I have a K800i with 256K colors and i had a 7390 with 16M colors, i can say that there is no difference. Not even if you put the picture on the computer.
So Sonny Ericsson go on, do your best for us!!!!
To solve the screen color issue i think theyll make 2 seperate color options. Say when you tap the windows gallery( from the 9 options) the phone will display 65k. And when you select the anything else from the gallery it will be in 262k :)
I love Xperia x1 so much because :
1. it has better proccesor rather than Nokia 95, 96 and E90
2. better battery life
3. it has three ways to operation the phone (QWERTY,Touch screen and Joystic) so it gives you an experience to feel or enjoy them, i mean if you'r bored using qwert keypad so u can use touch screen or joystic and u needn't buy 2 phone to feel those ways.also it gives developers a free space or flexiblelity for making application by combination those ways, in other word you can enjoy things what nokia phone cant do.
4. you thing sysmbian can beat microsoft (billgate). are you kidding ? I love windows mobile because more flexible.
5. it has WVGA (800x480)so it can make video (VGA) and picture be more crisp, clean and sharp rather than 16M color screen and VGA VIDEO at qvga resolution.Theoritically 16M color is bigger then 256 or 56kb color but in fact u cant realize what is different between 16 M color and 56kb color on 3 inches screen at WVGA by your eyes.
you think Nokia VGA movies/playback/recorded at QVGA resolution as good as Xperia x1 at WVGA resolution screen. You'r stupid!!
You think 16M color at QVGA screen better than 56kb color at QWGA.
You can see better picture at wvga than qvga.Sony ericsson is smart and effective!!!!
Nokia has powerful hardware or software but u cant enjoy those devices effectively. they'r useless devices and wasting money.
Dis is 1 of da gorgeous handheld I've ever seen. Dying to get 1 once it's launched.
this phone is really amazing has good features... and what's the difference about 16m to 65k can we eat this if this phone has 16million color and the important is it has good features with good design and it has simple and easy to browse using this phone not like NOKIA...
Why would anyone want high speed CSD?Dial up is very old technology and even high speed dial up is very slow.Web browsing on a WVGA resolution device needs a fast internet connection.
Am I reading this wrong or did SE really decide not to give it a high speed CSD connection ! ! ! W.T.F. And how many hours will it work on a full charge with a 500+mhz processor and a 3in screen with so many pixel to lit up and control? It may beat my laptop, not by much thou. I ain't so sure if I should regard this as a true cell or not.
If people are stupid enough to believe their's a notable difference between 65k and 16million colors on a screen no bigger than 3inches then surely the Xperia X1 is not the sort of device for them.
It's hardly just some web publication.Read the article and if you are still unconvinced download the computer App so you can compare,now on a 3inch screen the differences would be negligible.As has been stated numerous times it's the screen resolution that's of vital importance but if your happy with the pathetic QVGA resolution seen on the N-Series so be it.
I see the difference from my own eyes, not from some web publication!
@4Bbn You need to do some research before posting such tripe.I suggest you have a read of this.
No SE didnt think before building this phone, windows mobile 6.1 only support 65K colors! What a big mistake, there's a huge difference between 65K to 256K and 256K to 16 millions...
With no xenon flash, no TV out and an expensive price of $899USD this phone will not be easy to sell!
why the hell every1 is complaining abt the display resolution, i think u ppl donno that windows mobile can't produce better than 65k colors, can any of u show 1 windows device which has more than 65k color, so ppl ova there 1st go & do ur survey & then blame SE
xperia x1 have a 528 MHz processor.
this type of processor take a lot of power,
that mean's his battery going down shortly.
only display's pixle&clarity not made a perfect phone.

How amusing!The screen is one of the MAJOR reasons why this device beats other WM pocket pc's.Most mobile phones have QVGA resolution whereas the Xperia has WVGA.The X1 display can show FIVE times more detail/clarity than a p1,p990,n95,n96 etc.
A good review about the screen will make or break this phone. Most likely break, hehehe :)
how many of you guys complaining about the 65K colour display really saw 65K color on a (3" WVGA 800*480) ????
X1 pixels per cm^2= 15976
N96 pixels per cm^2= 3265
if you know anything about LCDs and from the calculations above you cant say anything about the X1 display being inferior and out-dated
the Superiorness of that X1 display is proved technically!!
and to you guys that are shouting the 16M color displays in Nokia....: that was the only way for nokia to put up their displays against the SUPERIOR 262K color ones from SE.
-i am not a fanboy... but the SE's 262K displays are perfect in terms of vivid colors and proper contrast.
you will be suprised about how X1 LCD EATs other brand ones....
but that was all about the display... as i think that the X1 could have been better speced. but still a great phone.
and BTW... the release date is officially announced to be about the end of the Q3 2008
