Good about Aspen :Great speed and stylish and professional look .. between BB and Nokia E72...loud Sound.. Vedio playback and recording is fine.
Patience to accept: Touch screen feel is ok when in WIN 6.5 .
Not acceptable : During daylight cannot see Incoming caller id or UI due to mirror finish on screen..
you have to run to dark place to look for number ..
Guys.. do you have any alternate to get rid of Daytime callerid problem..??

alexx, 14 Jan 2011honest opinion, this phone or the nokia e5?I go for SE Aspen vs Nokia E5 feature wise except cam.
Pls post other opinions pls..
dear SONY ERICSSON
please create QWERTY phones comes with SE's proprietary OS in many price range.
i.e. copy of naite / cedar inside but wears a qwerty suit outside, as well as 'copy' of elm, zylo and other "traditional" SE variants.
i bet many people are waiting for them too. and the Qwerties will be potentially to beat all other today's phones.

It may have some virus.

Then only battery in and include charger (don´t switch the phone in). If phone leave blinking keypad and screen - after a while 30 min switch phone in. If phone run - good, if not - bad. If run - switch phone out and then remove charger out. Then battery out, SIM card in, battery in, charger in and switch phone in. If run - good, if not - bad. If run - switch phone out and then remove charger out and add memory card. Then switch the phone in. Maybe this help.

once get discharged fulky,it wont on..just dnt get switched on..qurty flashes,screen flashes bt notyn hapn for 3hr atleast..so much hopeless..
it looks a quality phone..
weight should have been reduced
battery is very good...
camera clarity is not nice even like 2mp cam in SE released before, while at zoom
wifi gps is fine...
touch screen is ok but not good..
headset is good to here but can't hear for long time as the base effect is low and some steep sound is anoying..but may be we can equalize it but hav'nt tested...
its a win mobile .. working better ..
display is not that much bigger ...
as like other phones we have to handle it carefully..
..its ur choice to choose my dear friends..
i confused with which one operating sys. i perchase win or almond. i show sam. i9000 or aspen, which one. urgent

Alex, 09 Jan 2011Thanks on that. But can i use the default windows mobile 6.5.3 interface? Can i delete the spb... moreDefault windows mobile 6.5.3 interface is available if you press small Windows icon in down/left part of screen in bar like in other windows phones. You can it switch continually if you need. But operating with shells is more-more comfortable. Menu design is like WinXP and switching sundry colours is available. You don`t need delete the spb mobile shell altogether, because you can make panels very simply or extremely complicated for your own needs. GSM Arena saying while as task switching is poor, but its not true. If you create on spb shell panel screen task manager icon - it makes multitasking and task switching simply and fast.
Alex, 09 Jan 2011Rajesh, how did the production camera and audio fare? coz thge pre-production reviewed is kind... moreCamera, as I stated in my earlier posts is below average. Thats the only one dissapointment with Aspen. Atleast Sony Ericsson could have given the camera like the old P1i. But Audio quality through speaker as well as through headphones is decent. Quiet nice considering it being a business mobile. Regarding Garmin, I did not try it. If anybody using Aspen have tried it, kindly post your review for us all please. Regarding Panels, I dont dare to try to remove them as I love them the way they are. However if you dont like them try uninstalling them by choosing setings>Remove Programs and choose SPB Mobile Shell and remove them. However please do it as your own risk as I dont know if after you remove these Power Shells original Windows format will be effective. I suggest to keep SPB mobile shell as it really makes Aspen very special and convenient to use. However you are your own judge. Good Luck.

In Aspen you can find the application called Market Place where you can download applications available on line ( free as well as for purchase ). Regarding new panels you can visit SPB website and check them out as I really dont need any new ones as very much satisfied with ones included. Regarding calls getting disconnected, so far I did not experience this with my handset. Try to check if its the problem with the handset or your network operator.
