Upgrade the camera and the display? Are you serious?
First of all, anything above a 3.2 Megapixel camera is basically pointless on a phone. If you want bigger pictures, then go with a digital camera as I truly doubt anyone serious about photography is going to rely on their phone to create a portfolio.
Second, how exactly do you think the screen should be upgraded? It's 3" at a 800x480 resolution. This is currently the highest resolution in the mobile community.
I personally think SE hit all the nails on the head with this device. I never expected to see a product like this from SE, so it's definitely a pleasant surprize.
Good job SE! This phone seems worth waiting for, and i'm excited to get more info on it.
X1 is the something else on what is on the market right now. Clearly will be the iPhone killer and Nokia killer with all their models. It's superb and.....it's Sony Ericsson.
"please keep in mind that Sony Ericsson is only about bringing premium user xperience.. it starts from XPERIA the land of premium experiences." SE absolutely the Best.
Dearest GSM Arena please could you include details of RAM, type of GPS chipset, processor type and battery capacity in the technical specifications page.
One thing this SE has proven is that there is a large market for QWERTY based phones. I hope that Nokia makes a similar slide-out phone ( they have already done that with the Nokia N810 internet tablet) with full N-series features. Everyone knows that when it comes to multimedia, Nokia are unbeatable.
its a Nokiakiller
NOKIA JUST FIRED 2000 WORKES IN Inzbrug, and now you can get it trouble if somebody ses you on the street with a Nokia.
Dont flash any Nokia phones here!!!
SE has released at least seven new phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and only ONE of them is worth talking about. This does not bode well for SE!
It is clear that SE cannot compete with Nokia when it comes to multimedia. One has only to look at the underpowered camera which lacks Xenon flash to realise that this offering is not top dollar. Some of you are rejoicing over camcording at VGA,30fps yet Nokia have been doing it for years! Whether or not SE's camcording will be standard especially during fast moving scenes will have to be tested.
I hope this new offering will run smoothly and reliably. I also hope that SE can release it BEFORE 6 months otherwise Nokia and others will beat them to the punch!
Well it looks good, just like zinc or tytn, even the OS is the same. Let's see if wm6 can really do the work in this device. I know wm6 has more apps library and easily hackable, but not that fun. I hope this one is faster and more stable. What a surprise, sony ericsson! -- ponselinsider
The only problem with SE is its high price. I would imagine this model will cost not less than US$1,000 which is too much. If the price is between US$600 to US$700 I would say price is cool enough.
TFT touchscreen, 65K colors :) iPhone => 16 mln. maybe not so much software, but - xperia x1 definetly will have LAG when operating :)
I like sony Ericsson too mutch and very nice mobile.pieaes down price.
When XPERIA X1 is released, then apples going down the drain!
by the way, the XPERIA X1 shouldn't be called the iphone killer, it should be called the nokia n95-2 killer.
why is XPERIA X1 better
1.it has qwerty keyboard
2.it has 2x resolution as iphone on only a 3"
3.it has a decent camera
4.it has buttons so you don't need to put up with touchscreen
5.you can actually hear people when you call them! unlike the iphone.
6. the XPERA X1 is only a concept, and works just fine at the moment, apart from the graphics hardware. by mid 2008 many people would agree that when it is released, it will be much better than what we have been waiting for.
7.it's got 3g!
8.a 3.5mm jack which works with ALL headphones, unlike iphone where it only works with ipod headphones (which by the way, many people would agree that they are bad quality anyway)
go check for yourself
VGA@30fps video record.
you forgot to state the VGA video recording @30fps
it is officially stated in the SE website!!!
