The Sony Ericsson Z1 (Playstation Phone) will hit retail in March 2011 according to sources at ITProPortal. This wouldn’t come as a surprise as it’s broadly the same period during which the Xperia X10 launched earlier this year. It is believed the phone will be shown off at the MWC show in Barcelona in February and CeBIT 2011 in early March.
However, what is not known is when the phone will be officially announced. It sounds like Sony Ericsson has learned their lesson from the Xperia X10 when it was forced to announce the phone earlier after a number of leaks. Despite the same happening this time round with the Playstation Phone and ANZU, it seems as if SE is hanging tight until they can announce the handsets under their own terms.
