Re: Video Review: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 with US 3G and Android [Re: LisaG]

First, great video review. I've been looking into this phone since it was announced last November (seems like forever ago!), but your video review was the first to show off features outside of time/mediascape.

With that said I have one question- when typing a text message, can you turn the phone and get a landscape keyboard? One website claimed that the landscape keyboard was only available for typing e-mails (not text messages), and I'm just trying to get confirmation of that.

If this is indeed the case- how is the portrait keyboard for typing? I've got relatively huge hands, so this is a major selling point for me- even more so than the OS version, lack of multitouch, no front-facing camera, etc. If I can't comfortably use the keyboard it might be a deal breaker on the phone I've been pining for ever since it was announced.

Thanks in advance for you help, and great video review/overview! I look forward to reading the in depth review here in the next few days!

It's true that you only get the portrait keyboard when composing an SMS. I'm not a big fan of the Sony Ericsson software keyboard on the X10a (both portait and landscape)-- it's oddly difficult to type on compared to other Android phones, even those with smaller displays. I haven't found a way to force it to use the standard Android keyboard either, but will try installing a 3rd party keyboard.
