As we informed you last week, Motorola and Intel are hosting a joint event in London today, presumably to announce Moto’s first Intel-powered phone.

Now October seems likely.
It was over a month ago that Carphone Warehouse opened the registration page for Sony’s compact handset, the Xperia Miro, in the UK. Since then we’ve seen many Xperia devices, from low- to high-end, introduced at the consumer electronics trade show IFA 2012 in Berlin.

Expansys UK is offering the One X for £379.99 with free shipping, which is one heck of a deal for one heck of a phone. The £380 would translate into around $615 at today’s conversion rates, which might seem a lot for those of you reading us from the States, but that’s almost £200 less than the phone’s UK list price at the time of its release several months ago.
