WVGA screen is super none of this 320*240 crap that 99% mobiles have been restricted to for years.
I don't understand why foolish ppl just keep complaining and comparing without knowledge and information when whole world knows what sony ercisson is:-
sony's trademark are now synonyms with all like
Bravia, Walkman, Handycam, Playstation,Vaio,Cybershot and now Xperia is also the new brand added to their portfolio of which the latest product is X1.
Ericsson is world leader in Base station infrastructure, so Sony Ericsson knows what they are making and they understand customer's need.
it's ppl who have to understand their potential rather than keep comparing and complaining.
Could you say by looking how many megapixels a digicam has,8M,9M,10M output is all but indistinguishable but megabits sell,so do colours.The average punter knows no better.
LOL 16million colours on a 3 inch screen is no different from 65k on a 3inch screen.Symbian and windows mobile developers acknowledge this fact.16million sounds good and entices people into buying a device.It's all marketing my friend.It's high time consumers demanded higher resolution screens then maybe manufacturers would stop producing lcd's with the horrible QVGA resolution.p990,n81,n82,n95,n96 htc kaiser all have QVGA resolution screens and it's not good enough.
16 million colors does make a difference... A picture which is having a shade looks better with a higher color display...
But TO ALL, X1's 3" WVGA is so damn good that 65k colors doesn't make a huge for it... I doesn't looks bad or lacking in anything, the lack of no. colors on the display doesn't either... I know because I have used X1...
Seriously guys do your research!16 million colours does nothing but drain your battery and put extra load on the CPU.The resolution(pixel count)is the key to a fabulous display.If you can't determine gimmicks from real useful qualities then the Xperia X1 is not for you.
i think its a great buy for the looks, AND the features. it has all basic functions, plus 3g, gprs, qwerty touch pad, hardware qwerty keyboard, inbuilt GPS!, windows 6.1 prof - which is yet the latest by microsoft...it has everythg i wud need...it just depends on the cost, coz i fear it'l go out of my budget.
Simple question: Does X1 have 2nd camera to make 3G call? I can not see where the camera is. I only see 1 camera for taking picture.
it looks nice. but w 65k display. i hope they would go w apple software. at least w 16 million pixal is sure a win-win design.
With all the new add on applications on BLACKBERRY CURVE oR PEARL dont you guys think its a better buy than E90 or XPERIA....i mean with BB everything becomes on your tips....for business users and client handeling its much easier....even if your travelling ??
I see DivX Mobile Player 0.90 was Released for Windows Mobile.Still no update for symbian,palm etc lol
All the new high end devices are incorporating VGA or WVGA screens.SE Xperia X1,the new HTC,E-Ten and Toshiba models are all going for proper resolution displays.Thank goodness QVGA resolution screens are a thing of the past.
This is Sony Ericssons' challenger for today's QWERTY design PDA's (i.e. Imate, HTC etc.), with awesome features. Advantages for this are Sony Ericsson had a great camera resolution and accurate features as their trademarks. Disadvantage is this is their first PDA unit experience. Thanks Sony Ericsson.
