> In reply to Sina™ @ 2008-02-23 10:20 from TuEH - click to readI use W950 and play lot of games on it. Its a UIQ3 phone and I have emulators like Picodrive, vBag and ScummVM in it. I can play Genesis, GBA and some adventure games on scumm + standalone like RTMI and Atlantis. I love my phone but it will blind my eyes soon as the screen is just 2.6".

So I am definitely going to buy S.E.X1 when it arrives.

I just wish it runs all the emulators smoothly and Syberia for PPC. I am sceptical its reolution 800x400 might give problem but time will tell...

u can operate a symbian phone with one hand too . . .
true, not anyone can tweak win mobile for best performance because not everyone is a GEEK . . .
WindowsMobile is indeed a lite version of windows, hence the name windows "MOBILE" . . .
PDA phones are for business oriented persons, if i want games, a PSP would be the ideal portable device or a laptop . . .
i am of course aware that there are lots of software available for windows. . .
but, how many bugs are there too?
how many virus?
how many worms?
how many trojans and what have you?

please dont get me wrong, im a windows user, just dont like the idea of also constantly making sure that my phone is fully functional. It is after all, a MOBILE PHONE!

Oh yeah and all you xperia x1 fans may wonder how sony ericsson made such a great device, I know I did. Could it be because htc (the world's leading manufacturer of WM devices) made it for them? I don't know, but check out this link and decide for yourself.

Regardless of what anyone says, Windows Mobile is the most capable and expandable OS available for mobile devices. Sorry, this is a fact. That should answer the question of iPhone vs xperian. However, if features mean everything no mobile device compares with the htc advantage x7510. Xperian just as good? Obviously you've never enjoyed a large (let's say 5") VGA screen before. The advantage x7510 will replace my laptop, pocket pc, and cellphone. For that I can handle wearing it on my hip rather than carrying it in my pocket.

HTC Advantage X7510 is a monster in Pocket PC world.
HTC Advantage X7510 is a lite laptop.

apart from the bigger screen, the design, the os, the gps receiver and the fact that its hsdpa the p1 is just as good
to be honest for the size and weight id rather have the p1 over the x1
i dont quiet understand why people are getting that excited over this phone its nothing new

Looks kinda like a P1, except for the sliding qwerty board and the os.

If you can use WM with one finger on one hand, you're quite a pro, no arguments there. Not everyone is though and you need to remember that. The games size that you mention is simply due to inadequate coding processes (ala Windows). Also please don't try and downplay how much software is developed for Symbian - sales exceed WM by a long way.

i like the features of this phone, and i have one doubt is that this phone has only 65k colours, is it enough to play clear divx movies?
