If you were hoping to get your hands on a Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro this quarter, it looks like it’s not going to happen.
Sony Ericsson has reportedly confirmed to SoMobile that the Xperia Pro will not hit the market until the fourth quarter of the year.
Furthermore, The Carphone Warehouse says the handset will be shipped in October.
However, Sony Ericsson UK’s official online shop still lists the Xperia Pro as being available starting this month. But they probably didn’t get the chance to update the website.
I’ve checked out the Xperia Pro back in February at MWC 2011 – when it was officially announced – and I can tell you that it’s definitely a smartphone to consider if you’re looking for a new QWERTY device (of course, no one will blame you if you can’t wait ‘till October). Keyboards aside, the features of the Xperia Pro are similar to the ones of the Xperia Neo: Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 3.7 inchFWVGA display, 8MP autofocus camera, and so on.
In other Sony Ericsson news, the recently announced TXT Pro (which isn’t a smartphone) will cost about €120 in Europe. At least that’s what Amazon Germany suggests, as it has priced the phone at €117 (with no mention on when it will launch it).
