There has been some disturbing news about Sony Ericsson lately. First, the Satio was pulled out in the UK, then, it was, Aino's turn to be held back. Luckily, it turned out that Aino's exile is only a rumor.
Today however we received word from a Carphone Warehouse representative that says there are absolutely no issues with the handset whatsoever. What's more, there have never been any and they have the Aino well in stock.
Right now, the handset is available in the numerous stores of the company, as well as online. You can check the actual availability status here.

Seems like this holiday season won't be troubled by the bad people from the press after all as justice scores a victory. Good luck. Aino!
