Hong Kong and Taiwan are the first to get the Xperia U and Xperia sola, the first two Sony dual-core mid-range droids. The Xperia U got pushed back from the original May 7 launch date in the UK, but whatever the issues that caused it were, they didn’t affect launch in the two Asian countries.
In Hong Kong, the Sony Xperia U will set you back HK$2,498 (€246, $320), while its price in Taiwan is NT$9,900 (€259, $337). That's about as much as the phone is expected to in Europe (£204, € 260, $338).
The Sony Xperia sola which packs more features (like tracking your fingers at a distance) is pricier - Hong Kong residents can grab it for HK$2,998 (€295, $383), while people in Taiwan will have to shell out NT$10,900 (€285, $370). Those prices are for the White and Black color versions, with the red one expected to arrive later on.
Taiwan can also look forward to the Sony Xperia P, which should arrive some time in May for NT$13,800 (€360, $468). Mid-May is also when Europe (aside from the UK that is) should expect the Xperia P and U to land.
