Hacienda, 06 Sep 2008I bet people getting omnia,htc touch pro etc end up getting xperiai do not think so...
1. this phone is made by HTC, so i think it safe to assumed that this phone will be no better than HTC own flagship.
2. SE brand and reputation keeps going down in past two year (there's even a rumour that SE will follow the path of Benq-Siemens). so i guess that will affect their market too.
i, myself, not willing to spend my money on a product that has a possibility it will no longer supported by the company that produce it in the near future.
ok maybe wm 7 will be released in q1 2009 so there will be wm 7 phone in q3/q4 2009, it's so long to wait..why do many people complain this phone delay that will be released next month..if you just buy a phone because the OS so when will you buy a phone because each year there will be new OS and new phone surely with different tecnology, design, feature, price ect..i think you must know what you need at first if you want to write document, email, watch the movie so wm 6.1 is enough to fullfil your need and why wait wm7? and if you want better tecnology quality than this year phones i think you must wait until 2020 because there will be 30MP camera, Super HD video resolution ect..for me x1 is good phone in this year...
This may not happen much nowadays but usually handandgo got the realease dates correct and were the first to know about the product as developers were given a head start at getting software sorted for the forthcoming smartfone,,which ever platform it was,,but this was mainly symbian...
For the developers/programmes to get softwares ready and often tailor made for the device handandgo got the info upfront and would not go to the trouble of rewriting and updating software just for the fun of it and expense..
The first time i heard of this was when symbian was changing from its second edition to third edtion series60 and all previous software had to be altered or rewritten to work on the third edtion devices long before any handsets were realeased to get some software ready for the third edition,,however they launched early anyway and then got floods of complaints because nothing much was available for the third edition series 60 and second edition software would not work..
Anyway the xperia is on handandgo website but it would not be their if it was not on the way,,remember what i put above about different editions needing different softwares while that is what i am getting at as the screen of xperia is 800x480 resolution and its seems obvious some tweeks are needed to fit the screen..
Only 6 weeks to go tops but remember shipping time and people already signed up to buy it will take most of the first shipment..I just hope i get it before xmas..

Revenant, 05 Sep 2008I thought it was all about whether or not the browser was capable of supporting xhtml. Yeah, ... moreI think its a mistake by gamarena as even my s/e k770i runs a basic browser but supports xHTML..
Thor, 05 Sep 2008So you are saying it all depends wheater Xperia support xhtml, and not wheater WM supports it.... moreI thought it was all about whether or not the browser was capable of supporting xhtml. Yeah, sure, you gotta worry about whether or not the phone will run the browser program, but the phone's responsibility ends there, does it not? In terms of OS, it pretty much comes down to whether or not the OS comes bundled with a browser capable of xhtml. I might be wrong (and if I am, I'd appreciate it if someone could let me know where I've gone wrong) but that seems to be what makes most sense...
jayjay, 05 Sep 2008i kno its gonna be released in october cos i am going to get it on o2...so tel me woul you rat... moreIt won't make a difference at all. Either there'll be NO model with WinMo7, or if they do decide to provide WinMo7 support, you'll be able to update. It all depends whether they can get WinMo7 to work with the panel interface. So really there's no difference, and absolutely no point waiting...
Today I spoke with a Vodafone representative who absolutely assured me the Xperia X1 would be available within the next 6weeks
Revenant, 05 Sep 2008Didn't u see the previous posts? SE are 100% on track with the release. Those quoting delays... morei kno its gonna be released in october cos i am going to get it on o2...so tel me woul you rather wait for the model with 7.0 or jus buy the 6.1...what will be the main diff?
