Sony Japan has officially announced that it is delaying the release date of several BRAVIA NX800 series HDTV’s. The 40″ (KDL-40NX800) and 46″ (KDL-46NX800) models were due to be released in Sony’s home country on April 30th, but has now been pushed back. The 40″ will be released now on May 20th, and the 46″ will be released there on June 10th. We also noticed that the 46″ BRAVIA NX800 television will not ship in the USA until late May. According to Sony Japan, the reason for the delay is “the demand exceeded the original anticipated supply of key components.”

What’s truly odd is that the 52″ (KDL-52NX800) and 60″ (KDL-60NX800) NX800 models are shipping normally on SonyStyle USA. There have been several intense rumors that revolves around a faulty module on various 2010 Sony TV models but we have been assured by Sony that they are completely untrue. We sure hope so.
