iPhone is so successful because Apple has totally ignored mobile operators, that by now were the main customers for phone manufacturers, and instead Apple has focused 100% on needs of end users. Mobile operators were "masters of the universe" and were not only bringing mobile phone manufacturers to the knees (for example: Sharp was forced in Japan by NTT DoCoMo to hide their brand under the battery) but also were simply forcing manufacturers to cancel some phones with useful features. manufacturers were dividing customers into segments and then these manufacturers were trying to release phones that address particular segment - instead of having holistic approach. after several years of claiming the contrary, that in reality Nokia has no idea at all about making software - the most important part of contemporary smartphones. He also reveals that even Nokia (that owns Symbian), itself admits that the only Symbian enthusiasts are those paid (bribed) by Nokia. Nokia even said literally: "Pretty much the only community around [Symbian] S60 is the community we pay to be there". In other words: not only Windows Mobile ecosystem is dwindling but the ecosystem of Symbian is practically dead.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2009winmo is better than symbian
:))) may be! :)
For the rest us - no!
ATT the largest US provider announced months ago not to carry any ! phone with WinMo!
SE switched to Symbian - see Idou!
WinMo is a total failure.
and for some reason X1 is having more problems to run WinMo than other models.
but, if you like it - stick with it! :)))
I think the main function of any phone is to make /receive calls.
X1 has some serious problems with call drops / reception problems.
WinMo is not to be proud of :))))

Try to read vodafone forum, they make it like that on purpose. TO GET YOUR MONEY. the only way to avoid this is by debranding your xperia. search that in xda-developers forum if you want to debrand it. However, please be aware that it will void your warranty.

The 5800 better than the X1. Men you made my day.
You can't even compare it.
Nokia 5800 is all plastic and a symbian full touchscreen.
X1 is metal, windows mobile and comes with a full qwerty keyboard.
Se reps and PR staff will alway recommend Se over anything.
They go so far that they say you should get the X1 because of WinMo.
Even SE management do not agree with that.
The whole industry is fed up with WinMo.
The new SE Idou naturally does not come with Winmo - its OS Symbian.
The reliability and speed of X1 is just outrages.
No wonder SE will not let HTC make another model for SE.
I have to say i'm very impress with this cellphone
it's my first Windows Mobile experience
overall it's good however windows mobile is still not prefect and not as fast as compare to other cellphone out in the market also languages support really needs to be improve
Does anybody know when this phone is going to be released by Optus in Australia?
How do i do a virus scan? everytime i am in the pictures and video mode it shows me the following error.
"A problem has occured with pimg.exe"
I have reported the eorror, but does anyone know how to fix this?
Also how can i run a virus scan?
get real da nokia 5800 is a beautifull fone n it wrks brillantley xperia has loadz of faults like droped calls n wifi don't wrk dog crap screen wiv only 65k colors xperia is proberbly da most overpriced piece of crap to hit da market

just about to upgrade my fone not sure which fone to get, so far its between the x1 and the ... moreYou should definitly go for the X1!
Why? WM 6.1 has more options than symbian. And my opinion is that you should have a keyboard. Cus i had the htc diamond and i trade it for a X1. What makes this phone unique is the xpanels, but to be honost i never use it.
Apps using on my x1, Windows Live, Tom Tom are the most commun'
It's also have a great battery life.
Great phone i sell phones for a livin' so i know where i'm talkin about.
i need help, my x1 freezes everytime i open the messaging menu, or start writing a text, i have to restart it everytime, and alread ytried updating the firmware, and master reset, none of the worked, and sony ericsson said the phone is not under warranty becuase i bought it from ebay and its a vodafone logo on the back. what should i do? i paid $1000 for this in november and cant even text!! this blows.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2009I agree. 5800 is more reliable. the 5800 more reliable - dont me me laff .. i work in a faults dept and spoke to an engineer a few weeks back who told me that the 5800 is the new main faulty handset on the network ... why because its nokias 1st touchscreen handset ... what happened when SE released the K850i (1st sony touchscreen) it caused mayhem ... nearly EVERY customer had problems with the software and thousands were unrepairable. i wouldnt go near the 5800 at all tbh not for at least a few months. in fact the only sony ericsson id go for these days is the x1 ... because it runs on winmo
