Limited Edition Xperia X8 available from Virgin Mobile

Virgin Mobile, one of UK’s leading mobile carriers, announced that they will be releasing a limited edition red and black Xperia X8 on January 1, 2011. The unit which will be available exclusively for Virgin subscribers is available for free with their £10 plan. This plan comes with 50 minutes of voice calls, 250 text messages and a data cap of 500 MB. There are no details yet on how long the contract period would be but I’m guessing there would be a 24 month lock-in period. This is actually a great deal coming from Virgin Mobile and Sony Ericsson and will definitely increase the number of Xperia X8 models in the UK.

The Xperia X8 is an android device running on Android 2.1 that has access to the 100,000 apps available in the Android Marketplace. You can customize the way your phone functions by downloading specific applications that suit your needs.

The question is will this model be available in other areas? Since this is a Virgin mobile exclusive the answer would be most probably not. If you would like to get your hands on this limited edition Xperia X8 you can either subscribe to Virgin Mobile or purchase one from a subscriber.
