Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970currently i'm seeing the Xperia, Unlocked "U.S. version", for $599.00.
really awesome price, especially when comparing it to the "subsidized" price that the local carrier is selling it for here (for 'contract' plans; for 'prepay', they're selling it at the original price of $799.99 + 5% sales-tax. and, it's NOT UNLOCKED either way!!!!)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970How much does it cost?
Whichever cellphone I'd get, I'd probably try to find it online UNLOCKED. (I've been able to find the Xperia unlocked, on amazon.com)
I currently have (and am still using) the Nokia 5300, and I'm shopping for a possible replacement. I'm currently looking at these 3: Nokia N97, Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 (my first cellphone was a "Ericsson GA 628" (this one: http://www.gsmarena.com/ericss..._628-105.php ), and I really have no problem going back to [Sony] Ericsson cellphones, if really it turns out that the best of the 3 I'm currently looking at, is the XPERIA X1.
Yes, I know, "there's a new model of XPERIA coming out", "the Nokia N97's got 32GB of memory", and "the Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music came out before the N97, so, supposedly -- at least in gsmarena.com -- SOME (not all) of the kinks of the Symbian OS for touch-screen cellphones, have been worked out".
But I'm really looking for a cellphone that's:
3. has durable battery life (I'm not big on having Bluetooth on 24-7, or always browsing the Internet, or any of those battery-draining activities. I use them when I'm in the mood and/or "urgent need" to use them, but otherwise, I just leave them off. Period.),
4. you can easily organize and manage your contacts
(in the 2 Nokia cellphones I've had so far -- the 5300 Xpress-Music and the 'Nokia 8210', this one> http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_8210-19.php -- I've always liked how I can very easily organize multiple phone-numbers, e-mail addresses, website addresses, street addresses, birthdays, nicknames, etc etc, and other things, into one contact, and all that information would just appear under ONE name, instead of HAVING EACH-PIECE of contact information appear "SEPARATELY" and/or like a "separate contact", like my Motorola V220 did; it made the darn address-book be WAY MORE CLUTTERED, and i DESPISED that!!)
5. Bluetooth, integrated camera, 3G, not 'complicated' to learn (and/or "too hard a learning-curve, that makes the cellphone just not be worth the hassle of learning how to use it" -- yes, I always read the manual on my cellphone though, by the way)
6. The Bluetooth capabilities DEFINITELY DO need to have the ability to transfer files from cellphone to cellphone (not just sending files, but also RECEIVING files), including (but not limited to): MP3 files (for ringtones, listening to music, etc), photos, video-clips, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. (Ahh, the magic of having Bluetooth on my Nokia 5300, especially when before that my cell-phone was the Motorola V220).
7. durable. "good quality" construction. "solid"-feeling. (i don't harass and/or "brutalize" my cellphone -- I do try to take good care of my things -- but I don't like for my cellphone to feel as if it was a 1-milimeter-thick piece of glass that could break at the slightest touch).
Any recommendations on which of these 3 cellphones to get? ie. Nokia 5800 Xpress-Music, Nokia N97, Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1?
(overall, in general, which is the best option??
and, then again: which is the best option, for ME???)
I also forgot to mention: Quad-Band [GSM] is a COMPLETE, DEFINITE, AND UNQUESTIONABLE MUST!!<br>
by the way, I'm going to be using the new cellphone (whichever I am recommended to get) on AT&T [in the States], "prepay" as opposed to "contract". And, I'm going to make sure that I buy the darn cellphone UNLOCKED (like maybe from Amazon.com or some other place where I can find the cellphone chosen, unlocked).
Good call-quality, good cellphone-reception, I can hear the person on the other line well, the person on the other line can hear ME well (and also, "loud and clear", obviously).
Another thing I noticed: Look at Episode 12 (ie. "Knight To King's Pawn") of the new "Knight Rider " tv-show. Sarah Graiman, in the beginning of the episode, when she hangs up on Michael Knight's phone-call, she's using an XPERIA!!! (this IS NOT affecting my decision to buy one though, by the way)

Xperia X1's 3.2 megapixel camera and flash.
Picture quality was pretty good. Colors looked almost true to life and while we thought there was a bit of softness to the image, we were still able to clearly identify objects in the photo.
Video quality was also good. There was minimal pixelation, even during scenes were there was a bit of movement and action.
X1 is the best XD
rey castillo, 26 Jul 2009up to how many gb memory card can this phone take?The X1 has about 400MB of onboard memory, and the expansion slot can accept up to 16GB cards.

For UAE readers: Mine came with an 8Gb micro sd from which you can install thumb friendly UI software from MObidiv in english and arabic. Prayer times included with a very clear adhaan. How cool is that!
I sold my previous smartphone (BBCurve 8900) to buy the X1 and it's the best decision I've ever made. My previous phone was very good but the X1 in my opinion is outstanding and the most underated smartphone on the market.
outdated phone next one is coming everybody hands up for the X2 :p http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=IT&hl=it&v=vs4OWMQ4NMw
