"The hardware is impeccable, the panels are both fascinating and useful, and of course there's no carrier bloatware! Though other phones offer many of the same features, somehow the Xperia X1 has that special sauce where the whole is greater than just the sum of its features. It's fun, it's cool and it offers very good entertainment possibilities while also being a very good business device thanks to Windows Mobile, the hardware keyboard and push email. The Xperia is perfect for power users and those who like something new and different (courtesy of panels), and it's priced at the high end where mostly power users tread. If you're just looking for an affordable Windows Mobile touch screen phone with a single user interface, the Xperia isn't for you."
