LEE-C , 07 Nov 2008it R11 000.00Saw Cellucity has a special on the X1, pay R650 for 24 long months and get phone free, plus an extra R200 admin fee(new contract), if you upgrade then you have to pay in about R5k plus admin fee (ridiculous. called them today and they told me to add another 35% to the prices advertised - suspect prices gone up before the Xmas holidays
I find this phone not all its cracked up to be. mine is going back on monday as it has poor signal on vodafone. also there's only one speaker on the left at the bottom and you only need to cover this a little ie in your pocket and that enough not to hear it. the speaker quality is poor and there's no base and loads of treble. its locked up three times in two weeks and for spending £35 a month for 18 months is not good enough. the alarm doesn't work if you turn your phone of so you have to leave it on all night. for me they have thought more about the design and look instead of looking after the first reason why you buy a phone. TOO CALL. i will look at the blackberry storm or the htc touch HD.
Anyone with a Xperia x1 should install xperiatweak.
kenosis, 07 Nov 2008I just come back from Sony Style (IMM, Singapore). The saleman says X1 is for Sony Member ONLY... moresaw a handset in carphone warehouse yesterday. boxed and ready to sell. think he said it was about £400
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!

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.
