Nick ur basing your argument on just ur theories im basing it on pure fact. If u want to make yourself believe that ur not buying a se phone but an htc go right ahead. Fact remains that you actually are buying a se phone with no htc influence.
Na Symbian UIQ is a lame duck.Software development is extremely slow and it simply dosen't offer the functionality or flexibility to compare with WinMo.
it is quad band GSM+EDGE and quad band UMTS with HSDPA+HSUPA that includes 1700 MHz band.
Im not a SE fan but i cant close my eyes to this fact named xperia. I was loking for a phone whit all feutures in a set but i didnt find. now a 3" widescreen(800*480) is perfect one. full QWERTY keybourd with optical joystick. 3.2 MG camera. cool inteface on hot WM pro 6.1. 528 MHz processor and 400 MB intenal memory 512 Mb storage and 256 Mb ram is really uncomparable withe others and many more ... im just waiting to release...
On Sony Getting Into the Windows Mobile Game
A couple of details that I learned from talking to various people at the Sony Ericsson booth that might be of interest:
They took care to emphasize that HTC didn't have a large hand in developing the hardware. “We designed it, HTC is just the ODM” was a phrase I heard twice. SE is (rightfully) very proud of this hardware and though they're utilizing HTC to do the manufacturing, they really want to make sure that they get the credit.
As for using HTC to manufacture it, my personal opinion is still mixed. HTC is very good at making great hardware and clearly has much more experience at this sort of thing than Sony Ericsson. Likely that's why SE made the decision to go with them. It's still surprising to me, however, as SE makes all sorts of phones and consumer devices and thus they likely had a lot of options. If nothing else, I see it as a testament to HTC's incredibly ability to crank out Windows Mobile devices as a manufacturer that they could beat out the other ODMs that Sony uses for their other products.
The other interesting bit is that SE developed the X1 as a “North American Device.” Most of the design and development work was done in San Diego and has a “North American mindset.” If there was any doubt that Sony Ericsson is aiming this device primarily at the US market, that doubt can now be laid to rest. SE has traditionally done much better in the Asian and European markets with their high-end phones, the Xperia X1 is clearly intended to reverse that trend.
clearly HTC did completely make this.
i believe this because sony erricsons two phone laws consist of:
a)put as little features in a phone as phyiscally possible while charging standard prices
b)make life as difficult for the user as possible.
they normally do this by giving you some useless camera and useless video recording ability and some useless wifi receiver.
they normally make you plug in adapters to use headphones and they normally give you tony little keys you can barely press.
this phone doesnt have that!
so clearly sony erricson didnt make this
I am anxiously waiting for this Xperia x1 phone, but now getting frustrated and I can no longer wait. Can anyone of you suggest which other phone would have similar features and also available, as the Hp 910c was my other choice and that one is also delayed. How many gigs of micro sd xperia can support.
How on Earth you people believe, SorryEricsson will release this device in September if HTC clearly stated - they only will supply SE with XPERIA's in October ? You are soooooo confused :-) HTC RULES !
This goes to nick.
Get your facts straight. HTC are only BUILDING this phone. SE designed it from a to z. SE got htc's help because of their known capability of building windows mobile devices. Other companies do this like Imate and O2. Do your research before commenting like this. I know you're going for the warm and fuzzy feeling people get when they buy a SE phone. If u hate them so much then go buy some other device built by htc with the same features. Admit it its the sony ericsson touch that made you decide to get this phone.
Just to make it clear one more time in case you didnt get it, htc built it, sony ericsson designed it and added all the extra features, microsoft made the os.
can someone clear the air for me. some say this has a 1700 3g netowrk. some say they dont. which is it?
am so happy that you guys are giving us more life that these guys of the so called Nokia are doing to their Customers as a computer repair man in the country of Uganda but let me tell you getting softwares from the net is as easy as stteing up my phone with internet thanks guys and countinue the trend
