the price quoted at http://www.dechowireless.com/store/ is $1799.99
what an exorbitant price!
SE fans are too much excited because this is the first phone from SE to have good functionality. However this comes at a price and hence N-series especially N82 are cheaper and better alternates for the common user.
why there is a fight going on here in spite of the fact that this phone is not even available currently?
i cant understand why these SE loyalists are making a hue and cry here as if they own SE and are responsible for the success of this phone.
pls tell me whether you have atleast seen this phone.
pls understand the fact that this phone doesnt exists anywhere in the world now.
N95, N82 are all established with proven reliability as you can see from the skyrocketing sales of these devices. We can talk about xperia's performance only next year.
Yes!! Iam very happy to buy X1 because I can enjoy my VGA video and megapixel picture better. Imagine! WVGA will increase VGA resolution ability of video as much as 76800pxl ( 307200 to 384000) , not like VGA to QVGA, so QVGA screen will decrease VGA resolution ability of video as much as 230400 pxl!!(307200 to 76800) and by WVGA resolution, the screen can show more pixel of megapixels (MPs) camera picture as much as the screen ability so it’s 5 times higher than MPs camera picture on Qvga ability.
Hey!! Why many people just thinking about higher device quality without watch the purpose it self, If I bought a phone because the phone has VGA resolution video device but the phone screen ability only has QVGA resolution, can I enjoy that VGA resolution of video at real quality on the phone screen ? NO!! even the phone look like a phone doesn’t has VGA video. In other word, don’t be proud first if your phone just has QVGA resolution because actually the phone is nothing that make multimedia quality is decreased. I always repeat this topic because resolution is very important which can influence the others expensive device purpose but no one realize it.
here goes the warnings from moderator... better be careful next time..
anyway, SE is finally make a confirmation, all i have to do now is wait, and ask ^^
Poor Nokia Guys! Can't have a touch screen, a nice OS and a decent battery life? May be wait for another 5 years to get it. LOL....
I have e90 but when i inserted 8gb micro sdhc. My card become corrupted and cannot used again. What wrong with e90?
I was about 2 buy E90 because of it's impressive features. But when I saw the actual unit, i was turned-off by it's ugly design! so ugly particularly in the hinge portion. My friend told me it looks like a carpenters toolbox. Others say it's a weapon of selfdefense.
But i wouldn't mind it's oversize as long as a touchscreen would make it cool atleast. But sadly there's no touchscreen so i'll rather wait for Xperia :)
I am not bothered about the E90 and i don't like it also.
what I am trying to tell is why you guys are so much after this phone as it is not even available for getting the first level user feedback.
better wait for a year for this phone to get released and then talk about this phone which makes sense.
right, i think this phone is mainly for bussinessman. Although, it may being used by a millionaire or something like that...
and for the record, many bussiness man are more preferes PDA like this one, than a normal phone...
i don't know about it's rival N96 (i don't know if it CAN be marked as rival, though), it's for entertaiment not for bussiness, yet the price is very high (araound $800)...
i guess i choose Playstation 3 or PSP than N96 ^^
it is true that the xperia has generated lot of response and expectations. hene it is obvious that SE will fix a premium price for this phone. in my opinion this phone will attract a small segment of business users only.
people drooling over the xperia will wipe their mouth once the phone is out. becoz it is going to cost a fortune to you. will be more than $1000. at the same time n-series like N95 and N82 will become much cheaper and well established proven reliable phones as well.
Nokia don't use high resolution screens in n-series because A they cost far more than low quality qvga screens B they can't get a small powerful battery C they want the cells operate fast(two major cpu hogs VGA screen and touchscreen) D Most buyers are still oblivious to the benefits of high res screens
Nokia fanatics have a hard time understanding the fundamentals.The majority believe 16million colours is key to having a vibrant detailed screen similarly they can't comprehend how a 3.2MP Camera can out preform a 5MP camera but please bare in mind I'm not stating x1 stills camera will outgun n82's only that it is possible.E-ten V900,Xperia X1 are just the starting point in a longline of fantastic all capable WM devices.Personally I'm looking at the MDA COMPACT IV
@David Your wrong buddy the x1 does what no N-Series handset can..Takes a video recording in VGA resolution and shows the video in it's true quality all in the same device.With the x1 you can Watch a downloaded movie on your mobile and again see in it's intended resolution.Are you aware when you view photo's on your n-series phone you can only see 76800 pixels?n95,n82,n96 are like multimedia computers with no monitor!TV-Out is a stretched view,in other words it's still 76800 pixels.I can't stress enough how essential a proper resolution display is.If your going to incorporate high multimedia capabilities it makes sense for the manufacturer to give you the display to view them,this is where nokia and SE differ also you can bet your bottom dollar the X1 Wi-Fi antenna will be far better than the 5m nokia crap even My 4yr old PPC locks onto wireless networks better
