Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 slips back to 2010

When the rumor mill was still churning in full force over the Xperia X2, one thing seemed to be popping up fairly consistently: a January 2010 launch date. It seemed pretty solid.

When Sony Ericsson made the handset official, however, they proclaimed that it wouldn’t ship in 2010, but sometime in the fourth quarter of 2009. Fingers were crossed, and breaths were held – alas, it’s not going to happen.

In what is either a big fit of miscommunication or a nasty coincidence, Sony Ericsson has just disclosed that the Windows Mobile 6.5-powered XPERIA X2 will ship in January 2010 after all. There’s still no word on a release date for the Android-powered XPERIA X10, but it’s looking like Sony Ericsson will be launching the two handsets in quick succession – just like we said they would.
