Sony Ericsson's Xperia X10 has finally lost its "coming soon" tag with one of the UK networks.

However, while T-Mobile might be the first operator to offer the handset for sale, it has added a note to say "please allow up to 10 days for delivery".

To get the phone for free, you'll have to be prepared to stump up £35 a month for 2 years, and that will get you 900 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited internet.

However, there are plenty of other tariffs to choose from over 18 and 24 months. One even goes as low as £10 a month over 2 years – although you'll have to cough up £226 for the phone up front, and make do with just 100 minutes and text messages.

Interestingly this is considerably more expensive than the HTC Desire, which has also cropped up on the site, thankfully a lot cheaper than the tariffs we spied on the Carphone Warehouse website.

The same £10 per month tariff will see you having to pay £164 up front for the phone, some £62 cheaper than the X10, and will also be available for free on a £35 per month tariff.

However, customers opting for the Desire will get 300 more minutes than the X10 deal, with 1200 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited internet included.

Which do you look the like of more, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 or HTC's Desire? Give us your thoughts below.
