Does anyone know if and when this phone will be out in the U.S. market, and which carrier will have it?
I just got this phone about a week ago, i will give u my honost opinion, i have tried a lotta phones. The xperia is very sylish looking and has MANY windows mobile options and details to customize your phone. you can type in many ways, the transcriber works really good so does the wifi. One complain i have about it for paying a lotta money is i find that i has sometimes slow response time. not all the time but sometimes.it lives up to expectations if your gonna use all the options and have a data plan for it or else don't waste your money.

SE should recall or cancel the X1. I guess we know now why the X1 had been delayed over and over again.
Omnia is getting great reviews and much more reliable than X1.
It costs about 40% less.

So your problems, screen not tourned off-can be fixed by program, as can most of your problems.

general impression, the reception is worse than the HTC diamond and N95 i had.
Engadget noticed the problem in their review. There is also a post on the xda x1 forum about it(not by me, lol)¨
I recently changed my phone having been a Nokia fan for ever the N96 was.... well shockingly bad and had to be returned. Next was the Blackberry curve which was faulty on delivery,The X1 was suggested to me by Vodafone and it is the first time i've changed from Nokia. The X1 although a little heavy is just brillant, it is a super wee bit of kit,BUT the faults
Bluetooth switches off if not used which is a problem in the car,Sony accept the problem but are not sure if they can fix it,the X1 is problematic in low signal areas and will not even send txt's.
Back on the car issue, the screen shuts down too and can only be wakened by pressing the on button or pulling out the keyboard,bit of an issue when driving, as is no key pad when they ask you to press button 1 or 2. sony said today to me if they can't fix the issues they may well classify the phone as not suitable for car use !!! can't see that myself.
Don't know what to change to the blackberry storm or the samsung omnia ?

an independent pro-reviewer´s word:
˝The most disappointing about X1 is its speed. The handset is slow, it’s very slow. We have to wait a couple of seconds for the programs to launch, screen switches aren’t fast either,.....˝

Naji, 19 Nov 2008Hi All , 65K colors for the large LCD? that for a $$$? why they didn't make it 16m? I see... moreThe reason SE are not implementing a 16m colour screen is that the human eye is incapable of distinguishing between that many different shades, and it uses up battery a lot faster. Why reduce your battery life for something which, on paper, seems better but in actual fact doesn't make a difference to what you see...?
After reading too many opinions it seems that the X1 is more positive than negative.
Would anyone there know if it has speed dials?
nick, 19 Nov 2008im on a 35/month and normally hit about 55/month, but £100 a month is insane! i once did £120 ... moreVodafone do a similar thing, where they have nursery level - had it less than a month, then core value, then high value then ultra high value. I'm in the highest band, and they're still not playing. Which is why I'm jumping ship.
Oh, and I only reached the £100 mark a couple of times...
Revenant, 19 Nov 2008My W960 is through Vodafone. Typically I spend about £70 a month, but it can be as high as £1... moreim on a 35/month and normally hit about 55/month, but £100 a month is insane! i once did £120 o month when i was on 3
but yeah, anyway, i was talking to some bloke in orange the other day and i was trying to get hold of the htc touch HD (cos its exclusive to orange right) and they operate on a basis where if you go over every month, you are put into a higher loyalty band kinda thing, so they are more likely to give you the handset for free.
he showed me the different bands and the higher band you are, the cheaper the handset is on a 35/month. they normally want £129 for the handset plus 35/m contract, but i only have to pay £49! whey!

There is an old dictum ; the dog barks ,the caravan goes by.
Seriously, you must be ill somewhere inside.
can anyone tell me whichone looks better :
the silver one or the black one?
this is the toughest decision i had to make , and i cant make it.
˝To be blunt, the Xperia X1 isn't quite up to snuff with the top smartphones in the market from an overall standpoint. Whether you're talking about its $800 price tag, stylus-based resistive touchscreen or 3.2 MP camera, this is a phone that would have fared better amongst early adopters a year or two ago.˝˝
I have seen 4 review including the one a fanatic pushed here. Others are all disappointed with the X1.
