goddamn it, where is the screen rotation button? it seem missing in most previews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Indra.... Thanx a lot for your help and info's... The Xperia is really a cool phone... I've been using symbian, osx of iphone and many others but when you start using WM you can't go back to any other os as WM offer so much and loads of possibilities and app... Symbian too has lats of apps but they are not as professional and helpful as WM ones... But for touchscreen os, the iphone os is still the best, i mean for user friendliness but lacks many things compared with WM... With the Panels really SE gives WM users vast opportunities... Keep it up.. Today is a great day... Cheerrrrzzzz SE fans... X1 rocks...
Looks like SE only gave illusion of this phone. HTC already launched absolutely classic competition for X1...HTC-TouchPRO. Its cool.
there's arumor that X5 will be annlunce 1stQ next yr. how is that?! i love my P1.
I don't know what SE is doing...
Here in New Zealand, nobody even knows about X1. I want to buy one as soon as it comes out.
When iPhone launched, people were waiting for it in the queue, because let people when it will be launched exactly.
New Zealand is the first country in the world iPhone launched, because we see the sun earlier than anybody on earth. I think this not gonna happen for X1.
Too bad. This is a great phone and going to be launched by I-D-I-O-T-S and not many people know about it.
Therefore, they are not going to sell many of X1. SE should fire their marketing guys. Useless...
indra, 29 Sep 2008on xperia has 2 systems but combined that means you can use these systems at 1 time..when you ... morei wrote" SE dont let you waste your money for device can enjoyed at full quality" but i mean " SE dont let you waste your money for device CAN NOT enjoyed at full quality.thanks
yes x1 doesnt come with flash lite 3.0 device as default application but you can download flash lite from 3rd party developer like xda..X1 is very flexible

Windows Mobile is a minefield for the average user Unfortunately they just don't understand how flexible it is. How many reviewers increase the pagepool?probably 1 out of 10!Increasing the file system cache increases operational speed no end.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2008sony experia x1 will officially be launched in january 2009 due to technical faults.. no po... moreNot true, not true, not true. This has been confirmed many times now. There WAS something on SE's site that said jan 2009, but they've admitted themselves that this was an error. I'm not sure where you're getting your info, but it definately AIN'T official...
brynn, 29 Sep 2008This is only a suggestion but do you think gsmarena should re catagorise its site to seperate ... moreThere's already a feature like that. Just click on the advanced search button in the top right of the website. It's got loads of check boxes and drop-down menus to sort through phones by feature, OS etc.
