The above sourced from local forum.  Seems like 3HK will be carrying the Sony Ericsson exclusively.  Rumours said they will be offering the price of HK$3,980 for old customers, the catch of course is a 18-month contract.  For higher service plan, the charge of the phone will be as low as HK$2,980.  The early releases are mostly the ones with English ROM.  Call your 3HK sales to find out more.

Another alternative is to get it from the local chain stores like Broadway or Fortress, but their prices as high as HK$6K+, Crazy.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Delayed

This from jkOnTheRun, “The Register is reporting from Berlin that a Sony Ericsson representative is saying that the X1 will debut in January of next year and that Windows Mobile 6.1 is the reason it’s not shipping now.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 on eBay

As seen on eBay, the going price now for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is US$950+US$60 (for shipping) for what I guess a prototype, or just a scam especially when the item is located somewhere in South Africa.  27 bids? what are those guys thinking really.
