Ever since Sony Ericsson took the wraps off its first Windows Mobile smartphone in February, people have been eagerly awaiting this high-end device. Although its manufacturer has been vague about when this model will be released, one of the companies involved in the development has spilled the beans.

The online software retailer Handango has sent an email to its developers that tells them… and the world… when this smartphone will debut. The latest Handango Developer Newsletter says “The Xperia X1 will launch in mid-September 2008″.

Previously, Sony Ericsson had only said this model would be available in the second half of this year.
