I've used it for 5 days and if I write the things that I didn't like about the phone it will take you an hour to read.
Summary, I love sony Ericsson phones I waited so long for this phone with high expectations. Unfortunatly, all I got was something that I wouldn't pay $100 dollars for. If this is the type of smart phones that Sony Ericsson are planning to launch more of in the future I suggest they go back to schools and start all over.
i was at a phone store last night, i had the iphone 3G in one hand and a 1000 dollars in the other (thats how much it costs in Lebanon)... i was sick and tired of waiting... but i decided to wait another week...
hope it'l be out globally soon
The Xperia X1 is a bulk of crap which was developed and produced by HTC on behalf of SonyEricsson.
It features Standard HTC-connectors and is not compatible to genuine Sonyericsson accessories.
It lacks high end hardware features like a Cybershot cam.
The UI looks nice due to the Sonyericsson “Panel” software, but, as soon you got to know it, you’ll get annoyed, because its slow like hell, and WindowsMobile can not be handled without a pen (unlike UIQ).
This phone is truely crap and should not be sold as a Sonyericsson device, but as a HTC.
AAPT and Vodafone will be releasing this phone in mid 2025!
Hold on folks, not long to go now!
I think it will come out in November just same as the Bond movie release Quantum of Solace. SE promoted its products in last bond movie too.
I went to GITEX today. I drove to Dubai just to hold the sacred baby X1 :) its a great phone (a little bit bulky, but does not bother me).
The only thing is that after I asked the guys over there about the release-date/time they told me that it might be released by the end of 2008 OR beg. of 2009 (cost: 3400 AED).
Janiq, 22 Oct 2008Well done SE!
