One of the downsides to the Xperia X8 when it launched, is that it still came with Android 1.6, one of the main criticisms of the Xperia X10. The low price point of the handset made up for this though, with the Xperia X8 being available for £130 in the UK on O2. This deal has just got even better. O2 have reduced the price of the Android powered Xperia X8 from £130 down to £100. The Android 2.1 update is also now rolling out for the X8, making this mobile phone deal even better. Unfortunately though, as we’ve seen in the past, O2 can be rather slow to release the update, however we do know it has been released and will be available on the O2 branded X8 soon.
