It was a hot shiny day when I went around Denpasar, entering many hand phone stores, BTC, Handphone shop, rajawali, sony ericsson center, and several stores which I don’t remember their names.
I was looking for Sony Ericsson X8 (i.e. xperia x8, xperia exit). It is a new model by Sony Ericsson with Android OS. With sleek design, 3” touchscreen, upgradeable to éclair, and custom UI from sony ericsson (timescape), this X8 (i.e. codename Shakira) being a rare phone in the market.
My friends on Kaskus whose from Denpasar, Tangerang, Surabaya, Jakarta, Bandung, Samarinda, Malang, and others region also seeking this phone. But none of them got the phone.
But even when I asked to several local online stores, they said that they don’t have the stock yet. They offered me to indent the phone. So pitty
But one of my friend just bought it at the 2nd floor of Marina Mall in Surabaya. waw.. He’s so lucky. So I contacted my friend, my friend’s girlfriend, Sherly who lives in Surabaya to help me buy the phone.. But.. well.. I decided to abort the operation..
Because it will cost me a lot more money, the phone would cost more than 2 million rupiahs (official price: Rp.1.999.000). And that exclude the shipping, around 50 thousand rupiahs.. and tips for my friend… waw.. So, to save my money I decided to wait for the X8 to be sell in Denpasar. Hoping it’ll come with Éclair.
