The handset manufacturer has not officially announced the release date for the X10, other than to say it will arrive in the first quarter of next year. On Monday, Sony Ericsson refused to confirm the information published on its own website.

The device was first announced at the start of November. Sony Ericsson's first handset to use Google's open-source mobile operating system, the X10 will also come with the manufacturer's own custom user interface.
