Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X8 has passed Federal Communications Commision (FCC) and we are talking about an Android 1.6 device from the Japanese-Sweedish joint venture manufacturer.
The X8 will feature a 3 inch display and a quad-band GSM HSPA radio with WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, A-GPS and FM radio, pretty much the basics, with proximity and light sensors being featured. With Android 3.0 not so far away and most of the devices running 2.2 and/or 2.1, an Android 1.6 device might not be that attractive to the consumers so we hope it will receive an update soon – so we heard, even though it might have been released with a more recent platform version to start with.

There’s no word on availability and pricing but given that the X10 has been launched in partnership with AT&T, the carrier could have this device too and the price tag might be around 200 EU, close to 250 USD.
