Such a nice hardware with an ugly Windows sad. No touch-flow either. And it seem a bit slow too from what I can see. I think Windows should best do away with the out-dated start menu style that it has for Window ugly and useless with tiny font and options. I used P900, P910, P990, M600i, and P1. I was waiting for this phone for a while, but I guess not any more...

This isn't so much a brick as the Wing or other counterparts. But I still ask myself how come people still wanna have to use two hands to type a text? You know you don't really need this phone, you just want it because it's nice looking and it's got cool different features like the little control sensor-looking deal..

honestly.. i think my tytnii can do more than this phone :-p

well 3.2MP is ok with this kind of phone do you imagine using a bulky phone such as this as a camera phone? besides its competing with nokia's E90 a serious phone this one... the lag is out of the question since this a prototype..though i see a lot of advantages in using Windows as its OS because of its purpose though it seems that using a more glorified symbian UIQ version is a lot OS has a lot of buggy feature inherent to the OS itself... it should have been OK if it wasnt SE :(

The guy in the Video doesn't seem to know how to use a smartphone properly. May be a marketing guy with little knowledge. Sony UI seems to be very slow too. Well, we can disable the UI, if it is useless. What I want is amazing specs X1 with WM, not with stupid modification, which let the phone down in performance.

What a very beautiful device with a very ugly interface inside!

  • X1 lover

the overall performance should be improvedthere by commercial. it is amazing 3.0 inch WVGA touch display with this arc slide, then this small size. In japanese market, there are several WVGA model, but all hand set are too big and more slow. This X1 could change industry's power balance. let's see.

the speed will improve, this is not the final version, and the drivers of the gpu are not finaliced

  • d3xlabs

what a bad video. Too much lighting. Anyway, I agree. WM devices are still not fantastic. But, SE has made the right move by moving away from their UIQ Symbian OS. I think I'll wait for the Nokia E71. If its real.

Is there a way to switch from Windows Mobile to anything else?

I just hate any MS product (debian)

  • this_is_alright

if this phone is a thousand dollars then it's definitely not worth it.

  • yanziforever

i think it could be more fastter tilt 8925 is run better than this x1 ..but i still waiting for the x1 ...

  • Xadion

A bit disappointed with the interface. Could have been more faster and more responsive.

Take note with the iphone!
