Anonymous, 31 May 2008Listen to yourself. You're comparing the N95 to a device that no one is even sure when it's r... moreYo, speaking about N96 compare to XPERIA? no joke, N96 looks like a baby toy really. yea 16GB is indeed pretty cool, but hey, is that all they got? they still employ the same old interface that's been used ever since the first N series back in 2005?
Up to this date, nokia has NO device that can stand up against experia, not even HTC diamond. The only upper hand that HTC diamond has over XPERIA is that the fact that they had a pretty cool interface, but, XPERIA has its own special interface too.
XPERIA is the first WVGA screen in the world (when we are not talking about japanese phones). 518MHz+256 MB RAM, this device rox.
Look at the review over mobile-review, N96 clearly does not make any hype since its the same old story with refined specs.
XPERIA is a WHOLE NEW WORLD.
i agree with the comment below actually.
although this phone is an amazing bit of kit, the only reason it is good is because its HTC's.
this phone is superior to every other sony erricson smartphone because...
-it has a 3.5mm jack
-its got a proccessor about 208mhz!
-its got a vga screen
and sony erricson would never normally include those features
It's time for you SE fanboys to take a reality check.
SE rules, what do they rule? If they rule, they will be number 1 in everything. I am using both Nokia and Samsung handphone and both companies are making lots of effort to improve. Look at the sales of phones worldwide, where is Sony Ericsson? If you compare SE with the Japanese phones like Sharp or Toshiba, there is absolutely no fight at all. Even LG is above SE! Come on SE, I want to see back in the top 3.
Come on, SE . Please improve the following
- Design ( Your design is one of the worst among all the other phone manufacturers)
- Touchscreen ? For goodness sake, Use a bigger screen!
-3.5MM jack for all future handphones
-More highend phones
-Improve your build quality
Blast me as you like, SE fanboys. Please go take a chill pill to reflect what I have to say. Every company will have their own critics and that includes SE. I gave up SE for Nokia and Samsung and I have no REGRETS. D

N tube is not announced yet..if nokia tube is better than x1 but it will be very expensive, look at N96 price is higher than Diamond price eventhough Diamond has higher processor, RAM and ROM, 3D touch FLO, touch screen, higher resolution than N96 etc and how about with N tube price ?? haha it will be MEGATON DOLLARS and when N tube is announced to public so there will be others cool phone with better quality than N tube maybe SE P7 or like that..SE RULE!!!Xperia is enough for me..X1 is the best...

SE is developing Xperia and give developers a chance to upgrade ar finish their application and xperia you saw on video is prototype not real X1 power.look at Diamond has the same processor speed as x1 and smaller RAM and ROM than x1 but diamond is so fast, it means Xperia wiil be faster and better than Diamond..stop your assumtion as if you knew everything...
this is not a ordinary phone and for your information this phone XPERIA X1 is more greater and has powerful devices than you N-Series phones...

how do you know nokia tube will has better quality than X1? it's your assumtion although your assumtion is right but what for ? the price will be expensive too...
there is news today about phone prices..N96 is about $1000+ more expensive than Htc diamond is only about $700...LOL!!
N96 has smaller processor speed, RAM, ROM, no touch screen, no WM OS, smaller HSDPA etc than Diamond but the price is up to $1000+ wow!!! very expensive!!! how about with nokia Tube?? maybe i must to be a rich man to buy Nokia tube which has better quality than Xperia and diamond hahaha...
my opinion about HTC Diamond...i think Xperia is still better than Diamond...look at Diamond..no flash light, no memory slot, no qwerty, smaller RAM and ROM than X1, shorter life battery than Xperia...i think diamond only has 3D touch flo for inovation but X1 will cover it with their panels maybe the panels you saw is dummy panels but you must know xperia is in progressing..how do you know x1 has a bug..is there any official website to prove it ? xperia you saw was prototype and not real x1 power!! for example to explain it look at Diamond can access WM 6.1 and 3D touch floo smoothly, you know diamond use the same processor speed as Xperia and has smaller RAM and ROM than x1 but Diamond is so fast..it means xperia will be faster and better than Diamond later...SE is still developing XPERIA and give developers a chance to upgrade or finish their applications..stop your bullshit assumtion here
I believe there is no accelerometer yet
Can anyone answer me!
I've used Qteck S100 and as it was WM5, I used to play audio songs but the battery last for only couple of hours and the worst part was it was so hot, does anyone know or used audio/walkman features on any other WM pocket pc???
Just out of interest, why not go for a Windows Mobile device? Symbian is useless as a 'portable computer' when compared to WM5/6. There is a whole world of joy to be had with WM if you want good internet and office type apps, honestly it's miles and miles ahead, and the gap is getting bigger. For every crappy proprietary Nokia app there is like 50 apps for for WM that are 10 times better.
I have a an MDA Vario III and a N95. I enjoy both but if i had to choose one there would be no contest :)
I am very disappointed with symbian though after a couple of years of WM5/6. It's like taking a huge step backwards, but when I require a smaller non business phone of just calls and text and a few photos ,video's to take to the pub and not have to worry about clients not calling me, my N95 is perfect for that
I'm just a bit down on Symbian, the terrible state of affairs regarding decent software has got to me today, i'm spoilt for choice with my MDA. I am pretty well cattered for for both devices, but it bugs me when Nokia market the N95 as a "multimedia computer" not a phone. Yes, great video recording but the MP3 player is a joke.

Personally I'm tossing up between the Diamond and this one, but i'll probably pick the cheaper one they are basically the same.

Simple logic as that' erm Diamond has less features than X1 and is aimed at a slightly different market hence the absence of a hardware QWERTY keyboard
yeah they need to hurry it up a bit.
even if its a bit buggy, release it now and just give it a firmware update in a month or so
google android is not coming on this phone, but there are many sony ericsson phones lined up with android, just wait and watch
don't compare HTC diamond with this one, and HTC has nothing to do with Xperia
XPERIA is a brand from Sony ericsson, 100% made by Sony Ericsson of which this is first product called X1 (Brand XPERIA)
only Sony ericsson has guts to bring a phone with
GSM+EDGE (quad band) + UMTS+HSDPA+HSUPA (Quad band)
you guys don't know more complex the hardware, that much amount of time and work it needs to make a right and awesome phone like this

You're comparing the N95 to a device that no one is even sure when it's really going to be available in the market, lol. You mentioned that the N96 has silly flaws, but you should know that one of the main reasons why the X1 is taking so long to get released is because they are having a hard time fixing its bugs. You are biased. As for me, I am not a fan of any phones, if any of those manufacturers come up with a cool phone, I'd be interested. I'm not closeminded like most Nokia and SE fanboys are. I will not limit myself to just one manufacturer like you probably do.
indra, 30 May 2008Yes that's right but the question is will Nokia tube or 3G iphone has better quality than ... moreWell, the iphone 3G and the Nokia Tube will surely have the upper hand for they pretty much know the specs of X1. So they would more than likely build a phone that has better specs than the X1. It's not about cancelling or changing your mind, or waiting for better phones to come out. It's about launching a phone so early and releasing it so late, that gives other competitors a chance to launch & release right away phones of similar or even better specs. And that is exactly what HTC did. I had my eyes set on the X1 for quite a while now, but it never came out, then all of a sudden other cool phones came out, so of course I would naturally start comparing. Then I decided to get the Diamond instead of the X1. Simple logic as that.
i wonder if its possible to get google android on this... that would be awesome!
lol that's true.You need to hack a s60 os9 just to install ahem 'free' apps pmpl Symbian made a big deal about security and look what happens!Then you go to a s60 forum and the users think it's amazing how they've hacked there phone.WinMo has been hacked years ago but it's not so you can install apps,it's so you can customize almost anything you wish.I like the nokia's hardware but with that awful s60 symbian os it's not an option for me.Xperia leads the way...
