We have heard lots of noise lately about Europe and Android. Our brethren on the other side of the pond haven't had as many phones to pick from as we do, but they have some of the best.
Notably the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini and The Samsung Galaxy S have made a impacted on the European market. Both these devices are powerful enough to make a impact on the "European Sound and Image Association" as they have picked these two for their "Mobile Device Awards 2010 and 2011". The ESIA moves on more of a shopping season calendar as the reviews and awards are handed out shortly before the beginning of The Holiday Shopping Season. The Awards and reviews are published at this time of year so consumers can use them to research gifts etc.
What EISA had to say, "Based on the Android operating system, the Galaxy S is a ‘jewel in the crown’ for demanding users wanting to be connected, entertained and updated on the move. It is equipped with a huge 4-inch (10.16 cm) AMOLED, 800x480 pixel touch screen providing an exceptional viewing experience. The on-board 5 megapixel camera is without flash, but with video recording of 720p. Interconnectivity brings together Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi with DLNA, a hotspot function and AllShare which allows content to be shared between the mobile and Samsung TVs and Blu-ray players. It’s a well made device that should capture the attention of every mobile phone lover."
What EISA had to say, "he Xperia X10 mini from Sony Ericsson is a very small and stylish mobile phone. Nonetheless, it delivers excellent performance with a comprehensive range of features such as GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G and a 5 megapixel camera with flash. The phone runs on the Android platform and offers users the full benefits of a much larger device although it’s touch screen size is just 2.55-inch (6.48 cm) . Its small size and weight and variety of vivid case colours make it perfect for introducing the fairer sex to smartphone technology"
Both of these Android Phones are available from Vodafone.
