May I congratulate Nokia's N95 for being the first phone on GSM Arena to achieve 500 pages of users' opinions. It was announced in September 2006 and has kept the public's fascination. SE's X1 looks promising but ONLY if they can release the phone in the near future ie within three months; otherwise people will lose enthusiasm and buy other phones.
Any company that is contemplating building their own Xperia should take into account: branding; design and multifeatures. Look Eten and Toshiba have high res models in the offing but they have failed to excite the public. I tell you if Nokia, Samsung, Motorola or SonyEricsson build an Xperia there will be a wealth of enthusiasm. The slide-out design with the tilting screen is another winner. Multifeatures such as touchscreen, a flexible OS such as WM, high res screen, VGA 30fps camcording attract like a magnet. The question: is there a company competent enough to amalgamate all there features into a reliable phone??
SE's official website is talking about delays till next year?? Really there should be a rule that a company cannot announce a phone unless they are willing to release it within 90 days of announcing it. This will prevent the hazard of concept phones being paraded as production models and massive delays between announcing and releasing a phone. The delay was posted on SE's official website so it should be taken seriously. The mantle of leadership now falls on i-mate's Ultimate 9502. The question is can they release it in the near future? One fact that SE X1 proves is that there is a hungry market for an all-in-one QWERTY based WM high res phone. Other companies should take note and build their own Xperias. It is a compelling challenge.
Can someone give an official link of when the X1 will come out?? Because i don't believe this date is true, can't be: 10/02/2009
MmUm i hope this rumor is true! http://gizmodo.com/363045/rumor-smashed-xperia-x1-still-coming-in-2008
Yet another ugly tile for the generation of gadget freaks loosing life at 3 inch display.
Good accessory for prisoners and handicapped though.
Good news for geeks like me.
It is indeed comming in 2008, like i guesed just before, confirmed now. See ya in 5 months!
If i look for example at Nokie E90, which was also luched on Februar it came to store in June /July, and i expect the same with this one. Comming soon status is ALWAYS announced half a year or less before relase.
for people who refer to that site which shows the release date of the x1 being a year later. It wouldn't be surprising that SE will end up launching it a year later (though it'll become a piece of junk unless price is low on launch date) like the p990i. I too suffered the problems with that issue, waited for so long, phone was disappointing and, 50% price drop within a year. but back to the point here, it will be extramly stupid for se do clain launch date being q3 of this year and change that thought shortly after. personally i think q3 is already too slow. if this all falls into play, Se may have fallen waaaaay behind.
They shouldn't anonce it who will wait 1 year are they crazy? This sucks
i think it's the best PDA from Sony Ericsson
and this one beter more any nokia one
This phone has to be available before June 2008, come on, i don't believe those rumors! SE will not announced a cellphone and sell them a year after, no way! Like someone said: this phone will be history by that time!!!

Global Mobile Awards 2008:

Microsoft : Windows Mobile 6
Microsoft is connecting people to the information that matters most to them, anywhere, anytime. Windows Mobile 6 makes it easier for businesses to go mobile with increased integration with existing Microsoft technology, new mobile security features and added functionality to help employees collaborate while on the go.
Windows Mobile 6 advances rich mobile experiences for people outside of work through integration with Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Messenger, Live Search and Windows Live Spaces.

Judges' comments: “A leading platform for business owing to the ease of integration with Microsoft Exchange infrastructure. For the SMB market in particular, Windows Mobile 6 is an attractive proposition.“
So, you think yet Symbian is much better?
Win Mobile VS Symbian is like Blu-ray VS HD DVD.
