this phone is meant to be low-mid range for those who don't know... especially the people who say x8(low end) vs n8(high end, flagship), what a pathetic comparison. i reckon this phone has a good design and good features for what it's designed for, the lower end market.

So it's gonna be N8 versus X8 head to head. I can almost see the winner.

WTF Android OS, v1.6 (Donut)

R u serious.

Wow vee, the ph is being released so late, SE shud consider having Android OS, v2.2 . What say people.

That way HTC is anytime better.

I was so close in buying the HTC Desire, but then it was announced about the change of display that is going to take place, so waiting to see what's best.

BTW, I guess by the time SE X8 gets Android OS, v2.2, by then HTC wud b on Android OS, v3(Ginger Bread). Although phones like HTC wilfire, would not be able to handle Android OS, v3, but that's a whole different story all together, atleast it can handle Android V 2.2, which it would be getting shortly and it comes pre-installed with Android OS, v2.1.

Well UK O2 X8 owners shouldn't expect much in the way of firmware updates when SE make them available. Im still waiting for the X10 firmware upgrade (unlike other network users) and O2 Customer services don't even know anything about it!

from the spec, it is almost similar to LG optimus. X8 better in video (30 fps while Optimus only 17 fps) and little bit better in browser zooming. LG can play Xvid but still limited

so the price should not much different from LG Optimus (around US$260 in my country). But this is SE, so I think X8 will be more than US$300 (I hope I'm wrong) after tax in Indonesia

I expected that it will be launched in India first because of the X10 and X10 mini launches.

Any idea when the X8 will be come to India?

Damn SE!

If you'll just going to make mediocre handsets...then it's time for you to throw the towel. You have no right to be in these business anymore. SE screams mediocrity!

If only this phone has a 5 mp camera with flash then it would be a great mid ranger phone!
