wow.... i love this phone already... but im having second thoughts about it because it's running on windows... im using P1i.
the desing of the mobile device is just great,it has everything that a good PDA needs,Qwerty slide keyboard, WM OS, touchscreen,and don't forget,it is a bussines device, and believe me,it works running your bussines over it,while not in office.
I have a Qtek 9100,and before that, i was having the Nokia E65,and Symbian just can't beat WM!So,it was time,that SE made a phone with it.
in fact, who needs a 5MP camera,I don't.If a wanna take good pics,a just take my camera with me.And 3.15MP is far enough.
Good job SE,I hope that nokia will putt WM in the next generation of the E-series,maybe in N too.
woooooow SONY ERICSSON has done it again, but with out a 5megapixel camera however this phone is a beauty!! iphone you better look out or reform or sumn d only thing i see competing with this work of modern tech art is the Nokia N96!! WHY they didnt put in a 5mp? it would have been PERFECT!!! and i mean PERFECT and with flash offcourse led/xenon !!! well hear what SE before you release the real version throw in the 5mp pleaseeee!!!! i will buy it in a heart beat!!
This X1 phone is great.
I hope the flash strong enough to provide light in dark place. 3M is enough for me.
1 thing missing is TV out. I like when I was at home video calling using big TV screen in living room. But hey, OS is WM. May be there will be third party software that can remote WM from my PC using big monitor. (In that case I have to buy multimedia PC).
Outside of that this is the best MOBILE thing... Does it support High Capacity Card??
scroll all the way down it says MicroSD support
there is still a lot of people arguing that it is not microSD, and no GSM Arena is not the only on that says it is. its on many other sites and it is also listed in SONY ERICSSON's website as well
If you want to sell millions of high end Nokia\'s you flash the words 5MP camera,16million colors,Symbian such a contrast to SE who know the functionality of the OS,camera,screen,software is what attracts Higher end users.

You like repeating yourself? Don't you?
Good phone in general but important features missing:
-More screen color (only 65K, the K800 has 256K)
The next version of this phone will be the best!
Why are ppl complaiing about WM interface?Their's loads of UI tweaker appications.I've seen WM pda's modded to look like iphone,s60 etc etc .Nokia and symbian's marketing machine has spread alot of lies.
(I had a few typos and wanted to fix them and add a few things more...)
This phone is truly the best. It has great functionality and a stainless-steel design with a glass touchscreen and optical navigation pad. It also as Windows Mobile 6.5, which will be far better than Symbian.
Nokia fans are jealous of this phone and that it beats the Nseries handsdown. I know...you guys will start talking about the n95's 5MP camera and 16 million QVGA screen. Well guess what!? 3MP is efficient for a phone, and the picture quality is far more important than the megapixels. Sony is known for its excellent picture quality, like the K800.
Now, in terms of the screen-same thing. The colors are not as important as the resolution. Although this phone has 65K colors, it will not be noticable at all, considering that this phone has a VGA resolution screen.
The Nseries is worthless. All the phones are plastic and flimsy. There is not one Nseries phone that has a touchscreen, stainless steel design, slide out keyboard or VGA screen. I am not saying that all of the Nseries phones have bad features. There design could just be better, considering the fact that the Nseries are Nokia's flagship phones.
For example, the n95 has a pathetic 330Mhz processor. The Xperia has a 520 Mhz. processor-maybe even more.
People are also complaining about the interface. First of all, Windows Mobile 6.5 has not been released yet. So people should seriously stop saying that it is terrible, just because Windows Mobile 6.1 was. I have heard that WM 6.5 will come with many improvements. So, don't judge the interface when it hasn't even been released and you haven't even tried it.
Also, wait for WM 7 to come out in 2009. I am sure that SE will offer a firmware/upgrade, knowing SE for its excellent customer service. SE won the best customer satisfaction award in 2007!
This phone is very innovative. SE has somewhat altered the Windows Mobile interface to make it much better. The tabs are very cool.
Also, this is the first SE phone to sport a built-in 3.5 MM headphone jack, which is simply amazing, considering the excellent quality of music offered by SE phones. The phones without this feature and with adapters have much worse music quality.
This phone is designed for business, entertainment, and everything else you would want in a perfect phone.
This phone will come out late September, early October of this year.
Xperia is simply the best!
To tell you the truth I'm tired of the "iphone killers." SE had a good thing going with the touch screen symbian based phones. If I wanted an iphone I'd get an iphone. I like SE but I guess SE likes the iphone?
to the guy who said a k790 beats a viewty in picture quality LOL I use to own a K790a and there is no comparison the k790a was good for its time but now its time to move on if i had to give the k790 props for anything it'll be it took quicker pictures thats it though outside of that the quality and everything is better on the viewty by far im sure the xperia will be great though..
Haha.. I work at the Sony Ericsson Technical Support center in North America.. And i must say when this phone comes out.. we're going to get swamped with calls from people who will A. Break the phone in half, B. Won't know how to turn the damn thing on, Or C. Just won't know how to use it!! All i have to say is READ THE DAMN MANUAL! AND TAKE CARE OF THE PHONE!
Steve J X1 will be running WM6.5,perhaps you should find out about WM before posting such utter nonsense.The whole Symbian environment is AWFUL which is why the applications are so inferior to WM Apps.
Don't be silly! WM cannot touch Nokia (Symbian) when it comes to multimedia. The OS allows for excellent 3D acceleration without having to use battery draining overclocked processors. Beautiful colour screens that WM can only dream about (look at the E90; it has both a colourful and high res screen). Furthermore one achieves great camcording and photography considering it's only a phone. How many years will it take for WM To implement camcording at VGA;30fps??
Apple iPhone is the most Lamest Phone since Kentucky Fried Chicken !
Nokia/SE for life for me SE Does it!!
Keep up the Great Work SE !!
we love you....
WM is best suited to users who are blessed with average intelligence.Dumbo's will prefer Symbian.
Personally im a HUGE nokia supporter and quite love the S60 interface...but HOT DAMN....this phone is lovely....it would be great if nokia hurried up and released their touchscreen phone like ASAP...and i do agree...apple sux!!
