Update: Crazy John’s have told me, that they have had the X8 available for $169 for a few weeks now, so hit them up and grab one, if you wish.
It’s old, it’s late but it’s cheap. Vodafone are due to launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 on their network on both pre- and post-paid. Starting at $0 upfront on the $19 Cap and $45 Infinite plans, and only $169 on pre-paid, the little 3.2 megapixel, 3″ touch screen handset, is certainly priced by it’s age.
Optus picked up the handset almost 6 months ago, now Vodafone are following the call. Let’s hope it launches with 2.1 instead of 1.6. It launches March 23rd, and should be picked up by most Vodafone dealers.
