3D mapping for  Sony Ericsson Xperia X10

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 may not have been given a solid launch date, but exciting news about its capabilities continues to emerge, with the latest teaser showing off the development of a full-3D mapping application for the smartphone.

See the video below

Created in-house by Ericsson Labs, the 3D Landscape software has been demonstrated in a YouTube video showing its touchscreen interface and impressive visuals.

The Xperia X10 uses the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor that is found in the Google Nexus One, so the fairly intensive processing requirements of the software are met with ease.

It seems that many Android mobiles are going to be doing the rounds in the first half of 2010 and on paper at least they all seem to share fairly similar technical specifications.

It will be impressive apps such as this 3D mapping software that will allow the likes of the Xperia X10 to stand out from the competition.

However, the video demo suggests that a development kit that allows the mapping software to be ported to Java is already available, which might compromise exclusivity somewhat.
