Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro may not arrive until Q4
It was originally believed the Android-powered smartphone would hit the shelves in Q2. This wouldn’t be the first of Sony’s products to see delays and supply shortages due to the tsunami tragedy.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro features a 3.7-inch capacitive display, is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has a fairly large four-row, slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
There are also some rumors floating around that this device was delayed due to an impending update of the Android software to version 2.3.4. However, other sources are quick to refute that rumor and point back to the tsunami.
Fortunately for those who like what Sony Ericsson does with their smartphones, Q4 is only a few months away if it really has been pushed back that far. The question is, can you be patient until then? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

More phones need slide out keyboards like this instead of wasting the screen with them

I'm all for large high end touchscreen phones with slideout keyboards. The Epic has really been very lonely until the Droid 3 came out.

Wtf can't AT&T pick up a phone like this? Why do they hate smartphone side sliders so much?
