no one can seriously discuss about this phone becoz no one has ever seen it becoz it is not even launched. comparing it to N95, E90 and N82 proves that this phone is in infant stages as these nokia powerhouses were launched long back and selling in millions already.
First up is the X1's engine bay...... Powered by a Qualcomm 7201A 528mhz processor, with 512mb of ROM memory onboard (380mb available for storage) and 128mb of RAM, the X1 is more than adequately powered for serious application, internet and multi-tasking performance. With such a large ROM the X1 will be able to store "on device" all of your most frequently used and important applications freeing up your Micro SD card for Media such as photographs, video, songs and documents.....
Providing the suspension for the X1's engine is the Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 operating system. A very big deal considering Sony Ericsson was one of the original companies that supported and provided development of the Symbian operating system. Haha... finally realizing that it could never provide a truely serious device with such a lame ass operating system, Sony Ericsson did it right by enlisting the help of HTC in developing the companies first Windows Mobile Device. Very Smart Sony Ericsson!!
First up is the phone hardware and performance of the Sony Ericsson X1. The X1 is a GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) voice and WCDMA (Wide Band Code Division Multiple Access) 3G high speed data, enabled device.
A thoughtful software feature in the phone settings is the automatic SMS message for times when you reject a call. It lets the caller know that you recognize the call, but, your too busy right now to talk or you can customize the message to suit your needs...

dont buy xperia
plz, try our touch diamond
it is the best after nokias e90
16m color is great..............yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
since you knew a lot of things about HTC (which makes you a fanboy, bigtime!)...why don't you just go back to the htc thread and educate people who posts there. then we'll have world peace
its actually 'common knowledge' by now that HTC is the OEM/ODM for the SE X1. if you just found this out NOW - then you really know alot LESS than you think.
also, SO WHAT!??? 'so what' if HTC made the 'innards' of the X1? fact of the matter is - it was SE who came up with the 'concept' FIRST now if HTC makes a device similar to the X1 then they are just 'copying' SE now, dont you agree!??
and, HTC cannot make a similar device to the X1 UNDER THEIR NAME RIGHT AWAY because of their contract with Sony Ericsson!!!
jeez... people here seriously needs to think a bit more...
VERY SMART BUT GUESS WHAT?dont compare the expected X1 with N82,try the powerful E90.okay dear!?then you're long list will no longer be there.
I was expecting the X1 mid MAY but it appears its going to take longer than i thought,by the time it hits markets it would be an old featured phone and nothing will really be cool or new,wait and see youre self.
REMEMBER!comaper the X1 with E90 and AGAIN!,REMEMBER that the E90 got to markets A YEAR AGO before this X1 even appeared to us,no really useful and big drawbacks will be found in the E90 but NOKIA is always the winner,prove is!coming up with the E90 a year before this X1.wait for the next new up coming phones after the N96 with 16GB hits the markets in JULY.then you will see that NOKIA is working on a further step than what you think.
FACT:NOKIA IS # 1 IN THE WORLD.not my saying not even you'res,but its a known fact.
Just happens that I know a lot about HTC and I see HTC written all over this device. Yes, of course SE want to take all the credit for the design, reality is different though. Have you ever wondered why this device has a camera with HTC uses for quite some time in other hi-end devices, yet SE claim to have 'developed the handset' ? Furthermore,just about all the 'innards' are HTC too - you name it and go check on the net and see for your self.No need to believe me. And why don't you ask SE how much they did pay for the WindowsMobile licence? You won't find any reference on the net because SE don't even have a WM licence ! How naive do you think the world is to believe SE when they trumpet - WE HAVE DEVELOPED XPERIA - if they don't even have a licence for the OS ! ! ! No matter who says what. If this device will sell well, HTC will make a killing. Yes HTC sells them to SE and they aren't cheap ! Icidentally the only part SE really played in Xperia is not working propery (I am refering to the 'pannels user interface'). Shortly you will be able to buy a 'non SE branded' Xperia (under a other name though) without the stupid 'pannels'. HTC Rules :-)
so far i know sony erricson cant build a decent cameraphone
and i also know they cant build a music phone without making you wear an adapter.
so clearly they didnt make this by themselves.
On Sony Getting Into the Windows Mobile Game
A couple of details that I learned from talking to various people at the Sony Ericsson booth that might be of interest:
They took care to emphasize that HTC didn't have a large hand in developing the hardware. “We designed it, HTC is just the ODM” was a phrase I heard twice. SE is (rightfully) very proud of this hardware and though they're utilizing HTC to do the manufacturing, they really want to make sure that they get the credit.
As for using HTC to manufacture it, my personal opinion is still mixed. HTC is very good at making great hardware and clearly has much more experience at this sort of thing than Sony Ericsson. Likely that's why SE made the decision to go with them. It's still surprising to me, however, as SE makes all sorts of phones and consumer devices and thus they likely had a lot of options. If nothing else, I see it as a testament to HTC's incredibly ability to crank out Windows Mobile devices as a manufacturer that they could beat out the other ODMs that Sony uses for their other products.
The other interesting bit is that SE developed the X1 as a “North American Device.” Most of the design and development work was done in San Diego and has a “North American mindset.” If there was any doubt that Sony Ericsson is aiming this device primarily at the US market, that doubt can now be laid to rest. SE has traditionally done much better in the Asian and European markets with their high-end phones, the Xperia X1 is clearly intended to reverse that trend.
Indra, my advice to you is wait till the product is out before making assumptions! The truth is we are not sure how this phone will perform. It is easy to write down high specs but harder to make the device run smoothly in a real life situation.
The reasons why the N82 is king of the all-in-one device is first of all because of the operating system. Symbian is user friendly. WM is not. So many cannot stand the WM OS.
Secondly more people prefer the T9 keypad to the QWERTY.
Thirdly it is clear that SE X1's camera will not compete with the N82's. Cameras on phones are so important to so many. SE X1 CANNOT conquer N82 without having a first class camera no matter what other features it has because the MAJORITY of people like snapping with their phones.You just have to swallow these hard facts. You keep on about screen resolution when you are not even sure whether SE will install the video drivers. What is the point of high res on a sluggish device? To add insult to injury the SE does not even have stereo speakers which is ridiculous for a modern contemporary high end device. MP3s are recorded in stereo not in mono!
You have also forgotten the hard copy. Look no matter how high the screen res on the X1 when you print photos they will not be as detailed as the N82, especially in dim lighting conditions because of the latter's superb Xenon flash.
SE X1 does not even have basic TV out. This feature works great on the N82.
In short the SE X1 is just a business phone whereas the N82 is the quintessential all-in-one.
Hey - this is not a SE device ! ! ! SE just buy it from HTC and resale it. Just like Vodafone does. I want everyone to know this is made by HTC ! Go look on all over the net if you don't believe me. SE does not even have a licence from Microsoft to use WM ! What a cheap marketing ploy by SorryEricsson. H T C Rules :-)
i may not be a windows mobile phone user..bit i must say that the X1 is a monster device!
nice one, SE.
I think you must go to bengalboy site ASAP..that X1 has great back light on the back of keypad.WOW!!!
Nokia fanboy say thet the N82 is better than X1, is it true? look at the fact below :
1. WVGA (X1) is 5 times better than QVGA.
2. 528 MHz (X1) is faster than 300+ MHz.
3. X1 has QWERTY, Touch screen and joystick and N82 has not QWERTY, no touch screen etc
4. X1 has longer life battery at 1500 Li-PO than N82 has.
5. X1 has 4 LED light
6. X1 use 6.1 WM OS.
7. X1 is made of premium steel but N82 is made of plastick.
8. X1 has HSUPA but N82 is no HSUPA
9. X1 has VGA resolution of video on WVGA resolution screen, It means WVGA will increase resolution of VGA video as much as 76800pxl. In other word, You can watch a movie better than the device quality it self and look at N82, VGA resolution of video on QVGA resolution screen, it means QVGA will decrease VGA resolution of video (307200 to 76800).In other word, Nokia fanboy never enjoy VGA resolution of video at real quality on the ohone screen.Wasting money
10. X1 can show more pixels of Megapixels camera picture because resolution of screen which can show pixels as much as 384000 pxl rather than N82 can only show 76800pxl on screen so althought you use 5MP camera,only 76800pxl can be showed because limitation of QVGA screen resolution.In other word 3.2 MP on phone WVGA resolution screen is much better than 5MP on phone QVGA resolution screen.
11. 65000 color is more than enough and not make the phone more expensive. Look at expensive 16M color, do you thing there is an object has 16M color variation? is you car ? You painted your car with red, blue, black, yellow, green, pink, brown, purple and what else because there are stil 8 color not 16MILLION color variation.You can't detect color as mush as 16M color variation at once sight and your eyes have limitation.
Wasting money for buying a phone with useless devices
You were right that N82 is better than classic X1 haha..
there is one bad thing.. you cant tipe in the dark.. keybad doesent have light
