It took you forever to launch this device, its features are not unique now, and its style is almost outdated.
This is what happens when you release details of a product very early, withought launching it quickly thereafter.
Having said that, I am a big fan, and my next phone will definitely be a SE. Just not the Xperia.
I soo hope this comes out this weekend its gettin frustrating being told its been put back again.
stop complaining people this phone is amazing only a week away from o2 stocking it(hopefully they wont change the release date AGAIN)but it wont be slow dont worry about it...n96 was released but it has been quite a flop...
Steven, 13 Oct 2008I really really want this phone and can't wait to get it.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I asked already to Sony Ericson Shop,

I really really want this phone and can't wait to get it.
Is no-one else concerned about how slow it looks in the videos?
Basicline is there'll be 384mb ram, if I would believe these rumors...

hi guys i have a news..yesterday i went to retail store, they said dont buy X1 which has 256MB RAM because that is Commercial prototype not retail version and SE gave that commercial version just to demo..then i saw the IMEI and ROM date iam suprised these was the same with yours it means your x1 is still prototype. they said final product will be sold in monday (13oct) and there is no final product before the date...
the final version will have 384MB RAM with new ROM version
From what I've heard its 384mb ram. Only 256mb visible and 128mb available for CPU/3D.
From Tracy and Matt's blog:
What's the in-call sound quality like?
In-call the X1 is ok. There's plenty of volume from the speaker meaning that I don't need to have it set to maximum. The speaker itself is also reasonably good.
What is the actual RAM in the device?
The X1 has 384 MB RAM but you'll note that the device information screen says 256MB. This is because the X1 also has an additional 128MB RAM that's only accessible to the CPU/3D chip.
Who cares. Which bluetooth headset for the X1? Which is the best bluetooth headset Sony do?

Once you pay them then buyer stand alone
Its a scam guyssssssss
Anyone know which bluetooth headset they'll be using with the X1? I have been using the DS970 for about 2 years and it's held together with cellotape, so new phone = new headset.
Thor, 12 Oct 2008actualy battery is amazing. nut thrue not because of standby time, that is no reality as i don... moreFor moderate use in the touch pro the battery will last for about 26 hours. That means two days of use, as I switch it off at night.
With 45 min youtube, 20 to 25 min phone calls, and sync e-mails three or four times a day ans listning to audio for about 1 hour, it lasts for 26 hours as stated.
I think if I use the push e-mail, it will last for one full day, 14 hours or little more.
the price without a contract.. unlocked is about $800-900 usd! ... thats a lot >.>..
the reason why its taking much longer than the "release" date was because thats when it got shipped...
SE recalled the phone -__-" that it should be back by the end of the month..
Thats what a local retailer told me.
Far too late.....
They should have made it available long ago.
Of course this phone is in the upper class, but who will buy it when you can have the Nokia 5800 two or three times cheaper ?
I bet SE will stop making phones next year, their losses are too big
Another good thing about Nokia being so popular that wherever you go, you will find a battery charger...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I think it's a concept phone. I think the release date is a long-running joke by Sony. Sony would never release such a phone with a 3mp camera, limited screen capability and slow processor.

I have Nokia E90 and 1500Mha is MINIMUM.
I suceeds to last for a whole day, even the days i use it a little more, though if i go to UMTS it doesn't even last a day. So imagine how i would feel on HTC diamond, which has 33% less batery or worse than my Nokia right now. Evem HTC Touth Pro is a little worse in that respect.
Being conected to Push email all day, to MSN all day+1 hour chat or more just eats a lot of battery. But i am happy as far as it hold whole day. Sometimes 2 days if i don't use it much.
For me X1 has only one small error. keyboard is worse than mine on E90...
