Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 available for pre-order, rumors hint at mid-September launch


If you’ve got almost a thousand bucks burning a hole in your pocket and you want to get a head start on ordering up that Xperia X1 by Sony Ericsson, why not head over to and pre-order one? Rumors are also beginning to swirl about a mid-September launch. What a great way to make friends at your new school!

It’s going for $999 with an initial $100 off and the phone is unlocked. Unlocked! Compatible networks include T-Mobile, AT&T/Cingular, Cellular One, and various Asian and European carriers.

Far be it for me to tell you what to do with your money but if it were me, I’d probably just wait until September-time. There might just be even COOLER phones out by then, although each time I’ve seen the Xperia rotating in a glass case at a convention like a digitally rotisserie chicken, I’ve wondered if it might be the right kind of phone for a guy like me. I don’t know if I’d pre-order it that far in advance, though.
