Last comment - the gps only works when you have a signal there is no map built in. So if you drive to an area with no phone reception like the countryside trying to find a B&B then the map stops working - there seems to be no built in map. Surely this can't be right - but when I go to maps all I see is a grey screen with the ability to scroll to an image of the area that was last in range.

My wife has one. It is an awful phone and we are going to take it back having used it for 3 weeks. Battery life is poor. Recharge for 2 hours and then goes flat in 10 mins of use. The 8mp camera has instructions on how to use the flash but there is no flash - can't take any night time shots they come out dark and blurred - even from 3 feet away with the permanent light on and brightness turned all the way up. When you answer the phone your ear can cancel the call. The ringer is very quiet - can't hear it. The volume when someone talks is too low - can't actually hear anyone in cafe - and dont try putting your ear next to the phone as it will cancel the call as said earlier. Odd way of having to phone someone from your contacts - you have to try it to know what we are on about. Avoid it like the plague. She's had various SE phones in the past - I've never liked SE - Nokia myself but this is the worst!!

had tried the x10 mini and so far the touch screen experience is great, other than the iphone , this is the next phone with the best tactic feedback ever seen. as for the bluetooth functionality, simply go to the andriod market to download the bluetooth apps.note: the bluetooth function works aliitle different as to compare to the usual bluetooth as you would expect .having played around with the phone(my friend has bought one)for an hour , the overall experience is gd, the only downside of the phone is the available apps for downloads,web browsing is certainly fast but has got no pinch to zoom function .screen size is definitely a compromise as the name suggested,its a mini!so if you are looking for a compact phone, x10 mini is the choice, otherwise, go for its bigger brother the x10.

But hope as Ravz commented on my post earlier, battery life improves after a week or so. it just 5 days for me with the new phone
