everything with Windows on it, will always be a con to any product out there!

Senbo3596d ago

until i tried the x1 yesterday no porbs that can't be fixed try it or give 6.1 a second run it's not that bad especially when it has touch flow 3D or any type of skin over the win 6.1 BS

i have 2 new mobiles a year, and usually end up liking the windows mobile and blackberry.

windows allows me to do anything on it which i liove and it works,.
my iphone got hated on after a year becuase it just couldnt keep up with me on my business terms.
symbians were ok, but lacked features

im sorry bro but i stick to windows (this is coming from a business user im sure iphone would of takken my grasp if i didnt do anything with business on it, and i don thave the time to unlock and all that jargon

there are 2 amazing qwerty keyboard phones on the market.

one is HTC touc pro with the amazing touchflo 3d (youtube it its awesome)

or this new xperia (it has a 9 panel interface which can simply allow you to put 9 different phones interface on it.

its crazy, eg, you can have nokia n95 interface menu, omnia menu, touchflo3d interface , its great check them out properly in the shops if yo can

HardcoreGamer3595d ago

morganfell3595d ago

Just tell me when it is coming to the US and who the service providers are.

Doppy3595d ago

I know I've been waiting for this phone for a while now, when is it coming, who gets it, and how much?

Sony Ericsson Officially Announces US XPERIA X1 Launch - November 28 http://news.prnewswire.com/...

XPERIA X1 to Arrive at Best Buy December 7 http://www.boygeniusreport....

biggest problem people see with it is that it's not on a service providers ((yet) rumor: AT&T will pick it up after they sell some fuze) and costs 800usd unlocked. i see this as a good thing, less people will have my phone.

btw i played with it on the 16th and the panels aren't that grate but with touch flow 3d on it....it rocks! seems you can set it to a panel now to

Too little, too late. I'll be importing the HTC Touch HD from Europe, thanks.

Senbo3595d ago (Edited 3595d ago )

excellent choice if you don't need/want a keyboard
unfortunately you can't get 3g coverage in the U.S. with touch HD. http://www.htc.com/www/prod...
HSDPA/WCDMA:

*Europe/Asia: 900/2100 MHz
* Up to 2 Mbps up-link and 7.2 Mbps down-link speeds

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE:

*Europe/Asia: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

there is still hope HTC promised the US a phone of the same caliber and lately they did the diamond then they released the pro which is the same thing as the diamond plus keyboard. so we mite see an HD pro in the U.S.

HardcoreGamer3595d ago

yeh the htc touch is great too as its bigger screen and is like the iphone, but i was a bit early and bought the other, will get hd later
