It should be there but on other android phones that did not have the market app, all they did was reset the phone to its factory setting and it appeared. Try to reset the phone.

Where are you located? Some countries don't allow the Android market. If so, one option is to wait till someone roots the X10 software and you can access the market through a custom Rom.

I also found another site where the say that the Android Market is limited in Saudi Arabia, But I do not know why you do not have it on the phone, have you contacted the service provider to see what they say, maybe your phone has corrupted software on it, you may have to exchange it.

That's the list of places where people can publish free apps from. It's different from the list of places where people download free apps. It was linked on the page you provided, and is here:

Supported locations for distributing applications - Android Market Help

Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia is not listed.

The market is location sensitive so the only way to get around it is to debrand your phone to somewhere in the world that allows market access eg UK. The following link is for a thread on this and there is a further link to an external site that gives a tutorial on debranding. I'm sure if you have a bit of a google you may find some more info.

Debranding Your Xperia X10

Here is another link for a debrand guied picked up from a similar thread on XDA..

As far as I understand it yes debranding lets you select the country you want and when you then run the update service it gives your phone the android market. However I would say that I am not mega techie... I just zoom around the forums and pass on the info that I think will be of help.

Yes you can debrand a biggi too, many have. I haven't so I can't comment on how it all works tho. XDA developers site is another good one to get info on doing techy stuff to the phone if you want to gather a bit more info before doing anything to your phone.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 - xda-developers

Have you tried updating your phone as the most recent firmwares are R2BA02* the last digit seems to depend on location and carrier.

Is there a Market "clone" available somewhere, which connects to the actual Android Market? Like something they would use on custom roms? I searched but didn't find much, maybe that could be helpful, although I think the debrand method is easier as if you update/repair you'll still have the market installed.

Root, debrand, flash with world generic version.

Or exchange the x10 from Saudi Arabia for a x10 from India.

1. Download this

2. install on your PC
3. Run application and follow the instruction

It will install the generic Firmware and the market will appear.
