Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Delayed Until Late July

Sony Ericsson has delayed the launch of the highly awaited Xperia Pro smartphone to the end of July.

The company had earlier revealed on its web store that the Android-based slider smartphone would be launched in June. Sony Ericsson had even started taking pre-orders for the device.

However, an article on Mobot has revealed that the company’s web store has changed the launch date of the device to late July.

Product delays have practically come to be synonymous with the company, with even the company's flagship devices the Xperia Play and Xperia Arc missing their initial launch dates.

The company is offering the smartphone for £349.99 for those who don’t mind the long wait. The smartphone, which runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, comes with a 3.7 inch touchscreen which has a 854 x 480 resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a slide out Qwerty keyboard, front camera, a back facing 8 Mega Pixel camera, memory expandable up to 32GB, 3G and Wi-Fi support.

The Xperia Pro smartphone also comes with the Sony Ericsson Timescape user interface and the Facebook Inside Xperia app.

The company is expected to reveal carrier information and the exact release dates by the end of this month, as long as they don't face any more production delays.
