SE's online store has this phone for January :(... I do hope it gets released September and the SE store only gets them in January..
Regarding the release of this phone, Sony has a huge expectation placed on it to get it out by the leaked September date. The X1 has reached such a high profile in the cellular community that it would be very bad press to pass up this date without a launch. They also don't want to launch too close to the holidays or after, so that they can maximize sales. They NEED the xperia to dig them out of their ridiculous financial troubles.
Although this is a truly unmatched phone (for its size) right now, it would also be foolish to let Nokia, HTC, and others to catch up or launch similar products first... Like the Touch Pro.
The good news is that since February, they have had working demo units out in the wild in the hands of testers and have worked out loads of bugs since then; especially the ones everyone had complained about at the world congress about the panel GUI being too slow. The beta period fixes and ROM updates have been thoroughly chronicled at bengalboy.com, FYI.
Do your research. Except for pricing, you can find out almost anything you want about this phone. If you are in love with Nokia or don’t have a full grasp of screen resolution vs. pixel counts, check up on your facts before you post. I read some of the dumbest comments on the net here, and I think that a lot of those people who will buy this phone won’t know what to do with it.

Finally someone with some useful info. How about that guy from Nepal, he seems re... moreIn Rockhampton, but I imagine it would be the same in Sydney.
I'm pretty sure all vodafone phones are available outright, and soft locked, so there should be no problems there.
Finally someone with some useful info. How about that guy from Nepal, he seems really backed up, needs a couple of Wild Turkeys and he'll be ok.
Which Vodafone store? In Sydney? Did he mention if he thought they would offer it outright as well? I call OS a lot on my cell, so pre-paid is the way to go, as OS calls are not included in a contract cap.
September release is right on track.
How about the guy mentioning the NOKIA N95 - Ha! - forget about the past buddy!
Forget this phone, the fact they don't release it in time means they have problems with it and don't disclose, of course. This phone has absolutely no new chips, no new OS then why they don’t release it? The combination they chose doesn’t stand up: too high resolution with too slow processor; too large RAM memory and complex network receiver for too little battery power; too buggy and autistic OS for a reliable real time phone conversation and so forth.
Guys don't expect this device to be perfect,not with the first ROM.If you care to think back the N95 was pretty bad with v10 firmware-It was slow and had more bugs than a 15year old mattress.On release the xperia X1 won't be as bad as n95 but as I said it won't be perfect.
Anonymous - You will find most of those online orders are PREORDERS.
Anyways, I went into my local vodafone store yesterday, and the guy said that we in australia would get it no later than september, but he is going to try and get an exact date for me, so if I get that, I will tell you guys. But it will be out in september, there was an email leak.
From DAY 1 SE stated the Xperia X1 would be released in the last quarter of 2008.How can people say it's late??It's bang on target.SE announced plans early so to give software developers plenty of time to produce applications suitable for such an advanced device with the highest resolution screen on the mobile market.It also generated interest in the company..

SE these days su*cks... they're mocking fans... it's alm... moreThere seems to be ALOT of places online to order it, so what was to stop you from ordering it online? Or was you just waiting for YOUR carrier to pick it up? Come on give me a break, you dont have it because you did not order it.
dani/nick/a¥sholer/r, 31 Jul 2008today i/we went to moble store to check the quality of x1.it was soooo rubish that i/we crushe... moreGood thing I dont live there, I would never have a good phone, and it would have to be made of solid steel, for it to have much of a life, just by the way you treat them. No wonder you dont know what you are talking about, you break it, before you try it.
today i/we went to moble store to check the quality of x1.it was soooo rubish that i/we crushed it on the spot.
Strangly shopkeeper was happy to get rid of x1.he told me/us that now a days noone buys se. In the meantime he threw all se phones in garbedge.a place se deserves.
Today i/we gurantee you that x1 wont be a success. Not atleast in my country Nepal
(x1 is available in Nepal for last 2 mönths)
i just want this phone cancelled ... SE these days su*cks... they're mocking fans...
it's almost 8 months since this phone was announced and still not on the market ...
this is outrageous and for those who hopes that this phone will be released in september you will be very disapointed.
and if this phone will be released in september it will at least another 2 months untill will hit the shelves of your carrier
the specs are already old...
they should change the camera
a simple tv out should be added
windows mobile 6.1 will be replaced by windows mobile 7 in march 2009
it will be far superior to the 6.1
after 3 months of the release SE will anounce Xperia X2 it will be the phone that Xperia X1 mented to be in feb.
SE will do exactly as HTC has done with the Diamond, they released Diamond a buggy/slow phone and shortly after they anounced Diamond Pro, the phone that eliminates all the prb of the Diamond
Nokia made the exact thing with the N95
Shame on them...
Btw... the price will be at least 800euros w/o contract
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2008and maybe it comes with Windows Mobile 7.0none of them.
it will come out at September
