SE in Hong Kong advised that the phone release date in this market is 29 July and that the phone will be available in stores very shortly thereafter. This is the first time they have given a date.
im working at s.e. Concept store philippines, the expected release for this phone will be on august or september, here in the philippines they will release it on september.
We have been waiting for this phone for so long and as everyone expected there are
now better phones coming out like the motorola charm and with android 2.1 software
this will kill the Aspen. I love this competitive market where manufacturers have to be
be on their toes.
Meh, I have given up on this phone. Maybe it will never be released. From what I see from the review, the phone is not so great either. What's more, Microsoft is discontinuing Windows Mobile. I am disappointed...
Lorenzo, 08 Jul 2010May be we should ask Paul the Octopus to know when SE Aspen will be released?.. 2 boxes in the... moreLast week it has been released in China by name M1i. Just yesterday got my hands on it. Its a very handsome looking phone. Its big and bulky and bit slow, BUT usually all window phones are like this. It does justice for the purpose it is made.
I would have bought this phone if it was released two weeks ago, instead I bought SEX 10 mini pro. And its wounderful phone. I bought it at US$ 492 from Dubai. M1i/Aspen/Faith is US$ 277 in China.
May be we should ask Paul the Octopus to know when SE Aspen will be released?.. 2 boxes in the aquarium.. 1 indicating 2010 and the other one indicating 2012..
Leo : checked again with 3 Sony World center, all of them replied that it will be available in next 3 days.They also mentioned that its been launched but they are yet to get the stock and other information.
I am sure this has to be a software glitch which is delaying the aspen this much.....
But as they say... excess of everything is bad..
Sony... r u listening !!!
Checked in 3 Sony Centers in India, they are yet to get update from SE about the phone. So we need to wait for some more time. I am checking for it in every mobile showroom. Will keep u posted friends....
this is taking too longggggg.... I am planning to buy this phone if the price is reasonable. End of July, if it still hasn't been released, I am gonna buy Motorola instead.
This a reply from SE on a discussion (Where is Aspen?) on their page in facebook.
Nope, not cancelled. Sony Ericsson posted this three days ago:
I don't have a release date, but it shouldn't be long!
