It seems like a new fashion is in town. Well, a new season has begun and we definitely need a new style, right? In the smartphone industry the worst style it seems to have started: the era of ultra-expensive smartphones. After the $1,000 Samsung Omnia II, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is now official, and it will cost a whooping 700 euros or, you guessed: $1,000. That’s cool right? It’s the unsubsidized amount, but the iPhone 3GS is so much cheaper and why wouldn’t you get that one? Judging by its quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and tri-band UMTS/HSPA networks, the Sony Xperia X2 will head to T-Mobile therefore it remains to be seen what pricing will the carrier chose. Verizon is getting the Samsung Omnia II so it will be very interesting to see which carrier offers the best contracts.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 features a 3.2″ WVGA TFT 480 x 800 pixels touchscreen, 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus, AGPS, WiFi, TV-out, Bluetooth, Google Maps, 4GB microSD card expandable of up to 16GB, phone memory of up to 110MB, and Windows Mobile 6.5 therefore we can expect this smartphone to become available after October 6th.
Well, what do you think? Way too expensive, right? Check out the full spec list here, and you’ll see that this smartphone doesn’t bring anything new. If you want to be successful then you have to come up with something innovative that nobody else has, and then put a $1,000 price tag.
