The highly discussed Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 PocketPC based on Windows Mobile 6.1 finally got closer to the public thanks to a video preview, which became available today.
Just as a refresher the high-end X1 has a 3-inch WVGA touchscreen display (800 x 480 pixels), as well as the optical joystick navigation - the navigation solution is cool and you can see that on video.
Almost all connectivity features are present on the Sony Ericsson X1 - from a 3.5mm audio jack to GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, everything is on board.
Typing is sweet with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, while the 9 available home screens should suit every scenario and all user preferences. The multimedia set includes FM radio without RDS and Media player.
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 also has a 3.2 megapixel camera and will come with 400MB of internal storage available to the user. It is expandable through the microSD card slot.
The handset will have support for all the four GSM network bands and four 3G network bands as well. HSDPA and HSUPA ensure the quickest data transfers around.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 will be powered by a Qualcomm 7200A 528MHz CPU and has 128MB of RAM. Unfortunately, as you would see from the video, the X1 desperately cries for some dedicated video acceleration.

this phone is made by HTC (the same company that made PDA Phone for many brands), so, it safe to assumed that this phone will be no better than HTC's own flagship.
