Orange has managed to grab the exclusive with Sony Ericsson's first Android device, the Xperia X10.

The mobile operator today confirmed the white version of the eagerly anticipated device will be available from early April and will be free to customers on select pay monthly contracts.

The device is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and features an 8.1 mega-pixel, auto-focus camera, a four inch WVGA touchscreen and 1Gb of internal memory with a 8Gb MicroSD card.

Francois Mahieu, director of devices at Orange UK, said in a statement: "We're really pleased to be working with Sony Ericsson to help bring their first Android device to UK customers."

"The exclusive white Xperia X10 allows users to make the most from their social relationships, whether over a call or online and is a great addition to our ever expanding range of Android devices."

The Xperia X10 will be available direct from Orange or on an Orange contract from Phones4U.
