Sony Ericsson Launches Android-Powered Xperia X8

It took Sony Ericsson a while to get into the Android game, but it is now making up for lost time in a big way: the Xperia X8, the company's fourth Android phone in the last year, is now a finished product.
The X8 still doesn't have any carriers lined up, but with its three-inch, 480x320 display, a 600 MHz processor, GPS, WiFi, 3.2-megapixel camera, and a packed-in 2 GB microSD card, someone is bound to pick it up.

However, it may not make the light of day in the US, simply because of the fact that it can only run Android 1.6. It is locked out of any future release of Google's mobile OS.

Sony Ericsson isn't a big name in the world of US phones anyway, so it's not a big surprise. It is, however, noteworthy on a global scale how devoted SE has become to Android. It is now by far the most widely-used mobile operating system across virtually every major carrier and manufacturer. The only exception is Nokia, which (perhaps stubbornly) exclusively sticks to its own proprietary operating systems on every one of its phones.

The Xperia X8 should be landing carriers and coming out in some parts of the world by the end of the summer season.
