Anonymous, 27 Oct 2008This phone was great, when it was announced nearly a year ago. Too bad SE just had to drag its... moreYes, I agree!
This phone was for the 2008 market not for 2009.
It is too late now! It will be TOTALLY outdated in 4-6 months.
SE will outprice it from the market 900-1000USD is just unrealistic even in a good economy.
Realistic price considering the competition is around 500-550 USD.
Os selection is another mistake by SE!
This phone is amazing. The only downside is the OS. This phone has a very slow interface, according to several reviews. I wonder why SE won't use their own version of Symbian on this phone? Windows Mobile isn't that great...
This phone was great, when it was announced nearly a year ago. Too bad SE just had to drag its release date till every other devices in the market catches up. With a 17cm thickness, so-so camera and specs, SE will need to price this device lower than their expectations for it to be competitive, dont u all think so?
Man who told its not available in dubai.Look in virgin megastore but its expensive over der.DH3899
Li-Po 1500 mAh battery should be okay for this device.
Only concern could be that it is Li-Po which is nice but previously there was some manufacturing /reliability problems with these (another model).
Hopefully, this time it will be good.
I certainly suggest not to get the first units for several reasons:
- reliability (bugs, battery etc.)
- price will drop fast
If you can leave with the 17mm thickness and the unit is reliable the X1 may be a good choice for you.
(and willing to pay extra ;)
Does anyone know about battery life of this monster?.....i know high-end devices like this use to much energy and have to be recharged SE are good with batteries so i hope it last a good amount of time without recgharging.And also the keyboard is it stable? Cause i don't want it to break after 2 months of useage.I know it's not on the market yet but maybe someone has any info about this.

And tell him/her that instead of gossip tech data, SE should publish basic tech data on their website and PR release.
By the way, Congratulation to SE!
SE almost broke even? or NOT!
˝While its performance was nothing to brag about, it appears that Sony Ericsson has slowed the bleeding a bit when it comes to its earnings. As part of the company's Q3 financial results that it released today, we learned that Sony Ericsson put in a performance that would have been a hair above break even if not for some restructuring charges that are on the books for this quarter. While the loss is slightly less than had been expected, at EUR33 million, it is still larger than the loss in the previous quarter.˝
ive spoken to a sony ericsson rep and the x1 will take up to a 32GB micro SD card.the handset is surprisingly small,its probably half the overall size of the k850i for example.
Sony Ericsson Hands on (Remember to turn closed captions ON!)
No Accelerometer was the only downer for me to be honest.

My X1 turned up today. Not impressed, the build quality is lovely, the panels are nothing to rave about and windows mobile is rubbish.
