Looks like the great SE X1 and the Nokia n96 hype was just all that. Looks like we got screwed this year and now we will have to wait and see what 2009 brings us. Wait till end of jan 09 to find out whats on the menu. I believe nokia will be the first out of the gates with a winner phone touch screen and great battery + everything that n96 has and more.
add on here.. if can integrate PSP 3D games..tat must be fantastic! like nowadays..nokia inplemented n-gage in their new product..:)
if xperia can have below spec will be quite perfect:
i) camera 8.1 megapixel
ii) improved qwerty pad
iii) smoother operation( at least not choppy and lag)
How good is this phone!
If u r not technically minded, a Windows Mobile is not for u.
I love being able to customise my mobile, & not b a follower (conformist).
And how about these morons that still talk about 65k colours!! Can those people piss off to another forum.
This phone is high-end, hence the price & specs, so there is a few of u that need to look at some other phones.
Just waiting for sony ericsson Hikaru(Xperia x5)
Go and see in google images, its awsome.
A sureshot iphone killer.
Want any more info then just blog here, i'll reply!!!
To all SE owner. Secret message in service menu. At standby mode press > * < < * < *select service info,select model info then press 2,4,6,8 you'll be amaze =D (> right, < left, * asterisk)
Another Sony's desasterous failure...... Just like Playstation 3. Sure, it makes profit, sure it's a good product. But I'm sure Sony will only accept nothing but th BEST.They've let themselves down again!
BUT I love T303!!! That's a WINNER
reo, 23 Nov 2008SE X1 users,plz don't make it personal.
x1 is a great phone.but it's not the game changer.i... moreWe need to wait for the new browser from Microsoft which will be IE6 along with the new Flash from Java. Anyone who jumped the gun and bought this device without these 2 features is sort of screwed.
They should be in mobile phones and smartphones within the next 2 months. Once they have these 2 features web browsing will be much better and on par with the Safari browser that comes in the Iphone.
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2008I don't know why people like this phone so muchthat's because there are lots of techno freaks
SE X1 users,plz don't make it personal.
x1 is a great phone.but it's not the game changer.it's not even closer to that.se promised to beat iphone.but can it?it got 3.0 inchs lcd,3.2 mp camera!but look at '06 phones 5mp(N95),8gb(N91),3.5 inchs lcd(iphone).it's 145grms.costs $885 in dolls.omnia have much better options with slick price and weight.what i hate of x1 bcoz is not a 1 hand operateable phone.qwarety & browsing experience was not GREAT.card slot was underneath the cover.it takes more to be a game changer.
hope next x would be a all in one game changer.
look on vodafone forums and all you see is users complaining. It's not SE to blame,it's vodafone's tampering
out of the box experience, not good
after tweaks, not bad
camera, horrible! worst than my old trusty K800i
flash almost non existence.
hope new firmware will make the experience better
else goodbye xperia...

RaXa, 23 Nov 2008@brynn
first of all Congrats buddy.. now i am really waiting for u to share ur experience :) Thanx RaXa,,firstly i am glad i got black,,screen is fantastic just watching quantum of solace trailer and at beggining when M.G.M. lion comes up the gold against black is vivid,pin sharp and mega colourful..TRied an mp3 and s/e own player is better than wm player as its crisper..Just setting things up and as for speed it took wm player i first tried 20 minutes to update library with 2,500 files on a 16gb card..
Fisrt woes,,no graphic equaliser out of box on s/e player,,and qwerty is brilliant to type with with not one typo on practice runs but it can just bleach out so you cannot see keys at certain angles,,you have to tilt it a bit it in light to see keys..It reminds me of my sharp gx30 where the keys just looked silver in bright light..
Its really comfortable in both landscape and portrait to hold and operate..I have not done that much yet their so much customisation and dont know how to operate fish or know what multi colour leds mean yet..Yahoo go wont load its not available yet so using yahoo normal for emails..
Cam seems fine there is lots of settings and vga video can judder slightly on fast panning but when played back it looks fine enuf..Have been on s/e downloads for panels and got spb shell or something as a free download plus theirs free windows live panel and facebook panel...Got a thickhead now after nearly 5 hrs solid playing about on full blast backlight and its on half battery now,,my n82 would have been dead at about 4hrs 10 minutes using that loading..I am going now and was going to put it on charge overnight but cannot till its dead and to tired to spend another 5-6 hrs solid with it..plus dont know how battery meter works,,it may be a while off yet before second charge.bye
