NTT DoCoMo to sell XPERIA X10 in Japan

Japanese wireless provider NTT DoCoMo on Thursday announced it will sell the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 in its home market. The device will be known as the docomo Smartphone Xperia and share the same 1GHz CPU, 4-inch touchscreen and Android operating system as the X10. An 8.1-megapixel camera will be part of the specs, as will Wi-Fi. Access to the Android Market will also be available.

It will additionally sport the Mediascape application from Sony Ericsson that organizes music, photos and videos. A new "infinite button," when pressed while a song is playing, will trigger an in-phone and online search of all content related to the artist. The Smartphone Xperia will access data using the FOMA high-speed HSUPA/HSDPA network for 2Mbps upload and 7.2Mbps download speeds.

A face recognition feature will tag individuals in photos if they have a preloaded picture saved in the contacts section.

NTT DoCoMo will launch the handset in April, along with a devoted docomo market for smartphone users, though pricing has not been announced.

The move is a first, as most Sony Ericsson phones sold internationally, especially smartphones, are not traditionally offered in Japan.
