Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

If you are happy with a Windows Mobile operating system, then the Xperia is certainly one to consider

Screen quality, Panels, build quality, good headphones, 3.5mm jack, HSDPA, Wi-Fi

Keyboard not the best, Windows Mobile UI suffers against BlackBerry and iPhone

So where does that leave you overall? If you need a Windows Mobile device, this is among the more user-friendly versions, but doesn’t quite go as far as some of the HTC models. However, the quality feel in the hand will leave an impression. Brushed...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 review

 

Is Sony Ericsson's first Windows Mobile smart phone all style and not enough substance?

Touchscreen user interface ; Slide-out QWERTY keyboard ; 3.2 megapixel camera with touch focus ; 3.5mm headphone jack ; Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone ; A-GPS satellite navigation

Confusing navigation system ; Screen can be difficult to read in bright light ; Camera not top-class ; Music player not as comprehensive as Sony Ericsson's Walkman

A very good, but not great multimedia smartphone that offers great connectivity, but not enough of everything else

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 review

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 smartphone has almost everything you'd need, and is supposed to be a strong statement that the developer is a force to be reckoned with in the coming years. But while the potential is certainly there, there are glaring...

On the whole, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is an impressive phone, and together with the HTC Touch Pro it's probably the best Windows Mobile-based smartphone so far. The cons here are its annoying slowness and the fact that Sony Ericsson in some cases...

It's been a long eight months' wait, but the Xperia X1 is finally here. Is it better than the HTC Touch Diamond?

A great all round smartphone but hobbled by that blasted Windows Mobile engine
