If commercials, web demos, early hands-on footage (more), and PhoneScoop’s look from today’s luncheon in NYC weren’t enough of Sony Ericsson’s X10 for you, check out the videos embedded below that delve into the Nexus UI – as Sony Ericsson is calling it – by Engadget and Gizmodo. Incidentally, the NYC gathering occured amidst news and confirmation of SE’s impending pink slips, relocations, and closures. Odd timing.
Engadget notes the slowness of the very beta hard-and-software prototype and points out the current unfriendliness of the virtual keyboard. Their verdict is that the X10, in it’s current form, is “stunningly middle of the road.” It seems Gizmodo was a bit less forgiving, asking the question, “Why aren’t my pants on fire?” One positive bit of feedback from Giz is that Nexus is respectful of your boundaries – not forcing you to use their custom apps for contacts or media. You can access pretty much everything via the standard Android UI, though all is painted blue.
