No LED flash, no torchlight, no incall- recording

Yek. They can keep it. It looses more than it gains. It's just a fat X10-mini with normal android resolution so that more apps run as they should.

I was so excited to know that this phone will cost around 200 euros, but this excitement turned into disappointment when from another source I got to know it will cost about 250 euro's. But even then I'll buy this phone, if gsm-arena's review shows that it has more than decent audio quality.

If this is priced below or around the Rs. 10,000/- mark in India, it will give a taste of the android and the freebies that comes with it to the middle class market.

Its lack of a complete camera package cud be a hindrance, as it cud have been more spicier with a 3.2 MP AF with Flash of a 5MP AF with Flash.

The phone do looks bulky.

Its main competitors are Samsung Monte with GPS and WiFi and 3MP Camera, the nokia 5530, but non offers android at this price range.

I do not understand the commercial plan of sony ericsson, the x10 mini should be where the X8 is for the price placement !

Looks really thick, and the screen's not big enough for it's size. Not interested :(

btw it's going to have just 128Mb of RAM according to MForum. so it won't have any significant difference to samsung i7500, except for design. but i7500 has larger screen - 3,2''. so there is no point to wait for x8. anyone who needs x8 functionality simply can buy samsung i7500, which is here on the market for about a year already.

Recommended price was officially set 'under 10000 rubles', so i suppose 9990. That's about 250 euro / $330 USD.

Neat idea for business because while X10 is sitting on top of being the sexiest (and expensive) many can only wish to buy but they can try out this one easily.

And yes flash would be an advantage but for the price, its not too bad.
