Is the Xperia X10 Headed to T-Mobile After All?

xperia_sideWe just had some very interesting news come across our desk regarding the Xperia X10 from Sony Ericsson.  The much lusted-after handset with the top-dollar price tag is due sometime in the next 2 months.  While most sites (including us) had the phone pegged as headed for AT&T, the document we have says that’s only half true.

According to a white paper from Sony Ericsson, there will be two variants of the Xperia X10.  One for Ma Bell, and another for Big Pink.  Take a look at the image below and you what we’re talking about.

Variant 1: UMTS HSPA 900, 1700, 2100 | GSM GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900
Variant 2: UMTS HSPA 800, 850, 1900, 2100 | GSM GPRS/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900

We could be looking at two scenarios here.  One, the white sheet dated November 2009 was put out before final specs were completed.  The other… and we like this one… is that Sony Ericsson does plan to release one that works on T-Mobile‘s network.  Still, we can’t imagine either AT&T or T-Mobile wanting to subsidize $500-$700 of the phone to entice customers.

Let’s hear what you’re thinking in the comments.

  • LOL how much will the payments be on this thing with T-mobile's unsubsidized monthly payment plan? too much!

  • Galen20K

    Interesting bring it!

  • Loving that screen size on Android devices phones keep getting larger and larger.

  • Sammy

    Which version of the android OS will the Xperia X10 be running?

    • According to the image above, 1.6 (Donut)

    • Sammy

      Sorry, I just saw it above, at the website they don't say. Anyway its going to be Donut 1.6. This is a disappointment. Might as well get the Motorola Cliq at Costco for $49.99 or just wait for better phone. if they upgrade to smarter version of Android that you can root then this is the phone I'm going to get.

    i dont think t mobile will get this.. and this is why “UMTS HSPA 800/850/1900 only available for phones sold in Americas (except Brazil) and Australia. UMTS HSPA 900/1700 not available for phones sold in Americas. UMTS HSPA 1900/2100 available worldwide.” from there sony ericsons own site http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/products/mobileph… you find this under the spec sections “UMTS HSPA 900/1700 not available for phones sold in Americas” that means to support for t-mobiles 3g here in the states

    Honestly I think the CLIQ is a great little phone. Given that Motorola has committed to updating the OS before too long, it is an excellent value.

    i sure a heck hope it comes to T-mobile,then there would FINALLY be a phone worth staying on T-mobile for !!!!!!!!

  • HuffaPuff

    Lovely 4" screen but only 65 thousand odd colours. Android 2.0 = 16 million. Why 1.6 for X10?

    • Because that's what they already sunk a bunch of labor into developing a custom UI for. Same reason Cliq and Eris are on 1.5.

  • NAME?: AUSTIN "DANGER" POWERS T-MOBILE?: YES PLEASE YEAHAHAHA, YEAH BABY YEAH!

  • I love this article.

  • M @

    @schwiz, about $40

  • Why 1.6 for X10?

  • good !

  • @broncosfantx LOL, that's a good point!

  • hello , can you say more about that.

  • expect your next nice post.

  • nice phone.. love it..

  • wow xperia 10,, it's should be expensive,, just can to see it,, hhaha

  • It is interesting waiting for both the variants of the Xperia X10; One for Ma Bell, and another for Big Pink. I would like to meet the Nokia C3 too.

  • You made a few fine points there. I did a search on the issue and found mainly people will go along with with your blog.

  • It is very exciting to watch these two variants of the Xperia X10 and Ma Bell. I think it would be interesting development to see the happening the mobile world. It is an informative post.
