Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 coming to the US on Black Friday
Finally, the long-awaited Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 has a launch date in the United States: November 28th.  Commonly known as Black Friday, the date is a perfect entry into the busy holiday season, and ends the rumors about the device being launched next year.  Just to recap, the phone offers Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional,

a 480x800 display, and a 3.2 megapixel camera, with GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA 850/1900/2100 MHz support. The XPERIA will be available for pickup at a Sony Electronics outlet, the SonyStyle website, or an authorized retailer for a cool $799.99.

So, while your significant other is purchasing clothes and the like on the busiest shopping day of the year, you can be resting on the bench outside of the store, enjoying your new toy!

$799?!?!?!?!?!? Not for me.. :P

do they honestly think that the average consumer is going to have 799 dollars laying around??

If you have problems with the price, don't purchase the phone. Plain and simple. That is a good price compared to other places where it has been sold upwards of $900. So, please, stop complaining.

That is absolutely not a "GOOD PRICE" ha ha.... I have a bridge to sell you, give me your email address and Ill send you the details! Very very good deal!!!

Compared to the $949 price on, $799 is a "relatively" good price (i.e. a savings of $150). I get your point though.... $799 is still high, but it's a nonsubsidized price. If you were to buy the Blackberry Storm, Touch Pro, or iPhone without a carrier contract, you'd be paying close to that price too.

799.99, take it or leave it. if it doesnt sell its on them to do whatever they want with the price. theres a lot of competition out there. lots of good phone, and when the holiday season comes around expect even more phones. that phones sounds pretty cool, so if its 799.99, who the hell cares!!!!

yeah 800 dollars is too much.... i could get 2 iphone for that price

And 2 contracts, no contracts here, just a free and clear phone.

The Point IS that if they want this phone to SELL GOOD ESPECIALLY ON BLACK FRIDAY it just may have to go Down $100 or So because 799.99 is way more with taxes and that is not a GOOD BLACK FRIDAY PRICE !!!!

799 for a phone that in reviews says the so called panel interface is laggy forget it

Not only is the panel laggy the camera is as well. Three second shutter response time....that won't work. I'll wait for the first firmware update and a price reduction. In fairness, the HTC Diamond had the same initial issues but they got it straightened out and its pretty good device for in the $550 range unlocked.

800 bucks, 4get about it!

why does $7.99 confuse you people, ofcourse it is that expensive, its a brand new touch screen phone, with a qwerty keypad, a 3.2 megapixel camera. WITHOUT a contract, if it was carrier available, it would be cheaper.

13. unregistered

actually, if it was $7.99 it would be cheap. but its $799.99 dumb ass!
