Sony Ericsson have released three different experience packs, which are compatible with the Xperia range of handsets. The three packs are officially known as XP110, XP120 and XP130 but, have also been named the fitness experience pack, business experience pack and the design experience pack.
As the names suggest, the contents of the pack match the sort of experience you will get with the pack. In the Fitness pack, the Sony Ericsson LiveView device is the main product. Also included in the pack is a wristband and clip and the SportyPal Pro Android App. While the app and Live View will work on all the Android Xperia models, the wristband is only designed for the X10 Mini and Mini Pro.
The business pack is however compatible with all the Android Xperia models, including the X8, or any Android powered handset. Included in the pack is a lifetime license for Office Suite Pro and a 6 month license for WaveSecure. Also included is a VH700 bluetooth headset and micro USB charging cable.
The design pack has been designed for the X10 Mini. The fashion covers we recently saw for the X10 Mini in the UK are also available in this pack. As well as the three back plate covers, in the pack charms are included, as well as lanyards, style wallpapers and three apps, consisting of Celebrity Gossip, Chip Chick and Fashion News.
The experience packs appear to be available in Singapore and parts of Europe. Pricing is currently unknown however, it is expected that each pack will be a different price, based on the contents of the pack.
Other fixes in the app are outlined below:
* Attempted to reduce memory usage. This should help users with high resolution devices like the Touch HD. We never experienced memory issues with our high-res devices, so make sure to let us know whether this works for you.

An app for mobiles has been developed that allows users to track their performance with summarized information, map view and detailed graphics about their workout. The application, SportyPal allows you to track your performance on running, cycling, roller blading, walking and “freestyle”. SportyPal makes use of the built in GPS, making it compatible on any Windows Mobile device, not just the Xperia X1, as well as being available in Java format as long as the phone has GPS. To use SportyPal and track your performance, you need an account with SportyPal which can be set up very easily from the X1 by entering your email address and a password to use. Your performance data is uploaded to their website where you can track it and share your performance information. The stats include information on speed and distance, as well as your average speed. It can also calculate how many calories you’ve burned. Along with that, you can track where you did your workout with a Google map being available. The application is similar to Tracker, an app for Sony Ericsson phones that tracks your performance, but Tracker only supports running. Both of the apps are free to use, so it’s worth changing over to SportyPal. You can view SportyPal in action on the X1 below.
