Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 builds on the success of the Xperia X10 and the mini products and extends the most entertaining smartphone features to an even broader audience -- right down to the masses with its relatively low price tag.
"We are delighted to be able to bring the full experience of our Xperia smartphones to new consumers by delivering a fully featured device at a more accessible price point."
- Timo Maassmann, Product Marketing Manager for Xperia X8
