Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008Rip Off cell phone, way too expensive for what you get, you can buy the HTC HD for same price ... moreDo not worry the price will drop really fast!
I bet there are some problems with the unit - it has to be a reason why SE/HTC kept delaying the release. It had to be something which totally screwed the unit. Probably, they hold things up and started to work on X2 so there will not be too much time between the units and loose even more market share. It will take a few months until the X1 reputation sinks and then they put the X2 on the market.
(regular bugs can be fixed in a few months not in 7 months!)
I guess the X2 is almost ready.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008some says its been made by htc for se?lols.. come on se has its own factory and they were not ... more˝they were not folish to do such things..˝
YES they are!!!!!
Why don´t you get educated about facts before start making comments!
X1 is made by HTC!
There is a reason why peole have difficulty to imagine that SE would not manufacture its most expensive unit and give it to HTC to make it.
The reason: the bad track record of HTC - poor reliability.
Rip Off cell phone, way too expensive for what you get, you can buy the HTC HD for same price but with tons of better features than the X1! SE has to lower the X1 price to 450USD!
some says its been made by htc for se?lols.. come on se has its own factory and they were not folish to do such things handling there reputations in the market.
ive compared this fone to other similar brands and found out that this is the best in terms of over-all specs.. se is the best ever.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008Lamborghini ?????? :)))) You got serious problem if you think this (X1) is the Lamborghini ... moreNokia uses chipsets manufactured in China; Motorola too, IBM uses Intel processors manufactured in Philippines and Seagate and Western Digital hard drives manufactured in Thailand, DELL too. So what is the problem with HTC from Taiwan, in a market in which all IT hardware is manufactured in Asia? Soon BMW, Mercedes and Lamborghini will be manufactured in China and Vietnam by bicycle factories based on the decision of Western capitalists, so what is your problem: you don't like Asian locations or you don't like Western decisions?
Come on, 29 Oct 2008This is a quality "high end" device so why are people complaining about the price.
Who woul... moreLamborghini ?????? :))))
You got serious problem if you think this (X1) is the Lamborghini of the cell phones.
Expensive products has some special features like performance, reliability etc.
X1 is nothing like that.
X1 got no performance advantage (like Lamborghini)
- limited internal memory, OS, CPU.
The design is an old Psion one which was copied already several times.
It is manufactured by HTC
and it will be totally worthless in a few months - unlike a Lamborghini!
This is a quality "high end" device so why are people complaining about the price.
Who would ever expect a PocketPC to be cheap in price?
I think those price whiners out there, are out of their depth, or expect things on a silver platter, how about working a little extra and saving the money to buy a high end device like the X1, you have had since February after all.
If you dont want to pay that price, then look at some low to middle range phones.
Can you imagine going up to a Lamborghini salesperson and saying, "Im not paying that money for a car which is not much faster than other cars out there at half the price!"
Any idea of this reputation of this company?
Scorpio, 28 Oct 2008Yes, it has accelorometer.
Yes, it can be connected as Bluetooth Modem but I won't recommen... morei don0t realy know abaut ascelometer, but i think it is not insode.
What i can confirm is that there sure isn't any auto UI rotate, so that make me think there is no ascelometer, as they would use for autorotete, if it was.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2008Yes, 630 Euro is nothing for you but you suggest taht you happy to save 200 Euro by getting it... morewell i waa talking relatively. 630 is a lot of course, too much for me, but still comparing to other products, nokias are more overpriced, so don0t say that SE is overpriced.
That is what i wanted to say. And as far as i am concerned, i will sell 2 yer old Nokia E90 for 300 and buy 2 months old X1 for abaut 400-450, i say quite a good trade :)
Pete, 28 Oct 2008can anyone confirm if the X1 has an accelerometer built in??
also am i able to use the X1 as ... moreYes, it has accelorometer.
Yes, it can be connected as Bluetooth Modem but I won't recommend that.
When the first videos come out on xperia the dutch speaking chap said it was walkman,,cybershot etc all in one premium product..Now i dont see any mention of cybershot or walkman,,i am not sure now what i am actually buying if i get on..I am not paying for basic camm,,non walkman phone with 3inch touch screen and windows behind the panes,,i would save money and buy touch pro
r2ak, 28 Oct 2008its a really good phone and i love it. its the best phone in the world all the other pho... moreMy samsung d900 gets hot and my n82 gets hot on a 3g video download,,the hottest fone i had was samsung z500 it was scorching hot whilst charging and normal phone call,,so yes phones do get hot after periods of long use and using 3g or heavy loading..If its hot that you cannot touch it then something is short circuiting but normal heat say lukewarm cup of tea i would consider normal
Sony Ericsson? No. It is produced by HTC for SE . And it costs about 700$ in Poland? No way. I won't buy it.
