i am not going to buy this phone because it is not having 5MP cam with Xenon flash.
i work for SE in Sweden. we normally dont recommend buying high end SE phones like Xperia because they are too costly. actually the manufacturing cost is only 20-30% of the initial selling cost.
why this phone is costing $1800?
i will buy this if it is less than $600.
i am not buying this phone because it is having only WVGA display and not QVGA.
Indra, your comments concerning resolution are ridiculously misleading. You have failed to master basic concepts. The irresponsible way you throw out figures is incredible! Do you not know that it is the size of the screen that gives meaning to the resolution. Thus an 8 inch screen with VGA res will not look as sharp as a 3 inch one. Nokia's N82 is only 2.4 inches so the sharpness of image is not as simple as saying WVGA is five times the res of QVGA. You have to factor in the considerable difference in relative screen sizes. QVGA res on a 2.4 inch screen produces satisfactory results. There is no need for VGA res. Prerecorded and device recorded videos look great on the N82. What is the point in implementing VGA thus shortening battery life and raising the price of the device? On the other hand SE X1 has a much bigger screen so WVGA would be advantageous. The problem SE will have is with battery life and the speed of the device. VGA screens are both intensely processor and battery hungry.
Hi work for sony ericsson in china and was using this phone for a week its the best phone ever. there r a few little problem but they should be sorted by the time it come's out
Release will not be until "late September or early October" By that time other competitors will lunch better phone than this SE X1!
Come SE when you announced a phone, release it two months later maximum!
i bought this phone in my dream yesterday. any how i dont like it and sold it again.
I am a heavy smartphone user and at the moment their is nothing on paper that compares to this phone. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE RELEASE. Hopefully South Africa is not to far behind on the relase list!!
since i saw this phone in the web i like it already. for me this is the type of the phone very interesting. im gonna buy it. i compare to E90 nokia but what i know this X1 is the best phone coming from the Sony Ericson.
the phone looks amazing. i like it, i want to have it. When will it be available in South Africa? This is a brilliant deseign.
Everyone is waiting for this phone but no one knows why SE is not launching .. this is the best phone i can imagine so far but i wish X1 is not gonna break SE fans heart in any way .. cheers
I spoke with a Sony Ericsson sales guy in London yesterday and he confirmed that the UK release will not be until "late September or early October"
Yes we now know n95,n82,n81,n96 are SHEEP in wolves clothing.They don\'t deliver because their displays don\'t have the resolution to show quality video etc
You must know :
QVGA = 320 x 240 = 76800
VGA = 640 x 480 = 307200, it’s 4 times than QVGA
WVGA = 800 x 480 = 384000, it’s 5 times than QVGA
You can enjoy X1 VGA playback or recorded movie more clean, clarity and sharp on WVGA resolution screen, VGA to WVGA is great!! not like Nokia, VGA to QVGA screen (307200 to 76800). It means on the screen still show 76800px (QVGA) although you play video with VGA resolution. You think Nokia VGA video movie on QVGA resolution screen as good as Xperia X1 has on WVGA resolution screen. You'r stupid!! You can watch X1 VGA video movie on WVGA screen 5 TIMES better than Nokia has. In other word, Nokia user never enjoy it at real quality but they spent their money for this.REALLY…REALLY STUPID and they never realize it then give advices here.WHAT A SHAME!! HAHAHA…..
I inform you once more that QVGA can show only 76800px on the screen!! So when you take a picture by 5MP camera, its still QVGA pxl to be showed on the screen and not 5MP picture. 5MP will be better if you print it out for making big poster not on the phone screen. In other word 3.2MP at WVGA is 5 TIMES BETTER than 5MP at QVGA on the phone screen!! I don’t want to spend much money for the phone with expensive useless device like Nokia.You can use devices like VGA video and Mega pixel picture more enjoyable and maximum on WVGA screen.
Look at Xperia, it has latest windows mobile 6.1 so I don’t need to buy PDA anymore and I can use it cool application more satisfied than others , HSDPA and HSUPA which those devices can support video calling and internet device more usefull and faster, made of finishing premium metal not like nokia plastic toy, WVGA resolution screen which make VGA video device and mega pixels camera can be used more maximumly and better, higher processor, better battery life, thiner, lighter, it has Three ways operation like QWERTY, Touch screen and Joystick so I can do more what nokia can’t do and many more. WOW GREAT… XPERIA IS THE BEST!!!!
If many people always say their E90 is great, good and whatever…so X1 IS MORE THAN THAT.
I agree with abbasean who said:
“X1 has everything you need today and most probably tomorrow, an excellent OS with all kind of 3rd party applications available today where as E90 has very few.
With xperia panel you get most of the X1 where as E90 just hangs on everything even being the most expensive phone in market.A very compact size with X1 and you can use full screen video viewer to watch full length movies, where E90 uses real player and doesn't use a pure full screen features with good quality output. Since E90 has been launched (nearly an year ago I believe) so many problems with handsent what-so-ever NOKIA is not willing to resolve the issues.…” (Abbasean)
YOU MUST TRY IT!!GOOD LUCK BRO…
I'm looking forward to Xperia X1,and Qualcomm's "snapdragon" platform,even TI's OMAP 3 stuff should be great.The chipsets are incredible.
