x3-live-pictureYou know the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 that has been so fondly admired from afar? Name change. According to Tweakers.net (translated to English) a forum member with access to the phone and inside information from a Sony Ericsson employee says the phone will actually be called the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 when it is launched the first 8 weeks in 2010.

Yesterday we saw the first live picture of the phone and Ericsson tipped us off on a November announcement so it won’t be long before we know if this X10 name is legit or not. Personally I think it is silly to skip so far ahead for the purpose of marketing… you might as well call it the Xperia Infinity. And come to think of it… “Infinity” isn’t a half bad name. Until of course the “Infinity plus one” and “Infinity times infinity” phones come out.

With a 4-inch screen and 1GHz Snapdragon processor the X3/X10 definitely subscribes to the bigger and badder way of doing things.
