As expected, Sony Ericsson has launched Xperia X10 along with X10 Mini and Mini Pro in India today. In a glittering ceremony, Sony Ericsson announced that Bollywood star Kareena Kapoor will be their Brand Ambassador in the country, although I doubt Kareena has ever heard of Android before today.
Anyways, It is surely a good news for all the Indian Android lovers who were disappointed after Motorola did not launch Milestone on March 22.
Sony Ericsson has partnered with regional and local content providers such as MTV India, UTV, Shemaroo, Electronics Art, Indiagames and Disney among others to deliver entertainment content on their new smartphones.
On the price point, all the Android models are priced as we anticipated, Xperia X10 will cost you Rs. 35, 795, while there is nothing known about the prices of X10 Mini and Mini Pro.
Hirokazu Ishizuka, the Corporate Vice President and Head of Asia Pacific Region said that SE Xperia X10 and all other Android models will see the Android 2.1 upgrade in time, depending on market demand. He also added that they might even go straight to Android 2.2, but only after rigorous testing of its stability.
