I notice that Sony Ericsson now have the XPERIA X1 featured on their NZ website. This begs the question, which month will it be released in NZ?

I'd love to know too, been following the handset for quite a while now. Did you see the video on GSM arena? Still looks horrible laggy, the WM OS looks pretty bad; hoping they sort out the speed some more before release. Otherwise a wonderfully featured and aesthetically stunning phone.

I'm guess middle of next year ?But then again they might not release it because Nokia N82 is a upper end model which they never release

X1 should be out by the end of this year overseas .

I don't recommend waiting for vodafone to release it because 1) they will be overprice 2) it'll be lock to the vodafone network

Windows OS is horrible.I recommend symbian instead

It is due out this year, late in the year I expect, as you say ninjabear.

Vodafone usually has a around a 6 month lag time on handset releases, if they release the handset at all. Would be really nice if Vodafone had an "upcoming releases" section in their website for new phones currently being approved.

I loved this phone from the minute I saw it! I wasn't until I just reread the specs that I realised it's quad band GSM + quad band UMTS! That makes it the ultimate worldphone!

Unfortunately there are 2 UMTS models - 850, 1700, 1900 and 2100 and the other 900, 1700, 1900 and 2100. It's a shame there is no 850+900 in the same device.

Yep, how could you not love that gorgeous arc-slider... Beautiful.

If they can work out the speed issues then this could be my first WM phone...

It is only a prototype model remember, I'm sure the production model will be a darn sight swifter.

It doesn't really ring my bells... theres plenty more other stuff on the horizon I'm looking forward to.

A Handango newsletters seems to indicate the release in mid-September 2008 - this is not the NZ release though.

Ah, I was just going to post this - I saw it at Engadget.

Regarding the speed issues - I'm not entirely convinced they'll sort it out (or at least, not to my satisfaction). The handset doesn't sport any 3D acceleration, so when it comes to graphics and gaming performance its not likely to be stellar.

Yes, I think it'll be fair to say that the price will indeed be OUCH!
