Sony Ericsson is betting big on its latest XPERIA range of phones. The company has shared details about the success of the X10 and X10 Mini. SE’s Hirokazu Ishizuka shared with FoneArena in a interview that Sony Ericssion aims to expand it’s business with the X8.  So the price of the X8 would be below 200 euros or  just Rs.11500 approx. The X10 mini is retailing for around Rs.15,000 in the market now in India. So this puts the X8 below the X10 mini in terms of the price point

We had the chance to talk to the product manager behind the X8 who showed  a quick demo of the X8 including the four corner UI , Landscape keyboard, one finger zoom and youtube. Watch the video below !

Are you excited about the X8 ?  XPERIA has been projected as an expensive brand by Sony Ericsson and the X8 might just change that altogether

    If Xperia X8 really manage to be cheaper then X10 mini, than it can stir up the local market. Only yesterday, I confirmed price of X10 from Sony showroom & it’s 31k & if I remember correctly X10 Mini is 15k +.

    It much better option for people who wanna try Android. Plus you get that oomph factor going your way with XPERIA line-up unlike Samsung offerings in similar price band.

      Very true.

      Also Sony Ericsson has better track record for firmware updates compared to Samsung

        Exactly and apart from the old OS (Android 1.6), the demo shows it to be extremely fast. Hope they provide the Froyo update to this..if so then is definitely going to be a hit

        • http://www.fonearena.com Varun Krish

          it was super fast .. acutally even x10 mini is fast .. only the big x10 is laggy.. It will ship with 1.6 in some markets and with 2.1 in few .. not sure about 2.2

          • apaul

            well considering the amount of pixels the larger one has to deliver and the resource hungry Timescape UI in the X10…but this one is extremely fast..

            And Android 2.1 is good but i guess the bonus with 2.2 would be Flash and the application storage memory..well lets see how SE provides valid updates

    Se has said all Xperia will get 2.1 update i dought it will ever get 2.2

  • karthik
