Watch the XPERIA X10's Rachael Interface in Action

Illustration for article titled Watch the XPERIA X10s Rachael Interface in Action

In case you missed it, the XPERIA X10 got official overnight. Besides the 1GHz Snapdragon processor and big 4-inch capacitive touch display, it's Sony Ericsson's beautiful Rachael interface sitting on top of Android that impresses. Take a look:

At the event, Sony Ericsson also said that the X10 is just the flagship in a new Android-powered range, and that the Rachael UI will also likely end up on its Symbian phones. Interrresting.

SlashGear points out what Engadget noticed, too: the software running on the pre-production handset shown overnight was sluggish because it's not yet optimized for the Snagdragon processor. That will no doubt change by the time the phone ships early next year. [SlashGear, ElectricPig, and Sony Ericsson]

After watching that ad I am now convinced I am a beautiful blond woman whose femininity and smarts are represented by my white plastic phone and black plastic glasses respectively.

It turns out that purchasing said phone will get me a hot guy on a Vespa. Score. #sonyericssonxperiax10
