Almost Hands-On with the XPERIA X1
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.

I think the protective acrylic at the Microsoft booth is to protect the device from Microsoft employees, judging from their performance at CES...
You can check this if you test the video performance of the Toshiba G900 (that is thechnically similar to the Xperia)
I mean Qvga screens at 320 x 240 = 76,800 pixels and Xperia Wvga at 800 x 480 = 364,000 pixels to be refreshed.
Conclusion if you want to have the same graphics performance than a Qvga Smartphone, you will need a 5X faster Graphic processor/bus...
Xperia is not a sony but an HTC.
HTC is having problems with the graphic processors lately..
(Like the TYTN II lack of graphics drivers)
