I think it would have been easier to ask, “who doesn’t want a Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1?” As Sony Ericsson’s Windows Mobile-powered, high-res touchscreen, sliding QWERTY superphone, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is quite possibly the most anticipated WinMo device that we’ve heard of to date. And, in a seeming effort to cash in on all the buzz surrounding the super slick smartphone that just oozes sexiness, a slew of online retailers are offering the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 for pre-order.
So, just how much couch-change are you going to need to scrounge to get a taste of the 3G’d goodness that is the XPERIA X1? Well, if you venture over to MobileCityOnline‘s corner of the internet, you’ll find the XPERIA X1 available for $999 – that’s $200 less than the $1199 retail price. Keep in mind that there is no official retail price set for the X1, not to mention any carrier-subsidized pricing. These retailers are just making up prices for better or worse.
And, as such, pre-order pricing on the X1 is like Britney Spears on a bad day – it’s all over the place. For instance, WirelessGalaxy wants you to believe that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is worth a whopping $1428 – discounted from their own special retail price of $1500.
Smart Mobile Gadgets has the X1 available for the super-specific price of $979.94. I guess these guys want to make sure that they clear their margins on the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 – even if no one really knows the retail price at this point.
Thankfully, there are retailers that seem to be putting their money on the high-end XPERIA handset weighing in with a lighter price-tag. The more reasonable end of the e-tailer spectrum shows CellHUT offering the X1 for just $699 – down from their retail price of $899. And, bringing up the bargain-basement side of things, Clove Technology is offering the X1 at a too-good-to-be-true price of just £395!
Right, so I think it’s safe to say that no one knows just how much the X1 is going to cost. As Sony Ericsson’s top-of-the-line offering, any device bearing the XPERIA brand should command a hefty price. If you want to hedge your bets, you might want to put in a pre-order for one of the bargain deals above. But, read the fine print… it might come back to bite you.
