The head of Digital and CRM for Sony Ericsson, Ben Padley has said, “Sony Ericsson’s new phone, the X8, gives consumers more choice when it comes to finding the right touchscreen smartphone for them. Some users love the compactness of the X10 mini but others the more handheld PC feel of the X10. However, a handset sized in the middle, like the X8, is just what some consumers have been waiting for.”
