the specs posted by GSM arena are not correct:
The x1 does not come with track ID
Also most of the existing pocket pc applications will not work due to the unconventional screen size
Don't by this thig, it's a big waste of money
I've been reading the specs and user ratings and was dying to make the switch from my old tytnII to this xperia.
I finally got it and was enjoying it for the first few minutes untill i tried to install some applications.... Most of the applications normal people use on pocketPCs will not work due to the unconventional size of the screen (garmin, real player, almost all the games i had)
But before i put it back in its box i tried to check out the features that cam included (or the ones I thought would be included as per gsmarane's specs) and the first thing i wated to try was "track ID" and man was I surprized that it is not available... track ID is not available on the x1 as advertised on gsmarena, that really pissed me off so I decided to use music ID which i was working great on my tytnII but, due to the wierd screen size even that application did not work.
I put the piece of junk back in it's box and now everyday I regret blowing off that load of money for a useless piece of junk.
Sony Ericcson, you should be ashamed of yourselves.
I'am afraid the SCREEN size is too narrow at 52.6mm compare to other SE models:
W960 109.0 x 55.0 x 16mm
P1 106.0 x 55.0 x 17mm
P990i 114.0 x 57.0 x 17mm (w/o flip)
XPERIA 110.5 x 52.6 x 17mm
It should have at least the same size of P990i which is 57.0mm. You comment please.
is this compatible with vista? and can this open powerpoint presentations?

Excellent performance. Great built quality. Really expensive. Not a very good UI interface adaptation (panels are not really that useful) Good camera for pictures and video. Great sliding mecanism. Great resolution, BUT beware: even though screen size is good (3 inches) it's narrow, which makes text look very tiny and difficult to read.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It costs 42.5k at digital exchange upto 6 months 0% interest. I'm not sure if it's compatible to blackberry functions.
i finally have it here in the philippines... the price is so expensive 42.5k but the unit is worth it for me.... the phone is damm good and panel is so amazing especially the fish panel... there's a minimal slowness when you shift the panel... but this fone is so good...

The underground is actually made of metal, the keys themselves are made of plastic I will concede they are also somewhat slippery. The Nokia E71, and especially the BlackBerry Bold make it better, because their keys are more contoured and almost sharp printers.
The keyboard of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is very good because the size of the individual keys and spacing agree with each other. Moreover, the arrangement of the angled keyboard and display is ideal while typing in hand.
Is this phone is capable to change the default ringtone when unknown caller/sender calls/sends message?
how does the keypad for the phone looks like ???
does it hav the function like the LG phone pad but not those keyboard type..
if ill going to have this one!!!
i would rather choose the nokia 5800, aside from having 3.2 inch screen compare to 3.0 it has also a TV out and a 16million LCD screen collor compare to 62K? haha damn!!!!

Except that most people who have the slightest interest in the SE X1 would know by now that it's made by HTC.
Regarding TF3D...The XDA community is vast and helpful and there are numerous ROMs available to suit anyone's taste.
Except possibly for the battery life, your remaining arguments are poor.
The TP has a slight problem with the left D Pad control. But the physical keypad on the X1 is rubbish. The TP has the best QWERTY keypad on the market.
All in all, your comparison is baseless and you probably made it all up.
But, having had SE for a while now, I really wish O2 would have released it. Since they have yet to do so, I went for the TP.
there are indentations on both side of the phone near to SE logo, squeeze your finger nails underneath it. That should release the back cover.
I just bought a new sony ericsson X1, but somehow the back cover is not coming off so i can insert the battery. I have been using sony ericssons for years, this is the first time. Can someone help me on this?
Hi! are there any sync software for this phone that I could download? ironic heh! Windows phone to sync with a mac! I would appreciate your help thanks!
Having been accused of being biased against the Xperia X1, I thought I better try and balance the books a bit and note explicitly the areas where I think the Xperia is clearly ahead. These areas may in fact be the deal makers and deal breakers when it comes to choosing between the two.
Firstly, the hand feel of the Xperia is definitely better, due to the slimmer, thinner and lighter design which is more reminiscent of a candybar phone than the slightly more blocky Touch Pro.
Secondly, the all metal construction of the Xperia does speak more to quality than the all plastic construction of the Touch Pro.
800×480 at 3 inches clearly beats 640×480 at 2.8 inches, even if the software does not always take advantage of it.
The Xperia’s 3.5 mm headphone jack also clearly beats whatever the Touch Pro has to offer.
Buttons - again the Xperia has a plethora of them, including a camera button which makes taking a picture 3 times faster on the Xperia than on the Touch Pro.
Lets not forget the Xperia does VGA video recording while the Touch Pro only does piddling QVGA.
Phone reception - its close, but the Xperia is better at holding on to a signal than the Touch Pro.
Phone sound quality - the earphone is louder and clearer on the Xperia and the Touch Pro, with none of the “sweet spot” nonsense of the Touch Pro.
WIFI reception is definitely much better on the Xperia, with much better range than the Touch Pro.
Battery life - I think is good on both, but the Xperia has more mAh, and does seem to last longer than the Touch Pro.
More open development environment for their skins - Touchflo3D has no SDK (and badly needs it) while Panels, while it has less community support, is actually an open platform which anyone can develop for.
The last advantage the SE Xperia has over the HTC Touch Pro is in those two little letters - SE. Sony Ericsson is an established brand name, and when some-one sees the Xperia and see the little Sony Ericsson logo the device suddenly seems more familiar, accessible and desirable, and people who would not touch a Windows Mobile smartphone suddenly sees something they can actually work with.
