How many of you already know, Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, previously Rumored as Shakira, Sony Ericsson announced this phone around Mid june! If you don’t like the large Xperia X10 and X10 Mini is a bit too small for you! Sony Ericsson got the perfect size for your needs. Xperia X8 is a compromise between a large flagship X10 and “smart small” X10 mini. This is a very functional Android-smartphone in the middle price category. It’s cheaper than mini as well. 🙂
Xperia X8 was scheduled to launch in Q3 this year with Android 1.6 Donut and an imminent upgrade of Android 2.1. This Device is on it’s Schedule and started to hit the Shelves worldwide. The Inbox contents of Xperia X8 complete set consists of:
– MicroSD memory card to 2 GB
– Wired Headset MH810
– Charger and USB-cable
– Removable rear panel
Well, this might vary according to various markets over the world. This is a Standard Package of Xperia X8, which can be modified by regional retailers to suit their market and hence price them Accordingly! 🙂
Xperia X8 is not yet available in India, but it can be available anytime from now to next weekend. The Expected Price quoted from Sony Ericsson Experience Stores in New Delhi, India are 13-14k INR! But to our knowledge, it would come with an official price tag of 14,595INR. Which would eventually sell in the range of 12k to 13k! 🙂 Let us know if you want to get the Best Deal Price, so that you can bargain around that price here in New Delhi!
Xperia X8 has a look very similar to X10 Mini or X10. All the same 3 navigation keys on the front panel and 3 standard keys on the right side: volume keys and camera activation button. In addition to it, the front panel consists of proximity sensor, lighting sensor and speaker. At the top, traditionally situated special protected plug microUSB connector, Power button, and a custom headphone jack, 3.5 mm, which allows to connect not only the standard headphones, but also your own Headphones. On the back side of the phone,there is camera, 3.2Mp (Fixed Focus) and external speaker. It comes with Interchangeable Panels. Each panel has a unique color with a smooth transition of colors. In all, three of them: pink, blue and silver.( You’ll get any two of them! ). It’s made of matte plastic -No fingerprints magnet this time!
Display of Xperia X8 is a 3Inch ( diagonal ) Capacitive Screen with resolution of 320x480Pixels. It has also a special coating that protects it from light scratches like Xperia X10. Screen is Bright and has good Contrast, doesn’t seem to show gradients! The battery in the X8 is the same as that used in Vivaz and Vivaz pro – EP500 1200 mAh.
Xperia X8 is still Launched with Android 1.6, which is a huge surprise! I mean a mid end phone with Android 1.6 at Sept 2010 is crazy! I mean it has to compete with likes of HTC Wildfire! Sony Ericsson has promissed that Xperia X8 will receive Android 2.1, Eclair somewhere in Oct/Nov. But Xperia X8 comes with a unique 4-Corner UXP by Sony Ericsson( same as X10 Mini or Mini Pro ) which makes Handling the phone with one hand super easy! 🙂 It also Comes with Timescape-similar to X10 Mini. In addition to standard media player, X8, and boasts a built-in FM-radio with RDS. The external speaker at the new items is very powerful, with good soft bass.
Xperia X8 is equipped with a 3.2-megapixel camera with fixed focus. Maximum resolution photograph of 2048×1536 pixels. By the way, video quality of Xperia X8 is quite decent. I will upload the Video sample of Xperia X8 in a while! Xperia X8 is based on Qualcomm MSM7227 processor with a clock frequency of 600 MHz. Exactly same as X10 mini-still this feels faster than X10 Mini. Internal memory is 128 MB. Package includes a microSD memory card 2 GB (you can install up to 16 GB). It has a RAM of 170Mb.
