Compare Xperia X8 black Deals

Sony Ericsson has made a range of increasingly good Android smart phones in recent years and has been the recipient of critical plaudits as well as commercial success.

The Xperia X8 in black is a good starting point for any mobile user who wants to upgrade to an Android smart phone without having to commit to a particularly expensive pay-monthly deal or spend a large amount of money upfront.

Sony Ericsson has tinkered with Android user interface to make it more intuitive. There are also exclusive apps and services pre-installed which you will not find on phones from other manufacturers. The most impressive of these is Timescape, a platform which lets you combine social-networking feeds from Facebook and Twitter along with your email inbox and your SMS delivery service. This makes it simple to organise your social life from a single hub.

As with most Android smart phones, the Xperia X8 in black has Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS capabilities. That means you can enjoy access to turn-by-turn navigation through dedicated applications and also location-based services from, for example, Google Maps. You will not only be able to stay on the right track but also discover nearby businesses and amenities while you are out and about.

One of the other advantages associated with owning an Android smart phone is that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 can be used to download apps and games from the Android Market. There are lots of exciting programs which are compatible with this model, so you can stay entertained and informed wherever you are.
