Official: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Will Get Android 2.1 in Q4

,----[ Quote ]
| Android 2.1 will go a long way to put the 
| Xperia X10 on the same playing field as 
| other smart phones.  However, we can't help 
| but think it may still be a little too late 
| for most people.  Keep an eye out for minor 
| updates in the interim as they're already 
| scheduled for the next few weeks.


Slider version of MyTouch 3G adds voice command button

,----[ Quote ]
| T-Mobile announced a new version of its 
| HTC-manufactured MyTouch 3G smartphone 
| featuring a QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1, 
| and an updated T-Mobile UI layer with a 
| voice-command "Genius Button." The mid-
| range MyTouch 3G Slide offers a 3.4-inch 
| touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth, a five-
| megapixel camera, and 8GB of preinstalled 
| memory, says the company.


G-1 to Nexus One: an informal comparison

,----[ Quote ]
| My wife thinks itâs significant that the 
| Nexis One is thinner and lighter than the 
| G-1. I donât, really, but then I have 
| larger hands and larger pockets than she 
| does. Sheâs probably right that this 
| difference will matter more to the average 
| mass-market consumer than it does to me.
| The biggest surprise to me about the Nexus 
| One is that Iâm missing the physical 
| keyboard on the G-1 far less than I thought 
| I would. I found the soft keyboard on the 
| G-1 annoying and difficult to use, but 
| something about the Nexus One version makes 
| it significantly easier. This could be a 
| consequence of the larger display size, or 
| possibly the touch-recognition software has 
| improved, or perhaps itâs both. The 
| effectiveness of the Nexus Oneâs voice-to-
| text feature helps here.
| [..]
| Overall, however, the Nexus is indeed a 
| clear improvement on the G-1. It points the 
| way Android is going pretty unambiguously â 
| towards head-to-head competition with the 
| iPhone, rather than simply vacuuming up the 
| market share of dumb phones and lesser 
| competitors such as Symbian and Windows 
| Mobile.
| In at least one respect â the voice-to-text 
| capabilty â Android is already ahead of 
| anything iPhone offers or is ever likely to 
| be able to support. Thereâs a huge 
| infrastructure of statistical pattern-
| matching engines in the Google-cloud behind 
| it that Apple wonât be able to replicate 
| easily, if at all.
