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! I have waited for this phone for such a long time now that I'm used to it (waiti... moreto janiq,,you may even get yout touch pro hd before i get xperia,,it launched over 3 weeks ago and i we are supposed to be saving planet and fuel but shipping the xperia by camel and horse is taking too long
Released not now! when God knows, it has lost all pomp & show but gained bad name pre released.

Anonymous, 22 Oct 2008Hey guys, Xperia has been released at GITEX in Dubai and its costs Dhs.3400!
I think it shoul... moreAre you sure that it was released in Dubai GITX, and it costs 3400 Dirhams can you guide me to the sales person.
I was in GITX yesterday and I have asked about X1 but they told me it will gonna be available next month November and it will cost 3500 Dirham about (953 USD).
I orderd the XPERIA X1 today in the Netherlands. The device will be in the KPN shop at the beginning of november.
The hardware is far more beautiful than the touch HD and the specs are good too!! I can hardly wait to use it!!
Xperia X1 has been released in sony ericsson official site and in phonearena.com and one of my friend bought it in sweden. but this site does not attention to this. thanks
SE has totally accomplished its goal - at the time of release the X1 is outdated!
Good job SE!
Excuse me Steve!!!I am the one dealing n SE STALL & people we tried our best to get the phone but we couldnt they said they will ship it nextweek&Xperia is not available in Dubai gitex.
Mr.Steve(dubai)i think you been fooled by someone if you really have the X1.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2008I think you have purchased a chinese copy of the xperia. Xperia has a metal body and not plast... moreI have seen all the vid in utube&that made me2 buy.its not just the panels.Once you will have the mobile you will come to know :)
I think i checked for my friend in gitex they said its sold out.There were 200 pieces&yhey told it will release on the market next week.
NO more waiting for X1......i gonna get something else...been too long....by the time this phone release...tons of better out there....you may have this phone for 2 months then better phone on market....hahhha...SE should release now or else you have to WAR with tons of others phone in the next 2 months.
Hey guys, Xperia has been released at GITEX in Dubai and its costs Dhs.3400!
I think it should be avaialable in the markets now!
Well done SE! I have waited for this phone for such a long time now that I'm used to it (waiting I mean). So now I shall rather wait for the rumoured HTC Touch HD pro to come out (it doesn't seem to take a year for HTC to get a rumoured phone into the market, but that actually seems to happen quite fast) rather than buy this handset that will be "old" spec-wise some two months after it'll finally be launched...
And a very special thank you to SE for these very latest delays in getting the phone into market. Without them I might not have heard anything about HTC's recent developments in time, and I would have made a big mistake buying X1.
Won't come as a big suprise if Sony shall put an end to the cooperation with Ericsson in a very near future.
HI guys you must know xperia x1 is not slow at all...x1 is slow just in panels transition but x1 apllication operation is very fast...
i know that the panel transition is slow because there are 9 panels are active = you run 9 applications at 1 time...but in overall, x1 is great device!!
