The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is a smartphone set to challenge the mighty yet frustrating Nokia E90. If looks are anything to go by, the XPERIA wins hands down, but as with any smartphone, it\'s not the looks that matter, it\'s the features and how easy they are to use.
Sony Ericsson are keeping tight lipped about the applications on offer with the XPERIA X1 for the moment
The first thing to note is that the XPERIA X1 is based on Windows Mobile 6.1, which marks a welcome departure for Sony Ericsson phones as they\'ve never used Windows Mobile before. This brings greater synchronization with the desktop. Sony Ericsson have also been shouting loudly about the new User Interface of the XPERIA X1, which they see as capable of taking on the iPhone. The X1\'s UI is controllable through a 3\" VGA touchscreen that can support the sensible 65,536 colours. The UI uses what Sony Ericsson call Panels, which are distinct blocks of functionality that the user can move around the screen at will.
According to Rikko Sakaguchi, Sony Ericsson\'s Head of Portfolio and Propositions, \"No two individuals have the same tastes and desires. Sony Ericsson\'s XPERIA™ X1 has been developed to ensure that mobile web communication and multimedia entertainment can be tailored, putting the individual at the heart of the mobile experience in a uniquely personal way.\"
Applications can be built around panel technology, and Sony Ericsson will be working with both operators and application developers to create nifty new panels once the XPERIA X1 has been launched.
Speaking of which, despite rumours that it wouldn\'t be released until 2009, Sony Ericsson have said that the XPERIA X1 release date will be the second half of 2008. Which is just as well, really, as apart from its flashy interface, the X1 is competing feature for feature with the Nokia E90,although we expect the XPERIA to excel in all departments unlike the E90.
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is looking good. It\'s got all the features you\'d want, and looks great, too. Can\'t wait to see it in the flesh!
By the time this phone hits the market,its going to be toooooo late!!
I feel mad because the dealers here lied to me about when its coming out(they said mid MAY)but now they're talking about the 4Q of this year!
To NOKIA losers
The only answer is to WAIT!!!
this is the real thing i've been waiting for all days, am coming for u baby.
thanks for the info. but Dude that's NOT true and lets just wait and see until this phone XPERIA X1 comes out and they are still upgrading this phone XPERIA X1 so just lets see the final result when it comes out...peace
@ London bridge, i mean London Beat
can you please give us the exact site of that!!! maybee that's not XPERIA X1
Thats real f### up that there is no digizoom for videorecording, but maybe who knows that will change.
I saw in the whitepaper (*t*p://developer.sonyericsson.com/site/global/docstools/phonespecs/p_phonespecs.jsp), page 27, that there isn´t digital zoom avaliable while video recording, For me that´s too bad! do you think that maybe SE made a mistake in the whitepaper or there really no zoom?
P.S. Stop fights like SE vs Nokia and provide really useful info!!!

can you give me the link of website that HTC announces xperia will be release on september ?
@Gleb Please don't confuse people in here unnecessarely ! This phone is made by HTC and it is not yet delivered to SE for branding. HTC announced the delivery date as late september early october 2008. Count yourself luck if you can buy it in November. I hope this helps.
i think this phone will be nice. lets hope it does be released in a month or so.
I know that here are some wholesalers who are already able to supply the phone directly from Finland. Which means that here are many many items already been produced, but for some stupid reason it is not in the shops yet. So check out Ebay.co.uk in 3-4 weeks. Maybe it will be there. I definitely will do :D
This is would be my typo phone which i was expecting for years!!
jusssss 2 questions.....when it will be available in stores and what would be the price ??
if this xperia is made by HTC so i dont know what it means...why HTC use SE name if they made x1 (HTC xperia x1 and why SE xperia x1) eventhough HTC company name is great..and why HTC upgrade RAM etc on SE phone name and not on their product (HTC diamond), i think it's right that x1 is created by SE and SE pay HTC for manufacturing x1 (ODM) so HTC doesn't have right to label their name on Xperia.look at xperia is have more features and higher devices quality than HTC diamond... like bigger RAM and ROM plus qwerty etc...
I was eager to buy this phone the day since it announced...But looking @ HTC Diamond, icant wait anymore till september and buying Diamond...Compared both phones, dint find much difference, except for card slot and Low battery in diamond...but Its Ok for me...So me going to buy Diamond...If I come to know Xperias date of launch, may be I will think of changing my mind..but as of now, Diamond is in my mind...
