Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Slides Back to Late July
Pre-orders for Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Pro in the UK went live at the beginning of the month. Initially, it looked like the smartphone might actually show up this month, but estimations were quickly revised for July, instead. Now there’s news of additional delays, with the Xperia Pro not expected to arrive until the very end of July.
Sony Ericsson has updated its UK-based web store, which now shows the Xperia Pro as “Available late JULY”. Hopefully that will be the last of the revisions to the phone’s launch date, but with the way it’s been steadily creeping back, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it slide a little further before Sony Ericsson locks-in a date.
Pre-orders remain open for the Xperia Pro, which is selling for the equivalent of about $575. The QWERTY slider runs a 1GHz Snapdragon, has a 3.7-inch Bravia-powered 854 x 480 display, and sports both eight-megapixel rear and two-megapixel front cameras. The Android will ship running Gingerbread.
