My dear friend,if you live in UAE please go to SE agents or dealers and here it by ur self.if you're from somewhere else then kindly go to the main site of SE click on the middle easte and take the phone # of the trustable sellers and give them a call.2 ways to make sure,you pick what ever you like.
What everybody doesnt get is that the X1 is READY,and will hit markets by JUNE,i'm sure of it.at the shop i was about to buy a SE phone and they asked me,do you want the X1?i myself didnt trust what they said untill they called main center replying its priced and we wont pay to bring it so early because of its price,also he mentioned they are talking to the main companiy about this issue hoping to get it lower.
then they told me they can order it for me but i'll pay more money,which i didnt like.however the guy told me by the mid of may they would have it but they will get few units at first to sell and the 2nd order they will make would be better (many)honestly he told me,i dont expect lots of people to buy it at such price.how much for it?he him self said i dont know but we will inform you incase you want to order 1.over all its more than 1200$ at these days or so he tried to emply.
we dont even know the launch date of this phone. I pity the SE loyalists shouting for this phone without even having seen it.
can u please stop posting ur nokia phones in SE categories.. go to nokia and post there for ur superstar symbian phones that hangs up every 5 minutes.I work in a mobile shop and no one will have nokia because they have symbian.SE will make a big deal with this phone and i think they will catch it.in order of nokia,i had these 3 phones and i sell them because:
N95 - low battery,charging every day
N73 - the camera cover cames off
E90 - slow slow interface
now I changed to SE and I can say they are much way better!!!
I love SE i think i wil be the first in UAE to get this phone.. i cant wait much....
3.2 mp camera without xenon flash at a premium price?
who will buy this?
this phone is only for se loyalists.
this phone deserves a much lower rating!
becoz it is not even available.
I work for SE and tested a prototype of this phone. This phone has a very slow user interface. This phone will not be released until Q3 2008.
sony x1,best yesterday,best today and best 4ever.no phoner rocks like SONY
This phone will be very old if it's release date is about christmas time. Probabaly nokia or another company will release something way better till then. :(
As posted by KIM below, I don't think this unit will be available in UAE in 2 weeks time. Not even this site has announced the availability of XPERIA which I think more credible to release such statement. For my own opinion, the earliest to become available is no later than Sep or Oct this year but not December.
SE phone technology + Windows OS = BRILLIANT!!!
Can't wait to get one of these.
h0w can some peepz get the handsets IN A C0UPLE OF WEEKS when this ph0nes' "release date" aint due til q4 '08???
is it friggin DECEMBER already??? L0L!
No Windows Mobile and HTC and co won't kill Nokia or Symbian.The average user prefers normal one handed operation and symbians easier to use OS and don't forget Nokia know by incorporating 5 or 6mp cams the less knowledgeable will be fooled.I do agree that Symbian has had it's time in the sun,maybe Nokia think this too especially as they recently bought into Trolltech(linux)Use Symbian in the normal cells , linux or WinMo in the pocket pc type devices
Based on all facts bellow,that was clearly a strong indication that SE,HTC and Microsoft windows mobile Had plan to kill Nokia and Symbian.As we know Nokia phone didn't have any high speed processor and their OS(Symbian) had a limited function(comparing to WM).
Why is it ALWAYS Dubai that gets these high end handsets 1st all the time?
Anyway thats great news, now bring on the final version reviews. . .

GOOD NEWS GUYS,the X1 is ready and will start selling in 2 weeks in DUBAI,as i was informed from our agent of SE in DUBAI.
He says they are still talking to the main company about its price and if they could get it lower,which means it is priced!STILL,those who want it in 4 days they can make an order through the agent of SE in DUBAI but surly pay MUCH MORE $$$$.
By the end of may it will be out there all around UAE i guess but i really do want to know its price.even the biggest shop and agents of SE still not finally informed.
do you know that 7 out of 10 persons mispells the brand "Sony Ericsson" ????
they spell it like....
i hope that w/ the popularity of XPERIA X1 this mistake will be totally wipe out.
to people complaining regarding the real "maker" of this phone:
knowing who really made the XPERIA X1 will not change the mind of the buyers who really wants it.this is the first SE phone with windows mobile so we must expect the very good quality we've experienced from SE.
to the person w/ th IP "pKdU"....
great insights man....
