Nokia 5800 is a direct competitor to the i-phone whereas The Xperia X1 is all together more professional device but don't forget the X1 also includes stunning multimedia capabilities. This Windows mobile v Symbian is getting rather boring but if you think Symbian software is superior i'm afaid that's a sure sign you have never used WM programs.
Hey GSMArena, you guys might wanna change the current status from "coming soon" to "released". User reviews have begun popping up on major forums since it's out in some of the biggest markets - the UK, USA, Germany and Sweden.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Just took a look at Nokia 5800 OMG there's no way I'm using that phone in front of my colleagues and clients, they'll sure laugh in my face if they saw me using such a childish flashy phone with emphasis only on music. You say that Nokia kills X1 in every way??? OMG wake up and face the reality, even from the design Nokia 5800 is a big no no for grownups. Maybe it's a good Christmas gift for the kids to play with, and of course they need to listen to music most of the time...
A Vodafone Area Manager ahs advised me that this handset is on its way to Aust' in the coming weeks....
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Then go buy your Nokia already if you need a phone only for music. I don't care about listening to music, watching video, playing games or taking 8 MP pictures using a phone, I already have iPod, laptop, home theater, and digital camera for those purposes, I don't need my phone to do those again. I need a phone that can help me do my work anywhere thus I need the push mail, WM with pocket office, WLAN, and the full qwerty keyboard, and X1 have all those. Does Nokia 5800 have all those? No. Thus that phone is a total worthless junk to me regardless how good it can play music. Look at the purposes of you buying a phone before calling it bad.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970SE has already sent X1 stock in UK, Germany and Swedia stores since 30 September and the stores has different date to sell x1 it is depend on their business strategy but each store has agreement with the others store to make a date to sell x1. If you want to pre order this phone you must see at first when the store will be sold the x1 and if the store only said October but there is no a date, you must ask first when it will be sold exactly before you pre order it.
If you pre order this phone at store which doesnt have a specific date so you have a risk you cant get your phone A.S.A.P but if you pre order it at store which have a specific date (example : 8 oct) so you must wait it till 8 oct and don’t complain the x1 date before 8 oct because you knew it and you are not a insane person, are you? but if the store doesnt sell the x1 pass 8 oct so you can complain to the store where you pre ordered it and not to SE.
My advise is find a store which has the closest date as your expectation…
Ken, 03 Oct 2008Well 1st Thing I Dont Think This Phone Will Be Release As It Announce Like 8 Month Alr Bt Stil... morenokia use symbian,
Symbian Ltd. It is a descendant of Psion's EPOC and runs exclusively on ARM processors.
On 24 June 1998, Symbian Ltd. was formed as a partnership between Ericsson, Nokia, Motorola and Psion. Symbian was previously owned by Nokia (56.3%), Ericsson (15.6%), Sony Ericsson (13.1%), Panasonic (10.5%) and Samsung (4.5%). Ten years to the day later, on 24 June 2008, Nokia announced that they intended to acquire all shares that they did not already own.
so Symbian is not Nokias OS
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well... I partly agree with you. But it is difficult not to talk about release date, because personally I'm waiting for this phone for 8 months already. And frankly speaking I feel obsessed with Xperia.
TaisO, 03 Oct 2008Does SE Xperia X1 recognizes hand-writing?yes it does
Wow, this phone has pretty high ratings for a product that has not yet been released, LOL.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Okay final question: what can you do with your complaints now??? Go burn SE's office already or kill the boss LOL
Is there really anything that you can do now, besides complaining???
I just don't understand why SE likes to show off their new phones and make their customers wait for a very long time.
Most of their high end phones take months or even more than a year before they get launched. And the first batch are buggy ones.
This is why I switched from SE to Nokia and Motorola.
All the waiting, then the product fails to deliver. Like my K850i, which was a total flop.
netboy, 03 Oct 2008y are u keep defending SE?? do u work for SE or soemthing? wont sell it early? maybe they ha... moreLOL you keep asking why we're defending SE as if we have to agree with your ideas. Why do we have to agree with you? Afterall it's SE's product and business, they can do whatever they want with it for whatever reason. If you disagree what can you do? Sue them? Burn their office? The only thing you can do is leave them alone and buy Nokia...and of course keep nagging about SE on this forum. Call me defending SE again, I don't give a damn...
SISTEEN GB? OR EGHT GB? mega pix? not even five mega pix< only the name brand that u pay for this kind of phone

Expensive at start,but now the best in its category! Screen size/sharpness,battery life, functions etc.Mp4 player,when watching a clip,u can go directly to a specific scene, just with a finger touch!
P990 - Xperia SE the best!
