Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 to be delayed until January 2010

04 December, 2009

We don't know what kind of curse has been put on Sony Ericsson but troubles at the company just don't end. The latest information that we received states that their Windows Mobile flagship X2 will be delayed until January 2010.

After the suspension of the Sony Ericsson Satio sales in the UK and the touchscreen issues that the Aino had, the XPERIA X2 was the company last hope for the Christmas shopping spree.

According to the Vodafone website however it will only be available in January, when the market is certainly not going to be as favorable. It will then be joined by the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 in the struggle to keep the Swedish-Japanese company on its feet but we suspect it might be a bit too late.

With everyone waiting for a host of new announcements at the MWC in Februrary, Q1 is certainly not the best time to try and sell your flagships. Granted, most new handsets won't come to the market until at least Q2 but in the high-end mobile phones segment sometimes users are willing to wait a little if they're promised better bang for their buck.

Sony Ericsson have obviously forgotten their lesson from the the late release of the original X1 and the Satio.
