XPERIA from Sony Ericsson
The launch and importance of Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA range of phones should not be underestimated. Some of you Engadget readers out there may have heard rumours of this, but the news was made public at the Mobile World Conference
yesterday in Barcelona.
It is a potential game-changer for SE both in terms of form and function. The X1 (first in the range) is as impressive technically as it is visually. Notably, it is the first phone from SE built on the Windows Mobile 6 OS, and signals a radical change in their technology strategy. It is an elegant slider with a 9-panel configurable touchscreen and has every imaginable bell and whistle out there at the moment.
“XPERIA™ X1, a stand-out, arc slider phone from Sony Ericsson designed to address the growing need for a premium, converged mobile experience.”
The commentary has been incredibly positive out there in the blogosphere, and I encourage all of you to check out the links below and familiarize yourselves with what has been a highly anticipated launch.

Sony Ericsson is an iris partner, by the way.
And yes, I want one very badly.
