Rumor: Sony Ericsson ‘Shakira’ to be Called Xperia X8

Remember the Sony Ericsson handset from last week that fell somewhere in the middle between the Xperia X10 and the X10Mini?  At the time it was suggested that the codename of the product was Shakira.  Today finds us learning it will end up with an official product name of X8.  Unfortunately we still don’t have any specs to share with you guys but we imagine it’s not far off. 

What do you guys think of the phone now that you’ve got some official looks at it?  Does it entice you at all?  Are you concerned it might be running 1.6 when it arrives?
