Sony Ericsson Xperia gets a price reports that online retailer has released a pre-order price for the much anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia X1. Clove will be taking pre-orders at the wallet-sapping price of £439 ($780) excluding VAT, £515.83 with the tax included.

This is slightly more expensive than its main competitor, the HTC Touch Pro, which is retailing for £429 ($762 ,£504.08 with VAT). For either devices, unless you are really dedicated, waiting for carrier-subsidized models are recommended.

If you just cant wait, the device is expected to be in online stores sometime next week.
