We reported last week that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 had surfaced on Expansys's website for the modest price of 604 British Pounds (about $1,000 U.S.). According the a report by Solapalmari, an Italian website, a Sony Ericsson senior executive who preferred to remain nameless has set the price point for the X2 somewhere between 590 and 600 Euro. That's in the 533 British Pound or $880 U.S. dollar neighborhood.
The Senior Executive's tip came via Facebook which presents several questions on credibility of the source. However, stranger things have happened and if accurate, the X2 still remains a tad on the pricey side and will struggle to compete with the HTC Touch Pro 2 who's price point is about 150 British Pounds less. For us in the U.S. market, there is always a chance the X2 will be picked up by a service provider and offered at a discounted price (along with the customary contract extension).
