my friend has nokia Nseries with 16M colors and 5MP camera, he showed me how great the camera picture is but when he saw his camera picture on my x1 screen, he suprised he said "wow amazing, how can the picture is better than on my phone, the colors look sharp, clear and deep, it is look like more than 16M colors"
what will be happen if i show my VGA video on WVGA screen to him? i think he will be dead with his phone hehe
until now i use Manila 3Dtouch floo, iphone and android UI on X1, i enjoy it very much n i heard symbian UI will be ported to x1 soon with WVGA resolution so if someone said x1 is not good then NOKIA symbian, G1, iphone and HTC will be not good too haha
X1 is not a phone but many phone on 1 phone...

We never get tired of software updates that promise to speed up or add functionality to our smartphones. One of the hottest smartphones of the year has just gotten its first firmware update. The Sony Ericsson (NYSE: SNE) XPERIA X1 has apparently been spotted on EMMA, which is Sony Ericsson’s service software intended for service centers to update devices. The new Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 firmware has apparently hit version 1.03.936.6 and bears the R2A designation.
The new firmware build has been reported to speed up boot-times and decrease signal-acquisition times, but an official change-log has yet to emerge. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 owners in the US will be looking for the “X1a GENERIC NAM CDF1219-1224 KOV_R2AA008.rar” file on EMMA (Google (NSDQ: GOOG) is your friend).
This is EMMA
This is EMMA
Those of you lucky enough to actually own a Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 should take note - regardless of what error messages you might see, updating to the v1.03.936.6 ROM will indeed update your XPERIA X1 with the newest firmware.
As always, back-up your data before updating your firmware. It might also be a good idea to give the xda-developers thread on the XPERIA X1 firmware update.
Ray UK, 26 Jan 2009Hey Indra,
That's pretty cool that you're using TouchFlo3D, iPhone and G1/Android panel - a... more
1.Install Manila HD.cab
3.Install second today
4.Install motoScript-4.1 PPC
6.If you install Angelusz anX1 landscape.cab so you must add tf-portr.mscr on \Windows\StartUp
it is fast and smooth, there is no problem with my X1
im just in the same situation as you, its my first windows mobile phone and as far i can tell, its the very best phone !!!
i like to buy new things and by idle discover things :)

No problems wt so ever. Also battery life is really good even after 1.5 months.
And using it is not hard at all. This was my 1st windows mobile and i had my share of confusions as well but after getting it and snooping around the web a bit I am learning to use it to its potential.
I can guarantee that you, as a new user, will love upgrading and finding out new things abt X1 everyday.
I m still discovering it myself :P
Aeolian, 28 Jan 2009Chk out this forum.
Has a separate section for SE X1 :D
u'll love it.
Ooopppss forgot to paste the link :P
Macky - To be able to download all available panels, your SIM card should be internet-capable as you can download all panels straight from XPERIA X1. Just use the Internet Explorer or Opera Browser, you will go directly to sonyericsson website and from there you can install the rest of the panels.
xperia is nt gd da case craks n dpad is loose plus paint peels of n dat plus wifi dnt wrk n either dose da reception it proberly da mst expencive paperwieght in da wrld
The good news is that you can set up the Xperia to receive emails just like a Blackberry would.
Hi..i have this phone too and i am so happy that i purchased it..i agree that the camera is not as good as the camera of my ex k810i, but its still good.The softkeyboard is not really thumb-sized and its quite difficult to use, but i still love it..
guys, can u help me install additional panels or software to my phone? i really dont know how to do it or where i can go to to install such softwares..
I am so confused i ahve done so much looking around I need to know wether or not the experia has good battery life after like a month or two??
is it realy hard to work and set pannels and stuff like that? any info would be much appreciated thanks.
I just bought X1 for a week, found out that its dpad area is prone to peel off on the edges. My suggestion is please do not exert to much fingernail pressure when working on the dpad area. Making the built quality questionable for a premium pda
avinersan, 27 Jan 2009more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a give... moreHi avinersan, you have added another dimension to my post - the size of the image sensor.
I was trying to say the same thing - that a 3.2mp is not necessarily poor (unlike what most people think). I use my phone's camera only if I dont have access to my DSLR or my compact, and mostly set at 2mp 'coz as you said, higher mpixel pics will take longer to process in the phone (camera).
What people should remember is that however good a phone's camera is, it is not a replacement for a regular digital camera. In fact it can not compete even with a low-end ultracompact camera.
But on the other hand, when you dont have any other camera on you, the phone's camera is the best one. It's better to take a not-so-good picture of an important/memorable moment, than to not take a picture at all.
So people, please stop complaining about the X1's camera only because it's a 3.2mp.
avinersan, 27 Jan 2009more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a give... moreYou are right, chip high mega pixels cams are worse and useless when setting them for their highest resolutions.
more mpx on a small sensor is actually a bad thing ! - the more dense the pixels are on a given surface (and in this case as with all mobiles it's a very small surface) the less light is captured (for example a compact camera with 6mpx lets in less than half the light in comparison to a full frame 5d at the exact same settings)
and 8 mpx on a phone isn't a real resolution (if you go to 100% you get a lot of blur and there isn't fine detail at all (if you interpolate a photo you gate the same results almost ))
there are cameras that obtain in 2mpx a lot more detail than a 12 mpx compact camera (not even phone)
ps:a 24 inch 1920x1200 monitor may display only about 2mpx (1920x1200=2.304.000 pixels (2.3 mpx) it only maters if that's a good quality 2mpx photo or not (of course, for cropping ,editing you need more... but who does that with a mobile phone ?)
so more mpx = more processing = less light,lower quality (not even at base iso are this cameras capable of offering 8mpx becouse of the low quality sensors (by the way i have lenses that are worth thousand of $ and don't offer a lot more than 12mpx so do the math ( canon 70-200 f2.8 is for example)

The X1 comes with 3 months trial of Wayfinder. But you could go for TomTom too. I have TT6 installed on my X1 and it works great. The GPS gets a lock fairly quickly too.
Is there any application available similar to Nokia Maps i.e. Guided Navigational System - which can be installed on SE Xperia X1? Any help shall be highly appreciated.
Actually am an old SE user, but inbetween switched from P910i to Nokia and just got back to SE again - google maps doesn't help much in guided navigational system - something must be there!
