official announcement that Sony Ericsson will initially launch its long
awaited Xperia X1
Windows Mobile-based smartphone on September 30 in the UK, Germany and Sweden,
Vodafone UK and Germany just confirmed that both carriers will launch the Xperia
X1 in its home countries (namely the United Kingdom and Germany).
While it's yet listed as coming soon only, without any further information when
it will be available from the carrier, now we know which mobile operator will
carry Sony Ericsson's first Windows Mobile (Professional) smartphone. Not yet
known is the carrier which will initially sell the smartphone in Sweden.
Neither Vodafone Germany nor Vodafone UK have given a price yet but you can register at both carriers for further information.
UPDATE: O2 Germany just confirmed me that it will launch the Xperia X1 as well (no word yet from O2 UK). So Germans can select from at least two carriers.
