SE Xperia X10 introduces two new signature applications from Sony Ericsson: Mediascape and Timescape. What are these two breakthrough technologies all about, you ask?

Quoting the official press release:

Sony Ericsson Timescape™ manages all your communication with one person in one place. Browse through your conversations the bright way to check out your Facebook™, Twitter™, photos, emails, and texts all in one go.

Sony Ericsson Mediascape is the smart way to get all the music, photos and videos you want from your favourite friends and artists. It accesses content from everywhere – your phone, YouTube™, PlayNow™ – and presents everything for you.

Intelligence capabilities, integrated into Mediascape and Timescape™, can automatically recognise connections between contacts, content and media. By recommending alternative ways to communicate or guiding to new media experiences, consumers can discover more in a truly open way.

To wrap up this entry, here are two videos of SE Marketing Managers explaining the technology behind Mediascape and Timescape, respectively:
