Silvio, 06 Oct 2008Read this review www.pocket-lint.co.uk /reviews/review.phtml/3475/4499/sony-ericsson-xperia-x1... moreWM has landscape mode since wm2003 second edition. You can do a short-cut or assign to any button to rotate the phone. You don't need to open the keyboard all the time.
I don't mind X1 doesn't has Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate, other features out performed other phones.
Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate make you lazy to press a button. LOL...
I am still waiting for X1... but I am getting 1 year older to use it...too bad...
I have a strong feeling that SE will cancel this phone, but, will release another phone similar to this one, but with improvements and a modified design. This phone is already outdated, and it has not even been released yet.
The rating for this phone is 8.8, hahahahaha. We only know this phone because it's posted here on this website for almost a year now, but not available to the public yet. How can it get that high of a rating? LOL. The more funny thing is, SE fans has been comparing this phone for many months now to other phones that are actually out in the market for a while now, saying that this is a better phone, lol. Yeah sure, hahaha.
the problem is SE lies!
they said 9/30/2008!
now retailer is saying X1 on sale by end of this week. i hope it' true!
i dont want another lie from them!
Announced: 2008, February
Status: Coming soon
WTF is going on with SE, more than 9 months to wait!
The price of the X1 will be around 850USD or 640EUR. That's to expensive to become a great phone. For the same price i would choose the HTC HD will a lot more to offer...SE should lower the price of this phone at max 550USD!!!
Moe, 06 Oct 2008then i guess ur not buying any phone any time soon huh?I will buy the HTC touch pro or in a month the HD, beside it look like your the one that will still be wating for the X1.

Sure, HTC is the ODM, but it doesn't mean that they did everything for this phone and SE just branded it. If HTC should be given so much credit, how come their phones look ugly compared to this? They can't design a phone that looks this good, cause they didn't design it. HTC may have good hardware, but their phone designers suck.
netboy, 06 Oct 2008what is wrong with using portrait mode for tomtom? i have no problems with that.
most video ... more
All tomtom GPS's are widescreen and that's the way I like it.
Why should I have to go in to settings to change it (if I can) to view video in landscape when I am paying around £500 - £700 sim free for it.
Let me put it this way, would you spend £20k on a car and be happy to wind up/down the windows manually?
Apart from the outside design of this phone and maybe the batt capacity it has nothing going for it compared to the competition. Don't get me wrong I really really like this phone but not enough to buy one.

most video player has a option for you to switch to landscape.
can someone explain me how does gsmarena make the ranking of the phones? innov8 is now number one while the x1 has more hits, more votes and still better scores in the three categories!

The phone dose NOT come with a accelerometer, so you cant view anything on this phone in landscape in less you open the keyboard!
for example if I put tomtom on it I have to open the keyboard to have is landscape and if thats the case how are you meant to keep the phone in a car mount with the keyboard open?
if I want to view videos in widescreen can this be done with out the keyboard opened?
not having a Accelerometer is the main reason for my to go with the HTC Touch Pro over the X1 as it adds a whole new interaction with your phone like the marble game and things like turning the phone down on its face to silent a call, or shaking the phone to change profiles. etc etc .
i emailed 2 retailers, they both said X1 is expected to be on sale by end of this week! hope it' true!

And as for ascelometer it is built in for sure, so i don't see the point, that auto rotate would not be anabled...
