Xperia acro S UK release looking unlikely

UK fans looking forward to the 4.3-inch Xperia acro S with its water and dust resistant features may be in for a disappointment. Whilst the Xperia acro S is pegged for a global release the omens don’t bode well for a UK launch.

Whilst browsing the Sony Mobile website earlier today we came across the UK product page for the Xperia acro S. This in our minds cemented the fact that it would be coming to the UK. However, over the last hour or so the product page has disappeared completely, with only the Xperia go listed as coming soon.

When we poised this question to Sony Mobile PR this morning, this is what they had to say: “The UK announcement is only for the go. No plans to release the Acro S here at this stage.” At that stage we just thought maybe a formal UK announcement will come later. However, in light of the above evidence, it now seems that the handset will not be coming to UK shores at all.

This would be a shame especially as there are very few higher-end water resistant Android smartphones out there. It also does make us wonder exactly which regions will be getting this handset, considering it is meant to see a global launch.
