The N97 is just another s60 albeit it has touch. I'm afraid it will appeal only to current s60 users...the combination of the double tap ui,
restrictive Symbian OS, no copy and paste from a webpage means it's unlikely to appeal to power users.
angels, 15 Jan 2009can anyone tell me where can i get x1 softwares
and how to activate the voice command Hi Angels, you can get loads of softwares for your X1. www.handango.com is your answer.
Microsoft Voice Command is also available on the site. Cool software.
angels, 15 Jan 2009can anyone tell me where can i get x1 softwares
and how to activate the voice command I recommend that you contact SE customer service - VIP service for X1.
Apple outsold ALL WinMo models (all companies)COMBINED with only one current model.
Sales up 380% while SE sold less than a year ago.
I guess people just too.... they do not know ....
can anyone tell me where can i get x1 softwares

arvin, 15 Jan 2009seems alot of commentor here are ignorant of Windows mobile OS.
anyways, keep complaining.... moreYes, you are just so much smarter than us and AT&T (largest US provider) :)
˝AT&T to ditch WinMo over Symbian, iPhone may stay˝
seems alot of commentor here are ignorant of Windows mobile OS.
anyways, keep complaining..... you people do not deserve WM os. go back to commoner-people-reach symbian flatforms.
you don't have brains to use this device and WM os for that matter.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you say so... fine with me.
But as the N97 won't be available for about half a year, I'd suggest you'll have to wait with your advertising and gloating till then...
In the meantime have fun dreaming about it. ;-)
just purchased the x1, its kinda ok, not AMAZING but better than anything out at the mo.
however, i need new software - like i want new games and stuff, does anyone know a dedicated site for games and software? thank you very glad in advance
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2009crap fone wifi dosent work n calls keep dropping its realy slow coz of crap windows mobile n u... moreI agree!
Too many problems for too many people.
The good thing that it is not sold in high quantities, actually I can not imagine that anybody would give any money for this ....
It is available for free with a contract - try it and take it back (most likely you would experience the same problems as we did)
SE is huge corp. PR is strong.
- reception problems (GSM and WiFi!)
- battery: poor performance, overheating
- cracked case
- low ring volume
- lousy speaker
- poor camera
You type in cracked case X' into a search and you will see...
- slow performance
- hang ups
Because for me the phone is for making calls, X1 is totally useless even for free due to its reception problems.
crap fone wifi dosent work n calls keep dropping its realy slow coz of crap windows mobile n u the touchscreen is sh!t plus windows apps r crap n dont even think about games coz its totaly junk for gaming i swaped xperia for n96 n i that was the best move i made my n96 is way betta if u like touch it for n97 its got a full deck multimedia computer plus all buisness fings if u need it the battery was only fing on xperia
well it's a great change in Sony Ericson Mobiles....this mobile really looks cool however the theme is disappointing me....

Oh, God... the lunatics are back
Want to buy mine ? Like I said, I'll sell it to you along with all the "upgraded" software :)
It is really hot man... really !!
We are very impressed with the Xperia X1. We love the huge high resolution touchscreen and the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. We love the Windows Mobile environment and applications. We love the WiFi. We quite like the memory and the GPS. We're less keen on the size and weight. And we're disappointed by the camera. But on balance, this is a 5 star phone, packed with features galore in a system that seems to be well designed and well tested. In other words, a smartphone that seems to be genuinely smart. We can recommend this one with confidence.
Alternatives include the Apple iPhone 3G (rubbish camera and various other niggles), the BlackBerry Storm (no WiFi), the Nokia N96 (too many problems) or the Samsung Omnia (smaller screen, but better camera and more memory.) Looks like you're spoilt for choice - both the Samsung Omnia and the Sony Ericsson X1 are outstanding phones, and interestingly they're both Windows Mobile devices.
The X1 is a touchscreen phone, and it's got one of the biggest and best screens ever seen on a mobile phone. At 3 inches across, it's almost as big as the iPhone 3G's 3.5 inch screen, but here's the thing: whereas the iPhone 3G has 480 x 320 pixels, the Xperia has a massive 800 x 480 pixel resolution: that's 2.5 times as many pixels. Big isn't always better, but when it comes to touchscreen phones, it definitely is. As well as providing a brilliant platform for the touch-operated user interface, the display also offers a superb environment for web browsing, video streaming, photo viewing, etc, etc.
A lot of thought has gone into the user interface design of the Xperia. As well as the finger-operated touchscreen, there's an optical joystick and a navigation key. To use the optical joystick you brush your finger over the touch-sensitive key to move the mouse pointer on the screen. The navigation key is a conventional 4-way key that can be pressed to select an option. Handwriting recognition with a stylus is available as an additional text-input method. But the X1 holds another secret within: a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. With the keyboard in position and the display in widescreen landscape mode, the phone resembles a mini-laptop and offers a lot of the functionality of a real laptop - but more of this later. For the moment, we'll just say that with all the different input options available, every user should be able to find a way of working that meets their needs. This is not a difficult phone to use, although its advanced options do present something of a learning curve.
The phone feels very solid too. It uses a premium metal body and feels like it could take some knocks. But the solidity and wealth of features leads to some bulk. It's a big phone, and quite thick too, at 17mm. And it certainly is heavy. In fact it's the heaviest smartphone currently in the shops by our reckoning. At 158g it weighs more than twice as much as the Sony Ericsson W890i for example. It's not a machine for wimps, but it manages to look very nice despite its porkiness. It's available in a choice of Black or Silver, both of which look nice and businesslike.
The user interface is designed around a "Panel interface". Each panel provides an environment customised to a specific activity, such as web browsing, messaging, playing music, etc. We don't think that this is quite as revolutionary as Sony Ericsson claim, but it looks nice, works well and we have no issues with it.
The X1 is a Windows Mobile smartphone. Windows Mobile has matured a lot since its early days and is now a robust and powerful OS. It's also used in the Samsung Omnia, which has proven itself to be a very stable and robust smartphone. Running Windows Mobile offers several advantages. As well as being stable and fast, it's a familiar environment for PC users, and brings a lot of familiar functionality from the desktop to the mobile. For instance, the X1 uses Outlook Mobile as its email application, and it uses Office Mobile to let you view and edit Office attachments. Business folk accessing their corporate mail via an Exchange mailserver can stay synchronised using Exchange ActiveSync. We hesitate to say that the X1 can match a BlackBerry for power and ease-of-use, but it's arguably true.
