Sony Ericsson finally steps in and shows (cr)Apple how to make a phone. This probably is the full fledged mediaphone as the iPhone, but plus the uber business convenience and power of Windows Mobile with Office.
And guess what? This has a proper and convienent QWERTY rather than a micro in-screen OWERTY you need to use your fingernails and squint your eyes to use on an iPhone.
Yes people... two things with the camera:
A. Megapixels mean crap all for picture quality. I can find a 5mp camera that can easily out do a 7mp camera anyday. Its all got to do with the LENS/SENSOR of the camera, and the SOFTWARE which processes the picture.
B. People... this is a business/media phone. NOT, i repeat, NOT a camera. I know some great 5mp cameras are out in the market, but why would this phone need one if you purchased this 'business' phone for 'business'? If you wanted a camera, you go buy a digital camera or a s.e. cybershot for your weekend phone if you insist on having the X1.
Win Mobile has around 20000 applications.The OS is favoured in the USA and is somewhat unknown in europe hence why many people believe Symbian has a superior software library.Let me tell you WM software ROCKS.
one oggd thing I noted, is microSD, that bulls**t sony md is useless.
alot of readers acknowledge that this phone needed better camera like 5 megs, but SE is always lagging in video recording despite of 5 meg camera. (eg w960 vs nokia n95)
ppl who r talkin about the pixels r racists. it matters by the resolution, pixels do not have anything to do with how nice the screen looks. HDTVs dont have pixels, its called contrast ratio racists ppl
I would had loved to buy this phone if it was Symbian S60 (as UIQ has very less apps out), also I do not know if there is any S60 with touchscreen, & with 5 meg camera. then that would had made this hot as hell, no nokia, no samsung would had competed that.
oh yes, I recalled, nokia is gonna launch S60 touch interface, would be good to see phones in this form factor.
& what's about optical joystick? how it will work?
Of coarse WM has better apps.Show me a symbian app that is in any way comparible with softmaker Office,show me a symbian browser that has the amount of options/features of the WM version of Netfront 3.3 or the new 3.5,show me a symbian version of Opera that can play youtube embedded in the browser-(with fp7 installed WM Opera can),show me a symbian app that has the capabilities of The WM version of TCPMP..you get the drift SON
sorry, the Gigabyte has measly 65k colors like every other junk Windows Mobile phone.
Motorola Q2, Blackjack, HTC Touch and Shift. all paltry 65,000 colors.
lol @ Windows having better apps than Symbian. like what?
i saw the ultimate 9502 that i first wanted now that i see one made by SE. i want the xperia. does anyone know how much this will cost
I believe the CPU is an intel 520 mhz ...feast your eyes

OMG!!! My laptop only has a vertical resolution of 800px, the same as the resolution as this phone!!! All in a 3" screen!!!
Finally a device that can kick every ass there is! Trust only SE to do this. I was about to get an ETEN after waiting for the I-Mate Ultimate 9150... but this has sloved it beyond doubt!
Guys it's the RESOLUTION that counts.Take a n80 screen and compare with N95 screen,n80 screen is better.The display will be AWESOME as will the apps you will be able to run.WM apps are far more sophisticated than symbian ones
How does Gigabyte manages to put 256k with Windows Mobile ??? Anyone knows!!!
people mind telling me what the hell are u going to do with 16m color on a three inch screen? i understand it is a disappointing factor, like how every was complaining about the htc shift's resolution (quote:which as a 7inch screen) 3inch with 16million color, i can bet u cant even fit 1million dots on the three inch screen. i would understand if ppl are really upset about something they missing out that could be USEFUL! but then again, DAMN U LIMITED 65K COLOR! I WANTED TV OUT!! now even if they have that it'll be choppy. (still its not a BIG MATTER)
i do not blame Microsoft, i blame Sony Ericsson because they chose to put that garish operating system on a beautiful piece of hardware.
it is very pathetic that after all this time Windows is still such low quality screens. they have been making OS for phones for likely 10 years now. Apple can design iPhone with 16 million color screen on first try and Microsoft cannot?
it is ridiculousness and this should be Symbian. it cannot compete with Nokia as Windows.
