Carriers refuse to sell the XPERIA X2 and N97 mini in the UK
It was in the middle of December 2009 when we first reported the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 would be delayed until the first week of January 2010, due to the extra time needed for additional tests of its software plagued by various bugs. Well, the handset has already rolled out and can be bought for about 490 EUR now. It seems the hold-up was the final straw for Vodafone, the carrier that was supposed to sell the device in the UK and have exclusive rights on its distribution across the country. The Telecom has no intention to offer the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 anymore, since "the device is no longer integral part of the planned product portfolio".

Other major UK carrier, Orange, has suspended its sales of the Nokia N97 mini. According to unofficial sources, the reason behind the decision is none other but the great number of returned units and customer complaints about various problems. Orange, of course, offers customer support to people who have purchased the N97 Mini, but the device is no longer available in the carrier´s retail network.
