Sony-Ericsson Philippines today launched the Xperia X8 — its most affordable Android handset in the Xperia line by far with a suggested retail price of Php11,600.
The Xperia X8 looks like the smaller sibling of the flagship Xperia X10 of Sony-Ericsson.
Sony-Ericsson Xperia X8 specs:
Qualcomm MSM7227 600MHz processor
128MB internal storage
up to 16GB via microSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g
3.15MP w/ VGA recording @ 30fps
FM Radio tuner
GPS w/ aGPS support
Li-Po 1200mAh battery
Android 1.6 Donut
The body is a bit more plasticky compared to the X10 with a brushed-color at the back panel. Like the other handsets in the Xperia line, the display used is just regular TFT LCD which isn’t the most impressive of the lot.
We’ve discussed with Sony Ericsson reps the situation regarding the apparent delay in rolling out newer versions of Android OS on their handsets. They promised it will be out around November but for the meantime, it’s just v1.6 for now.
