Sony Ericsson’s Android OS-based Xperia X10 could head to AT&T this summer. The smartphone offers a large, high-resolution display, a 1 GHz processor and a 8.1 megapixel camera, among other high-end features.

According to an unconfirmed report, the Xperia X10 will be coming to AT&T in the 30th week of this year, which falls during mid-July.

The Xperia X10 is full of high-end features, starting with its 4 inch, WVGA+ (480 x 854 pixel) capacitive touchscreen.

It runs Google’s Android OS on a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The version available now has Android OS 1.6, but there have been unconfirmed reports that an OS 2.1 upgrade is being developed.

Another high-end feature on the X10 is the 8.1-megapixel auto-focus camera with flash and video support. It offers face and smile detection, as well as image stabilization.

To set it apart from the competition, Sony Ericsson has built some special apps for its new Xperia models, including one that can bring together messages from a variety of sources, including Facebook, Twitter, photos, emails and texts.

The X10 is a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) GSM worldphone. There will be two versions: one with the 3G frequencies used in North America, including AT&T, and a second with the frequencies used in Europe, Asia, etc.
