It seems with launch of HTC pro Sony will have stiff competiton in the market. With successful launch of iphone 3G and pricing it at $199 and $299, Sony needs to price it accordingly. Seems Sony need to take hell lot of effort with price as well as quality and launch date. otherwise market will be someones else's.
personally im big fan of Xperia but will surely have a look at HTC and iphone also.
KIM, 09 Jun 2008REMINDER..........
Forgot to mention that I900 is lighter and has much more memory with Mic... moreAre you retarded? The Xperia is just as expandable with external memory as the Samsung is...
And the Xperia has a high resolution screen, so will look a lot nicer.
Anonymous, 10 Jun 2008No massstorage?Camera only 3.2mp?SE does the business well.You will understand,seeing the priz... moreSE phones traditionally have mass storage options. Thats a given. Anyone who has had a SE phone knows this.
This phone has all i could ever need: wifi, 3g, enormous screen & resolution, multimedia, a2dp bluetooth, 3meg cam, 256mb RAM, 528MHz processor, QWERTY keyboard, office suite, oh it takes calls too. With this, i can leave my pc at the office & still be able to work on business trips. it's almost a laptop, but it fits well in my suit pocket. Those who dont like this phone are probably kids. That's what nokia & apple is for...
looking at the stats seem the new Omnia is better at some but weaker at some but i prefer lightweight fone however i want both fones
No massstorage?Camera only 3.2mp?SE does the business well.You will understand,seeing the prize.only uniqe name nohing else.
People who are posting that the samsung i900 is better are forgetting one major fact.
Samsung i900 has a 3.2 inch screen with WQVGA resolution or 400x240
Xperia has a 3.0 inch screen with WVGA resolution or 800x480.
Whats the point of having a larger screen if everything will look pixelated and blurry on it?
The Xperia has 4x the screen res and its screen will be crisp.
Also abt the camera, samsung phone cams are horrible. Sony Ericssons 3.2 will easily beat samsungs 5.
Also xperia has 256 RAM while i900 only has 128.
I personally prefer having a qwerty keyboard.
I do like the onboard memory of the i900 though.
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2008i wonder how SE will respond to the new 3G iphone $199 price....iphone is only 199 if you sign your life away for a few years
You can use stylus,hardware keys or finger.Software used on other WinMo devices will be ported over.I'm sorry to disappoint you but wake up and smell the coffee XPERIA X1 ROCKS
I think it's nice, and "almost" perfect phone by design and feature, but is the screen using Full finger touchscreen like iPhone or LG Viewty or HTC Touch? if not, its kinda late to using stylus these days ha ha....
LOL xperxia will be the last to come out,check out samsung i900 dude..i dont think samsung will be loosing on this one..
You can't go wrong wwith a sony ericsson,it will kill both iphones and all the other phones.Apple,Nokia,Samsung i hope you know but the war has started and you are losing
i agree that most of users don't need qwerty, but some like me realy need it, it is like not having bluetoth.
And i think Xperia is like you say targeted at both, but still mainly for us.
ia hvae Nokia E90 now, realy nice hardware, justsymbian is bugging me sometimes, though there is also nice software for symbian, remote dsktop LAN veverything.
So gues why i nee qwerty? To type this post right now or example...
I don't use computer almost, since i bought E90. Forum posting, 24/7 connected to MSN with it, push email. I browse internet with it, and sometimes write word documents, one or 2 A4 pages sometimes...
which is why i need big screen and E90 has 4".
So don't tell me what qwerty is, it is what makey a smarthphone to have laptop functions.
But i do admit, not many people i like me :P So they maybe should maek another Xperia withoout qwerty but same.
Today, a cellphone is a very personal thing... Almost like a favorite sports team. Its no wonder so many people post so many crazy comments here bashing or praising this phone. There are nokia fans that vote all '1's just to lower the score. There are SE fans so desperate for this phone that they refresh this page hourly for new info. No matter who you are, if you do your homework and compare this phone to all others, you have to admit the spec sheet is nothing short of amazing. Its little wonder why this phone is getting so much attention. Just wait until they announce the price ;)
The phone would be perfect if it had 256K display and 5MP camera. But it's nice anyway :)
Thor, 09 Jun 2008Uf how i lafed when i looked at Samsung. i900 is competitor and probably better than HTC Diwmo... moreI think you never used a qwerty phone!
Some people need a keypad but for most users it is not needed.
There several phones and PDAs without qwerty keypad and people able to use it fine.
The extra 50% thickness not that great anyway.
It is clear to me that the target consiumers for both unit is the same (articles also confirm that). You may disagree.
