Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to Cost $880? What The?

Illustration for article titled Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to Cost $880? What The?

Yesterday we lamented that the Android-powered X10 lacks a certain je ne sais quoi, despite its beautiful 4-inch display, Nexus UI, and 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Now more bad news: The WSJ reports it'll cost about 6000 Swedish kronor ($880) off-contract.

No wonder they "desire to have a carrier relationship" to subsidize the price. Sony's long had a tough time cracking the U.S market on its own, and the X10 deserves better.


Bonus news: Remember how Sony Ericsson's page said it would arrive this February? Well, it's now gone back to "to be announced". Don't be too concerned if you've got your eye on's still slated to arrive by mid-next year. [Wall Street Journal]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

In all fairness, they do cost quite a bit to make and keep in mind that this is off contract. I'm pretty sure the 3GS costs just about as much off-contract.
