I am using Aspen for roughly 2 weeks.
The overall experience of using Aspen is good compared to my earlier Windows phone HTC Touch Pro.
Here are some good points:----
1)The qwerty keypad is really very useful as against full touch screen phones, plus it has touch screen also. I find Aspen much better than my earlier slider keyboard phone, HTC Touch Pro, due to quarty keyboard.
2) The GPS receiver is good and it works inside the building also. Works fine with Google maps and other GPS applications, which are freely available on internet.
3) Microsoft office applications (Word, Excel, PP) work fine. You can create new documents and edit existing documents.
1) The backlight for keyboard is white, and I am using white+silver Aspen, so when the white light glows behind the letters they become unreadable against white keys.
2) Call records is not unlimited. Also there is no option to set the day limit for maintaining the call record.

I asked Sony Ericsson when the Aspen will be released in the UK.
Here are two of the comments from subsequent emails that I received.
1 - We can advise the Sony Ericsson Aspen has officially been released by Sony Ericsson and so we would suggest contacting various retailers to see if they stock this handset.
2 - Unfortunately there are no plans to release the Sony Ericsson Aspen in the UK market.
These are genuine quotes from the Sony Ericsson Support Centre.
Do you think they know what is going on??????

I agree that you accepted you are stupid. But i disagree that you were a stupid with sony ericsson rather i would say you became a stupid by going for a Finn crap. And for ur knowledge SE was never going bankrupt not even by far, just they were busy in developing the devices which will define the new standards for the industry, like the X10 mini, the vivaz twins for HD video recording which was immediately copied by Apple for iphone4 then as ususal by the rest of the industry.

You will see soon the difference: Nokia is so weak in terms of reception, voice call quality and even case manufacturing. If you do not intend to use your device to make calls, maybe you don't care about this, but otherwise... :-)
