No Xperia X2 in the UK

Despite the UK launch party and press events (which we attended) we’ve now heard that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 will NOT be sold through official channels in the UK. We already know that Vodafone have decided to drop the X2 as the delays in launching the device meant that it no longer fit in with their current or planned portfolio. I read that as meaning that it clashes with their iPhone launch!


So the official response from Sony Ericsson is:


Sony Ericsson can confirm that the X2 will not be released by Vodafone in the UK. The delivery date of the product has slipped due to extended testing and the product, which was exclusive to Vodafone in the UK, no longer fits within their planned portfolio. The handset is available in other Sony Ericsson markets however. Sony Ericsson is disappointed not to make this phone available to consumers in the UK but in 2010 the company will be offering a number of innovative, stand-out products in the market.


I know that the X2 was not our favourite handset when it came to the review but I still think it’s a bit of a shame as quite a number of you were patiently waiting for this handset!
