Well said Ronald.WM is resourse intensive and with the WVGA screen I seriously doubt if the Xperia will rival smaller devices such as the N-series or indeed the I-phone especially in ease of use or speed,however it seems to me this unit is being pitched at and will attract existing PPC users.I doubt many N-series owners would cross the divide even if the Xperia operates at an acceptable level.
SE phones is not as heavy as nokia when it comes to non stop texting... i own a K501i but it hangs when i use it in non stop texting, asking where it is now, in the junk...... now i have a nokia phone and i use it more often but it never hangs... now people tell me what the great phone is?
I know what your saying about the dash. Is was a good phone, but the processing power was pretty low. I knew this going into but I didnt know it took more than that to run Windows Mobile 6 properly. When I upgraded to it my phone was slow and unresponsive. And yeah the iPhones 624 MHz processor certainly helps. Yeah and your also right about the X1. Its nice and I'm sure that Apples next phone will be a great device, but I'm not going to get all crazy for XPERIA until it comes out. And if it can do for better for me than what apples phone can do then I will consider purchasing one. But I'm sure Ericcson will come out with something stellar, I just want stellar multimedia features and I dont need to be able to create and edit MS documents or a 5MP camera, all I need is a great browsing experience and some great audio and video playback capabilities, coupled with a very strong battery and youve got a winner in my book.
Hard Disk capacity: Not supported
Display 65K colors
Dumb ass features, No xenon flash!
I think most of you don't like Win Mobile, because it's very pro & complicated & hard to use.
Win Mobile is not for kids.
Symbian is a dumb OS.
You can't compare Microsoft with Symb developers.
You can stick to Symbian 4ever.

Actually their is something in what that guy said Gsmarena gave the n80 a great review and I for one can safely say that phone was SLOW plus it had numerous bugs the damn thing rebooted after surfing a few content intensive webpages and why has the n82 fw upgrade made the front page?What's the big deal about geo tagging?WM pocket pc's have had that for years If you read in between the lines it's quite obvious who gsmarena favour GSMARENA EVEN HAVE A LINK TO SYMBIAN on their homepage How can they be neutral?
It took Nokia AGES to correct the N95. v10,v11,v12 firmware fell well short. ..luckily their customer base is made up of fools.
Just like the worldwide conspiracy that attempted to cheat the Christ out of the victory at Calvary; there has been an attempt to cheat Nokia of the victory it won with the N95. Who dares wins and Nokia dared to create a multimedia device that provided a reasonable standard in multiple pursuits: telephony, photography, camcording, texting, games etc. They deserve to be lauded for that. Furthermore not all units which had the initial firmware were faulty. Those that had issues were corrected with firmware upgrades which is not a bad thing. The SE X1 owes its multimedia adventure to the N95.
I hope this device works flawlessly on release otherwise websites like gsmarena will write reviews with dark undertones Why is it gsmarena and many other sites raved about the n95 with v10 firmware?The phone was as slow as a snail and had a million and one bugs granted the N95 with v20fw is good but back when the review was written it was an all together different story Nokia mafia must be Very powerful
SE use more powerful then Nokia do, so trust me this SEX1 will have a powerful Battery life!
even my W850i which is 2 years old has 4 days battery life
this phone wont be much SE always have powerful battery life!
The limiting factor on this phone will be the battery and the processor. To power a WVGA screen that uses WM6.1 you will need at least 2000mAh of power. Why is it that the great SE cannot sit down, meditate and invent low weight high powered batteries instead of attempting to stun everyone with high specs that are not reinforced by high powered batteries. The truth is that the top companies are way behind in battery research.
Concerning processors; I do not believe that the Qualcomm can do the job. WVGA is extremely awkward and needs a powerful processor. SE better look well before they leap!!
Since this has turned into Nokia Zone,let me tell you where I sit!
I got the N95 after reading all the hype, obviously from review sites that were funded by Nokia. I used to have a p910, & although that phone was more limited in its features, it did what it did well, & without fuss. I am a business user, I am 40, & tech savvy. I want a phone that works primarily as a phone but must be able to in some ways replace my laptop for short periods.
The problem with the N95 is that it completely fails to deliver in the User Experience. The most notable annoyance is the slowness with which the operating system makes things happen. It's not super slow but you always have the impression that you are waiting for the phone to catch up with you. This is not just the N95, but a problem with a great deal of modern technology.
The keyboard was far too fiddly, but then I could see this before buying it so that's my fault.
Navigation was slow, again thanks to the operating system. No timed profiles either a glaring omission for anyone who doesn't like being woken up in the middle of the night by texts or calls.
The camera was not bad, & produced decent snaps (I am a pro photographer) for a phone, probably one of the N95 redeeming features. However, don't shut & open the phone too often or the operating system will get stuck again.
The N95 also displays weird traits when it has been plugged in & out of my Nokia wired in car kit. Sometimes the microphone is disabled, so people I call can't hear me. This was very annoying, & means I have to reset the phone.
Personally I suspect that it's the Symbian OS, & its implementation on the N95 that makes this phone suck so badly. I am bitterly unhappy that I was saddled with that phone for 12 months.
I dearly hope Xperia can deliver more
I was told by SE most likely 3Q USA release, price TBA, no carrier affiliation as yet.
The Xperia X1 is for Professionals who require more than the N-Series can provide.
GPS on the N95 is USELESS.The GPS antenna is housed in the numeric keypad which means you really have to have the device open to use GPS.Garmin v TomTom is a no contest TomTom is in a different league.As we all know TT dosen't work with n95's built in GPS.
The man is crazy!He thinks the N95's screen is able to show detail,perhaps he didn't know the Xperia X1 screen can show FIVE times as much information as ANY N-Series handset.Most N-Series owners are youngsters or have little tech know how generally they are employed in the building trade or are window cleaners and the like.
