Sony Ericsson Xperia X8: A mid-sized X10?

by X10 on June 14, 2010

in News, Xperia X8

Sony Ericsson Xperia X8Leaked pictures of the Sony Ericsson Shakira did the rounds on the interweb last week. We speculated that this was likely a codename and now it seems that the handset will be part of the Xperia family called the X8.

We’ve attached a number of photos of the Xperia X8 after the break and initial impressions appear to show a handset that is fatter than the X10 with a smaller display and no camera flash. Apart from that it looks broadly similar to the X10, check out the piccies after the jump.

Personally, I don’t understand why so much effort is being concentrated on size, rather than content. Buying an X10 is like going to Starbucks for coffee.

Customer: I’d like a White Chocolate Mocha, please.
Clerk: Sure, no problem. Tall, Grande, or Venti?

fast in making new phones, but slow in providing software updates, what a wonderful company

I got the X10 almost 2 months ago in Vancouver BC here from Rogers and coming from the iPhone 3GS (which I liked and hated at the same time mostly because of iTunes), I miss the touch since it was the best on the iPhone. I sometimes have to press a or p or l twice for it to work. I also miss having 11 screens of apps on the iphone (actual nice apps that work properly and designed nicely) but that will change with time I guess.
The speakers in the phone is not what I expected. Sony Ericsson is know for music phones and all that so I wish they would’ve done a better job in terms of clarity and loudness.
Design is beautiful of both hardware and OS.
Somehow this turned into my mini review of the Xperia X10. Overall, a great phone but the upgrade should come a lot sooner than Nov. and I expect the newest Android OS and not just 2.1
Anyone know if anything in this menu can improve the phone (from dialer press *#*#4636#*#*)?

I have the x10i in the UK, I have problem with poor volume on ear speaker.
I have problems with having to tap a few times to get it to work.
wifi now takes forever to connect. bluetooth is a joke works when it feels like it.
Lets hope Sony sort something out.
maybe they are making this phone cause the x10i is well sh-t
