XPERIA X1 dresses up with a new thumbable interface panel

23 Oct, 2008
We guess that you probably know pretty much everything about the XPERIA X1 Pocket PC. So you know Sony Ericsson are staking much on their proprietary panels interface. It turns out that one of the panels...

The SPB Mobile Shell was/is very nice indeed.
They will have to come up with something a lot better for me to switch to another panel. It feels so good that I'm considering removing a couple of the other panels, since I will not be using them.

What annoys me with the X1/WindowsMobile/Vista/My Toshiba laptop (take your pick) is that the bluetooth connection doesn't work both ways. It works fine (sending files) from the X1 to the laptop, but the laptop can't connect to the X1.

Secondly, it simply refuses to work with my FON wifi router. It connects fine, but there's no traffic. While using wifi at work it appears to work.

I will be calling SE support a bit during this week to see if they have any insight in what's causing the problems.

No i dont work for SE or HTC, i can only see one realy
bad thing with SE x1 THE CAMERA(and screensize), HTC cant build cameraphones
i have a HTC Diamond and it really sux, my Nokia n82 takes
briliant pictures.
And when screen is so small and u have high resolutions its hard
to work on the phone :(
thats why i take touch hd instead

and here comes some info about symbian from wikipedia:

on 24 June 2008, Nokia announced that they intended to acquire all shares that they did not already own.[1] The acquisition was of €264 million, or $410 million.[2]

soo if you think twice u will see that if SE wants to use symbian
they have to pay royallties to nokia, and trust me they dont want
to do that..

so they are whitout any OS, so the choice for a new os is linux or wm
and the easiest way to go is wm, there is no descent linuxphone out there.

And about sd/sdhc memory:

SDHC support 32gb TODAY, if they follow the SD standard but if they dont strictly follow the standard SD association set up, SDHC support
2048gb(2TB)(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Digital_card#SDHC_cards_with_greater_than_32_GB_capacity)

at last the best userinterface today have iphone, its fast and easy and looks nice (rest in iphone sux big time)

Everyone's different.

Personally, I would pick a HTC touch HD as well.

Vishal, 27 Oct 2008Hi all, I just want to know one thing that upto what w... moreI think the iPhone you were referring to was the Ipod Touch, which has a maximum storage of 32 gb.

The maximum size the X1 could hold is 32 gigs of storage memory through SD slot. However, the maximum size of an SD card right now is 16 gb, not 32 gigs yet.

  • Problems

[deleted post]You have a good point. HTC is up and coming.
Nokia still has a great grip for the phone industry.
Sony Ericsson has no idea about what they were doing, that's why they had to shift to Windows Mobile for touch screen. They are losing control over UIQ and those touch based devices along with it, which include P series.
However, Sony Ericsson has control over the walkman industry, which apparently, appeals more to youngsters than working adults.

Nokia, Sony Ericsson and HTC is still making better progress than Motorola, which is ridiculous that their "Hello Moto" mobile phones could still attract the attention of customers. I find it overrated.

Apple iPhone is overrated as well.

Hi, is this phone slightly outdated compared to other smart phones since it was announced long ago. In comparison, between the Xperia X1 and C905 which phone will last? The Xperia X1 could be outdated by next year when Nokia launches its n-series touch screens.

Will Rogers have the phone? Or is it only being launched in the states?
