January-Bound XPERIA X2 to Cost An Arm and Leg?

When Sony Ericsson unveiled the XPERIA X2 earlier this month, the company seemed pretty certain that it would arrive sometime in the fourth quarter. Expansys UK, on the other hand, has a different idea. It's confidently tagged the X2 with a release date of January 11, 2010, at £604.99, which translates to a whopping $1000 on the other side of the pond. Sure enough, goods are priced a little differently in the UK, but if you consider that the Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2 are priced at £374.99 and £489.99 respectively, the X2's asking price is a fair bit to munch on. Now, we're not quite sure if Sony Ericsson's pricing strategy is set in stone, but either way, we wish the folks there all the best in getting this beast in the hands of consumers. Surely they can do better with it than they did with the X1, right? Right?
