XPeria X1 by Sony Ericsson

Sony Ericsson just announced a new line of mobile phones. Among them, a stunning XPeria X1. Check out what’s inside the package.

With bleeding edge mobile phones, the main issue that’s always the user interface and input feature. Sony Ericsson isn’t taking any chances — they’ve added a touchscreen, QWERTY slide keyboard, optical joystick and a 4-way key.

The 3-inch WVGA display is a 65k color TFT. Powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile with Outlook and Office Mobile, it device has handwriting recognition too.

The XPeria X1 also sports a 3.2MP camera, an assisted GPS, and HSDPA. If there’s any phone that could rival the iPhone, the XPeria X1 looks like a real contender.

    Awesome! Finally something really bledding-edge from Sony Ericsson. I wonder what the price tag is?

    Watch out iPhone. ;)

  2. jhay says:

    BTW, the link to the main site is broken. :D

  3. It could rival iPhone and O2 XDA Zinc for sure

  4. BrianB says:

    I wonder when they started calling “cutting edge” bleeding edge?

  5. BrianB says:

    You’ll find this really funny, but remember the rumor that Moto may be selling its handset business. Well, one of the likely buyers is ZTE corporation of China.


  6. chinesemafia says:

    I hear LG is also coming out with their own iPhone rival. I think it’s called the KF-700.

  7. yuga says:

    @brianb – in the development world, I’m always used to the term “bleeding edge” instead of “cutting edge”. I guess the bleeding is much more advanced since it comes after the cut. *heh*

  8. sylv3rblade says:

    looks hot and an ericsson phone to boot. It caters to PDa-, phone-, touchpad, and even gamers (joystick? ^^)
    Wonder what the SRP for that will be.

  9. Ade says:

    Wowowowow! This is definitely something I want. Take that, iPhone!

  10. hi yuga.. sorry if this is off-topic. didn’t know where to post it.

    chanced upon aileen apolo’s http://www.yougottech.com today, a video technology blog as they say so on the site. obviously they’re trying to play around with your domain name.. how does it feel being spoofed?

    @Batman: I still like the original, add to that we’re kasimanwas, and I frequent the island beach where Abe is rumored to live before. Haven’t met him personally though…

    On-Topic: This is a pretty cool phone, then the knock-offs will come and it wouldn’t be cool anymore… But if it’s from sony, I bet there’ll be a killer next version of this phone…

  12. ria says:

    hmmmm! when i was browsing thru the sony ericson web site i saw this model.. and wow!!!.. im sooo dying to have it!.!great!great!great..wonder how much this cost..=)

  13. Amanda says:

    It’s a nice phone… Will it be available in the Philippines soon?
    I wanted an LG voyager, which is a touchscreen phone with keypad similar to that, but I doubt it will ever be available in the Philippines.

  14. popol says:

    i really want to buy one!
    is it now available here in the Philippines?
    how much is it?

  15. 1knife says:

    this indeed is a great phone, maybe an iphone killer. but have you seen the htc touch pro? any comment on that phone? i’d love to get my hands on that.

    i wanna have this sony xperia x1! anybody knows when will it be available in the philippines?

  18. angie says:

    yey! it will be released this coming november!!! =D

  19. Magus-Baki says:

    SE X1 was officialy released already in UK last 30 Oct 2008 and the initial selling price for the flagship phone is EUR630 (PHP38,862.05++)
    But the SRP on their market is EUR560 (PHP34,525.93++).

    There have been some Mobile Ads circulating in the local Online Deal sites such as cellphone.finder.ph, which sells the unit for USD400 (PHP19,667.16++)
    But when contacted, the person is based either in the US or the UK which would be very difficult to verify the authenticity of the seller.

    No Manila Based seller has yet posted online for this phone.

    SE X1 will also be available in Mobile Shops at Greenhills perhaps prior to the 14 November Official Release but no price yet has been disclosed for this unit.

    If i buy x1 in use…will it work in Asian countries??? like Sri-lanka…india or pakistan

  21. Vinil says:

    If i buy x1 in USA…will it work in Asian countries??? like Sri-lanka…india or pakistan

  22. Vinil says:

    What happened??? i asked u 1 question and and when i refreshed this page…my question wasn’t there……
    let me ask u again…..

    If i buy X1 in USA…will it work in Sri-Lanka – India or Pakistan???

  23. Ferdie says:

    hello there. I’m one the many ppl who waited for it’s released and after 4 days with my x1, I kinda feel dissappointed comparatively price-wise. the 3.2 cam is just decent but doesn’t stabilized when shooting movements “ala” k800 and it family. The 2 music player don’t have equalizer or even mega bass w/c is SE trademark. for it’s price: bought it at 41,840 at SE SMNE cyberzone, it’s just wya hefty for its feature. I mean I have a xda zinc but user-wise it can give you what you need for a pda phone. I know the X1 specs are really good but camera and music lacks feature IMO I just wish since its really pricey then at least it should have almost every feature an SE phone has. heck for a moment I thought I bought an SE phone never thought it’s trademark in X1 isn’t emphasized. I rate it 8 out of 10.

  24. dina says:

    I dont know about X5, but for sure, they’re cooking up X2 and X3. X2 will be released last quarter of this year, and will have WM 6.5. on the otherhand, X3 will be running Android, and probably be released next year.

    selling my XPERIA X1
    highly customized for better xperience
    so now you want proof? i have created a video for all interested person:


    ~you have a choice whether to just buy it as it is (factory) or by custom apps and softwares
    ~Original (good condition just like bnew!)
    ~Brushed Silver Stainless
    ~complete set (factory sold)
    ~N.T.C registered
    ~no games just factory games (the owner had a psp and ipt for gaming) official use only
    ~3 months (lady owner minimal used only!)
      I’m just selling/customized it for her

    *customs apps and soft:
    ~vibrate on touch (no other xperia users have this!)
    ~Iphone Lock (as seen on the vid)
    ~HTC home style! (no other xperia user have this! very cool)
    ~custom sms conversation style! (the owner was bored to the factory style! look at the vid)
    ~custom panels (some are free and some are custom made)

    ~All the apps are backed up on the memory so if ever you need to reinstall it or you deleted the app unintentionally then you can reinstall it over again.
    ~there are also other apps in the memory like slide sound! very cool but the user just like it quiet so she doesn’t install this one instead just put it in the memory for future installation.
