sony ericsson needs to do a software update and fast. the x1 is cool. . . but for us real phone guys we need the option to switch from symbian to windows. or maybe have them work together. i've bought every bluetooth watch sony ericsson makes and now i just bought this phone for almost $1000 and it doesn't know how to use the bluetooth watch. sending mine back. i like to use my bluetooth watches.
to any one wants real answer for question and device tour visit (http://pocketnow.com/index.php?a=portal_detail&t=reviews&id=1107) you can read from the size of device to its performance and everything, i myself track everything about this device and waited for 7 months for this phone to come and i ordered it £440 yesterday.

SEX1 is BETTER!
The Xperia x1 is a brilliant phone! I have had many Symbian and WinMo smart phones in the past such as the N70, N82, palm treo, HTC Kaiser , and the T-Mobile Dash. On this purchase I was planning on buying a HTC Touch Pro, but decided to buy and try Sony\'s new Xperia. Looking back at my purchase, I definitely don\'t regret it. The Xperia is bringing life into the world of dull phones and setting the new standard for Windows Mobile.
hi can any one tell me if it has auto screen rotation?i mean with out sliding the keyboard??tanx in advance
Yes my signal is very very poor, i changed from orange to vodafone. With my Orange sim card in I could get 'G' in all areas, but with my voda sim, i get no signa in MOST' places. Rediculous, whats the point in a having an awsome phone if you cant use it, I am taking it back tomorrow and getting one from carphone warehouse on orange.
reception is poor on the x1 my work ordered 150 units which all went back. SE said they will have a new revision Jan09 a rom upgrade will not fix this issue. They need to revise the antenna. I sent my phone back today as at work it could not hold a 3g signal were my HTC Diamond PRO does both on the same network.
The X1 is a good phone but 2 problems for me it is not a keeper the bad keyboard
and reception issues.
even freeware software like UItweaker can modify all that you seek & more.

It's not like Symbian where you install a theme or two.With WM you can change Splash screens, colour of text, bars, scroll column width, start up folder, camera, hardware keys etc etc in other words you can modify whatever you want.

Im quite worried about windows mobile tbh, I have never used it before.
Can you apply themes to WM? Like change text colour/background to the whole system?
Can you change the song when playing music in the background by pressing and holding the volume keys (forward or back u no)?

I'm having a really hard time getting a hold of this phone. Absolutely everywhere I go is either sold out, or in the process of selling their last one. Still, guess it shows that the phone is immensely popular. I've also been asking the stores I've visited how many of them have been returned, and hardly any of them have been. Guess there aren't all that many problems with it...
