AT&T’s trying to move the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and they’ve got just the promotion to do it: want one? Buy it with a two-year contract and the second one is yours. You’ll have until January 1st to take advantage of the deal, so act soon if you want a pair of matching phones for you and as a gift for someone special. (Psst: I’d still wait for the Olympus if you need a high-end Android on AT&T.) [SE Twitter via AC]
