On the one hand we love rumors and on the other we hate them – especially when they are as vague and unsourced as this latest one. The folks at MobileCrunch are saltily suggesting that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X3 – the company’s previously rumored first Android Phone – will launch in January 2010. They found this odd because they haven’t heard about the X2 launching before January and given the sequence the X2 should launch before the X3, right?
Well we had already seen the Xperia X2 set for Q4 2009 launch and just today learned the price could be $875 before discounts, calling further question to the rumor’s credibility. I really hope the X3 doesn’t approach this ballpark because I for one will not splurge for it – although I might like to – given the number of affordable Android alternatives that will be out there.
