Ha', with that price, they'll be lucky to push 10,000 units here iN the US (compared to the price of the iPhone, G1, and Pro)! They must want $100 dollars for every month we had to wait! Why Sony? iF iDo get this sometime next month, iT'll be the "only" thing iGet myself for X-mas. Pick this one up AT&T/T-Mobile...

I'll bet you will get it in the US before it gets widely available here in Germany (unbranded Version). We have a massive lack of Xperias over here!

EFF THAT. That price tag? What IS Sony thinking? If they ARE thinking...at all!

I'm going to wait a year or a few years until it's at least $399 or if it's picked up by AT&T AT THE MOST!

I love this phone, I won't lie. But I have to see my wallet and plan my future with that kind of money too.

Jesus! I can pay off a semester with that much at a community college! (Which I'm currently enrolled in...)

Any donations welcome though :P

Damn it. Way too expensive. Looks like I'll be holding onto my Treo just a little bit longer... Maybe I'll get this on Ebay if it goes down to like $600.

Damn it Sony. Damn it AT&T.

Out of interest, how much is an HTC Touch Pro unlocked in the States?

For comparison, in the UK a Touch Pro is 479.99 (RRP 549.99) from play.com and the X1 is also 479.99 (RRP 599.99).

You can get an X1 for free on a 45/month contract (18months)
You can get a G1 for free on a 40/month contract (18months)
You can get an 8GB iPhone for free on a 45/month contract (18months)
(couldn't find a Touch Pro on contract unfortunately)

So in real terms the prices are very similar.

Maybe the way to do this is to become a new subscriber and buy a heavily subsidized phone, move the sim to the x1, and then sell the subsidized phone on ebay to recoup some of the x1 cost. Any reason this wouldn't work?

That should work. The HTC Fuze is probably a good choice, which is only about $299.99 subsidized . You should be able to sell it for $500, giving you $200 off the X1a.

You could do the ebay thing but there are going to be so many people doing that...it'd be hard to find a buyer haha.

@Bad
Where is it like that, contract wise? Sweden? If so, you suck if you have the Xperia. :P (JK)



Screw you Sony. You don't scratch my back, I won't scratch yours!
