15 tips for Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 users
u can buy this phone under au$1000 in australia. dont forget to give 100% vote
Got to muck around with it...
1) Right price Indian Rupees 29,000 to Rs 31,000/- overpriced by Rs 10,000/-
2) Key pad can be improved to be less dramatic tooo many sharp angles
3) SE has got too many loyal fans who are too willing to give this phone a high rating. I think it is worth a 7.9 8.3 and 8.3 rating is fair a 8.8, 8.8, 8.7 is too high.
i will get this phone, i work in phone store once we have it i will buy! i have the benefit of testing the handset first, so i guess i am lucky.. X1 will be mine hahahar..

Get the English version and do the fresh installation.
It could be very risky job, why I said that because it may swipe out all the pre-loaded programs specific for that phone customised to the region you bought the phone.
My X1 after one week...
I've installed TouchFlo3D on X1 (found on the net), worked nice but phone become unstable. The Garmin XT I had on it always freeze since then. Switching between panels also sometimes freeze.
Uninstall TouchFlo3D, took about 4 hours or more. Still freezing problem happen. Did hard reset, install again Garmin XT 5.02, TomTom 7, DivX player, Youtube, etc etc... no problem... no hang
I think TouchFlo (interface from HTC) cause serious memory problem on X1. There is one panel (spb) which can be downloaded, nice one and finger friendly.
Audio quality: as far as I know it has 1 speaker, and the music sound directly from the phone seems to be not rich, not as good as Nokia dual speaker such as N82, N95 etc... however, the sound quality can be very good if connected to external speaker. Could be due to small and mono speaker?
Camera: I think it is ok, but if X1 comes with CyberShot or Carl Zeiss lense could be better. Go for SLR camera if you really in to photography.
GPS: worked ok with TomTom7 and Garmin XT. Get satellite fix rather quick. The map looks very detail and sharp, the graphic much better than standalone ones. Thanks to the high pixels screen.

However, I have found a Language Extender German to English, I think you can try that and see if it works. You can download the trial and test it. If it works properly you may want to buy it. It's a legal product of course by Paragon, It says it works on HTC touch HD that has the same resolution than the x1 and it's also WM 6.1, so it should work. Let me know if you succeed . See u. here's the link. http://www.penreader.com/pocket-pc/english/Language_Extender_English.html

@naqx - thanks for your opinion. Since I prefer the black one, I will check both which one is best suit for me. I've seen the steel silver already and really looks beautiful though.
I got this on monday and what a disappointment. slow as ever even with a 8gb card. Not the best on the market in my opinion. Back to the blackberry me thinks.
There is a program for youtube client in x1. Its like the ones found on iphone, and is activated in the panel. Just search it over at xda developers site.
Which is better looking, the black or the silver? Some said that black is more sleek-looking but some said silver looks more sturdy and finger-print free. Your opinion please as I am going to buy my XPERIA X1 hopefully this week.
