Sony Ericsson has just announced two new products that will be shipping in the next days: the XPERIA X8 and eco-friendly Cedar model. The XPERIA X8 is somewhere in between the X10 mini and the X10 as far as size is concerned. The screen on it is bigger than the one on the X10 mini, but the camera is dumbed down a bit.


This is possibly the most affordable Android phone ever and if you’re wondering about the specs, here they are:

Dimensions: 99 x 54 x 15mm
Display: 3 inch, 320 x 480 pixels
Memory: 128MB storage, 168MB RAM, microSD card slot (2GB card included)
