Sony Ericsson unveiled a new brand called Xperia. The first product in the Xperia lineup is the Xperia X1 which features an arc-sliding QWERTY keyboard, a metallic body and a large 3" display with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution.

The Xperia X1 features a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and photo light, Bluetooth stereo (A2DP), aGPS, USB support, WiFi, FM radio, microSD memory card support, 400MB internal memory, ...

The Xperia X1 features four input methods: the touch screen, arc-sliding QWERTY keyboard, 4-way key and optical joystick. The phone should be available in the second half of 2008.
