At last I've got my XPERIA X1 (black) only yesterday. So far, I have one issue on any of the XPanel. The first time you turn-on your unit, the clock is default to New York and you need to customize it where you live. After I customized, it's ok. But everytime you re-opened or re-launch the clock to be on your standby screen, it will show you first the default clock (i.e. New York) for a second (perhaps) before it will show you the ones you have cutomized it, say Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) maybe a second again. Is this always the case?
i happened to find a china site syttq.com and was wondering if anybody know this is a trustworthy site to order goods or not..
i appreciate your time to answer me

Since one of the highlights of the X1 is its panel interface, it only logical to make the most of it. Some have commented that the panels are too gimmicky to be useful; while there is certainly an element of novelty involved, the panels have the potential to be powerful because of their ability to make so much information accessible so quickly.
