65K colour screen is a littlebit turn-off but still it seems a great phone.
It says 2nd quarter of the current year this will be on the market and until now it is not available.
Is this becoming a hoax, or SE is still adjusting something. Maybe 5 MP camera and bigger memory perhaps?
As per other sites details Xperia is coming out this October. HTC touch pro is coming in Aug. Since HTC & Xperia has similar specifiation [as u know the real engineering behind Xperia is fom HTC] sony will not delay the release. If delayed then probably loose on sales..
I am waiting for Xperia X1 since last 2 months. Everyday reading the opinions. I had nokia 7710 touchscreen which i lost. Now using stupid moto razr for time being. Seems i will land up getting HTC touch pro this aug as the specification of Xperia & touch pro are similar... Sony... please release Xperia. How long i need to wait???? U will loose potential clients this way.. even though this phone is so irresistible..

Even HTC Touch Diamond uses 65k color screen too. But it has a gorgeous display. This might be happen for X1 too. Wide and gorgeous display.
Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Embedded CE DOES NOT have a cap in color depth at 65k. That is simply not true, stop saying that.
Windows Mobile 6 (and WeCE) supports pixel depths of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 24, and 32 bpp. (Source: msdn.microsoft.com)
16bits = 65k colors, 18bit = 262k colors, 24bit = 16,7m colors.
So, WM doesn\'t directly support 18 bit colordepth (262k). Are we bothered? No.The reason most WM phones use 65k is that converting the framebuffer takes CPU cyles. Using GPUs takes more power and costs more. WM doesn\'t cap at 65k colors, the CPUs and cost-aspects do.
Lets be clear here The screen is one of the finest ever produced thanks to the superb WVGA resolution.( 65k WVGA display is FAR FAR sharper than a 16million colors QVGA display)

Any display with more than 65k colours simply wouldn't make sense in this device because Windows Mobile doesn't support more colours! So stop posting bulls***!
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2008Who wants to watch TV on such small screen in a phone? That's crazy. And the reception is bad:... moreThats initially what i was saying to the person earlier..Reception at terminal 5 maybe strong but where i am in uk we struggle as yet to get reception with a new rooftop aerial etc so down in the street their would be no chance of getting a picture on g600..i was one who bought the lobster 700tv and when it worked it was ok but continually updating licence and getting reception was maddening to say the least..
One good thing to say to that person earlier and its in his favour is if dvb-t works in good reception and by 2012 the freeview reception is brilliant in 98% of country the uk will not have to build a seperate dvb-h system,,but,,the freeview is directional so you would have to point your mobile at the transmitter and also at street level i cannot see it working altho i would still not rule it out..
With xperia the only tele is via 3g and thats dodgy to say the least..I am definatly for mobile tv 100% and always have been so roll on 2012 for our olympics in london..When and if tv comes fully to the mobile will we see whats happening at moment with lots cut out due to copyrights etc,,,who knows but tv on the xperia would look good with that diplay but by 2012 we do not know what handsets will be out???????
There's been wildspread talk at Esato that the next XPERIA will come without qwerty keyboard.
sony ericsson is joking, only 65k colors on a high end device's display, actually i have never seen a 16M colors device's display from sony ericsson, it's a good brand, but i still prefer NOKIA . Nice thing is 256MB of Ram, it's really like a computer, also I like it's design.
I found on PLay the release date of 30 october.. i know play have put bogus release dates up in the past because i have had problems with them, but can any one confirm this?
