Voordat iedereen naar de winkel rent. Bedenk wel dat deze datum alleen geldt voor Zweden, Duitsland en Engeland.

Maar, op de kop af zeven maanden na de aankondiging van de X1 XPERIA in Barcelona, heeft Sony Ericsson dan eindelijk een officiele release datum bekend gemaakt.

Het slechte nieuws is dus dat hij de eerste weken (of maanden) alleen in de drie bovengenoemde landen te koop zal zijn, maar het goede nieuws is dat er in Q4 nog 32 landen volgen en daarbij staat ook Nederland.

Daarmeer komt dus eindelijk ook een einde aan alle speculatie en geruchten over uitstel, afstel en andere fabeltjes over de X1 die we de afgelopen maanden de revue hebben zien passeren (zie ook de gerelateerde berichten hieronder)
