Xperia X2 delay confirmed

delayed We posted about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 delay a few weeks ago, and the company has finally come around to officially admitting it.

In a blog post on their Xperiancers blog they admit the device will be coming “in the first weeks of January”, blaming they delay on work in optimising battery life:

Hi All – 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 I’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 we’re working to fix.

It’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 don’t have to constantly upgrade the software as we iron out these wrinkles.

So… we’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.

With devices such as the LG eXpo and HTC HD2 making the smartphone appear rapidly obsolete, one wonders if anyone will really be around left to care.
