everyones right man, WTF goto the market and be like sh*t the Dimond and Touch Pro are way to expensive, might be better to get them when the Touch HD arrvies but no worries X is on the way.....and what 630Euros are you freakin insane SE? Get a PS3 for $350 and have enough for a N95..
I agree in a way some features are not up there with the best. Keep in mind that a 3.2MP is easier on the battery, when compared to a 5MP sensor. I feel that a 3.2MP sensor is pretty good, maybe not the best. but hey if you want more go buy yourself a digital camera.
The X1 is a business phone, for those of you who fine it expensive, I think they should stick with their Nokia alternatives. SE makes good products. If you look at their products, you will see that they build a phone around their well know products, like the Cybershot cameras or the Walkman players. Other companies, design a phone and integrate the Camera/Music player into their phones.
If it wasn't for SE, Nokia would be taking the consumers for a ride. The SE T68i, set the ball rolling with the camera, and Nokia followed. They did the same with the Walkman series, and who was there to follow.... N O K I A
They had one P series business phone, and a certain company was threatened, that they launched to 9 series phones, and later set up a business phone segment all together. Now they have the X1, and we should get ready for the follower... some time soon I think.
I think SE is not comparing themselves with iphone features but the market that Apple has captured.
i really cant make it why - why SE is selling this X1 at so much higher price????
i mean if u compare SE X1 with Samsung Omnia they are of almost same price but vast difference in features.
i agree X1 has X-panel and sliding keyboard but Omnia has Widgets, 5mp cam, 16Gb internal storage, plays divx,xvid and many more audio and video formats and both runs on windows mobile 6.1 pro OS also Samsung provides many goodies with Omnia box pack unlike Xperia X1.
I hav given my soul to SE phones and i got very disappointed by this news.
i even stated saving money for Xperia......there is still time, hope SE do something regarding there pricing strategy.
Hear that every CEO says that they are committed to develop the good quality technology at low cost? But what is this 630 Euros mobile? Seems this is total unfair practice...
Will the Skyfire browser work? i read on the site it doesn't run on the higher res. phones! duh its a smartphone ie. skype, photo editing, office in your pocket, of course free messaging, why would you need 5mp Camera... price is irrelative to convience
Leo yew, 28 Oct 2008a phone cost at expensive price than a pc ? what the hell is happening? Is the mobile producer... moreYes, you are a silly consumer who can't buy a 10 dollar phone, forget 800 dollars.
Go and play with your toys and leave the discussion to us adults.
[deleted post]this phone rulez compared with samsung omnia!!! Omnia has crap 240x400 resolution, ram is only 128mb, rom is only 256mb, samsung looks like dog crap, X1 is the real king. SE = The best!
The price is OK, look at the specification one more time, please tell me which competitive phone gives you all this compiled in one.
a phone cost at expensive price than a pc ? what the hell is happening? Is the mobile producer foolish us or they think we are silly consumer ?
This information isn't right.
The Xperia is 739.95 euros and the HTC Touch Pro is 759.95 euros
[Or that are the prices that my computer shows me when I'mma sell those phones]
Come on, 28 Oct 2008This is a quality "high end" device so why are people complaining about the price.
Who woul... moreThank God there's someone out here who agrees with my philosophy. The whiners out here have never bought a high end device (mobile phone or laptop) and thus can't comprehend the reasoning behind pricing this device at 800 bucks.
Show me any mobile device that can better the X1 at a lower price point. iPhone has the world's most crap cam and does not have a QWERTY keyboard (which is a MUCH FASTER solution than any touch screen PERIOD) while the 5800 XM isn't available RIGHT NOW, so Nokia and Apple are out. Moto is in the gutter with their Aura while Samsung's models suffer from low resolution (Omnia) and lack of a touchscreen (INNOV8). As I have been saying all along, it's a fight between the HTC Touch Pro and the X1. Take your pick. The only thing that can blow the entire field in the coming months is the HTC Touch HD.
This is a quality "high end" device so why are people complaining about the price.
Who would ever expect a PocketPC to be cheap in price?
I think those price whiners out there, are out of their depth, or expect things on a silver platter, how about working a little extra and saving the money to buy a high end device like the X1, you have had since February after all.
If you dont want to pay that price, then look at some low to middle range phones.
Can you imagine going up to a Lamborghini salesperson and saying, "Im not paying that money for a car which is not much faster than other cars out there at half the price!"
The phone is super cool & features are superb compared to any other mobile which looks this good. Its a fine device at the right time!
We'll It is good that it's here. The price is certainly to high for non cutting edge phone, according to today standards. 630 euros? I think I waited too long for this phone (February 2008) just to pay too much. I already gave up on this phone. It looks like outdated to me. Nothing different, or special about it. If this phone is leading device in the range of the Sony Ericsson brand it doesn't mean that it would be leading on the market in comparison to other leading brands. I also think that this price would fall so quickly that it doesn't worth speaking about. Wait for a while, because we were already waiting since February, and you'll see.
Bluez, 28 Oct 2008Comparing the price of this phone to the price of another is a non-issue. Just because a phon... moreTook them long enough, i was waiting for it when i first heard it. I am happy to say i got a Blackberry bold instead
Even its expensive .. I'm going to get it.. I know that S.E always has something others don't.
rebung7 , 28 Oct 2008sony sells their brand not the product.
That's funny. I thought it was a phone. I hope I can at least make calls on my brand.
As far as the other comments on price are concerned, as smart as you think you are for saving a little money on a cheaper phone, I think it's smarter to not worry about an extra hundred dollars or two on a device that you'll use every single day for at least the next two years. That's what... one extra day of work for most average people so they can enjoy a better device for the next 730 days?
