Apparently its official, the delay has been confirmed by a SE rep. The new release window is Dec 08 - Jan 09.
Back in the spv days i asked orange who did these phones for them and they said HTC..So they must have been licensed back then by microsoft to build smartfones on their behalf..Bil Gates wanted a windows computer in every ome which he nearly has,,i wonder why he did not want to get windows smartfones into everyones pocket plus why did microsoft not build them themselves??

Yeah, the world wide release (selected markets) for the X1 was always 4th Qtr 2008.
Unfortunately for me, I have asked Sony Ericsson Australia about the Australian release and they said it will be January 2009. I have also asked the guys at Sony Central in George St, Sydney and they also said 1st Qtr 2009.
But thats ok, my K850 is still going strong.
This will be a fantastic phone, cant wait to pull it out when people are talking about their iPhones or N96s......
"....oh sorry, have I distracted you?"
It not sure when it will be released and it is obvious that the reasons are related to the software defects that they can't fix (see the history of HTC similar products).
The Sony Uk online store says Oct 08 .. a few months back it said Jan 09 .. and if u go to vodafone.co.uk its coming soon and they normally say this when their phones are coming in a months time so just 30 days to go n we will get to knw.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2008Wow all you guys complaining about the release date must be really stupid.SE said the Xperia X... moreThat's the point, announced almost 8 months ago with still no official release date, who knows when it will be released. The hype around it is starting to fizzle out, and some people aren't prepared to wait another few months for something that doesn't have a release date!
Troy Miller, 30 Aug 2008"it's not 8th october you muppet it's october 2008" lol, it's true. http://www.intomobil... moreThe article is legit but their simply speculating I think. A delay hasn't been made official as of yet. There staying that SE are having problems with the OS.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2008hope this thing comes out september 08 as posted by sony ericssony phone broke at this point its an N95 so yeah. For the time being going to get an N90 and wait for Xperia to come out.
"it's not 8th october you muppet it's october 2008"
lol, it's true.
does anyone know if the above is a true article?...
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2008Thor, it has accelometer. I think you'd better take a look at the specs first!!!Well my bad :) I just read that it has button to rotate, and thought that means it has no ascelomete to do this, good thing that it has both :)
Coop, 30 Aug 2008i waited a long time for this it waz supposed 2 come out in feb 2008 so i just got the imate 9502umm no it was announced in feb of 2008. the release date still hasnt been officially announced
Looks like it's to be delayed.... Great joy.
Pepsi, 30 Aug 2008I got sick of waiting for this thing, so i jumped on the Apple bandwagon and got an iPhone. ... moreWould it make any difference if they announced the device a week ago and said release date is sep or oct 08 ?
