Sony Ericsson X8 Announced

Sony Ericsson has announced a new smartphone in their Xperia lineup. The new phone is called the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 and from what Sony say, it takes the best from the Xperia X10 and the mini X10 versions and puts those in a package costing less than ‚¬200.

The Xperia X8 uses a very similar UI to the X10 mini. When launched it will either run the Android 1.6 OS from Google [GOOG] and then shortly after receive an update to Android 2.1, or it will launch with Android 2.1 depending on timing and the market it is going to. However, there is no mention of Android 2.2 just yet unfortunately.

Other features on the Xperia X8 include a 3 inch touchscreen along with a 3.2 megapixel camera on the back. The device can connect up to GSM GPRS/EDGE networks at 850/900/1800 and 1900 MHz as well as UMTS HSPA 900/2100 and UMTS HSPA at 800/850/1900 and 2100.

For other connectivity it also has WiFi and Bluetooth and it is powered by a 600 MHz processor.

It is expected that the Xperia X8 from Sony Ericsson will launch in the 3rd quarter of this year.
