BGR reviews the Xperia X1

Although we may have had the first hands-on review with the Xperia X1 here at WMExperts, the truth of it is we only had an hour or so with the device. Boy Genius, however, he's had it for a few days now and has posted his thoughts.


  • The 800x480 screen is awesome
  • There's four (4), count them, FOUR different notification lights
  • Browsing is snappy over WiFi or 3G
  • The keyboard, not so hot
  • The optical joystick is good stuff.

I'm not a slider-man myself, but I still want one nonetheless. You?

  • I am not a slider person either. I just gave back a Mogul with 6.1(hada test rom) that I used for a week.
    I prefer a front fixed keyboard like my Treo 700wx or no keyboard like the Touch from Sprint.
  • i am big big fan of pda with sliding qwerty keyboard because i am deaf. it is a must for every deaf person to type to communicate. we wud go crazy if there will be no sliders. i dont like on touch screen keyboard because my thumbs are fat. sony xperia x1 looks so good but i would consider to get that if at&t will provide that. i have at&t tilt. it rocks !
