Hong Kong and Taiwan are the first to get the Xperia U and Xperia sola, the first two Sony dual-core mid-range droids. The Xperia U got pushed back from the original May 7 launch date in the UK, but whatever the issues that caused it were, they didn’t affect launch in the two Asian countries.
In Hong Kong, the Sony Xperia U will set you back HK$2,498 (€246, $320), while its price in Taiwan is NT$9,900 (€259, $337). That's about as much as the phone is expected to in Europe (£204, € 260, $338).
The Sony Xperia sola which packs more features (like tracking your fingers at a distance) is pricier - Hong Kong residents can grab it for HK$2,998 (€295, $383), while people in Taiwan will have to shell out NT$10,900 (€285, $370). Those prices are for the White and Black color versions, with the red one expected to arrive later on.
Taiwan can also look forward to the Sony Xperia P, which should arrive some time in May for NT$13,800 (€360, $468). Mid-May is also when Europe (aside from the UK that is) should expect the Xperia P and U to land.
Thanks for the tip, Killing Spree.
The Sony Xperia U only costs £189.99 unlocked in UK, so I'd expect the Sony Xperia Sola to cost around the £230-£240, but that's just my guess. Hopefully it isn't too expensive because I hope to buy that phone...
Anybody having any idea about the launch dates of Sony Xperia P in India.Please do share. TIA
how can you say the reviews are bad when there are no reviews at all!?!?
