I feel sorry for SE... They are going downhill.

Another failure before release.

It looked great at the first glance but the truth revealed that it isn't great. The processor is poor...Don't get excited about the 800x480 video, it is the bitrate and the format that makes the difference...3GP format is POOR and a 528 MHZ processor can't handle more than 1,5 Mbps video rate....

X1 was announced in Feb 08 and now after more than 1.5 years SE has announced something with barely new technology included with the same CPU! Unbelievable! I could not imagine they would send such a disappointing device to the market, specially with so many powerful phones already announced or will be announced in next couple of weeks/months. Unless they are planning to surprise us all with a possible X3 I am starting to lose my belief in them.

so, they had to order their products from other manufacturers.

that's why they always late.

Sigh... The same processor as the x1? There goes the hope of having a 600 or 800mhz processor!! Too bad by the time this device comes out to the market there will already be other HTC or Samsung Winmo devices with the same or even better specs...

Come on SE, put new energizers in your people and get back in the game!!

very nice hardware design and user interface... i hope they release it in Q3 of this year... c'mon people if you don't like the phone go get other phones, no one's asking you to buy it and stop bashing it just because you hate the brand.

God dammit! Why'd they go and use the same CPU? It was laggy in the X1!

Bloody 'ell. Well. I guess it's either the Satio or I wait for the X3. That Samsung i8910 is lookin' good, too. Bah. I don't know.

like always SE is too late in bringing innovation if compared to its rivals.
