People who have been craving for the X8 can now finally get their hands on it. Sony Ericsson has officially started shipping the handset across the globe. It was quite a few months ago that Sony Ericsson had announced their next XPERIA handset the X8. The XPERIA X8 features a 3-inch screen with HVGA resolution and is powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.
The X8 like its elder sibling the X10 will feature Sony Ericsson’s proprietary Timescape UI. The handset will be running on the out-dated Android 1.6 (Donut) like its other XPERIA siblings. The X8 is expected to get its Android 2.1 update later this year’. The update will be rolled out a bit later’ after other Android members of the XPERIA family get their share of Ã‰clair love.
Along with the XPERIA X8, Sony Ericsson has also started shipping the Cedar. The Cedar is a GreenHeart series phone and thus is made of recycled plastics and comes with a high-efficiency charger.
