hey sony,, what are you guys doing?!??, samsung, lg, are storming the market with affordable full touch phones,, are you guys can't compete them?? making affordable full touch phones that even a student can afford?? now thats what i called mass market,, how about this,, how about desighning a full touch phone that is weather proof, dust proof, water proof, slightly shock proof,, a'la C702??? if you can't compete with the leaders in mass market, why dont you change and innovate the game??? Go fight!! Sony ericsson!!!
Watch out for rip-off merchants selling this phone including play dot com who are pre-selling the phone for £400+. Sony officially stated that the phone will sell for under 200Euros (£163)!!

Read Sony's statement on Xperia X8 including price from the following link:
I hve been eagerly waitin for x8 since 2 mnths... nw if x8 is priced more than x10 mini... i will be uttrly dissapointed!!!! I hope ne of u guys can get more information on it.
In an news from PC WORLD dated 17 Aug... It is mentioned that Xperia X8 was launched in a press conference in Bangalore. The news article says X8 along with some other models will be hitting markets in a couple of weeks and SE will be announcing the prices along side. It also says the X8 has been positioned between the X10 and the X10 Mini. Does that mean X8 price will be more than x10 mini????
Hurry up Sony, I want to buy either the X8 or LG gt540 phone with the latest Android version 2.1 and upgraded to 2.2.
I read that Sony will sell this phone for under 200 Euros (watch out for home shopping catalogues increasing the main retail price!) I hope that Sony sticks to their words!
I also like HTC's Wildfire, but a few things put me off from buying it - low quality camera, video recording 15fps (I think), screen resolution, battery life of a day, and price (it currently costs £279 (GB pounds).
Sony Ericsson X8 (costs under 200 Euros) has a better camera and video recording at 30fps. Photos on LG GT540 (costs £99 - £129 GB) is not bad, but the video recording is only 17fps.
