When Razec from Esato designs a Sony Ericsson concept phone, you know you’re in for a treat… This is also the case of XPERIA X10, a very neat smartphone concept, bearing the codename of Eureka. This is a curved side sliding device, with dual front design, metallic finish and brushed metal finish.


Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 supports quadband HSUPA, GSM, UMTS, EDGE connectivity, but there’s also WiMAX on board, WLAN, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR and DLNA technology. The handset’s display is a 640 x 320 color TFT, a resistive touchscreen with support for handwriting recognition and full finger navigation.

X10’s specs list also includes a full QWERTY keyboard, stereo speakers, a 600 MHz TI OMAP 3430 CPU, 192MB RAM, 256MB Flash memory, 16GB of internal memory and the famous Symbian OS. Opera 9.7 handles the web browsing, while the UIQ UI Theme handles the interactions.


What would a hot and new XPERIA handset be without a very cool camera? Enter the 8.1 megapixel sensor featured on the Eureka/X10, coming with autofocus, LED flash, Sony G-Lens, stereo sound video (WVGA 30 fps), 20x digital zoom and a mineral glass lens cover.

The phone’s battery is a Lithium Polymer 1500 mAh unit and mobile gamers out there were not forgotten, as Razec’s concept also comes with a dual mode QWERTY keyboard, doubling as gaming keys.


Widescreen aspect ratio will make gaming on the X10 a pleasure and there’s even a neat accessory for the phone, also in the conceptual stage: the IDC 900 electronic hard case, you can check out below. The case incorporates a a 176 x 36 OLED display, a digital clock and an internal fast port.

I have to say that Razec did a great job with this concept and I’m really curious to see his next device, a QWERTY Symbian phone with a panel/widgets UI on board.
