedia files, including music and videos. The XPERIA X10 runs the 1.6 version of Android, but will be upgradeable to the latest 2.1 version in the coming months.

Another selling point of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is an integrated contacts list with social-networking information such as Facebook and Twitter, in addition to regular phone book details. The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the same used in HTC's Desire and Google's Nexus One.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has a 4-inch capacitive touch screen, an 8.1-megapixel camera, and 1GB of internal memory plus an additional 8GB microSD card.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will be available on Telstra's $110 Ultimate plan with a 150MB of data or the $99 cap plan with no data included. Both are 24 month plans, with the XPERIA X10 also being sold outright for $1099.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
