Sony Ericsson launches Xperia X8 smartphone

Written by Fudzilla staff


Making Android cheap
Sony Ericsson has announced the Xperia X8, a sleek Android based smarphone that should perfectly fill the gap between the X10 and the outfit’s mid range phones.

However, unlike the X10 or the (over) simplified  X10 mini, the X8 seems to be a much more sensible choice both in terms of the price and the spec. It should cost just under €200/$250, making it one of the cheapest Android phones on the market segment.  Furthermore, it features an 3-inch 320x480 screen that sounds like a much better deal than the QVGA 320x240 unit found on the X10 mini.


The X8 also packs a 3.2MP camera, push mail support, microSD slot and a standard 3.5mm audio connector. It measures just 99.0 x 54.0 x 15.0 mm and at 104 grams it’s relatively light.

However, there are also a couple of downsides. It runs Android 1.6, so users won’t be able to enjoy HTML 5 and some other features, such as Microsoft Exchange support. Still, at €200 it offers an affordable and  stylish ticket to the Android world.
