Honestly, this phone would have been the best if...
1.Symbian OS, UIQ instead of Windows Mobile 6.1
2. Lower price
Hope this happens soon...
why, it's just with 400 MB internal memory ? I like SE but there are ather phones with more a lot more internal momory than 400 MB, is't it?
Saw and fiddled around with a test model, very nice and impressive device. Pity it was not for sale.
this is the phone of the century me and my wife really enjoy we take many potos,her womanly assets look really good in poto but not good in real lyf why is this.the pone has brought my life back into tact/

When i put in earlier post about carfone doing xperia 45 quid a month i did not see free so it may incur a charge i dont know now??
The early adopters are usually first no matter what bugs or price so it will be those who will give a good first account of the xperia..
Released price may be equal to or more expensive than some laptops ,but a laptop doesn't fit in your pocket ,
The X1 does !
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sasa, probably you will be able to find it in Serbia in the first week of February, check the Sony Ericsson Brand Store in Belgrade or visit the local SE web page during January for more info.

UK shippment arrived but sent back to Sony Ericsson. There will be a firmware update, and should be released final week in October in UK. Check Expansys website for news.
this is actually the only good phone sony ericsson have ever made. all their other cybershot and walkman stuff are total gimmicks which are always one step behind everyone else.
but finally, this is good.
(yeah but then again it was made by HTC)
so we cant give them all the credit
mr sensiblr, 18 Oct 2008which store did you go to? i work for o2 we aint launching until the 27th! what you on about?
... moreIt was in o2 store in Cwmbran yesterday along with the C905. Both priced at £99.99 on a £35 a month tariff, which seemed a bit stange as surely the Xperia should be the dearer handset ??
Why are o2 charging so much for their handsets recently ? The C905 is available from a number of independent retailers as a free handset starting from £30 a month and even with cash back deals on £35 a month.
Think I'll either be switching networks or taking out a new o2 contract. o2 charging £99.99 for the original N95. I boght that handset for £89.99 when it was released nearly 20 months ago.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It is available, they had them in my local o2 store yesterday. £99.99 on £35 a month tariff.
whats the maximum memory available for x1
and what about the camera is it 3.2 or as mentioned before 5MP
does any body has any idea about the memory and the camera wheather its gonna be the same or any modifications( 3.2 m pixel and 400M memory and whats gonna be the maximum memory for it???
@RaXa,,Also this week have been with a mate at local papershop who has innov8 and altho i have said in past megapixels do not count etc the innov8 is sharper than my n82 which i found astounding,,what sammy have done i dont know but the pis are crystal clear..I have also bought last tuesday a htc touch from the same mate,,his x phone,,and been getting used to a ppc since used symbian for 5yrs..IT is very different in operation to my treo 500v i got and hugely more satisfactory in operation than treo smartfone windows..It is orange htc with double ram..
So i have a good chance of innov8 or experia but with innv8 having dodgy battery due to internal aerial weakness and xperia a souped up htc touch its still xperia i just hope i get a good deal,,18 months is long time to be in contract i liked it when it was 12 months and same price per month???
brynn, 19 Oct 2008in carfone today and they have dummy model in,,its so tiny each of the qwerty keys is about 4x... more@RaXa,, I am not dissappointed with fone its just the keys are almost blackberry pimple like they are biddy and my thumb could cover a whole panel..I think its just the way it looks big on the websites and in real life its small altho thats a good thing and makes it pocketable..
As for price thats awful at £810 its nearly iphone money,,i think the hardware is nothing new its just touch screen windows with cybershot..WHAT i mean is the cams been done already & designed so is walkman software, normal battery of s/e so its just not justifying the huge price..
I will get it on upgrade with voda hopefully but these fones are getting ridiculous in price ..ITS past laptop money and most of its been done before i have said earlier,,
xperia already showed up in o2 magazine, n it stated already out. The magazine is october issue. So , im sure it will be out this month!!
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2008Slow OS, wont pay 850USD for a slow cell phone!How do you know the OS is slow? Do you have 1 or are u going by the specs?
u seems disappointed but from what? contracts or fone or both? post something in details buddy. Ty
in carfone today and they have dummy model in,,its so tiny each of the qwerty keys is about 4x3 mm and panes can be no more than 5 times the keys..I do think ,as has been said many many times before that it looks better is flesh.It was in silver plus the opened keypad was silver and the keys were silver with black writing on which in direct sunlight may cause problems...ITs £549 sim free which has dropped £50 since last time and £45 on o2 or orange on 18 months,,bloody hell
