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!
x1 seems to be too perfect for a pda fone...but its kinda lacking with two things, could hv a higher resolution camera n at least 16mil screen...
I would love if SE/HTC implemented the Nvidia APX 2500 to future Xperia series phones. This would make that UI truly, truly awesome!!
NVIDIA APX 2500 + XPERIA = INSTANT WINNER! Seriously, SE or HTC must implement NVIDIA's UI to their phones. Truly is the next level if they do. http://www.infosyncworld.com/news/n/9030.html
Looks like a good phone, cant wait until they finalize the OS version. Only thing i have to be concerned is the Screen resolution...65k Colours/?? WTF!
When a person looks for a mobile phone, they always look at the brand, the brand's reputation in terms of the quality and price of their products and their reliability. Every company is always trying to make the "better phone" due to competition.
This is why every company makes a broad range of products with certain features. For example, camera phones, music phones, business phones etc. Now people want a phone with more functionality and features.
A person decides what phone suites them in terms of their needs and preferences.
Today, there is a trend between mobile phones and computers. Mobile phones are becoming more functionaly and more like a UMPC, whil laptops are becoming smaller and more efficient. Eventually, there will be a time when mobile phones and laptops will be combined into one device as people are demanding more and more of these devices.
I find the Xperia X1 a well-balanced device, that will suite all a person's needs. This phone also hsa an amazing stainless steal design, with a built in 3.5 MM headphone jack, a VGA resolution screen, a touchscreen, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and excellent functionality with an altered version of Windows Mobile 6.1 by SE. This phone wouldn't be worth much if ot wasn't for its amazing 1500 Mah lithium-ion battery.
This phone is truly well-balanced in terms of functionality and design!
i dont't understand why everyone is upset that the phone is running on windows mobile? is it not as good as symbian or what?
i had all nokia phones in last ten years,but now its gonna be se. i regret nokia take out call function from n810 and se just done that with x-x1 and fast processor and wm6.1 what canu ask more.nokia should regret, they lost me bec se got touchscreens in all phones making life easier and interesting... tahts all(i never like se but now its my only choice before htc)...for premium users only !!! best choice
Everyone, you need to read the main page news.
The XPERIA is running on the Qualcomm MSM7200 chipset, at 528Mhz. This is a dual core CPU with multiple engines to boost multimedia performance.
This means hardware 3D acceleration, hardware video encoding/decoding acceleration, and improved image processing. As a multimedia device, this platform definitely has the ability to excell without breaking a sweat. Also, as a dual-core design, the 528Mhz ARM11 CPU is supported by multiple DSP's (digital signal processors) which handle all of the communication/modem processes, leaving the CPU free to focus purely on applications & games.
Windows Mobile has been around for ages, and whilst being a very flexible platform I really don't think it's been able to show off it's full potential, as it's never really had a company large enough to make a substantial consumer base to make it as popular as I'd like to see it. However, now that SE is making several multimedia promises for this O/S it just might get the backing it needs. Simply put, with Sony Ericsson spearheading a new software movement, we will be sure to see some amazing advances in terms of WM6 games, multimedia applications, and business oriented software.
For me, the XPERIA is everything I've ever wanted in a phone. I'm very excited and will be patiently waiting until it is released.
65k = bad resolution and color, that's why they have longer battery life compared to 16m colors which is digital-alike images. Windows OS not a good choice.. SE really has gone down.. I bet this fon is way to far compared to samsumg G810 and nokia N82... bwahahaha
very nice phone o hope it will cost a lot so not many people will have it i wish SE had a exclusive phone line like stupid nokia with the nice VERTU::))when will the X1 be on the market????????
i am a big nokia fan that i have never owned a phone other than nokia but now that's gonna change. This babe is just fantastic. Even better than htc due to DVD quality video so we're sure the drivers problem in htc phones won't be repeated again. eagerly waitin for the x1 to come out, DON'T BE LATE SE
65k or 256k or 16m color screen does it matter? and a 65k is still good and its not like you can tell the difference between the screen colors, plus 65k screen uses less energy so u get better battery life, i rather have a 65k color screen and watch a full movie than have a 16m color screen and have the battery run out half way through. plus the WVGA screen makes up for it so it works out
Guys stop comparing N96 or similar with the XPERIA X1.It's like comparing rotten apples with juicy ripe oranges.WM6 is a World away from the horrid dusky OS that was known as WM2003.Every new release of WM see's some small,yet dynamic improvements.The quality of software that a developer can produce for WM is really quite impressive,a symbian developer can not replicate,at best the symban app would be 60percent of the WM program.Power users demand/need software that's close to desktop class.Symbian has it's place but it's place is NOT on devices like the X1
...every SE phone user finds it weird that X-X1 supports micro SD (TransFlash) only
and none for Sony's own M2.
and also X-X1's departure from is own regular Fast Port to 3.5mm audio jack.
of course, 3.5mm audio jack is good
but it should have been an addition to the regular SE phones features...
hopefully the final version of X-X1 will integrate these regular features
so that SE accessories previously bought and used with older SE models
can be used with this X-X1.
looks like X-X1 is not a real SE phone...
i have k850i for my Rogers
and w910i for my roaming...
Yes QWERTY keyboard, YES camera, Yes WIFI! I hope at&t puts this phone in their lineup. I would put all my business lines on this phone. Amazing.
does anyone else think it's weird they dont have support for a M2 card, but have one for a transflash??
