Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 rolls out

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 rolls out
The long wait is now over! Sony Ericsson´s first Android-based handset, the Xperia X10, is finally on sale at several online retailers. Assuming the average shipping time would be several days, we need to say that the information about the end of March market release of the device (March 29, 2010) proved to be accurate after all. 
Cool! And what about its price? Well, dear readers, anyone willing to get a contract-free unit of the high-tech model should be ready to go to great expense, because the price tag of the X10 is in the $770-850 range. This, however, does not include the relevant shipping cost, insurance and extras the device can be ordered with.

So, what do you get for your hard-earned cash? The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is one of the most powerful Android handsets on the market today and still the only one with 8-megapixel camera and 4-inch screen (Android-based devices with similar specifications are expected to hit the shelves this summer). The X10 integrates 1GHz Snapdragon processor and runs edition 1.6 of the operating system. Sony Ericsson has tried to personalize the interface to the best of their abilities and added really interesting and multi-functional applications like Timescape and Mediascape. It´s up to you to decide whether or not the Xperia X10 is worth the hefty price it´s available at.

I don't understand the price issue: The lowest price of Xperia X10 in Norway is 786$. But the lowest price of Omnia HD is 826$. Where i can find cheapest phones, with 100% guarantee?

Unlocked phones are not cheap. If you want the full fledged feature/smartphone that you can't get in the US, then prepared to shell out some major cash.

Absolutely- the real killer with this is that it runs Android 1.6 - you have HTC Desire, Samsung i9000 Galaxy, HTC Legend, etc. all running 2.1 - why spend so much on old technology? I feel sorry for SE - they delay so much and are always playing catch up, a long way away from their P800 / P900 heyday!

A lot of Android phones run the older versions, not just this one. In fact, the problem with Android is that the newer devices being released don't include Android 2.1, they usually come shipped with 1.5 or 1.6!

I love everything Sony, and I was very enthusiastic about the X10 when it was first rumoured over a year ago, but I was so frustrated with endless delays that I simply gave up. Now they are asking 800 bucks for a phone with an outdated OS version, and nobody knows how long it's going to take them to get to the U.S. As of today, there are no Sony Ericsson smartphones officially sold in America, believe it or not. So, with all these disappointments I got an HTC HD2 when it became available through my wireless provider T-Mobile yesterday, paid a no-contract price of 449 plus sales tax, and can get it officially unlocked very soon. So far - absolutely happy with it.

I lol at people say it come with a "OUTDATED OS".....SO? it will get updated and catch up by times... and the price tag...well dame...is no one every learn from SONy. since when is there phone CHEAP??? Wait a month or two. Once a carrier got it with contract. then Its unlock price gonna drop around 500-600. Thats about the average. BUT. to me the biggest DISSapointment about the phone is that. "ITS TOO LATE". Other phones are already 10 step ahead of it."HTC" Sometimes you just wonder, WHY? sonY...

well sony ericson.... thats a pretty bad move on your part releasing the phone for 800. dollars!!!!!. The htc hd2 just came out and is half the price not even on contract, nevermind only 20 with and upgrade. Anyways not very excited about this phone ya it has some nice specs and runs on android , but really who the fck is gonna pay 800 dollars for a android 1.6 phone. Yes it has an 8 megapixel camera but that's what a reg digital camera is for. Fail sony ericson. HTC alllll day
