We're not going to make any apologies. So long as Sony Ericsson continues to pretend like Android 2.x doesn't exist
and keeps kicking out new
devices running Android 1.6, we'll keep docking it points like the meanest of Russian judges. The 3-inch X8
is set to be Sony Ericsson's most affordable Android handset -- we were told it'll cost south of $300 unlocked
-- to date, but then you get your money's worth with a 600MHz processing core and a 3.2 megapixel fixed focus camera. Oh, even better news is that the X8 will get updated to Android 2.1 "a little later" than SE's X10 line. If you want to avoid all this Android upgrade drama (and save a few more pennies), Sony Ericsson is also starting to ship out its no-frills Cedar candybar
as well -- perfect if you just want your phone to act like a phone and little more.
