Is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 better than the Apple iPhone?

So at the Mobile World Congress 2008, Sony Ericsson brought out their be-all, end-all, PDA style, super smartphone, the XPERIA X1, and showed it off in all its glory to the world. A shiny new sparkling mobile that doesn’t disappoint in the looks department, as it’s believed HTC had a lot to do with it; with its 3 inch touch-screen, touch sensitive trackball, slide out QWERTY keyboard, and all run on the extremely familiar Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro OS.


Product Reviews has raised an obvouis question which we thought we would carry on – But…doesn’t the XPERIA X1 seem somewhat similar to Apple’s iPhone? Now the question arises, is the XPERIA X1 a challenge to the iPhone? Does Apple have something to worry about with the arrival of the XPERIA X1?

Apple’s iPhone has been around for a while now, so maybe Sony Ericsson’s new XPERIA X1 chould be possibly seen as a challenge to the iPhone, and why not as it has virtually the same style and makeup doesn’t it? And so to the biggest question there is…is the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 a better handset than Apple’s iPhone?

Well, to answer that or any of the above I guess we will just have to wait until the public can get their hands on the XPERIA X1 so it can actually be fully compared to the iPhone. So, if you do manage to grab hold of one of these babies feel free to drop us a line to express your views.

    The size may be a little big but what a piece of kit! I for one will be buying this phone when it is released! The justification for having the phone larger for me is that I currently use the P990i, good phone and has done me well for 18 months but it is just too clunky. A touch screen that can rival the iPhone has got to be good, no matter how large the phone! If my my man sized fingers can handle the touch screen then I’ll be happy, the fact that most phones are not big enough for my hands is a trouble for me. So I am hoping that the X1 is all its cracked up to be! Can’t wait for the release date!

    The X1 has 3G video calling, 30 fps Video, GPS, recording, A2DP Wireless bluetooth stereo profile, Micro SD card support upto 32GB, Handwriting recognition, 3.2MP Camera with auto focus, macro & photo light, Slide Out QWERTY keyboard, MMS, Bluetooth file transfer, FM RDS radio, Mini USB port, the list goes on & on & on.

    The iPhone’s doesn’t.

    And the iPhone 3G isn’t much better!
