Hi i work for carphone warehouse in a contact centre and had an hours training on the device with the SE rep. It blew me away, its an iphone beater and although they only have several panels avialable to demo, the technology looks superb. The screen is plasma and looks amazing, its expensive and hence will be harder to sell but i'll be recommending it. The keypad feels solid and easy to use and has bevelled keys which make use easy. Sure the camera is a modest rating but its better than the much celebrated iphone's which has stood still for two handset releases and still manages to overcome such a stigma. Watch this space, it will likely need a few software patches but it looks to be an amazing handset to really launch sony ericsson's new product line.
I like to see xperia x2 without keyboard. I hate sliding mechanism and physical keyboard. With touchscreen you don't need keyboard.
I agree with ps for his comments
why SE used HTC to manufacture this phoen?
cant they do it themselves ?
But for me Sony Ericsson and Samsung are the best phones till date
Anonymous, 27 Oct 2008Am a big fan of SE!
But cumn days nokia is bringing sum gud mobiles&most of them touchscreen&... moreYou are not a SE fan. You are a Nokia fan. Sony and Ericsson not try to splitting now. They already designed phones for 2009 including 12MP cameras. The recommended best phones are Samsung, SE and LG. Don’t goes to Nokia. Even Nokia market share highly going down. Samsung market share is up now to 16%. Samsung, SE and LG sound and picture quality is really well.
The world best phones are……………………
holy COWWWWWWW. SE Plemix.com ripping off people for Preoder...hahhaha.... http://www.plemix.com/phone-sonyericsson-x1-phone
its says 3g 850/1900/2100 so will it work with rogers?
also is the Panel ui slow and laggy?

Luki, 28 Oct 2008in what resolution it records video,for example 320X240 or greater.
thank youwhy are people asking questions already answered? it's stated in the specifications page that it records VGA videos, that's 640x480.
supports up to 32GB microSDHC when it gets released. should be more than enough =)

truth always hurts l, 27 Oct 2008I want to say ONE MORE thing to those who are in love with the typical SE X1
-Do you know t... moreActually, panels aren't shortcuts, they aren't all accessible through the main windows panel, you can't reach the sony ericsson multimedia page, fish panel, etc through the main windows.
You can create panels that shortcut to a program on the main windows screen, like the Google panel. Panels can also be like shells, like the SPB mobile shell.
i have to chose between this 2 phones xperia x1 and omnia i900.
my brother is going to buy one of them and i dont know which one is better x1 or omnia i900.
tell me please the difference betwen in writing sms,photo quality.video quality,ram and rom.etc
what is advantage and disadvantage of each one????
Hey, this is my first time posting here. Can anyone tell me for sure if this phone has TV-out?
Thank you in advance :)

We blew up a photograph to 16 x 24 inches at a professional photo lab. One print had 13-megapixel resolution; one had 8; the third had 5. Same exact photo, down-rezzed twice, all three printed at the same poster size. I wanted to hang them all on a wall in Times Square and challenge passersby to see if they could tell the difference.
Even the technician at the photo lab told me that I was crazy, that there’d be a huge difference between 5 megapixels and 13.
I’m prepared to give away the punch line of this segment, because hey—the show doesn’t air till February, and you’ll have forgotten all about what you read here today, right?
Anyway, we ran the test for about 45 minutes. Dozens of people stopped to take the test; a little crowd gathered. About 95 percent of the volunteers gave up, announcing that there was no possible way to tell the difference, even when mashing their faces right up against the prints. A handful of them attempted guesses—but were wrong. Only one person correctly ranked the prints in megapixel order, although (a) she was a photography professor, and (b) I believe she just got lucky.
I’m telling you, there was NO DIFFERENCE.
And I’m hoping this little test can save you some bucks the next time you’re shopping for a camera.

The marketing race for "more megapixels" would like us to believe that "more is better". Unfortunately, it's not that simple. The number of pixels is only one of many factors affecting image quality and more pixels is not always better.
Unfortunately there is no single standard objective quality number to compare image quality across different types of sensors and cameras. For instance, a 3 megapixel Foveon type sensor uses 9 million photodetectors in 3 million pixel locations. The resulting quality is higher than a 3 megapixel but lower than a 9 megapixel conventional image and it also depends on the ISO level you compare it at. Likewise, a 6 megapixel Fujifilm Super CCD image is based on measurements in 3 million pixel locations. The quality is higher than a 3 megapixel image but lower than a 6 megapixel image. A 6 megapixel digital compact image will be of lower quality than a 6 megapixel digital SLR image with larger pixels. To determine an "equivalent" resolution is tricky at best.
End of the day, the most important thing is that you are happy with the quality level that comes out of your camera for the purpose that you need it for (e.g. website, viewing on computer, printing, enlargements, publishing, etc.). I strongly recommend that you look beyond megapixels when purchasing a digital camera.
3.2MP Cybershot K800 can produce better pictures than 5MP/8P.
Really shocked. I just checked carphonewarehouse.co.uk to check if X1 out yet and went to the usual page. When I looked at the page the phone id no longer free and the free minutes are less! Feel let down.
It looks like an awesome phone, better than the HTC diamond and touch pro.
I know the camera is a little low (well now we got them 8 MP camera phones)
but it doesnt matter, its a PDA first, thena phone, then a camera.

This is a forum about phones and what they are like so why are you being extremely annoying going on about the same thing constantly, just shut up and move on.
Your next phone will be Samsung E900 i have already told you that but 1st you need to accept you dont have a Samsung I900 and never will do as that very hard to get pay as you go for under £50
See you later
