Sony Ericsson XPeria X1 Price: Php42,500

In an email by Sony Ericsson today, the new Sony Ericsson XPeria X1 phone will be coming out to the public tomorrow in stores but people who made early reservations are supposed to get their own units today. The retail price — a cool Php42,500.

It took a while for Sony Ericsson to finally release the suggested retail price as there have been huge fluctuations in peso-dollar exchange rates in the past several weeks.

To those who made early reservations, you may proceed to the Sony Ericsson shop you selected during registration.

    DJ – That is exactly (like really) what i have in mind! same E71 phone and a decent netbook! HAHAHA

  3. Whoah! I suppose my father would have second thoughts about getting this phone this Christmas now that it carries that price tag. ;)

  4. Wow! Isn’t that a bit too much?

    That’s already a Thinkpad R-Series, brand new.

    or two Neo Basic laptops. :)

    or 4 Blue H1 Netbooks.

    or 3 Acer Aspire Ones.


    But yeah, Sony Ericsson is Sony Ericsson.

  5. Got the same text message. I sent my regrets though – it’s too expensive for that phone. I’d rather get 2 blackberry phones! haha

    DJ and James> And that’s exactly what I did. ;) I reserved an XPERIA X1 as well, but as soon as I caught wind that that it will be in the 45K range, I chose to go the other route. And it’s been worth it.

  7. Pretty expensive, but i still want it :)

  8. Never a fan of SE.

  9. hmm.. for my debut, my dad’s askin me if what phone i would like, is this xperia good? i mean, is it not to complicated?

  10. sony ericsson is sony ericsson.

    thus, that price tag. the key is not to such a jerk with the sole objective of “being the first to own it!”

    the key is to wait. wait for the right time when you can actually afford the phone, while it still hasn’t lost its “glamour” in owning one just yet. 2 or 3 months maybe?

    and you don’t just “want” an expensive, full-featured business phone just like that. operative word: business.

    i just got my Xperia this morning.

  11. i got my xperia this morning..hehehe
