    I am not using the stock screen... I switched to ADW.Launcher. The music widget is from "Cubed" (^3) and the photo frame is "Turtle Photoframe".

    Appreciate it man. I'm totally in love with Turtle Photoframe, and I actually tried Cubed before, never realized they had the small widget. Nonetheless, thanks!

    Also the only version of android for the X10 is 1.6, think how easy it is to change the theme on your pc its just as easy with Android.

    I installed Jorte about two hours ago and have spent til now getting it just so... but I LOVE it. I also have sorted out my Google Calendar and Birthdays and its all going together beautifully. So thanks for the info from OP's... great use of a thread to spread the good word about various apps.

    I think you are looking at Beautiful Widget from the market. Its a paid app but its properly brilliant imho. The date links you through to your calendar, the time to your alarms, the weather to a five day forecast. There are loads of themes and you can change the font and transparency and do all sorts!

    Spike, mate dont be hard on yourself. Told you we were all noobs once. Just ask and ye shall be answered!

    I think at time more simple is best for me. I dont want my homepage(s) too intense and complicated lol. I want simple but very functional. just got the battery lite widget. neat. wow it goes fast on 1.6! lol. hopefully 2.1 helps batt life!
    r
    Ive got 1 page full of apps like FB, yellowpages, maps, youtube, email, weather and wisepilot. The main middle page has timescape, small time and date , phonebook, mediascape, messaging and dialer and my right page has batt lite, calendar widget, some contacts, dolphin browser, my account (wich i have no clue what it is) and shop.

    basic stuff but right now all i need.

    question, I have a few contact names that i dial alot on my right page but their picture wont show up, its just the little contact default card still... my old htc dream showed their face picture? why not xperia?

    tanks!!

    Lol, I usually charge mine in the evening when I get home from work, but since I am going out tonight I wanted to make sure it was fully charged before that.

    I love my sticky pad. :D

    Just got my X10 a few days ago. Total noob to the android experience (bye bye blackberry!) and I'm loving this phone. My setup is nowhere near pretty, but Olivia is. ;)

    I think most of us know the business-oriented beginnings of BB, so no need to dive into that. I asked my friend why she liked her blackberry so much,
    and her reply was: bbm. That was it. All of her friends had blackberries so that they could all chat on bbm. It's sad to think that a single piece of IM software is steering the minds of new customers.

    I came from BB 9700 and BBM is the only thing I miss. It is pretty unique, there is a group chat function and picture posting. This is not only fun but can be very useful to convey a message or a share puctures in real time, with a group of friends. For me it was very helpful from overseas since it uses minimal data and not 50 cents for each message.

    The other thing is that BB condenses data very efficiently, so one uses much less data. From approximately the same usage, my data went up from 100 mb to 400 mb per month.

    It is a very efficient device and does well at what it is meant to do but by no means is it any no fun.

    I, for one have never looked back. :)

    Just my 2 cents.

    How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows – Simple Help

    Try that. I believe the step you're missing may be setting your phone to USB Debugging. (It's under Settings > Applications > Development.)

    Thank you Hazardous Waste that was the my missling link! So I wasn't being entirely thick then hurrah!:D

    I will go and have a play now. Then just got to figure out how to put pictures on here.

    Here you go my pink heaven.... until I get bored and change it all again.
