The XPERIA X1 got some facetime during the Windows Mobile portion of today's keynote, and our impression was that the “tiles” were a lot slower than we'd been hoping for. We'll give the Sony booth a shot, but given how they've been reticent to let people lay hands on this sucker since the Mobile World Congress, our hopes are not high.

Everything else, though, still looks awfully sweet. So sweet, in fact, that the folks over at the Microsoft booth saw fit to encase the thing a tube of protective acrylic. So best we can give you real live shots showing a real live device, under glass.
