AMAZING phone and will most likely end up at ATT with 850 US 3G. Can't Wait!
This is the most coolest phone ive ever seen till now..............i am eager to buy it.....
by 2nd half 2008, touchscreen Symbian S60 will be taking over our world. it is too little too late.
my figures are never wrong. i am the greatest you shall ever encounter. before me you tremble.
iPhone has outsold the entire WinCE platform (Windows Mobile and PocketPC) the last 2 quarters in US and is now the #2 smart phone there under RIM Blackberry. google search "iPhone Canalys Windows Mobile" and you will get plenty hits to back up my sound info.
Windows is so crappy that Apple knocked them down a notch with a single overpriced phone. do you really think it will succeed in Europe against the more powerful Symbian when it can't take on a single iPhone?
Sony Ericsson has futile ambitions here with this Windows malarky. abandon it while you can and stick with Symbian for reliability. you have now robbed me of this great XPERIA because you poisoned it with Winblows.
For everyone who's eager to get his hands on this one: I just contacted SE here in The Netherlands. This device is expected to be in shops second half of 2008..... so be patient!
This is the best business cell phone ever,
I think it will rock the cell world.
GO ON SE
Mick you are wrong my friend.A you are using WM smartphones(standard) figures B The screen will be totally AWESOME C Symbian is the most overrated OS EVER.Be quiet and stop embarrassing yourself
anyone try to compare this phone with LG KS20? I know KS 20 will be cheaper by at least 20% battery life SE will be much better, but KS 20 has office editor
Bluetooth + Wifi + 3G + QWERTY + 3.2MP + GPS Function... what else you want from this phone? Well done SE... your on my next want list!
Anything but iPhone
@Mick vick The reason WM was problematic was due to manufacturers shiping devices with chipsets that weren't really capable of running WM.Providing their is enough ram onboard WM is a joy to use.Symbian s60 is a toy OS.If you prefer the simple thing in life continue with s60 LOL
@johnny. Looks very impressive. It says built in gps but this phone is on the list for the gps enabler earbuds. If this phone isn't truly built in gps then that would be a big let down.
Windows is not favored in the US. Blackberry RIM is #1 in US. the iPhone is now #2 after only 6 months with one phone model knocking all Windows phones out the box combined. that's how much even the Americans dislike Windows Mobile, it is junk.
Sony Ericsson concentrates in Europe and nobody likes Windows Mobile in Europe. this should be the superior Symbian and then it might have a decent screen and a hell's chance against Nokia.
this phone it is doomed.
Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional??
is sonyericsson going to give up UIQ on the highend model?
Sony Ericsson finally steps in and shows (cr)Apple how to make a phone. This probably is the full fledged mediaphone as the iPhone, but plus the uber business convenience and power of Windows Mobile with Office.
And guess what? This has a proper and convienent QWERTY rather than a micro in-screen OWERTY you need to use your fingernails and squint your eyes to use on an iPhone.
Yes people... two things with the camera:
A. Megapixels mean crap all for picture quality. I can find a 5mp camera that can easily out do a 7mp camera anyday. Its all got to do with the LENS/SENSOR of the camera, and the SOFTWARE which processes the picture.
B. People... this is a business/media phone. NOT, i repeat, NOT a camera. I know some great 5mp cameras are out in the market, but why would this phone need one if you purchased this 'business' phone for 'business'? If you wanted a camera, you go buy a digital camera or a s.e. cybershot for your weekend phone if you insist on having the X1.
