I'm gonna paste this phone on my forehead to pick-up girls! It is that nice! I'm buying one. Time to get rid of my old P900.
the no. of colours doesnt make much of a differnce for ur infoespecially wid SE.The only thing dat matters is resolution which is tooooooooooooo good for a phone(highest ever )
i love sonyericsson very much and thise one is the ultimed one an body now how much will coust? and thenx to all ho work on this site pace >
im a big SE fan. you guys should check this out.this is my observations regarding SE fones.
1.great camera quality
(even nokia is adapting the Carl Zeiss optics that originated from Sony cameras)
2.great user interface
3.great mp3 player
4.nice and elegant designs
6.simple and attractive
7.doesnt look cheap(if you notice some fone manufacturers tends to use plastic or fiber instead of steel as hardware.if SE uses plastic they tend to retain the "anti-cheap" look)
8.price is right(my point of view)
9.great battery life(this is what nokia and samsung should work about.a lot of busy peoples hates charging their fones instead of doing their stuffs)
10.great flash and autofocus
(again nokia adapted the xenon flash and the idea of autofocus from SE)
11.reliable and stable OS
12.fm transmitters (great idea i suppose,and fones with am frequencies?not a bad idea.i also appreciated the idea of nokia making a camera-free business fone)
SE has been creating great high-end and competitive fones eversince but still lacks....
1.TV reciever(believe me some people really needs it,anytime,anywhere)
2.TV-out(my comment,same with TV reciever)
3.some still missing 3.5mm audio output jack
4.geo tagging (for the sake of satisfaction of high-tech junkies. but i really appreciate the GPS effort they're putting now)
5.a larger screen(i know a larger screen decreases the battery life but i have faith that SE can work on it)
nonetheless i have observed that SE fonescreens is much much more crystal clear compare to other fone manufacturers fonesreens.
6.some still missing wi-fi
@Shahrukh - This SE model runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional not Symbian S60 or Symbian UIQ. Windows Mobile supports up to 65K only but be reminded that it has 800x480 pixel that matters most. You can't see the difference at all between 65K or 256K in a 3" screen. Being a user of both Symbian OS and Windows Mobile, I would still prefer Windows Mobile which is more reliable and faster. I would recommend you to buy a Windows Mobile phone, but more expensive than Symbian phones, so you could experience how Windows Mobile phone is far better.
If only the display was atleast 256K....at 65K...the display is poor at best!!!
With high end Symbian S60 (read Nokia)phones winning the race against Symbian UIQ (read SE), they (SE) had no option but to go ahead full steam with Windows, because as someone in the discussion rightly said that you need a big brand (read BIG R&D budget)to fully utilize the true potential of Windows.
Moreover with Windows Mobile 7 and 8 in the pipeline I think SE's decision to design their flagship phone (XPERIA X1) around the Windows Mobile OS is not a bad idea at all.
We also need to remember that Symbian S60 phones have lacked one major functionality compared to Symbian UIQ and Windows Mobile (Pocket PC version) and that is the touch screen functionality (the big thing for users in this post-iPhone era!), but with the news that Symbian S60 (maybe the ver 9.5)would start supporting touch screen in the near future SE would have lost that edge as well.
XPERIA X1 maybe definately leave a lot of things to be desired because the current version of Windows Mobile (6, I don't know about 6.1) is not all that great when it come to multimedia (camera quality, music etc), but what ever I have read about version 7 and 8 my feeling is that these version will definately try to match Symbian in the multimedia department if not out do it.
I am waiting eagerly for the XPERIA X1, .... I hope the wait is worth it !!!
The Xperia X1 won't be a speed machine.All handsets with high resolution screens eg 640 x 480pixels and above suffer slowdown.
People see a few vista icons and think WM6 is the same.How foolish!
Can U pls open UP yr eyes. There are wifi, camara and QWERTY keypad. WTF.
cause nowadays even a six year old kid knows how to use a symbian os phones
i think that's very true. only hardcore WM user can give comment on X1.
it need those 520mz it using crappy windows...
windows mobile 6 = VISTA...
and vista sucks
..just look at the 65k colors limitation
u should compare this phone with E90. and i can tell u e90 is sucks...they said it communicator for business but it used crappy symbian instead of WM. and also xperia have a better processor than e90 (528MHZ Vs 330 MHZ).
and for sure, this phone clearly have better design than stupid brick e90.
You CANNOT have a 16M colour screen because it is a WINDOWS MOBILE limitation... it can only support up to 65k colours.
For people who posted comments regarding the screen being "crappy", please get out of the discussion, you obviously have no idea how WM works. And you must also be underage to buy these kind of devices, unless you are pretty much spoiled by your parents.
only 65k colour?! 400mb and 128mb card?! wao! so stinky sony ericson deisgner. what a nice phone then spoiled like that.
This phone has brought so many issues to the fore. One of them is branding. I am certain that if HTC had put their name on the product there would not be even half the interest! Look at Toshiba; they have a similar product: the G910/920 and yet although it was announced a month earlier than Xperia it only has ONE page of reader's opinions! It has failed to catch the public's enthusiasm partly because the brand does not carry the same weight as SE.
I feel that many of you are expecting too much from Xperia. The Qualcomm processor has not been tested to such high spec requirements and may not deliver the delights you desire. However purely on perusing the specs, it looks promising. Let us hope that SE and HTC(that is in fact three companies) can put heads together and make this device function reliably, because if not there are going to be alot of red faces!! Let me leave you with this caveat: if you need a portable computer buy a laptop!
