Putting to rest rumours that the Xperia X2 will cost up to 800 Euros (around $1200), Solapalmari was able to confirm with a Sony Ericsson senior executive the device will ion fact be between 590 and 600 Euro (around $880). This is on the high end of previous estimates which placed it between 500 and 600 Euro, but not unexpected.
It does price the device a bit higher than its most direct competitor, the HTC Touch Pro 2, currently sells for â‚¬449,99, but then the Touch Pro 2 does lack the 8 megapixel camera with dual flash of the X2, 3.5mm headphone jack and of course the Sony Ericsson name. Its other competitor, the Samsung Omnia Pro, has not been priced yet.
