The X1 is a horizontal slider phone based on the upcoming Windows Mobile 6.1 Operating System. It is Sony Ericcson's first mobile phone to feature Windows Mobile.
The phone features a three-inch touchscreen overlaying a QWERTY keypad which emerges when the user slides the touchscreen face upward, much as in the HTC TyTN II, although the X1's touchscreen slides out at an arc. Its touchscreen is a 65,536-color TFT WVGA display. It has a 3.2 megapixel digital camera which records video at thirty frames per second. It features a variety of connectivity options: mini-USB; wireless LAN 802.11b/g; Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, FTP, and HID; EDGE; and quad-band GSM, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA, and HSCSD. The X1 has 400 megabytes of internal memory, which is expandable to 32 gigabytes using High Capacity microSD cards, although currently only cards up to 8 gigabytes have been released by SanDisk.
Due to the restricitons of Windows mobile, the phone will be the first business phone by Sonyericsson which is not capable to utilize the PCS network feature Alternate line service, which was once introduced by a collaboration of Orange(UK) and Ericsson.
Several software features will come standard on the X1, such as handwriting recognition software similar to Palm OS's Grafitti software (handwriting may be by an included stylus), an integrated aggregator for viewing RSS feeds, and push email.
The device is powered by Qualcomm's ARM 11 MSM7200A CPU, which runs at 528Mhz. It has 128MB of RAM.
To all people here especially the Nokia fanboys if you have nothing to say just leave this forum and your just messing up here and we can't read the important details of this phone XPERIA X1...
We are clearly can identify one thing that SE give more concentrate the end user's satisfaction.
Well, it's really a good challanger to the iphone and confirm it will beat that. Cause it has so many features that what we want, what we like, what we pleasure and what we need. I feel XPEREIA X1 must be a cool & user friendly gadget. Thanks SE.
guys I do hope you all know that no phone can have it all. There are the positive attributes and also the negatives. I believe this is a good move from Sony Ericsson and we should believe that there are better stuff to come in future especially with increasing technology and innovations. It's rather too early to start speaking down/bad on this new device
Brick, heavy 145g, only 65K colors, very slow Windows Mobile 6.1, no TV out, no xenon flash and a high price of $899USD...SE do you really think to beat any competitor with those specs and expensive price??? I don't think so! Big deception, i was waiting for a REAL ALL-IN-ONE from SE!
GSM Arena of late have stopped gazetting my posts but anyway let me keep trying!
It is clear that SE in a desperate bid to maintain market share have borrowed many Nokia concepts in this device eg 3.5mm output for headphones; green and red call and end keys; microSD card slot; VGA 30fps camcording etc. So those castigating Nokia should desist from that because it is evident that phone companies borrow from each other.
The Qualcomm processor which this device houses has not been pushed to great extremes. Its former dwelling the HTC TyTN II did not have a WVGA screen and the video drivers were not enabled. SE X1 on paper will test the Qualcomm MSM7200 processor. I hope it delivers because the contemporary PPC user craves for fast response times and smooth reliable operation. To pull it off, SE will need their best technicians working on this phone. Toshiba produced a similar phone: the G900 but had many problems with it.
I must say it is courageous of SE to pack WVGA res into a 3 inch screen! Yet it is a thin line between courage and folly. They better make certain that this SE X1 functions well otherwise HTC, SE and WM will have egg on their faces because thousands of irate businessmen will be pelting them with raw eggs!!
...i seriously trust the acceleration prob will b fixed,n m reli lookin 4ward to havin this along with ma N95,den m fully done...was finkin of gettin the ifon,ba hey d tyn z a dushbag,shud b gvn the dushbag fon of the year.lol.
this phone doesn't look very nice on pics. I have seen the video and I was surprised. It is nice. A little bit Slower that the nokia, though.
yeah,screen is ok just camera could be 5mega,wvga resolution is pretty standart somwhere and will be soon in europe,it's much much more better then ordinary one, if nokia starts with wvga 3''screen their battery will be 1kg weight
yeah but this is from N82's list.
- Push to talk
- Voice dial/memo
- Built-in handsfree
^^why write them down? all phones have those things..there not written down on other phone specifications.
why Handsfree written there? its pointless everyphone has it ! same with Voice dial/memo ..
and look at the X1's Specs list.
X1 has more features then that. and GSMarena hasnt written them down.....!
think about it
well yeah, maybe T9, etc are useless but almost every phone has it... -_-
16M Display doesnt make it a Good Phone
does it ? NO!
This X1 has soo much better things over N95
there more important then a 16M Display
anyway GSMarena hasnt even written half the features of X1 on its specifications list and if you look on Nokia N82 the list of Useless features 'T9, Notebook' etc..
