The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 rolls out with a price tag of $880?
The information about the price of the second Windows phone comes from the guys behind a website called SoloPalmari. They seem to have successfully contacted a member of Sony Ericsson´s management team via Facebook and he stated the XPERIA X2 was coming out with a price tag of $880 (590-600 EUR). We believe the price is justified, given all the high-tech features the handset will come packed with. Still, its major rivals, the HTC Touch Pro2 and Samsung OmniaPRO B7610 are cheaper in Europe, which would probably make quite a few people ask themselves if they truly need an 8-megapixel camera. Whether ot not the XPERIA X2 is worth what the manufacturer asks for it is something that we will tell you when we have managed to get our hands on a final, retail unit. Until then, take a look at our full text preview available via the link below.

I just don't get why this phone should cost so much more than for example a N97, or a N900, it just doesn't make sense and I don't see anything in the spec sheet which would permit SE to charge such a premium. I would understand if the X2 had an organic LED display or similar innovative technology, but it's alot of money to ask for a device that is actually playing it safe and not that creative.
