    I guess we can use this for Questions and Answers. Maybe I can answer some too.

    Is there a voice search?

    I noticed one thing on the X10 that seemed missing from Android. (On the HTC G1(Dream) running 1.6 and Motorola Droid(MileStone) running 2.0,) there was a Voice Search button next to the google search widget, but it's not there on the X10, and no voice search app in the market. Is it there somewhere?

    Nice thread, btw Ive noticed that too. Im not sure either on the voice search. I read something somewhere about that but I cant remember where. But I will find it...
    I ve got some small questions, if your phone is turned off, then plug in the charger..does yours automatically turn on?

    Since this is a scratch resistant screen are you gonna use the screen protector?.

    And last on my box its says Free Screen protector, leather pouch and Video stand..whats the video stand...its not in my box?

    ummm, there is voice search. bring up the app screen by sliding fingers from bottom to top and scroll down. There is an app called voice search. Hold and drag to screen to place.

    Oh I see what you mean. But weird that you only have the voice dialer because mine has voice dialer and next to it has voice search.

    No, I am not going to use a screen protector because all these touch screen devices that I have had have turned out great without protectors so I don't see a reason to get one.

    Have had Samsung Tocco Ultra, at the moment have HTC Hero, Itouch and now the Xperia 10. Not 1 scracth throughout use on the Tocco Ultra, Itouch and HTC Hero.

    1. Scratch-resident film - I probably won't use it though because i had ipod touch for 2 years, and no scratches, and I even keep keys and coins in the same pocket.
    2. Yes, if it's off, the screen will cut on once it gets plugged into the USB charger.

    Still though, I really want to protect the screen. I'll might look for a case, I'm sure sony or 3rd party will something stylish.

    on Voice Search - I can't find a voice search in the app market either.

    Im using clear protector on mine. They're better than zagg IMO, cuz they dont yellow out (which is important if you have a white one). I use it on all my phones and it works great, I have the full body one. It protects the screen and gives the phone better grip with the rubbery material.

    My two main questions, both of which I have yet to see Sony answer in a recent post (and frankly I don't trust their comments from November, because they were plain inaccurate about multi-touch support when they mentioned it then) are:


    1. What is the color depth of the screen hardware (ie: is the screen technically capable of 16M colors)?

    2. Is the screen mineral glass, or is it simply glass with non-scratch coating?


    If anyone finds confirmation from Sony on either of these (and it would certainly help if Sony actually posted full tech specs on their website, rather than the minimal specs they have now), I'd love to read it.

    Yeah, received this tweet from SonyEricssonNA about an hour ago:

    Again, disappointment (re: color depth).

    Honestly, that wouldn't matter, you can't tell the difference between 65K colors and 16m especially on a 4 inch screen.

    Compared to AMOLED, I looked at the HTC HD2 the week before, and each an the advantage, AMOLED is very vibrant and brilliant, you can see it from the side, but it's not as sharp as LCD, but again, you'll not notice the difference unless you put it side by side.

    @saltorio - haha, you seen content on not getting X10 and getting another phone, so just get the Desire, and be happy :D Its all good.

    Well said. If someone is old enough he can remember that standard desktop was 16-bit back in the 90s...

    Yeah, this constant whining is rather lame, I agree - he should just get the Desire and stop complaining here about this silly, non-issues like 16M vs 65k colors etc.

    I downloaded a translator application, and it says the voice-recognition library isnt installed. So that should explain the lack of voice search on the google widget. I hope they include that when it goes to 2.1, but no big-deal.

    Mxtc, it asked me that too but then it connected me to the market place and I downloaded it from there and was able to use voice search.

    Sorry Kamm. I call it as it is, and I just think that something that's being pitched as a flagship phone should have flagship features. Also, I remember what 16-bit color looked like, and as a graphic designer I can see the difference between that and 18 or 24-bit color.

    With that said, I'm still confused, as I got this from SE via email earlier today, which seems to contradict what the above tweet:

    @Saltorio - I feel you, but I highly recommend that you only get a phone that you know you'll be completely happy with.
    .
    Since you want Multi-touch/Pinch-to-Zoom, Android 2.1 don't get the X10. You might have to save up for a few months, or wait until Rogers offers a HTC phone, but be patient and find a product that you'll be happy with. (nexus one)

    Hmmm, the HTC Desire is a bit cheaper over here in the UK on both as unlocked or on a contract.

    I think you made the right move in waiting for another phone. This X10 isn't for you!

    Hi all!

    I am a new Android user.. litterally still unboxing the new X10 I just got half hour ago! :)

    Anyway I have a question.. how can I set the phone to silent but have one single person have a ring tone?

    I will be reading up on android and playing with the phone but this is quite a difficult one to solve on other hand sets and wanted to see if I can get it sorted sooner rather than later :)

    Thanks all in advance and I look forward to being with the Android community for a long time!

    Scott

    Welcome!

    Ringo (Lite) is free on Android Market and is excellent! You can assign different ringtone and SMS tones to contacts. The "Pro" version I purchased for my Hero was fantastic, but can't find it again in the market! :thinking:

    Has anyone had issues with linking their phone contacts with Facebook? I was able to link my contacts to Facebook, but X10 wasn't saving their Facebook profile pictures to the phone contacts. So now I'm still seeing the blue dummy pictures for each of my linked phone contacts.

    Any pointers?
