The W995a should be available starting July 6, with “pre-sale items available on or about 06/29/2009.”
Unfortunately, the Walkman flagship phone has a pretty steep price: it will retail for $599.99, unlocked.
Apparently, there won’t be any US carrier to offer the handset, so if you really want it you’ll have no choice but to buy it at this price.

- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
