Anonymous, 12 Jul 2008does this phone have multi tasking??Are you serious! This is windows mobile. Its the most powerful mobile OS. It can obviously do multitasking.
C'mon guys this is wm we are talking about.Windows Media player isn't the best but Conduits pocket player is BRILLIANT as is core player and about 20 more media apps.See that's the benefits of wm...plenty of quality 3rd party apps.

Here is a small glimpse at that media player
This is running a very old firmware. So, the panels are very slow. The new ROM update has been done after which the panels are very smooth. U can see that in bengalboy's review
Does this have a 3.5mm jack? for as far as anyone knows. Some SE do have it, and I thought this one had aswell but I'm not sure since its nog on the spec list.

Iam so hoping this is pretty good to start with but obviously it will have furure updates,,the battery life is also something to shout about..
The xperia has a walkman player in it so does it have windows player too?I hope this powerhouse does playback vga video fluently and record vga video in mpeg4 fluently..
Anonymous, 12 Jul 2008Windows mobile is hard to figure out, yeah I know it offers way more than symbian but remember... moreI am agreeing with this person that windows is alot harde to learn than symbian..Altho i am going to get this unit symbian for which i have used for the past 5 yrs is a lot more simple..I am ready for the challenge tho but could do with a bit of learning is their any basic sites with a good overvue of windows 6.1 pro or good free apps site...I am learning from pda essentials at moment which is a good mag for me but was always heavily written for windows ppc rather than symbian,,palm,blackberry,,linux etc..
What i am doing at moment is going thru the last 20 mags picking up tips and software but it is 100 % more difficult and a lot more grown up and mature than symbian.. I am in no way saying its bad its just a lot more of a learning code and from reading about 20 hrs of web pages from allover people praise it as the most advanced platform with apps in there 1000"s whereas i thought symbian was very flexible and cool..

Anonymous, 11 Jul 2008Nonsense!Yes TyTN II didn't have software drivers for d3d and with good reason-because devices... moreYes, xperia x1i uses full graphic acceleration. But x1a, diamond and pro have implemented somewhat partial video acceleration. Their chipset is also different and none of these 3 are capable of recording vga videos which x1i can do @30fps
Brandon, 12 Jul 2008Can anyone confirm if the 3G frequency stated here in the specs is correct? I read somewhere ... moreOriginally, 1700 band was available on xperia. But for some reasons, they have dropped this band. Check out the revised whitepapers of x1 for further details at developer.sonyericsson.com
Windows mobile is hard to figure out, yeah I know it offers way more than symbian but remember not everyone is a tech freak.Xperia x1 is a cell for nerds.I've got an e61i and its good n you don't need to be einstein to work it
Can anyone confirm if the 3G frequency stated here in the specs is correct? I read somewhere else that it will have the 1700/2100 needed for the new t-mobile 3g. Thanks
Great thing about WM is you can customize virtually everything.Install spb mobile shell + necessary files and you can have the same UI as the diamond.I've even seen WM7 UI on a tytn!
