Tsunami Makes Waves at Sony Ericsson Concerning Xperia Neo Phone

If you haven't managed to get your hands on the dangerously limited supply of Xperia Neo phones then I've got some more bad news for you. The phone that all Sony fanboys are salivating over will need to wait longer than intended to have their drool wiped off its pristine screen. The recent tsunami has made waves at Sony's factories in the land of the rising sun. This means that if the metaphorical sun in your life was the Xperia Arc, Xperia Play or Xperia Neo phones then QQ. The Xperia Neo was hit the hardest with its major released pushed back from end Q1 or early Q2 next year to Q3 at the earliest.

Xperia Neo has already been introduced to the marketplace in limited quantities. However, due to supply chain disruptions resulting from the situation in Japan, we have shifted the timing of Xperia neo's broader launch and it is now planned for early third quarter.

Sony also expects this to adversely affect sales on all product lines but lets face it, they are already used to losing hundreds of millions on the PS3 so this shouldn't be a big deal. Besides they have bigger things to worry about, like suing GeoHot for jailbreaking the PS3. Why not sue the tsunami while they're at it?

This raises another interesting question. Who or what did more damage to Sony, GeoHot or the tsunami? Give us your answers in the comment section below and hit the break to see the Xperia Neo in action.
