Edit: True, the UK, Germany and Sweden get the X1 on Sept. 30. Everyone else has to wait a little longer. Curse these early morning press releases! Thanks Lovsten for straightening us out!

  • I'm in UK. I am using a Touch Pro at the moment, and I find the keyboard pretty stiff, and the keys quite small. Maybe the keyboard deficit the Xperia has is not such a big deal after all.
  • If you read the press release it's actually only Germany, UK and Sweden that will get the X1 at Sept. 30.
    The rest listed will get it during Q4 2008.
    Lucky me. I live in Sweden :)
