WHYYYYY is it that the HTC Touch HD got a 9.0 in every category here on Gsmarena and the Xperia is stuck with an 8.8??? I dont even like the HTC!!! Whyyyyyy, is it that good??? i dont see the need for the HTC HD to have such a high rating!!! Well if its that good i hope the only good thing it does is that it helps to lower the price of the Xperia!!

Please read earlier posts as this question may have been answered before...!!!!!!!!!!
I know that this phone is one of the best out there in the WindowsMobil category. It has the best screen resolution out there yet. The only downside is the 3 megapixel camera, but It is still OK. Consider the VGA video this rocks! Finally Sony are doing good.
for gods sake!! when the hell are they gonna release the phone.. been waiting for ages.. the announced it in feb.. still no news.. what't goin on.. i need a new phone.. tired of my n95 8gb.. anybody sitting on release info?
Probably the best phone to be released in 2008.
To everyone who complains about the phone's price; when you consider the phone's specifications, the price really isn't much at all if you are the type of person who will actually give most, if not all of the features good use.
Messenger, mailing, 16GB music library, internet and a decent enough screen to avoid the frustration you would normally go through while writing documents on the street combined with what seems to be a great keyboard and battery life really does fulfill my needs.
Considering this phone is in the same price range as a cheap laptop, brings me to the conclusion that I would choose this phone over an average laptop any day, mainly because this fits into my pocket, and a laptop doesn't.
well, saw NOKIA TUBE in movie THE BLACK KNIGHT .. hmm .. nEways .. Xperia baby .. waiting fo u !!
I can make my WM device have similar a UI to a s60 Symbian-not that I want to but it is possible with software like spb mobile shell.
I agree. The webcast was a complete waste of time.
But what shocked me most about it, was how slow the X1 was. Screen rotation took ages when he slid open the keyboard.
the webcast was touted as the first "in depth demonstration of the X1"
they weren't telling us anything new!
and agreed, Who The F CARES ABOUT JOHNNY X?, why not giving us a peek of the pre-installed softwares, or the camera features, or even some hidden tricks instead of those crap about Johnny X?
OMG the webcast was lame.
Q&A time wasted w/ obvious questions, eg "Does it have handwriting recognition?" Seriously, there's been like a year to find out what WM6.1 Pro _includes by default_.
At least someone asked if it has a JRE (confirmed).
Otherwise nothing else we didn't know and plenty of "It's up to local market partners to /charge what they think/bundle content/start selling the device/" answers, which we've all heard before, I dunno, perhaps a MILLION times before.
PS: The first bit of the cast sucked more so. Who cares about Johnny X? The director guy even said it was Bourne inspired *cough* ripped off *cough*.
The world best phones ever release………….
hope the xperia is available in big amounts in uk not have to wait till next shipment

Does Xperia X1 stream media online? e.g. Youtube, NASA or any streaming site? What all media player does it supports?
