Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo (& others) delayed

imageWe recently reported that the Sony Ericsson Neo was due to arrive on the 19th Arpil.

We published this information on good faith, but since this post, there has been discussion of delays and we have now had official confirmation from Sony Ericsson that the Neo will not be launched until July in the UK market.

This confirms this report that comes from Sony Ericsson Italy (via Xperia Blog)

The reason?

Disruption to the supply chain as a result of the disaster in Japan.  They are working to find alternative supply solutions, but at this time, July is the earliest release date that Sony Ericsson wish to commit too.

The situation could change, but they have taken this action to in the long term improve the supply rather than having an unstable launch of the Neo with poor stock.

Arc & PLAY affected too

The supply of the Arc and PLAY are too going to be affected by the supply issue.  Sony Ericsson will be doing all they can to limit the impact but there will be an impact and stock will be in very short supply over the coming weeks.

We shall keep you up to date with the situation as and when we have more news.
