There's a huge buzz about the Xperia X10 - the upcoming Android smartphone from Sony Ericsson - and if you're keen to get your hands on one, Vodafone will set you a handset on 2 April, it said today.

The operator said the X10 will be available for free on monthly contracts from £35 - with a two-year tie-in - providing 900 minutes' call time, unlimited texts and 500MB of mobile internet.
