You lucky bastards ...!!!!
No bad batch, just nokia fanboys trying to disrupt this section. SE have done an amazing job on what is for them a 1st WM device.ROM updates can only improve what already is a barnstorming product btw Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 goes on sale in USA - through SonyStyle.com also
im only getting my x1 in mid jan 2009 as i can upgrade my contract then only.
i have come to this conclusion about x1:
some people who got the x1 complained that the x1 is slow etc etc. but when they exchange it for a new one, it seems that the problems have disappeared. so maby the first batch of x1 phones is not up to scratch (the reason for the delayed released date?). so now how do i know im not going to get one of those "1st batch phones"?
that is if my theory is correct. anybody to comment?
G33K3D uP, 13 Nov 2008I have this phone goin' on 3 weeks now I love it with all my heart! Yeah it lags here and ther... moreYou are so right my friend. I can't understand people talking bad about this phone... I think they don't even own one or have never used windows mobile. I think the X1 just rocks... You can tweak and customize it to your taste entirely...
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2008The phone specs are already old! Paying 1000USD for that no way!Agree...the specification for X1 is out dated already.
i just bought x1i in indonesia @ Rp. 9000000. The device is amazing!! i like nokia but after i see the x1 so nokia look a doll..no nokia phone like this...
xperia is the best!!!
people who said tha x1 is a bad phone i think the people is crazy or they always give many bad comments with feeling based..

SymbianWorld, 12 Nov 2008Here a comparison between the X1 and the N96:

PS all popular phones get thousands of votes and opinions before anyone has used them
somehow i dont believe this voting results,
it is known that most of the people voted when the phone wasnt in the market.
I have this phone goin' on 3 weeks now I love it with all my heart! Yeah it lags here and there, but the things you can do with this sucker is off the chain! I have both Touchflo 3D and SB Mobile Shell and it makes the mobile Xperience a breeze. I lost track of the custom ringtones I have (30 sec mp3s). I forgot what program it is, but I can use WMV as video ringtones for incoming calls. I also customized the open and close sound on the keyboard, somethin' similar to the sidekicks. And I got custom alert sounds for IM's, email, sms, and mms (1-5 sec mp3s)!!! I downloaded Beejive and now I have ALL the IM's that can run in the background. Copy & paste is to die for! One thing I like about WM 6.1 is I can upload or create an image them mms it to all my friends! Even animated gif images too! I've made ton of holiday animated gif images to send off to my contacts. Hell, I even got friends beggin'me to mms them pictures so they can foward them! In Opera I can select and save images off the web and mms or email them with ease. A stable flash support is on its way hopefully. I'm waitin' for a non-beta version of Skyfire. Bein' able to browse MySpace, Facebook, and all them other sites that stream music and video and display the entire page like an desktop. Got the Youtube app. Thanks to the Xda Developers there's a tweak to mod the noticfication lights. Lookin' forward to video backgrounds in the future. Heck, I'll even settle for animated gif images. I barely started importin' themes. Right now I have a red theme and the notification lights always glow red. Coreplayer is blessin', I can drag and drop a variety of video files without conversion and they play with no problem. I can also edit the T9 dictionary, fonts, and add new symbols. It seems like everyday I change my sms/mms signature because I'm always addin' new symbols and what not. Converstation style sms/mms is the business! I can forward and send to multiple contacts with no problem. I just hope a developer design a better fish panel. It'll be cool if it was like an actual fish tank rather then lookin' down at it. I hope we get street view in an update, Google. You people complain about the touch screen not as good as the iPhone but I use the optical joystick and d-pad as if there isn't a touch screen interface. Last but not least, there is a tweak to increase the sound! I have some old software (6 years old) that I still use today to increase the volume on my mp3's up to 1000%. I can make any headphones/speakers sound loud! This phone is worth every penny if you can aford. That's if you like keep control over your phone! I can't wait till Thankgivin' and X-Mas to so off my phone to my family. Every year I have a new toy to show off...I LOVE THIS PHONE!!!
all xperia owners must download xperiatweak it has options to change fonts cache and so on. Then check software like SBSH PhoneWeaver which enables you to navigate/access functions in a finger friendly manner. check xda developers.com for general tips n tricks and ppcwarez.org for free software
Does anyone know how to change the resolution on the screen? The kbrd and start menu is very small

It's the most annoying, illogical phone I have EVER used in 20yrs, how can these good people offer a phone that you can't use with one hand, need the 'pen' to navigate, cannot just reply to text messages and need glasses to read a text.
I love the principal of it, combined PDA, mobile Word etc, but why oh why, not make the phone function like a normal mobile, too??
It should have touch screen alpha and numbers so that you can multi-task on the go, hence mobile-doh!
I have now sent it back, reluctantly, as I really, really wanted to be able to use it, but there was a real danger I would just throw it out the car window!
Please try again Sony Ericsson, go back to the W801i or C902 (tho that has graphics like a cartoon!)for the 'top' level functionality/use but with all the great PDA bits behind that, and I would snap your hands off, I'm now going to try the C902, sadly!
please be patient !
personally, i think the guys from gsmarena are working right now on something really special on this phone, (canít you see they are ridiculously silent about it ?) because as brandon miniman said on http://www.pocketnow.com, Ąsony ericsson was right by declaring it a "game changer" - this has raised the bar, and if the panel interface takes off and we see a lot of neat panels, the x1 could become a benchmark mobile device.Ē thatís for sure ! "benchmark mobile device" is the right expression for this phone. i didnít get the chance to put my hands on this phone yet, because of the country i live in, but i watched allmost every video about it and i think this phone is the begining of a new era of mobile devices. it is great. it is so well-proportioned. it has so many specs, thatís why i think it is so hard to review it. it is not great in everything (talking about photo and video jobs), but anyway, the way it combines this specs is wonderful and it is representing a new wonderful beginning for sony ericsson and for the future of communication technology. and more, i always believed that for making a great job on something, you need time and thatís something we donít always have at use. so good luck guys and Ö patience, patience, patience !
GsmArena Guy's are up to its Review Seriously!! they give time to device more that it speaks for itself what it can do and what it can't !! so have patience !!
