Tutorial - Face Recognition in X10
ST-Ericsson, a 50/50 joint venture by STMicroelectronics and Ericsson, this morning announced its latest HSDPA platform built on the Linux OS. Dubbed U6715, the platform aims to aid handset manufacturers produce smartphones powered by Android – or other Linux-based operating systems – with a wholesale price of less than €100 ($138).
ST-Ericsson says it anticipates manufacturers to launch the first commercial products based on its U6715 chip platform in the first half of 2010.
The company claims the platform can support all the essentials of the smartphone experience, including navigation, web browsing, video streaming, email, WiFi, a five megapixel camera, a touch screen and more. A multimedia engine integrated into the hardware architecture of the U6715 frees most of the platform’s microprocessor subsystem to run applications.
At the same time, ST-Ericsson says the U6715 platform allows manufacturers to significantly drive down the cost of device production and thus make highly capable smartphones less of a niche play and more of a mass-market product.
The U6715 platform comes with an HSPA modem capable of delivering downlink speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps, and the company also boasts about its power efficiency. Equipped with a 1000mA battery, smartphones based on the platform are said to be capable of playing music for up to 40 hours and provide a talk time of up to 7 hours on a 3G network on a single battery charge.
While Android is an appealing mobile operating system, the barrier to entry can be high. Android phones aren’t cheap, with Verizon offering the Droid in the US with a $200 subsidy and the Nexus One is just as expensive with a data plan. STMicroelectronics, a Texas-based mobile semiconductor manufacturer and Ericsson, the Swedish cell giant (also known has co-owners of Sony Ericsson) are teaming up to bring low-cost Android phones to market.
“STMicrelectronics, Ericsson Team Up For Low-Cost Android Phone [ST-Ericsson Planning To Bring You An Android Phone For Less Than €100] » TFTS – Technology, Gadgets & Curiosities.”
U6715 – A HIGHLY-INTEGRATED HSDPA PLATFORM BUILT ON THE LINUXTM OPEN OS
The U6715 is a highly-integrated 3G+ platform built on the Linux open operating system, with a cost-optimized chipset and software to enable Smartphone features for all. By integrating an elegant and powerful multimedia engine in hardware, allows the ARM subsystem of the U6715 to be offloaded leaving a lot of mips for applications. Furthermore, this platform sets the standard for long battery life in a 3G Smartphone platform. Our commitment to environmental excellence appeals to consumers making greener choices in their everyday purchases.
“ST-Ericsson, as the joint venture is known, has been around since last year but now, details about their plans are coming out. They’ve developed the U6715, a cheap mobile phone platform that will run ARM-based processors and is ready for any variant of Linux to be installed on it.”
“ST-Ericsson says that the platform, despite being low-cost, can support the seven pillars of all the successful smartphones – navigation, web browsing, , e-mail, , 5-megapixel camera and a touchscreen. They’ve included a separate multimedia engine that handles the video processing, keeping the ARM processor free for running applications. Manufacturers could potentially go with cheaper ARM processors with little loss in performance, since the processor won’t be handling multimedia.
They imagine that this will create low-cost smartphones in the market since the big cell manufacturers won’t have to bother with the R&D time and money producing this platform themselves. Their goal is to have smartphones for sale less then €100 ($138). The company says we can expect to see smartphones based on their platform to start shipping in the first half of this year.”

Putting an end to all the speculation, Sony Ericsson have confirmed that the Xperia X10 will eventually be updated to a newer version of Android after its launch.
If the Android 1.6 will be competitive and capable enough to work in perfect harmony with the X10 does not know. But we can say that Pretenti develop a Google Android OS for mobile devices thereby excluding an exclusive OS for each device. Most important is that the Hardware and Software are a perfect match for later be updated only by other versions of the Android OS, good would be the intention of Google.Sumit Malhotra on the SE Product blog has confirmed that ‘there will be a software update for the X10 that will upgrade the complete Sony Ericsson User Experience Platform based on newer version of the Android OS.’ Hence in all probability, X10 will launch with Android 1.6 which will be updated to a ‘newer Android version’ later. Sony Ericsson has however not specified which version it’ll eventually be updated to.
Read what Sumit wrote on the blog blogs.sonyericsson
“Some reflections after meeting media, analyst and bloggers around the world over the last couple of months. I have been confronted with the same questions and discussions that you have been interested in from the very beginning. The underlying OS release version that we will use when launching Xperia X10 -why 1.6 and will it be competetive enough? These concerns are quite on top of mind among industry experts as well as advanced users as yourself, which I do appreciate. I will share my experience from enganging in these discussions giving it a context. It is a bit lengthy, so bare with me.”
Another Video Sony Ericsson X10 in New York by the guys SE-First: Google Goggles Demo and Places Directory Demo
Today, the guys of se-first having some impressions of an app called ‘Google Goggles’ App, which basically provides search results based on pictures taken of objects or places. It is available on the Android Market, and we installed it as one of the first things on the Xperia X10.
Watch the Video:
Xperia X10 - Google Goggles Demo
“Google Goggles is one of the latest products from Google Labs, which means that it is in an early stage of development. What it does is pretty simple: if you see something you want to know more about, take a picture, and Google Goggles will tell you where you can get more information.”
According to Google, this currently works in the following areas:
“After a couple of freezing hours walking around in NY, it was time for some dinner action - friends suggested a sushi place called ‘Tsushima’. I specifically did not ask for any directions, since I wanted to try Google’s Places application. Whatever place you are looking for, just type it in and you get more or less detailed information about that place. This not only includes address or phone number details, but also user reviews, a map, the distance and direction from your current location and a picture gallery. Enough details in order to provide a pretty comprehensive overview, without even having seen the place before.”

After the break, a quick hands-on video and a few pics taken with the Snapdragon-powered phone. [pocketpc.ch]“

“STOCKHOLM, Sweden – The Sony Ericsson J10, previously codenamed Susan, may just be the first Google Android smartphone to join the GreenHeart product line, a series of eco-friendly handsets from Sony Ericsson.”
“The device is the only compact candybar Android handset with an alphanumeric keypad in the market, and it might not even feature a touchscreen, which is actually the key selling point of Android devices.”
“Sony Ericsson hasn’t entered the Android market in full force; the Xperia X10 is its only official Android smartphone, while for the manufacturer’s rivals, this open-source platform is believed to be the key out of the financial crisis which has been causing losses to many of these companies.”
We don´t know if the information news is hot but we have doubts about a device with an operating system with small screen, take a big disadvantage at this point not to mention the other.Therefore we think it is almost unlikely that the sony ericsson spend your time with it.
Let’s hope to believe and honestly do not believe in this possibility.
The boys of the androidguys website had an android news across some interesting hot can say good hot secretary too very interesting news come across our desk regarding the Xperia X10 from Sony Ericsson. The much lusted-after handset with the top-dollar price tag is due sometime in the next 2 months. While most sites (including us) had the phone pegged as headed for AT&T, the document we have says that’s only half true.
“According to a white paper from Sony Ericsson, there will be two variants of the Xperia X10. One for Ma Bell, and another for Big Pink. Take a look at the image below and you what we’re talking about.”
Variant 1: UMTS HSPA 900, 1700, 2100 | GSM GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900
“We could be looking at two scenarios here. One, the white sheet dated November 2009 was put out before final specs were completed. The other… and we like this one… is that Sony Ericsson does plan to release one that works on T-Mobile’s network. Still, we can’t imagine either AT&T or T-Mobile wanting to subsidize $500-$700 of the phone to entice customers.”
