Hands on video of Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1: Few things revealed

The first hands on video is out in the open of Sony Ericsson’s XPERIA X1 thanks to Gizmodo. Gizmodo the lucky buggers got their hands on the stunning Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 which if you click the video link below you can watch.

They went on to say that whilst they were playing with this Xperia, Sony’s Windows Mobile phone with a hiptop QWERTY they revealed a few things.

XPERIA X1 hands on

Some of the things Gizmodo said were —
– Keyboard play was nice, even if clicks weren’t as satisfying as those on a gummy Hiptop QWERTY.
– The API for the 3D tile UI will be opened later on.
– The demo only went as far as the 3D skin; anything beyond that plunged you into the depths of typical Windows Mobile-ness.
– The screen is not exactly brilliant, but I believe the Sony Ericsson booth could have all
– Those icons are like the mini windows you’d see when switching windows in Vista or OS X’s Expose. But on this tiny high res screen, they’re impossible to read.
its phones brightness turned down to extend battery life on the busy show floor.
– It’s cool, but because of the underlying OS, I wouldn’t call it a killer of anything, let alone an iPhone.

So basically what they are saying is that it is not an iPhone killer, PHEW bet Apple are relieved. Watch the Gizmodo hands on video of Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 here.

    Whoever wrote this article needs to do his or her homework, as the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 definately has a spec sheet that wipes the floor with many a convergence device let alone the iPhone 3G.

    The iPhone can’t even send a basic MMS, let alone record a video, The iPhone has a Poor 2MP camera with No auto focus, No video calling, No voice dailing, No FM radio, No handwriting recognition, No A2DP, No expanable memory card support, No decent text input method, shall I continue… because the list of iPhone short comings goes on and on and on.

    Now I suppose that you will say there are all kinds of wonderful third party apps that will enable some of these functions to work.


    As many of these features & functions are included in the most basic of todays mobile phones right out of the box.
