"Sony's Android-powered X10 $50 From Amazon" - Just to clear things up: Sony no longer makes cellphones. X10 is a product of SonyEricsson which operates independently (decision wise) from both Sony and Ericsson. Calling it "Sony's X10" is totally wrong.
[citation][nom]welshmousepk[/nom]So they've managed a typo in both the title AND the article?Good job again, Toms.[/citation]
You must be new here. Tom's is note a site that cares about journalistic credibility on the news front nor is it a site that cares to hire writers that know how to write. I've literally seen 7th graders with better proof-reading skills than most of the Tom's news writing staff. I'm wholly convinced that they don't proof-read at all. As in none. It really is quite appalling which is why I come here less and less.
Every journalist will make a mistake every once in a while but the Tom's news staff has it bass ackwards. Every once in a while they don't make a mistake. It's rare. And sad.
Good reading comprehension guys: "if you're willing to wait a week, $49.99 on Amazon.com". The article is from today/yesterday... the website advertises sales that are valid today... today is not a week from the 9th.
You can't automatically assume the author is wrong based on evidence that is capable of being invalidated tomarrow.
You can get an HTC Aria phone for free through AT&T. It's better to have a smaller screen and Android 2.1 than a larger screen with some severely outdated version of Android. The Aria will likely see Froyo soon too. This Sony phone will probably get Android 2.1 long after Gingerbread comes out. What a waste of money.
