hi, i work for belcompany in belgium its a chain of gsm/internet shop with over 125 shops in the benelux, my big boss had a meeting with our salesrep from SE, and he had the sad report that te p800 will only be available in belgium in february 2003 :(
that usually means it will be available about a month sooner for the uk

Your little SonyEricsson Rules is wrong, it should read, Sony Ericsson Sucks. :evil:
Hi, i'm from Belgium too... in what city are you working in that store?
I just heard from another store-seller that he was sure it would arrive in december, he just contacted SE himself. (store : ARC)
Let's cross our fingers! :-?

I've spoken to a T-Mobile rep (UK) and he claimed that the P800 was unlikely to be released in the UK this year. I don't know if he meant on T-Mobile or in general.
I have also spoken to a SonyEricsson rep, although this was admittetedly about 2 1/2 months ago. At the time his comments seemed misguided, but it was enough to make me buy a 7650. In retrospect he seems to have been talking from knowledge.
He had said that the P800 was very unlikely to be released this year in most of Europe. He wouldn't elaborate on prices or exact dates, but did say it would be priced between the 7650 and 9210i's initial launch prices. The closest marker of price currently being the POGO. The closest in terms of target market being the 02 XDA.
I spoke to him on the telephone, when organising staff training sessions between SonyEricsson & Comet stores. When SE did finally arrive last month, their rep's only had the T68i with them and didnt have a clue about the P800. :(
