Sony XPERIA X1 unboxed on video

Posted on 14 October 2008, Last updated on 11 November 2019 by

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.

    Off Topic,

    but I’m excited!

    Toshiba has new UK/EU NB100 up on it’s site.

    No price yet, but it sounds good.

    I’m shocked that they released that product with those delays in the UI. Makes it seem like a possibly incomplete product that was rushed to an extent before the hardware could catch up.

    People moaned with the iphone 3G and it’s slight lagginess in the interface and new delays, but this one looked horrendous in the vid. Those pauses aren’t major, but they will add up throught the day and cause irritation.

    HTC touch pro, Xpress5800 and Blackberry Touch (along with iphone) are making this quite a crowded segment where they can’t necessarily get away with this. Pity since I had such high hopes for the Xperia.

    Hopefully time will tell if this video is illustrative of the device when I get my paws on it.

    p.s. it is most likely that the stand-out feature of this, the massively high res screen is simply too much. Either that or the user had too much running at once.
