When it comes to value, one has to consider the price of the device when subsidized from AT&T which is currently $150 with a new 2yr contract and with a data plan. As far as comparing this device to others’ value factors, I would say that the phone itself doesn’t present any additional values beyond the device itself and there isn’t anything bonus that makes us believe that there is any added or lost value in the device or accessories. As far as the price goes, we’d say that $150 is about right considering the hardware included. Once again the lack of Android 2.x is really a big factor in questioning the overall value of the device compared to other Android devices.Conclusion
From our interactions with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 we can tell you that it was a very well thought out device that has practically no bugs and is a very well quality built device. The Xperia X10 takes a combination of good hardware specifications and combines it with a unique take on the Android operating system. The only problem that we found with this device was probably some of the issues associated with not having Android 2.x[mostly 2.2]. As most manufacturers push Android 2.2 to their older phones and release new phones with 2.2, it can be expected that Android 2.2 is the de facto standard for Android as of now. We do know that Sony Ericsson is working on an Android 2.1 update, but we are still a bit disappointed with the fact that it won’t be 2.2. There are a lot of good things that are going to be done with this latest update, but we just feel like the only shortfall of the device is also a huge one that affects many aspects of its use.
