As many of you already know about the tie up of SE and M$ announced earlier at MWC at Barcelona, here comes Sony Ericsson's extremely cool looking XPERIA series of handsets with Windows Mobile 6 loaded on them. This time, there is no denying that the features look really good and we might have to wait till its release to actually find out how good they are. With that gorgeous screen/TS panel, it is enough to make many people drool. :) I think the only thing lacking here would have been a 5 MP cam.... rest is quite flawless...:)

Seems good.
The things lacking are a good camera (5 MP or more) & a good music player.
I might dispose of my Nokia N95 to buy this if it gains momentum!!

Nowz the time for revelations....:lol: :D the device is "supposedly" manufactured by HTC, SE would only manufacture the software interface and customizations. And again, if this RUMOR is true, it is still a gorgeous device. My only gripe is the camera which should have been 5 MP AF with VGA 30 fps video recording + Xenon Flash. Then it would have been the PERFECT ONE !!!!! :)

Wire muncher!
Looks good :)

Guess I was wrong in the thred nokia and MS that SE may not go WM way!

too cool!though without wm and use linux or symbian will be a must!
Symbian??!! No way!! Never.. and Linux is good for general purpose PDA but for phones like these Linux still needs to mature a lot on the PDA/Mobile platform. No doubt the kernel is solid! :)

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is one of the most exciting Windows Mobile phones since the Blackjack 2 and the (phantom) i-mate 9502. With a 800x480 pixel display, it is probably going to be the new reference in terms of productivity and entertainment. Users can control it the way they want: Touch screen, joystick or via the elegant Arc slider QWERTY keyboard. Finally, it has WiFi, 3.5G and assisted-GPS – features that will make a big difference, given that web browsing and location based are popular apps these days.


Highlights
  • 3” touch display 800x480 pixels
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900 + HSDPA (3G)
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Windows Mobile
  • Touch screen
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with Auto-focus
  • Joystick navigation
  • Assisted GPS
  • Bluetooth, WiFi
  • 110 x 53 x 16.7 mm, 145g
  • The Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ X1 will be available in “selected markets” from the second half of 2008.

Sony-Ericsson intros XPERIA X1 'iPhone killer'

sony-ericssonxperiax1-lg3.jpg


Sony-Ericsson opened the Mobile World Congress today by unveiling the XPERIA X1, its first true touchscreen-focused cellphone. Following a deal with Microsoft, the handset is Sony-Ericsson's first device to use Windows Mobile for its OS but also uses a custom interface of "XPERIA panels" rather than the default Microsoft front-end: users simply tap panels with their fingers to access calling, media, and other functions, according to the phone designer. Though dominated by its 3-inch, 800x480 touchscreen, the device also includes both optical and physical navigation pads at the bottom as well as a unique arc-slider QWERTY keyboard that tilts outward for more comfortable typing. The X1 is also the most Internet-connected Sony-Ericsson device in history, the company boasts: unlike even most advanced 3G phones, it offers HSUPA (High Speed Upload Packet Access) that sends video and other media almost as quickly as it comes downstream. Wi-Fi is onboard for short-range networking and is backed by assisted GPS for route finding. A 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and a microSD slot (versus Sony-Ericsson's favorite Memory Stick Micro format) round out its key features.

The first XPERIA phone is expected sometime in the second half of 2008; with quad-band GSM and an unprecedented five-band HSPA/UMTS connection, the device should be available both in North America as well as Europe and includes the key 1,700MHz band needed for T-Mobile USA's upcoming 3G service.
