I love the design and specs of this SE phone...except that I am not a fan of Windows Mobile Pro...how I wish SE would create a Symbian version of this phone...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970What did you do ? Did you dropped it on the floor or what ? This is a phone dropped on the floor. I don't think SE would sell you something like that in one million year time. Come on, man, be serious ! Show me some more internal cracks ! :)))

Anonymous, 04 Dec 2008Can't you bog off to the nokia sections?People in this forum are wise enough not to be sucked ... moreI think anybody would like to have the best phone on the market. What I don't understand is that why these people don't understand this is the best phone at this moment and are trying to compare it to other phones, like Nokia, Samsung or HTC, because they ar obviously weaker phones, in allmost all the areas.
SEX1 is the best ! Period !
Can't you bog off to the nokia sections?People in this forum are wise enough not to be sucked in by megapixel nonsense or 16million color hype!you see we're wise enough to know small camera sensors and are not ideal for 8mp etc we also know that most people print photo's at 6 x 4 to which 3.2MP is ideally suited.The xperia has the best screen in the buisness and that's a fact!....NEXT...

It is true that 24bit screens are inefficient due to CPU cycles it's really an either or...65k(16bit) or 16million(32bit).Your a fool if think you can see a noticable difference on a high res 2- 3inch screen but feel free to compare..htc touch diamond v n96 Touch diamond screen wins hands down.Xperia screen is widely acknowledged as the best in the buisness
16M vs. 56K Color :)))
These fans (word means: fanatics) keep arguing how stupi d to have more than 56k since the human eye can not even differentiate 56K ...etc. and it is just a gimmick by nokia ...etc. :)))
but being uninformed they forget that SE makes several phones that has 256K color - about 5 times!!! - of 56K!!! Is that gimmick also??? :)))
SE fooling us with the 256K color? :))))
Look, I prefer a Ferrari or Porsche with 500HP even if I never actually use all potentials compare to a Kia.
BTW, the 56K not an issue for me! :)))
The issues are:
1: Reception problems
2: Wifi problems
3: battery weak (probably due to RAM leakage)
4: case cracks
Manufacturing error /lack of QA
5:Software crash / needed hard reset
6: incompatibility with application
due to screen resolution
7: unit gets hot
8: low speaker volume
ALL widely reported! :)
so, for those of you that own the phone, what is the internet like on it? i've heard it's not the greatest on the xperia.
also, does anyone know if this phone is coming to the US?
It is funny that someone who unable to reason acuses over and over again that we are the loosers, retarded etc. :))
but he call a decent contract ´expensive´ I guess he can not afford a dime but being a fan he feels it is a duty to protect a product of a global corporation even if it is out of his price range and it is a piece of junk :)))
Dude, if a contract is expensive for you how come we are the losers? :)))
I do not see E90, HTC HD etc. given away FREE!
X1 is just came out and already given away with a contract.
It tells a´lot about the X1! :))))
X1 is made by HTC,
and HTC will not make better phones for SE than HTC HD or Pro
They would be fool to do so.
So, HD selling like hot cakes and SE X1 is offered for free.
Do you have any idea how much Vodafone pays for the X1 so they can give it away for free? (with contract( and still make good money.
I bet they pay no more than 250-300 USD for the X1.
SE must know something that makes them sell a new product for 300USD when initially (just recently) it was 1200USD.
I think they know X1 will never sell! It is that simple!
I just spoke to SE Australia and they said Telstra have the initial release within December 08.
The Aussie market will be getting both the American version (UMTS850 – with Telstra) and the international version (UMTS2100 – with all other carriers).
Both versions will support 3.5G, but the American version will only have video VGA@24fps, and also FM radio.
The International version will have video VGA@30fps, but no FM radio.
I definitely use video on my current phone now more than radio so the International version it is. Strange that we are forced to trade-off, oh well.

Well, in my opinion it is not completely correct to compare Nokia smartphones with other WM pocket pc's because of the target group...
People who buy Nseries are in most cases not people who are tech savvy... Without the Nokia label most of them would not buy a smartphone...they buy Nokia smartphone - because it has a better camera(megapixel hype) or the ridiculous 16MILLION colours etc
WM is mostly bought by people who want smartphone. Logically this group is more limited... I like WM more (freedom, applications, not being interested in a finger based GUI), but for most of people the simple, user friendly and closed phone is better... Most people are not interested in running high caliber applications on their phones
I hope that WM will not be dumbed down to s60 level... Maybe it would become more popular among masses, but I guess there would be a price for real smartphone users.
Comparing n97 or any other symbian to a winmo device is pointless. WinMo takes months if not years to master but as an OS offers twenty times that of symbian. S60 is designed with fools in mind hence why most s60 users think it's the best thing since sliced bread..
