Vodafone will launch the X10 in April

However, staff from Sony Ericsson’s online store apparently told website Mobile Today that the manufacturer will release the handset online in the UK on 1 March.

Sony Ericsson will stock the X10 exclusively for the first week of March before releasing the phone through “other channels”, the source added.
