Sony XPERIA X1 unboxed on video

The XPERIA X1 [Portal page] which Kornel got to play with several months ago is getting more attention as of late. Below is a video of the XPERIA X1 getting unboxed and in addition to a size comparison to the HTC Touch Pro, there is also a short bit of UI action. The packaging looked pretty simple, but good enough. A smartphone like the X1 may seem a bit out of place here, but we have been hoping that the Windows Mobile shell that Sony designed would help the X1 function more like a full-internet-experience MID than a Windows Mobile smartphone.

Though after seeing the video I can’t say it is too promising at this point… the switch from portrait to landscape/keyboard mode is transitionless but still manages to take a noticeable amount of time to switch between the two. The panels interface looks nice, but again, when the panels reorganize themselves when moving from portrait to landscape, there is a noticeable section of lag before they find their new positions.
