Sony Ericsson unveiled the long-awaited XPERIA X1 phone will be released on September 30 but unfortunately it will only be in the UK, Germany and Sweden. Most other major markets will need to wait until Q4 2008 and a release date for North America is still unknown.
To start the countdown to the launch of XPERIA™ X1, Sony Ericsson will host a live global webcast on September 15 at 13:00 GMT + 1, offering viewers the first in-depth demonstration of the handset. The web cast will also premiere the first episode of an alternative reality thriller Johnny X.

“We are extremely pleased with the innovation and new user experience we have created for consumers on the XPERIA™ X1,” said Rikko Sakaguchi CVP and Head of Creation and Development at Sony Ericsson. “The in-depth demonstration on the web cast will showcase how this handset is truly unique. The nine panel eco system puts the user in total control of the primary experiences available on the phone and allows consumers to personalise the panel interface to suit their needs and lifestyle. The XPERIA™ X1 has the highest quality screen on the market, four-way navigation keys and optical joy stick to give a stressless browsing experience and, with its super fast processor and network speed the XPERIA™ X1 really bridges the gap between personal, entertainment and work mobile needs.”
