Only about a week ago, Sony announced its latest Android smartphone device – the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. The Xperia X10 is one of the high-end smartphones on AT&T’s network and compares favorably with the Samsung Captivate in terms of specs. As of August 15, the Xperia X10 is available through AT&T for $149.99 on a new two year agreement. The only complaint about the device, thus far, is the fact that it ships with Android 1.6. Nearly every major Android device ships with at least Android 2.1 and some (Motorola Droid 2) are even shipping with the latest Android 2.2. In terms of specs, the phone features a 4 inch touch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8.1MP camera, and 2GB onboard memory. It even features native apps such as Timescape and Mediascape. Hopefully the device will be upgraded to a higher version of Android OS in the future, but for now, it’s a strong alternative to spending $199 on a top-notch Android smartphone.
