Saw it at my O2 conference. Absolutely loved it. Feels expensive and robust in your hand. You can navigate via touchscreen, stylus, thumb buttons or the optical roller. The different screen layouts you can have are fantastic.
I like the pointless but fun little touches like the fish that swim around the screen. When your battery is getting low one turns grey and when you receive a text another fish arrives. You can also fed them etc. Like I say pointless but fun.
The keyboard feels really solid and looks swish. I really couldnt fault this phone. Has everything I need. Im not an iPhone fan. Whatsoever. So if you the same take a look at this.
Thank god I can get one early through work

about Xperia abilities/capabilities, please dont post useless/stupid comments ! This is a serious phone/forum/site for serious/realistic people !!!
And better be AWARE of the existence/released of Xperia-EIGHT months earlier
than 4/2 months before official released!
So can we say that this phone is late? or the owners/producers of Xperia not wanted to keep a long secret about Xperia project !

abortion_Shakur, 17 Oct 2008i lyke that fone and i have been waiting 4 it but still not shown up so i get the new nokia e9... morehi,dont u think that you've just wasted ur money at e90?xperia was a more nice phone than that...just a comment of mine =)
why being an idot waiting for this stupid crap....go buy Nokia N96 , Samsung Ominia, HTC Pro. OH hey goog new for who has T-mobile.... upgrate your Plan to get the HTC GOOGLE G1.....i bet your will love it ...click on HTC Brand here look for G1 or go to tmobile.com.....X1 will not be out until 5th of Jan-2009.i did contact SE. i waited for it before too.
i lyke that fone and i have been waiting 4 it but still not shown up so i get the new nokia e90.sorry XPERIA X1..
Just seen the x1 yesterday as one of the sony distributor bought it. It is BLOODY BRILLIANT.
The silver stylish looks, silver sliding keyboard and the video quality everything was AWESUM. The handset is too handy.It really looks SEXY, love it. He also told that it will be released out in a couple of weeks.I am eagerly waiting to buy it now...
Sorry X1, can't wait anymore and bought Samsung Omnia.
But it turned out a disappintment as follow:
- same ear piece and loud speaker so the sound quality is terrible.
- frozen and didn't wake up most of the time.
- terrible sunlight readibility. can't use GPS in bright daylight even in the car. what's the point of GPS then?
- touch screen is not very sensitive as HTC devices and at some points, touch is not possible expecially, near ok button. I tested touch testing, only one point near ok button. That's why so hard to press it.
- full of Samsung stuffs in rom and can't remove them and hard to update software like flash lite, google map, opera.
- terrible dialer interface
- bluetooth stereo is not as good as HTC devices..
- Stylus can't be carried all the time and difficult to deal with small things sometimes.
- hard to take pictures in bright sunlight. it's all funny color.
Oh, My god, I have made the wrong choice... Should have waited for X1.
