UNCONFIRMED: Does the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 faces the Xperia-typical delay?

While nothing is confirmed yet, Sony Ericsson just updated its German mobile phone page and mentions, that the "Xperia X10 is available in 3 month" which would mean an early Q2-2010 release! Back in November, the Xperia X10's availability was announced for Q1-2010. However, this delay would be in sync with Rogers recent announcement that the Canadian carrier will launch the Sony Xperia X10 in the second quarter 2010. That's definitely bad news for Sony Ericsson which, for some reasons, wasn't able to launch its Windows Mobile Xperia smartphones in a timely manner first and now Sony Ericsson's first Android Xperia smartphone seems to face the same destiny.

On the other hand, this delay could mean that Sony Ericsson will ship the Xperia X10 with Android 2.1/Eclair, rather than the announced Android 1.6/Donut version which would be - at time of the launch - pretty outdated anyway, even if Sony Ericsson seems to do a great job with its own user interface and services.

There's no official confirmation available from Sony Ericsson, if a release in 3 months mean early Q2-2010 or late Q1-2010.
