What makes this phone so great?
The build quality? The camera? The features?
What? I really need to know because this looks like a HTC Touch Pro to me.
I am more excited about the C905 than I am about this phone that is taking so long to come out in WinMo 6.1's twilight years.
So someone please enlighten me on why this is better than say the Omnia or Innov8.
SE could do much better for the X1. I think d spec of d X1 is not as par as Samsung Omnia. After all, it's in same class range, right? Don't get me wrong, I like Ericsson, even b4 they changed d name to Sony Ericsson. With two advance companies, they could much much better than this. The X1 have to keep up w/ other current handsets that's already available today from Apple iPhone and Samsung Omnia. Like the builtin memory, cam pixels, 3G, Wi-Fi (curently is already three of them b, g & n), VoIP, etc.
I hope the still pending status by SE X1, is to keep up w/ the current technologies. I'm currently using an E90, N95, Atom Life and I'm already bored w/ those phones. iPhone for me is nothing to rave around, iPhone Bluetooth can only be paired w/ a handfree device? What a big joke & waste. iPhone doesn't have a recording feature. Yeah, I may think I will not use it everyday. But, for the the price those gadgets are selling in the market for the consumers today. I would like all those latest available features, it comes in quite handy when you least expect it. X1 and iPhone doesn't grab my full attention just yet.
men sonyericsson is a very nice product

Updating firmware on a Windows Mobile phone is extremely easy. It is a matter of plugging it into the pc, running the installer on the pc, click next a couple of times and wait for the installation to finish.
The installation process is very safe as well. If you update your phone and the power fails halfway through, the phone will still boot on the old firmware and operate normally. Only when the installation completes will the new firmware be active. So the chance of bricking your device is very small, watch out for hacked firmware though.
The installation file is usually available from the phone brand. But there are alot of hacked firmwares out there as well which will look and operate differently, some of them is faster and more stable than the official releases.
I am sure that after windows mobile 7 is released you will be able to download it from SE's website and install it yourself. So there would be no reason for SE to wait for Feb next year to release because of windows mobile 7.
kat, 03 Sep 2008does this have a stylus?ya offcourse, it does have a stylus...

Can any1 knows whats the policy of uprgading from an older version of WM(6.1) to a newer one... morepls scroll lover, i won't repeat myself...
Or in short, it is free if it comes out, and that depends on Sony how much support they want this phone. HTC usualy offers upgrade to devices that are not older than 1 year, Well fro SE we don't know how he works, because this is the first Windows Mobile phone...
if you read this press releases from SE about X1 so you can watch TV on X1.Does it mean that x1 has TV tuner?
updating WM6 to 7 is not hard to do i have upgrade from WM5 to 6. All you have to do is dl the version you want backup your data install the new version and everything on your ph will be reset to default. The only catch is does your device have enough cpu power to handle the greater version and do you have enough ram. bye.
bishiee, 02 Sep 2008hey i visited my t-mobile retailer and they always have every single sony ericsson like ever a... moreWell that guy was probably lying to you as tmobile store. They have not carried every Ericsson phone. While you can typically buy unlocked phones from non carrier retailers that would be compatible with tmobile I haven't seen an Ericsson exclusive to them in years. Most Ericsson phones if exclusive to any US carrier are exclusive to AT&T.
Can any1 knows whats the policy of uprgading from an older version of WM(6.1) to a newer one (WM7)
i mean, can i upgrade this phone to WM7 when WM7 is released?
extra money? or free? or if its even possible to do such thing.
This phone is the bomb. Touch screen and stylus, touch focus etc. I'll wait for this.
Sony Ericsson spokeswoman Merran Wrigley has confirmed, as we have stated ourselves, that the launch of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 has not in fact been delayed to January 2009
“There is absolutely no delay. The product is on track. We have said it will roll out in Q4 and we are on target to do that.” said Merran.
The evidence for a delay were flimsy at best, being simply an un-updated website that was rapidly corrected, and the musings of largely uninformed SE reps at the IFA conference. With the device already widely circulated and even with the ROM in the wild, there is no reason to believe the device will not be here in October, as is widely expected.
It's strange how so many websites try to claim Xperia x1 is buggy,getting delayed etc but then again if you delve deeper you notice they get their info from dubious sources or are closely connected with rival manufactures.Xperia X1 is on target in every sense.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2008How can something, that has no official exact release date be "delayed" or "not delayed"? ... moreCalm down, neither Qualcomm chipset nor WM is controlled by SE. If this hardware and software is buggy then SE is dumb.
How can something, that has no official exact release date be "delayed" or "not delayed"?
Anyway Merran Wrigley, who is spokeswoman of Sony Ericsson said:
"There is absolutely no delay. The product is on track. We have said it will roll out in Q4 and we are on target to do that."
Obviously some guy on a stand at IFA trade-show in Berlin is not a competent source regarding official release date of a flagship phone of big corporation. Some sites were reporting that Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is delayed and will be launched in the year 2009, i.e. at around the time when Windows Mobile 7 will be unveiled (February 2009) but obviously we will see yet whether there is delay or not. If Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will go on sale this year, even if it will be the end of December 2008, there there is no delay.
Obviously the rumors about Sony leaving Sony Ericsson joint venture are other thing and it will not happen this year so it will not affect this phone.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will probably be the most advanced Windows Mobile phone and its ability to focus camera by pointing objects on the display will be unique. Sony Ericsson choosing Windows Mobile was big shock for the industry (and we were there on location when it was announced) but now it is time to deliver as end users can't wait any longer...
