Despite Sony Ericsson's troubles last year, the company is still deeply invested in the mobile phone market. They're still lagging behind some of the other major smartphone players in terms of market dominance, but their style has never failed to impress. The design of the XPERIA X8 and Cedar is also impressive, and if you have been holding out for either, they're both shipping as of now.


The X8 is the obvious highlight. It's an Android-based smartphone with a 3.2MP camera; SE calls this their "most affordable Sony Ericsson Android phone ever." Wi-Fi and 3G support is still included, and it also has GPS, Google Maps and Android 1.6. That's definitely an older build, but Android 2.1 is planned as an update later in the year.


The Cedar is in the company's line of GreenHeart phones, and it's built using an SE operating system that is also found on the W995, Elm, and Hazel. It's a more basic messaging phone, so smartphone addicts should look elsewhere. No pricing is being made public for either, though.

I'll have to pass on this,....that four letter word starting with 'S' and ending with 'Y' throws me off.
