Vodafone To Launch Android-based Xperia X10 In April

Vodafone, one UK’s most popular telecom service providers, has announced that the company will soon be offering Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X10 Android-based smartphone in the UK sometime in April 2010.

The telecom company made the announcement on its website, which said that interested customers can register on the website. However, Vodafone didn’t mention the price at which the smartphone will be offered to the masses.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 is the company’s first smartphone device to run on Google’s Android OS, which is fast gaining popularity among the smartphone users. Sony Ericsson’s new offering will join the likes of Google Nexus One, Motorola Milestone and LG InTouch Max, which are being offered by Vodafone in UK.

Vodafone has already listed the phone on its website, scheduled for an April but Sony Ericsson has plans to start selling the phone directly from its website from the month of March.

The X10 comes with a state-of-the-art 8.1 megapixel camera and runs on Android 1.6 with Qualcomm’s 1GHz Snapdragon installed as the processor.

The phone promises to a power-packed offering from the company, which had revolutionised the mobile phone market with its Walkman series mobile phone line.
