In a blog post on their Xperiancers blog they admit the device will be coming â€œin the first weeks of Januaryâ€, blaming they delay on work in optimising battery life:
Hi All â€“ Over the last couple of weeks there has been a few, OK more than a few rumours that the X2 is going to be delayed until January and Iâ€™m sure it will not come as a surprise when we say that these are well founded.
The software worked fine but when we started integrating it with some of the network specific apps it threw up a few issues which weâ€™re working to fix.
Itâ€™s all minor tweaks really (extending the battery life and speeding up aspects of the software), but we want to be sure that when we ship this it is as good as it should be and that you donâ€™t have to constantly upgrade the software as we iron out these wrinkles.
Soâ€¦ weâ€™re launching first week of January. Really sorry if you were looking forward to getting hold of one before then but it will be worth it when we get there.
