by Reads (5,105)

Today is the launch of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 from AT&T. This Android OS smartphone has a surprisingly low price given its many high-end features: a large touchscreen, 1 GHz processor, a 8.1 megapixel camera, and more.

It is debuting at $150 with a two-year contract, when similar models go for $200.

The lower price could be releated to its out of date operating system version: the Xperia X10 runs Android OS 1.6 at a time when OS 2.2 is becoming increasingly common. Still, Sony Ericsson has promised to release OS 2.1 for it some time this quarter.
