IDG News Service reports today that Sony Ericsson isn't shipping as many units of its HTC manufactured Xperia X1 Windows Mobile smartphone as originally planned. According to Sony Ericsson, the manufacturing delays were caused by a lack of certain materials which hardest hits Sweden, Germany and the U.K. since the Xperia X1 was initially launched in this three countries. Sony Ericsson's Nordic public-relations manager Gustaf Brusewitz confirmed IDG News Service that more phones are expected to go on sale in Sweden in the next couple of days followed by more shipments which are also expected in the U.K. and Germany during the next couple of weeks.

However, Brusewitz declined to comment on which materials are causing the problems but more people have been assigned to the project now to reduce the delays, he said, again declining to give further details.

Nevertheless, plans to sell the Xperia X1 in other countries won't be affected by the initial launch country delays, despite the initial shortage of phones, according to Brusewitz. It will still go on sale as planned in European countries such as Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy and Norway, and also Asian markets such as Singapore and Hong Kong and Sony Ericsson still plans to launch the phone in other markets, including the U.S., during November.
