Well I believe SE is responsible for their own actions over losing the annual sales targets, not making enough profit as they're still on the same old and fussy policy, not launching inovative handsets, kinds same style in all series of phones, UIQ is limited. There are so many shortfalls and long list of getting strategy wrong but I'm still waiting for X1 to buy one and hoping this flagship handset will play his role to bring the company to the shore.

Probably the fans may get ... moreWhat a ridiculous statement.SE commision HTC to produce a barnstorming device..commisioned the finest brains in america...informed handandgo of release date and software..spend millions in the process..know the market has shown great interest...know north america is crying out for such a device(symbian has 3percent share there) yet 6weeks before release you know SE are going to cancel the product...how silly can someone be?!!!!

Probably the fans may get the prototypes for low price if it will never be released. Sadly, WM and Qualcomm can’t boost the phone industry; WM is too complex for businessmen and Qualcomm too slow for gamers.
What has market share got to do with this particular unit?!Nokia are a great manufacturer,they build many good devices and I say good on them but the xperia x1 offers more than any current nokia phone.If you can't see this then your ignorant or blinded by brand loyalty.I long for the day when the boys in here grow up!!!
Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson on Friday posted a 97 percent drop in second-quarter earning and said it would slash 2,000 jobs worlwide in a move to cut costs.
Sony Ericsson's fortunes are apparently much more bleak than Nokia's.
World market share until second-quarter 2008 :
5. Sony Ericssons

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2008Lacks many things? Such as?

Wahid, 18 Jul 2008I know this phone lacks many thing. But this phone might be the Underdog of SE of this year.Lacks many things? Such as?

Vaggelis Dimitriou, 17 Jul 2008I think one more time SE sacrifices the hardware for price. I think is not enough
the 65k col... moreI dont think you are aware of the facts.
Xperia uses 528mhz qualcomm chipset with dedicated graphic and audio chips.
It also has 256mb RAM.
These facts alone make Xperia as 1 of the most advanced phones in the world.
Add to it a WVGA screen which again is rarely seen these days and QWERTY keyboard with arc sliding mechanism.
This phone is 1 of the master pieces of today's technology.
65K(16 bit) is the problem of WM and not SE
So there you have it folks - the moment you’ve all been waiting for will come in the middle of September when the Xperia hits stores!
Some people aren’t so patient and rumor has it that pre-released Xperia devices have been made available for prices as high as $1,500. This has been confirmed by websites such as MobileCityOnline, CellHUT, WirelessGalaxy and Smart Mobile Gadgets.
Thanks but no thanks. If you want to know when the REAL Xperia is available for sale, sign up for an Instant E-mail Notification and you will be informed as soon as the phone is made available for sale or pre-order by a Sony Ericsson themselves.
Lets clear some things up.As you can see the Xperia x1 packs a fair old punch!
