Sony Ericcson Xperia X10 VS I-Phone 3GS

 Here is another Android phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 running the almost outdated Android 1.6, versus the evergreen iPhone 3GS which runs the Apple OS.

Obviously, OS versus OS would not do here, so we shall look at the other features of both devices, in particular where there is a substantial difference.

There are two main differences, one on the phone and one in the services. First of all, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has an 8-megapixel camera whereas the iPhone 3GS is still on the 3- megapixel camera.

The difference in service is that the iPhone offers more than 100,000 apps in the Apple AppStore, most of which will cost money to download, whereas the AndroidStore has much less apps, around 10,000 of them, but most of them are free to download.

I suppose that it will come down to whether you want a branded phone to flash around, or if you would rather have a much better camera on the handphone. Beside that, the Xperia X10 is only three-quarters the price of the iPhone 3GS.

The Apple iPhone 3G S, features improved speed and performance - up to twice as fast as the iPhone 3G. It has longer battery life, a high-quality 3 megapixel autofocus camera, easy to use video recording and hands free voice control. iPhone 3G S includes the new iPhone OS 3.0, with over 100 new features such as Cut, Copy and Paste, MMS, Spotlight Search, landscape keyboard and a new Find My iPhone feature that works together with MobileMe to help you locate a lost iPhone.
Data speeds are upped to 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, and storage capacity will extended to 32GB as well. Users' can expect a built-in compass, Nike+ support, and a more powerful battery that offers 5 hours of 3G talk time and 9 hours of WiFi internet use. There is a voice control interface that allows voice commands to be understood by the iPhone 3G S. Apple is also touting an oleophobic (fingerprint resistant) coating.
