Xperia Pro Not Shipping in UK Until Late Sept
For those over here in the United Kingdom that may have had their eyes on picking up the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro smartphone soon, unfortunately you are still in for somewhat of a wait before you can get your mitts on the handset as it’s not shipping in the UK soon.
According to the guys over at Engadget, the official Sony Ericsson UK store is now listing the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro availability as “late September,” however the SIM free pricing for the Android device remains the same at Â£349.99, which is roughly $558.
Spec wise the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro offers the user a 3.7-inch capacitive touch screen, a slide out QWERTY keyboard for the heavy texter of course, 8 megapixel rear facing auto-focus camera with LED flash and 720p video, VGA front facing camera, Mobile Bravia Engine, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, 320MB internal memory, microSD expansion up to 32GB and a 3.5mm jack.
Unfortunately though there is no word on just why the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro release in the United Kingdom has been delayed until that late September timeframe.
Although if you have been hanging on for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro to come out to play and now don’t wish to wait that extra couple of months to get your hands on the device you could of course always opt for one of the other Xperia smartphone out there such as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play or Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, or even the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo perhaps in red.
Or of course if you imply must have the Android Gingerbread toting Xperia Pro because of that QWERTY keyboard then it looks like you’ll just have to hang on in there and hope that Sony Ericsson doesn’t delay the handsets release further when late September rolls around.
I know it can be somewhat disappointing when you expect to see the smartphone you want become available at a certain time, but as is the way with things in the mobile space, sometimes devices get delayed even if the maker doesn’t say why, nothing you can do about it other than wait or pick an alternative device, so will you be moving to another handset because of the delay?
