ifixit tear down x10 mini

Ifixit.com have had the pleasure of taking a E10i (European, similar to the E10A US model) Xperia X10 Mini and opening it up and dismantling it. Sounds like fun? Well, fortunately they have also documented the procedure so that anyone who wants to try it can do (we aren’t advising anyone does so) and anyone, like us, who just wants a nosy inside the X10 Mini without risking breaking one can see it all for themselves.

Apparently the procedure was pretty easy to do and although they didnt put the handset back together they seem sure it will be a simple task too.

Sony Ericsson is having a real tough time with their security. Details about upcoming handsets have been leaked recently and this time it’s the Sony Ericsson “Julie”.

The Julie is reportedly a Windows Phone 7 device. It is rumored to look somewhat like the Xperia X10. The phone will sport a QWERTY keypad and is likely to support multi touch gestures. It will mostly be powered by a 1GHz processor and rumor is that it will feature a 4″ multi touch capable display too, something the Xperia X10 range is sadly lacking.

It has been noted that there doesnt seem to be any flash for the camera on the X8 which would be disappointing but again, until specs are released by Sony Ericsson we can’t confirm that.
