AT&T To Get Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Hopefully Cheaper Than “Unlocked” Pricing.

If you search the web right now for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, you’ll quickly find prices up to $999 for an unlocked version of the Smartphone, plus an “unknown release date” tagging along on those product pages, however if you don’t mind waiting past the initial unlocked date, you may find the device at much cheaper AT&T contract pricing.

A recent rumor at Engadget is leading us to believe that AT&T will pick up the North American version of the device upon it’s release and will offer 3G data support in the U.S.

The device is expected to ship with two flavors, an international version and a North American version. The AT&T model would offer the following calling bands: 800/850/1900/2100mhz.

Unfortunately if the phone is anything like the Xperia X1 it may not be worth its weight in contract negotiated pricing. Stay Tuned for more info as it arrives…
