American Xperia X1 delay

Americans should not expect to Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 smartphone anytime soon, according to indications. Best Buy is said to have changed the online status of the phone from "Pre-Order" to "Coming Soon," and Sony's own Sony Style website has moved the release date to January 12th of next year. Those who have already pre-ordered through Best Buy are reportedly being sent multiple e-mails, warning of stock delays. The phone has been on sale in Europe since the end of September.

The reason for the postponement is unknown, but Sony Ericsson ran into parts shortages at launch, which may have persisted through subsequent months. A large shipment quantity could be important for the X1, which is widely perceived as a rival to the Apple iPhone due to its unique touchscreen interface and slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Sony Ericsson first announced the phone in February of this year.
