It is clear that WM6 has its limitations. It is a processor and battery hungry OS that is not suitable for mobiles. That is why although 65K colours and 16M colours are native to the OS manufacturers opt for 65K because the power hungry WM OS would strain to sustain higher colour depth. Ask yourselves why Nokia's E90 supports 16M colours for TWO screens one of them being high resolution. It is because the Symbian system is more suited to mobile phones. This Xperia is no laptop replacement. The PPC pretends to be one but it never will be. If you truly want to do some serious business work you need a laptop and yes they are portable. As for the Xperia we are not certain how it will perform. Will the keypad be tactile and responsive? Can the Qualcomm processor reliably handle VGA res? It has never been tested at this res.
as I previously said, I own a k800i and lovin'it; a couple of week ago, though, I decided to buy a new phone : looked for iphone and nokia but thean found xperia which is by far better than apple and even e90...can't wait to get me one...hopefully for a reasonable price
Thank a lot SE! I have always wanted SE uses WM. I am young business man and use a lot of exchange emails, appointments and contacts. Nothing can compare to WM regarding to that.
I can live with 65K color screen, it is more than good enough. It is bright enough and save the battery. What I need is wifi, high speed 3G connection, bluetooth, GPS, radio, a good battery life and a good mp3 player with 3.5 mm headphone jack as well. What else do we need more? Nothing at all?
3.2 MP camera is also more than good enough, otherwise, buy a real camera. I can trust SE's camera quality, sound quality and build quality as well. X1 can be a reasonable quality camera, a good mp3 player and many more.
4GB M2 is good enough for my storage for Musics and photos and 400MB internal momery is more than enough for PIM, Emails and all the softwares I needed.
Who on earth gonna says X1 is not the best phone we ever have.
I will definitely buy it but I hope SE would consider affordable price for the phone.
N95 - gave it to my friend after 3 days of usage due to bad battery life and slowness. I can do lots of registry tweaks in WM to get the phone the way I want and a good advantage as well.
Iphone - not for me. Just a piece of junk.
So you guys want this phone to run with a 16mil color screen? Before posting a comment take your time and read afther this! "Windows Mobile supports only 65k color display"
A useless piece of technology.
A 65k colour for a big 3inches screen is quite out of hand.
The nokia N95 8GB and the new nokia N96 both have a big 16million colour for a 2.8 inch screen.
As it has a big 3inch screen, we should higher graphics should be expected within. All companies go forward, except for Sony Ericsson - keeps jumping backwards.
The good features that this device has, is the up to date touchscreen, that makes life easier.
Nokia s60 aren't in competition with this model.It's main competitors will be Eten,I-mate,Asus and yes HTC!
Just my personal opinion..A WM6 far more sophisticated than Symbian B Alpha numeric keypads are not useful for heavy prolonged input C WVGA display totally out preforms any QVGA screen regardless of colour count D 3.15 MP camera is more than sufficient as I don't print large photographs E multmedia is more than acceptable, remember all SE have decent audio and we know it's has 30FPS camcorder F The OS can be upgraded when new editions are released therefore this device could easily last me 2 or 3 years.It's really the total package
im sure this phone would be expensive....damn u SE! pls make this phone affordable! i beg of you
"I see the dimwits still don't understand that the resoluton is the key to having a great display.N73 like all other n-series phones uses QVGA resolution,in other words the screen on XPERIA is FOUR Yes FOUR times better."
it's acttualy 5 times biger in resolution
IgfI:ya wright :))
Some SE phones have also QVGA screens and the quality is much better.... Even the W910 beats the N73 in screen quality lol
can anybody tell me the batterry back-up??

definitely it is microSD cek it out,
It should be microSD. I'm using an 8GB microSD on my SE K850i, which is technically "dual format" and can use M2 as well. I'm guessing Sony Ericsson will either go dual format, or stick with microSD as a single format on the Xperia, if only to stay competitive.
For the love of god, 65k screen?? 65k????? guys...cmon man... this is ridiculous.
The screen is 65k, because Windows Mobile doesn't support more colours.
