I've got this awesome phone today features is reallly really good. I would like to find out if there is anyone of you encountering difficulty on how to send and recieve bluetooth items to this phone, unable to recieved bluetooth business card from N73/W960 eventhough all devices are paired and visible to each other. Please advise. Thanks
I just come back from Sony Style (IMM, Singapore). The saleman says X1 is for Sony Member ONLY. he does not know when it will be available for others. he does not know the price also. :(((
One thing with ALL phones which use Li-ion batteries, it takes 4 or 5 cycles until they start performing anywhere near their peak, usually it takes a couple of weeks of normal use.
It is impossible to achieve that in 2 days unless you were on continuous calls for the 48 hours.
I've seen comments about "poor" battery life and people taking phones back (usually to change for a Nokia for some reason) across multiple phone models (usually not Nokia's for some reason) which to be honest seems like absolute bullsh*t.
SE has done a great job with their first WM device, here's to many more in future.
Now if only they could get Apple to let them use OSX ;)
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2008This is probably a stupid question but do you have to use the slide out qwerty keyboard to dia... moreOf course you don't have to use the keyboard.. Just dial from the touch screen.
you r right . i talk to SE. they have 2 version. one is international version 2G, other is US version with 3G. so i am waiting still.
Ive had it 3 days. Best phone ever had. Windows Mobile 6.1 vast improvement. If your a geek, you'll love it. If your not a geek the you love the keyboard. Most user friendly windows phone Ive ever used.
Get a screen protector and leather case though.
Adrian Osbourne, 07 Nov 2008i am sorry but the XPERIA is the phone of the year! The xperia is a fantastic phone! i brought... moregood to hear you like the phone and you have said some thing positive. can you tell me how good the video quality is like and what file types it can play? cheers
i am sorry but the XPERIA is the phone of the year! The xperia is a fantastic phone! i brought mine two weeks ago and is the best thing i have done, i previously had the Samsung Omnia but found the battery life was poor and bad feature bugs, the S-E-X phone has a very good battery, has downloadable panels and the panel features are GROUNDBREAKING! the key board is better that the G1 and HTC PRO! internet speed is very fast yes the screen is a bit small but with phones like Omnia and iphone is that you can't see the whole screen whilst your texting and you can with the Xperia so what the BIG deal i don't want a widescreen TV in my pocket! buy the Xperia you wont be disappointed.
The grip is quite alright, other than being heavy and bulky, it's really a great phone! The panels rock cause they make navigation much easier. Messaging part is cool, except that they don't have on-screen keypad typing (if you understand). Cost: $1298!

General 2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100
Announced 2008, February
Status Available. Released 2008, October
So please tell me were this is availible an i buy it right now!! As far as my information is going the USA NETWORK 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 is not even released.
Don't confuse here everybody, there a 2 version exist. Xperia X1i and Xperia X1a
This information is found on the Whitepapers and at this time only the Xperia X1i is released with the European Network Compatibility. This X1i is NOT compatible with the US Network, even (i guess because i have seen it on the Touch Pro European Version) the Keybord is different as the US.
If i am wrong, please correct me.
I an concerned with reports of taking fone back after 2 days,,Why?? Well firstly you cannot even get used to something that fast after giving it a good charge,,doing a video test ,,cam test,,response test,,texting test,,email ease of use,,document time of writing test,,signal test,,wifi test,,navigation test,,game play test,,email set up,,battery test,,customise normal,,customise wimo 6.1,,set up delivery reports,,input email details,,start to dowload apps,,test apps,,make some fone calls for earpiece test,,handfree test for clarity at each end testing,,web testing for quickness of downloading pages,,page rendering on the wvga screen of the web and video and flash operation,,button testing on keyboard and lower screen,,reflectiveness of screen in sunlight and so forth,,i think normal people know what i am saying..OK sometimes you do get a faulty handset i have had few in my life and every company even argos gives a replacment unit,, but to say one simple thing about no signal thats it its going back and not even trying a replacement sets bells rimging,,and even tho you say your not a nokia fanboy almost suggest you are..IF and when i get xperia i wont just take it back in 48hrs,,what kind of trial is that,,you try ot the stuff that you need and if its faulty get a replacment you dont just give up..
i was looking forward for this fone for months and months - i then got bored of waitign and got the htc touch diamond - which is a great fone i love it to bits, but my mate got the x1 yesterday he was looking forward to it for months and eventually it came and first looks he wasnt that impressed so i played around with it and it was slow hung the back doesnt stay on it keeps unclipping the signal is dropping off every 5 mins and he is on 02 and i stand he has another fone nxt to him with full signal he was really disappointed with the fone and it was def not worth the wait - VERY DISAPPOINTED SE
p.s im nt one of these nokia fan boys - i really wanted 2 get this fone origanlly but couldnt wait any longer and from my m8 says - im glad i didnt wait!
