AT&T's Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is priced at $49.99 on Amazon
Is the $149.99 on-contract pricing for AT&T's just recently launched Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 just a bit much for a phone that was considered a big thing 6 months ago? Well, Amazon seems to always quickly offer the best deals on just released handsets – and they're doing the same for the X10. Not only are they offering the Samsung Captivate at the impressive price of $49.99, they're also placing the X10 at the same price point. So even though you might've had some doubts siding with the Android handset, especially when it's finally making its presence in the US after being available for some time overseas, the $50 cost won't be seen as much of a burden to you. As with any handset purchase through the online retailer, they provide you with free shipping that will undoubtedly sweeten the offer.

At this price, the phone is still barely worth it. For a phone that comes off as a mid to high end device, there is really nothing high end about it, except maybe the 8MP camera and the way the back cover feels in your hand. The SE interface is really annoying and overdone, there's no multitouch, the touchscreen itself doesn't register touches all that great, no 720p video recording, and Android here is nothing to rave about at all.

I agreen with you on this one, but I think you also forgot to point out this comes with a super outdated Android 1.6 version. Even with Android 2.1 update later on, this phone will still NOT have capability of multi-touching (confirmed by Sony due to the hardware they chose, not software). This phone, however, is got the look of every Sony fan's dream that is no doubt :)

You have had 2 SE peers contradict one another as far as multi-touch is concerned. Pinch-zoom DOES work while using Opera-Mini on the X10. The 2.1 update in September WILL enable 720p Video, increase screen resolution from 65k colors to 16 million colors, as well as improve over-all speed of the x10. Once updated to 2.1 what do all these other handsets have over the X10 as far as specs and performance goes?
