Also, mine does auto-rotate. A comment below suggests that it doesn't but mine has always done so.
I find that sometimes it's a bit slow, the menus get a little stuck and i have to be a bit patient with it. Not sure I'm convinced, although it's certainly an impressive little gadget and looks much better than i expected.
i love this phone!!! but i dont think that arrived to uruguay... i love everything in this phone

Anonymous, 17 Nov 2008actually, he's right. the phone was announced more than a year ago. ..i found a review on you... moreAh, cool. But remember, I was referring to the official announcement, rather than a leak...
Only 1 set-backs for me on this phone:
- No auto rotate( i.e doesn't rotate when you tilt the phone)
Revenant, 17 Nov 2008Okay, you quite clearly have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
How do you fig... moreactually, he's right. the phone was announced more than a year ago.

Anonymous, 17 Nov 2008Rumors?
Not really! X1 is just at least a year late and deliver too little (while it is too... moreOkay, you quite clearly have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.
How do you figure the phone was at least a year late? It's not even been a year since the phone was announced, never mind the projected release date. It was announced in Feb '08, and the projected release, if I remember correctly, was 3rd quarter '08, so at the most the phone was a couple of weeks late.
And then you complain about thickness? For a phone with a slide out keypad it's ridiculously slim. As someone else pointed out, it's slimmer than half the phones with NO slide out keypad. Okay, maybe not HALF, but still...
As for buggy software - damn, man, are you serious? The phone's not even been out a month. A few bugs are to be expected with a brand new product. From what I've been able to gather it's been more stable than a lot of S60 phones recently. Remember how hideously bugged out the original N95 was? And by all accounts the N96 is worse. To expect it to run perfectly so soon after release is simply unreasonable.
I for one can't wait to get my Xperia. I'm expecting a few minor frustrations with it, til the first major firmware update is released. Also, it'll be my first WinMo device so I'm fully expecting to run into s a few snags with that as well, but I can be patient. And if I have any major problems I know I can get help here - seems like there are a few seasoned WinMo users that'll be happy to help...
