Sony Ericsson had been coming with excellent phones to date. Windows mobile always sucks! It hangs endlessly. Sony Ericsson is making a wrong move by incorporating Windows in its phone.
Why in gods name is this running WM instead of symbian like every other sony smartphone?
I thought my prayers had been answered until that terrible OS took a steaming pile all over my hopes and dreams
It has Windows Mobile 6. That alone is enough for a buy. symbian OS sucks
To join the discussion on Symbian and Windows Mobile OSs. I have had Symbian on Noka 9210, 8500 and E90. I have had Windows mobile on PDAs O2 XDAIIs and Atom
I much prefer Symbian it is much more stable and less prone to hanging.
Windows mobile to too prone to resetting all optons and deleting ALL data.
Microsoft has a lot of work to do to get close to the user comfort levels of Symbian.
A very good balance between functionality & style.
Hope this phone is available soon...
As for the people making a big deal about 65k, 262k & 16M colors...
The Windows platform does not natively support 262k colors. It only supports 65k & 16M, and if they go with 16M colors the battery life of the device will ultimately be sacrificed... Anyway, the naked eye couldn't distinguish the difference between 65k, 262k & 16M. The screen is too small to tell such a difference.
And besides, how many of you can tell the color difference of a 262k N80 from a 16M N95? I believe none of us can using just our eyes... =)
symbian simply CANN0T c0mpete with wind0ws m0bile!!! WM is far, FAR SUPERI0R than same 0' lame-0 B0RING symbian.
al0t 0f the peepz here already sed wut wind0ws can d0 and i agree wit them 100%!!! diz' pj sumn' dude had sum really g00d stuff ta say abt it & i g0tta sec0nd that!
symbian is FER KIDZ/TEENIES wh0 r EASILY impressed ph0nes CRAMMMMMED wit FEATURES!!! l0l. even if th0se features perf0rm @ bel0w avg. levels!!! l0l.
symbian ph0nes have really 'laughable' PIM functi0ns and as a PDA - its EVEN W0RSE!!!
can u call the n95/n82/n96 PDA PH0NES??? didnt think s0! l0l. they can 0nly b classified as 'smartph0nes' cuz they can install 3rd party appz but thats ab0ut it!!!
thats 0k th0 - kidz like ta sh0w 0ff their "c00l" gadgetz & d0nt even need a PDA yet!!!
s0 if ur a little 'teenie b0pper kid' stick t0 yer symbian ph0nes cuz their just GREAT!!!!! L0L!
everythings c00l just leave WIND0WS M0BILE t0 us 'gr0wnups'!
it's 65k because because Windows Mobile 6 ONLY support 65k colors.
so if u want to blame someone blame microsoft for that.
Is it just me or do you get the feeling that all the mobile phone manufacturers are holding back?
Why won't at least one of them just bring out the ultimate PDA phone with all the fruit no holding back, I'm talking the best processor with the best touch screen, +5mp camera, QTY keyboard and jog dial, GPS, all connectivity including IR Wifi and BT etc etc ect, you get the point.
I think I speak for us all who visit these websites when I say to the mobile phone manufacturers "don't hold back just BRING IT ON show us what you can really do!
give SE a break since this is their first WM venture. if some of you thought it was cool and all and can afford it, by all means get it when it comes out. and to some who thought that this is not their thing and surely couldn't afford it, could you just please...SHUT UP!
I don't want to upset anyone but I must state the obvious. Most of the glory goes to HTC. They built the phone. SE only branded it with their name. It was HTC who were brave enough to pioneer using Qualcomm's MSM7200 processor in mobiles which is the engine of this phone. The second accolade must go to Nokia. This Finnish company did so well in bringing all in one devices to everyone. Great cam, videoing, music and telephony in one device. If we tell ourselves the truth SE has always been STINGY with camcording. It was only with pressure from Nokia that they grudgingly implemented VGA at 30fps!!
@SE and Nokia fan
90% people here never going to buy this phone since 80% features of this phone are useless for many people other reason is that the phone going to be expensive so stop posting crap for the phone that you will never going to buy for one who says that N-series uses slow processor don't know that 369Mhz ARM11 with 220Mhz GPU is faster than 520Mhz CPU like what TOSHIBA G900 suffered from for its slow performance also Symbian don't required too much processing XPERIA X1 is not Nokia killers its HTC, APPLE iPHONE, O2, I-mate killer , the only phone which is comparable to this phone is Nokia E90. NOKIA N'series targeted towards young generation just like SE w'series do you think a business man going to snap photos from 5MP camera he have a time to listen music for hours does a businessman going to play N-gage games or record VGA-video no way the SE XPERIA X1 do have multimedia features as buisness man do like music, taking photos etc but very rarely also XPERIA X1 features like WVGA screen, touch screen with handwriting recognisation, GPS, WI-FI, document viewer and editor etc which are essential features for a business man so stop comparing two phones of different categories Nokia N96 is very nice multimedia phone where as SE XPERIA X1 is Amazing Business phone with lots of multimedia and business features there is only one word to descricbe XPERIA X1 "AMAZING"
SE did not convince me yet (I mean they are on the way)
but surely is a good brand
I will have a SE to be proud of
at first glance, this phone looks like a typical PDA phone and an upgraded version of the P1i, with gps function and windows mobile os thrown in.
looks wise, it isnt the best looking phone but neither are the functions.
with so many 5 megapixels camera phones coming out on the market, people will wonder why this phone only has 3.15
this phone looks like it was made to compete with nokia's communicator series, however, this phone lacks the necessary RAM to beat nokia.
even the nokia n82 has a processing ram bigger than the communicator series, making it a much better phone.
so this phone isn't the best as what many has said.
