The headline is VERY misleading. The actual article itself talks about the next WinMo phone from SE, doesn't specify that that's the next Xperia. It then goes on to say that the next Xperia might not even be WinMo. And besides all that, the article starts with "presumably". There's been no confirmation, this seems to me like the author of the original article is doing nothing more than guessing here. I apologise to the author if this is not the case, but the only thing in the article that would point in anyway to it being correct is the mention of the company SE supposedly WILL be using, but I find it very dubious...
Phil, 29 Dec 2008SE fans are so adorable. They can forgive everything. Poor ones!
X1 is the new P990 but this ... moreThe stupid phone has nothing to boast, of, and its biggest drawback is the crappy Windows!!!
Who wants windows on their phones! Havnt we had enough of it on the computers?
The best phones are being made by those who have their own design, be it Blackberry, Nokia or Apple. The difference is so evident.
Phones running on 3rd party stuff is all 2nd rate
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2009Yes Nokia design their own phones and yes they may make them too but Sony Ericsson make qualit... moreA terrible phone. Most of what it has is already there in other Sony Ericsson phones like P1i.
So it's not even released in Australia and they're already talking about the next one. Thanks SE.
Someone posted a comment about outsourcing. Why, where is HTC based? Still in Taiwan, correct?
It will help SE bring down costs
Trust they will ensure excellent build quality.....
i got good experience in my windows mobile i-mate 8502.... working good...
kanye-east, 04 Jan 2009x1 is just cool. Its the only phone that makes me fascinate even after more than a month of us... moreThe other option is to buy a HTC Touch HD, I think it is much better than the Xperia. Try it and you will see, Sont products are soooo over rated, and expensive, you simply pay for the name !
Any news when the next one will be launched...
I hope they have a better looking keys and form
x1 is just cool. Its the only phone that makes me fascinate even after more than a month of usage. Its just great. No hangs or errors so far.
What Ever they say about the Xperia Iam going to get one !!
it's wonderful ! I was waiting so far for that a touch phone from SONYERICSSON
what ever said by who ever.. Well Done Sony,
Xperia is the best, best of best !!!
based on test done by the NTC Quality Control Lab, Nokia Phones could only withstand the weight of a compact sedan (tested on Nokia 8800 Gold Arte). While other brands could even endure the weight of an 18-wheeler. Sony Ericcson boasted of having the highest mark on the preasure endurance test proving to be unbreakable up to 7000wps (the weight of a passenger ship. this was shocking but very true. the Reason why Nokia is still in the lead is because of its user-friendliness. But, nevertheless it is still considered as a disposable phone after a year usage.
i therefor conclude that thisphone did not pass the quality control. pls facilitate guys-

hope to be shiny like Nokia N97 Smartphone.
x1 gotta some problems in designing.
My personal observation...Sony does not need to compete in the multimedia smart phone category. They kept their market high previously by launching good image models and great sound quality phones and should keep it that way. The K810 series was an ice breaket to the 3.2 mega pixels market before the Koreans march in with the 5 and now 8 mega pixels. After the success of K810 the W series was aggresive to increase more models into the market together with newer models like the G,S and C series. With so many offers consumers are still keen to wait for newer models from Sony because they focus very much on image quality and sound quality why do they need to outsource to HTC and manufacture a phone that is complicated.
