We don´t like the price of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro
We have spotted unofficial information that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro will hit the shelves with price tags of $410 and $450 respectively. The prices should be valid for France and Belgium, where the X10 mini is expected to roll out this May, while the X10 mini pro - a month later, in June 2010. Of course, we are talking about unlocked, contract free handsets, but still...

Compare these to the price of the HTC Legend that will set you back with $620, but offers more extra features like 3.2-inch AMOLED display, Android 2.1, 384MB RAM and elegant aluminium body. We know the tiny size of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro makes them unique, but we believe they will be overpriced and at least $40-50 more than what they are actually worth. Take a look at what we said in our preview of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini:

“The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and mini pro are expected in the second quarter of the year, at a still unannounced price. This brings us to the question that if these babies get priced correctly (and Sony Ericsson doesn’t screw up in some way), we will have no other choice but declare them one of the coolest Androids out there.”

We hope the rumors about the pricing are inaccurate and Sony Ericsson´s tiny droids will be truly affordable handsets. In the meantime, we unearthed information that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 would appear in France (and other European countries) sometime in April at a price of $900. On the other hand, you should be able to get the HTC Desire for about $650 via eXpansys

Frankly, I am really, really disappointed with Sony Ericsson over this whole saga with Xperia X10. It has been rumoured for over a year now, it was officially announced 6 months ago, and they kept postponing the release date, and now they are telling us it's going to cost 900 bucks? This is simply ridiculous. I got fed up, and decided to go with the T-Mobile's HTC HD2 when if becomes available in the States next week.

Well, some Asia area has the X10 on pre-order this wednesday (3/17), so it will take another month or 2 for the US to actually get one. Unlocked X10 will probably go $800+ in Amazon or such online stores!

I like the compactness of these phones. But on the touch only one the screen is WAY too small. The qwerty model seems like a more functional and easier to use type of phone. It seems like in a way, this phone is TOO small.

Shaggy hair and a frilly scarf doesn't make me want this phone any more than I did before. It's a nice lil fashionable phone, if you wanna call it that, but I can't find a good reason to have it besides that, fashion. Plus SE is seriously smoking the Strawberry Cough if they think these Minis are worth those price tags. I mean, this has to be a facepalm moment for the company.

woo hoo, the full retail is 450. is it that big of a deal? That means if/when it comes to the states it will prob be around 100-150 subsidized. What is the big complaint? Sony overprices everything. LOL

Fuc Sony Ericsson overpriced phone the desire and nexus one are both better than x10 and the x10 mini that's a joke plus att will use yahoo as the search engine and cripple it like they did the backflip I would get the nexus one with att 3g it will be unlocked so it will have Google and theres nothing att can do but I know a lot of you like the Sony Ericsson better its beautiful phone but the specs are not as good correct me if I'm wrong I don't think ram/rom is as great as both HTC phones but anyway the x10 is a pretty phone but weaker

Well I will correct myself the ram/rom is just as great on the x10 and has a better battery and better camera but I've seen in YouTube videos the n1 crushing the x10 almost everytime downfall 1.6 it needs 2.1 and is overpriced but still a good phone
