The price is pretty ok. Not attractive but its ok. Considering you get three more back covers with different colors its a pretty neat handset. The camera seems to take good photos for its type and the phone is surprisingly fast.
available in india.. at poorvika stores chennia for 14990.. well i guess shld reduce further coz this was the price on their website.. gr8 phone, looks marvellous.. i'll wait for the price to drop further before i go for ths 1, n will surely wait to know if the OS can b updated.. android 1.6 is lik so yesterday..
cann't wait for review now that its out.
I hope they review it with retail version.
In summary :
- Great UI (feels like IPod)
- No landscape on most apps (current only sees working on the picture album)
- Only has keypad input, no qwerty keyboard
- Very clutter on the web browser
- Good speaker
- Quite responsive
- Very fat
- Battery cannot be replace by you/embedded
- GPS locator is fast enough
Note : If the apps using relative sizes, it will fit in here.
i'm still waiting here in the Philippines for this phone...:(
pls...SE,,release this one!
A reason I can think of it being sell good is battery life, small size and Andriod. While I am not fan of Andriod yet but I can clearly see its integrition process with Google services.
With good big Andriod tablets and handsets rolling out with less battery life, people are forced to carry a backup handset with them for let say making calls or simple texting and for these type of people, this can bring real charm because they can utilize most of Andriod's power on the go easily.

girlish, makes guys don't want to buy it
so thick, makes girls refuse to buy on... moreMy friend, game of sizes is a very tricky to understand unless you experience yourself. If done it right it will want you to come for it again and again and if not, well you will hate it but experience is must.
I used to think like you too, too thick no buy, too big no buy etc. Unless I tried couple of big but slim forms. They were big but not thick so they fit in hands and in pocket easily. X10 is an example where designer made it fit easily while keeping it big and thick.
Now Our X10 mini is very small so if they go for slim profile, it will not fit right in hand, user would end up dropping it more often. Yet it is very thick but small so it will slip into pockets way too easily without notice.
It is all in designing right and I can tell you Sony Ericsson has very good designer and they look over many things and that is why they are true to ask the price they ask because good designing is not a cheap job.
It is okay if this pint size Android will never going to get Froyo. v2.1 is okay. We should't really expect the Xmini to get all the goodies compared to the hi-end devices. But I'm pretty sure it will going to sell well. The package includes 3 extra back covers. Can't wait to get one.
it has started shipping means it will be available in the market in 2-3 days max
means by the end of may x10 mini and vivaz pro would be available in most of the countries
now the focus shifts to x10 mini pro and aspen which r due to release next month
Lok, 23 May 2010Yeah they "say" they will upgrade. And even if they really do, they say only to 2.1,... morei dont think x10mini and pro will suppory android 2.2 as it requires atleast 200mb of internal memory and mini and pro have only 128mb :(
Xperia X10 is NOW Available in the UK!!!!!!!!!!!
UK users, go grab urs through Vodafone contracts
Venom , 23 May 2010read on sonyericssons official blog that they did announce that they'll update whole x10 familyYeah they "say" they will upgrade. And even if they really do, they say only to 2.1, and only at the end of the year. But there is now already 2.2 and end of the year probably 3.0...
Lok, 23 May 2010Too bad android is only 1.6. There is 2.0, 2.1 and now 2.2 available. Cute phone will buy one... moreread on sonyericssons official blog that they did announce that they'll update whole x10 family
Too bad android is only 1.6. There is 2.0, 2.1 and now 2.2 available.
Cute phone will buy one only if i can update the OS.
Karim ADHAM , 14 May 2010I Cant believe you Nick I do appologize but have a very contradictory opinion on yours, I have... moreAny opinion is accepted of course. I was not talking about every SE product but only for w995. I used to have other SE phones which were perfect. Anyway I havv lost a bit my faith to that manufacture, but this x10 mini is very attractive. The bad thing is that is seems a little girlish to me, so I am going for the htc hd mini
