Yes, I totally agree that the Winmo interface is not as simple as that of an S60/UIQ phone. Some people find the interface of Winmo too intimidating, and that's why they prefer S60. Nothing wrong with that. I had the SE P1i (running UIQ) for over a year, it was a great phone. And my wife's got a Nokia N82 now, which is an excellent phone too esp because of it's camera and xenon flash. She takes pics with that often, and uses the phone to listen to FM (using her own good-quality headphones 'coz the phone has a 3.5mm jack). So the N82 suits her fine - it's a good phone for her. She finds my phone too complicated to use, even to search for a contact. Talking about contacts, if she has "Sean Paul" and "Paula Abdul" in the contact list on her N82, and search for "Paul", she would only get "Paula Abdul" whereas on my X1 running Winmo 6.1, it gets both the contacts - I find this very useful.
I quite like the analogy of Ford Mondeo v/s Jag and Accurist v/s Rolex with the N97 v/s X1. I personally don’t like Rolex watches, too old-fashioned for my style, would prefer an Omega or Tag :-) But yes, the X1 is a superb phone, and quite like a Jag. In fact I wont hesitate saying it's the Bugatti Veyron of all mobile phones in the market today. With the fastest processor and highest capacity battery of any phone today, huge RAM, excellent screen resolution, 3.5mm audio jack and great hardware keyboard, the X1 is like a supercharged phone and very very potent, just needs the right hands to drive and control it. Of course in the hands of a grandma, the Veyron is a complete waste, and perhaps too risky. She definitely would prefer a Ford Fiesta (let along a Mondeo) over the Veyron, something she can control better. Just the same with X1 too. It may not suit everyone. I also won’t say N97 is like a Mondeo - the specs on it look very promising too.
Anyway, my point is that… Symbian OS (S60 or UIQ) are definitely simple to use, but there is nothing wrong with Winmo. If someone feels Winmo is crap, trust me it's not. It's just that you're not techie enough to use it, that's all. And that's fine. Get a Nokia with S60. But people, stop saying that X1 with Winmo is bad 'coz it's CERTAINLY NOT.

Hey guys, need to know abt XPERIA's performance.. Actually i am planning to switch over from my E66 to a higher end phone and i am completely confused over whether to go for N97, HTC Dream which are yet to be launched or shall i go for XPERIA which looks pretty descent in performance.. Hey could guys suggest me something...
what makes u say xperia is crap?n97 is for media lover.but xperia is for professionals.
This phone is soooo outdated by today standards. And Htc refuses to make another phone for SORRYEricsson :-) This is the first and last WM cell for SE ! You better stick to it, after all you have no choice. The N97 is coming and is coming fast ! In video recording and camera department, even my old N95 is better! And how do you switch on the motion sensor in your Xcaria X1?
You shouldn't compare s60 symbians with WM devices. People's preferences differ hence why we have simple java phones, halfway house symbian mobiles then the powerful flexible linux and Windows mobile devices.
To my friend who thinks nokia n97 is way more advance, & is ready to use once stepped out of the shop, my dear chilll, i guess than u better go purchase some phones use them & than comment here. Most of the firmware updates are released by Nokia, people call it user friendly cause people like u don’t know to use other hi-tech devices so stick to some silly user friendly scrap. Grow up & try to be practical next time! X1 rocks.
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2009You people are 'out of your mind' to call this phone 'the best WM device HTc ever made'. Do yo... morehow sad are you...
you just compared x1 of 2008 with a nokia phone of 2009...i understand what you mean that no nokia phone of 2008 which is better than X1 so you try to compare x1 with N97.
SE X2 will kill N97
wait and see!!!
unomissu, 08 Feb 2009can anyone tell me whats diffrence between RAM and ROM ? in nokia devices never mention about ... moreThe ROM is the firmware. To the other chap...obviously a n97 or any Nseries will sell more but this does not mean it is better.A Ford Mondeo is very popular and produces higher sales figures than Jaguar, Accurist's sales dwarf that of Rolex but I'd rather have the JAG,Rolex and of coarse the Xperia X1.....I presume your type would be more inclined to be seen with a Ford Mondeo,Accurist and N97 :-P
Anonymous, 08 Feb 2009You people are 'out of your mind' to call this phone 'the best WM device HTc ever made'. Do yo... moreYou my friend have issues. have you actually been using the phones that are based on the windows mobile OS?? Please don't judge phones on the types of OS unless you have actually used them all..... And next time please think before posting such **** (please excuse the foul language). BTW its not HTC its SE.....
This phone totally pwns tha crap out of any thing the 65k color screen pwns n95/96 iphone etc etc IT PWNS THEM ALL! want to know why? well the resolution is way way way way more higher 480x800 vs nokia 320x240 / Iphone 320x480 and that makes the 65k colors nice
You people are 'out of your mind' to call this phone 'the best WM device HTc ever made'. Do yourself a favor a look at the latest HTC devices out there and come back to reality. And the SorryEricsson branding doesn't do any good either. Just wait for the N97 in a few months. I predict not only is waaaays more advanced but it will outsell the P1 in the first 90 days of its release - if not sooner. S60v3/v5 is ways more user friendly then WM. For a change you don't have to be a computer freak to use it and it works as you walk out of the shop. No need for FW upgrades ! There is a reason Nokia is where it is and Sorryericsson is where it is :-)
Do you install TouchFlow3D in x1 ? does it work as well as its owner HTC ?
can anyone tell me whats diffrence between RAM and ROM ? in nokia devices never mention about ROM. is rom that storage memory ? and can you whatch an entire movie in Divx format by x1 ? thanx
WM 2003 was a joke, WM5 was a tad slow but WM6.1 is UBER stable. Symbians OS is unreliable and inevitably the user suffers from random reboots.
