Mobile War: Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, HTC Touch Diamond & Apple 3G iPhone picture scoop
We all know that the mobile phone war is heating up for 2008 especially when the fight looms on between the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, HTC Touch Diamond & Apple 3G iPhone, choices have to make but will the right choices be made?
The pictures below show these three mobile phones side by side and of course on top of each other which is a nice site indeed, maybe someone should combine all three phones and see what happens, ok maybe not it would be a pretty big handset if they did that. Seems like 2008 is going to be a nightmare to choose between these mobile phones, to me they are not even phones they are gadgets/little computers really. CNET Asia decided it was time to put these images together and must say they are looking good. Please answer our question which is below the specs plus take a look at all the photos.
