Sony Ericsson’s upcoming entry-level Android phone Xperia X8, the X10’s cheaper brother, can be seen strutting its stuff in what presumably is the first unboxing video of the device. The Xperia X8 has the same interface as the X10 Mini and is also powered by a 600 MHz CPU, but the X8 has a larger 3-inch screen (HVGA) and a camera with just 3.2 MP.
Like the other Android handsets in Sony Ericsson’s X-series, the X8 will feature the Timescape and Mediascape applications. It should be available in select markets in the next couple of weeks, and will only cost around $250 unlocked. The X8 that is demonstrated in the video is running Donut, which is pretty preposterous considering Android 1.6 was released a year ago now, but the X8 should get updated to Android 2.1 along with the other Xperia devices before the end of the month.
Here’s the content of the box, according to SE-First.com:
- Xperia X8 mobile phone
- 2GB Micro SD Card
- USB cable
- 4 additional covers
- Quick Start manual
