The hold up appears to be in the panel software, which is why reviewers aren't commenting on it due to it's pre release functionality. The wait is nothing like what was seen w/ the iMate ultimate series so don't jump ship yet.
Contrary to what some think, including Apple, not everyone (ie the majority) wants an exclusively touch interface for a phone. Apple could have brought out any form factor as the iPhone and it still would have sold bucket loads but that's not a reason to throw a good product aimed at a different market (likely) costing millions in R&D and alliancing w/ HTC, down the drain. X2 will simply coexist as a part of the X series catering to those who want a touch-only model, not supplant the X1.
I think much like the P series, this phone will be a hit amongst business users in particular. I just hope it supports 16GB microSD! :D
scoobs, 15 Aug 2008Vodafone are releasing it 3rd Oct. Can't wait !!!Oct 3? Is that Vodafone in Australia?
Wow, thats not much time, I had better start warming up!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Check paketelor.com, n seek XPeria X1. They sell it for Rp 7,5jt. The store is in Surabaya. But I don't know much about it
SIN, 13 Aug 2008HTC TOUCH PRO is in stores ... that means XPERIA release date is closeVodafone are releasing it 3rd Oct. Can't wait !!!

But i read some where that the chip used inside of the X1i is different from Touch pro.is that right?(the one in X1i can record movies in higher resolution.but except for USA version)
wait>>wait>>wait BUT! till WHEN?
gtr32, 15 Aug 2008Seriously i think the sleek black HTC pro is much better looking then the 80's looking dimond ... moreI love how the X1 looks. It looks a lot more classy and sophisticated than the TouchPro, but then again the TouchPro spec wise is beta. The WVGA screen at 3inchs is going to look AMAZING! Lets hope SE do this one right.
What @ Samsung i900 OMNIA. Its out too....
Nochance for X1 now in Market.
Seriously i think the sleek black HTC pro is much better looking then the 80's looking dimond panel of the X1. what you guys think?
SE may not launch this product, they are thinking of jumpin to the X2...and i think thats an intelligent decision, this phone had loads of hype but it did not ever come out...
The hype's luke warm now...and with the competition around already better then this...there's no point in launchin this phone...
not to mention SE's record losses...this phone will not be their messaiah after all
I agree SE should announce a release date but in saying that Nokia are just as bad.The n96 is taking ages,with no real reason why!Xperia has touchscreen,windows os,hsupa etc ie features that have the potential to cause problems...the n96 has practically nothing new except mobile tv that can't even be used in most countries.Pathetic
by the way, check out the review on www.bengalboy.com , the x1 does have touchflo!
wow, still "coming soon" status, LOL. I've already switched to the n95 to the htc diamond, and now to the iphone 3g and this phone is still coming soon? LOL.
Looks like a great phone. Hopefully it won't cost too many rubles. But I'm sure it will.
i agree..the wait for this phone is too much. i'm on this site like 3 times a week hpin to see "available." this phone better be out b4 christmas or me and sonyericsson gone hve problems
