It'll hit the streets in the UK, Germany and Sweden then, followed by many other countries throughout the remainder of 2008. To "start the countdown" SE will be launching a live global webcast on September 15 at 1PM London time, demonstrating the handset's fucntions. That's fab news, and confirms that rumor the phone would go on sale this year... just not in the US. Dates for North America and other countries will be out "in the coming months" apparently.
