And the crowd goes ‘finally’!  For months, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 had been rumored to be delayed.  Today, Sony Ericsson made its launch date official.  Don’t get too hopped up on touchscreen action, though, because they only announced the actual release date for the UK, Germany and Sweden, which is September 30, 2008.  The rest of Europe, APAC (Indonesia, Singapore, etc), Middle East, Africa, and Latin America got the proverbial Q4 window, while North America, Russia, China and Australia should expect it ‘in the coming months’; hold up, isn’t that Q4 too?

To kick off the Xperia X1′s official unveiling, Sony Ericsson will hold a live global webcast on September 15th at 13:00 GMT +1.  You can watch it here.  Also expect a reality thriller based around the phone called ‘Johnny X’ (makes me think of the Johnny Mnemonic film starring Keanu).

If you’re in London, you can see the launch at the Tent London which is part of London Design Week.  Starts September 19th.
