Previously rumored for release on February 10th, it looks like the highly anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 could beat that launch date by nearly a month. is pegging the release date of the Xperia X10 for January 18th 2010. is a UK-based retailer so it's still unclear when (or if ever) the Xperia X10 will hit the States. Only our friends across the pond are guaranteed to enjoy.

However, for those interested in getting one of these puppies, it'll run you nearly $863. Even though the Xperia X10 packs Snapdragon and a 8 megapixel camera it's still insanely priced but hey, when you buy unlocked phones you have to deal with ridiculousness. On the bright side, your good money buys you a great color option, 'Sensuous Black'.
