ony Ericsson in partnership with Dallas, Texas-based AT&T officially introduced today the Android-powered Xperia X10 smartphone. The device will become available on August 15 for $149.99 with a two-year contract with AT&T and a minimum smartphone data plan. However, Sony Style is selling the device for $20 lower than AT&T with a new contract, of course. Additionally, Amazon will sell the Xperia X10 for $49.99 with the AT&T contract one week after it’s released.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 features:
1GHz Snapdragon processor
4-inch [480 x 854] touch-screen display
8GB onboard memory plus 2GB memory card [expandable up to 32GB]
8.1 megapixel camera with smile detection
Unfortunately, the Xperia X10 will be powered by Android 1.6 [Donut]. No word on whether or not the device will be upgraded to newer version of Android anytime soon.
The Xperia X10 comes equipped with the Sony Ericsson Mediascape and Timescape user interface on top of the Android platform. Let us know what you think of this bad boy.
