I hope what I've been reading today is true!!

One news site said:

Sony Ericsson partner Handango is the one to let the news (deliberately) slip as it seeks (attention) third party content for the super smartphone by categorically stating "The Xperia X1 will launch in mid-September 2008 with the Handango InHand service on the device."

Looks very similar to the HTC Kaiser - albeit a different OS.

I love my Kaiser - though to be honest the keyboard is a gimmick! I never really use it at all!

Also - the HSDPA modem doesnt seem to be as fast as the Kaiser! (Which is 3.6Mb)

but its only got a 3.2MP camera!

LOL

I wish somebody did a phone that was tiny. A phone to talk and text and thats it.

Sony Ericsson cameras are great. They easily out-perform a camera of higher spec, usually sue to features like auto-focus.

There are rumours that HTC have had a hand in making this. No one was quite sure how else SE could pull something like this out of the bag...

TBH, Motorola haven't even gotten the interface on that one right! No wonder their global market share is falling.

Not what I meant, that's just a cheap phone.

If they can pack all the features into a slimish phone think what they could do if they left them out.

I'll be looking forward to this!

I know its rubbish pic but think of my vision!

Now hold you phone like a playstation controller and think of the numbers on the top end of the phone like the L and R buttons. See feels good and you could have a nice slim small phone to take out of an evening.

Well you'll prob think Im mad but I think its a missed market.

Never seen any? The closest thing I have seen was the P 300 calculator phone which I did have for a while.

duck magic... i am upgrading in NOV so hope this will be out by then SE has a habit of pushing dates back...

will check out the competition at the time first!

(i'm using my p800!! at the mo, the touchscreen on my p910i died a month ago...)

imranmaz;2039376

check this out..... … check this out..... wow!http://www.newlaunches.com/archives/xun_chi_138_the_worlds_smallest_phone.phphttp://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/55518/nec-shows-worlds-smallest-mobile-phone.html#



The first looks like a toy. You would never get it out in the pub.

But yes more the idea.

i think the new ]htc touch diamond, looks proper lush, comes out in June

Not sure whether to wait to see the sim free price of that (happy at £450) or just go for something else now, or the SE G900 which according to play is out on 02/06/2008, for £299 sim free.

Me too, thats when i am due an Upgrade.

Hope its out, as it looks hella good.

Side note, its interesting htey are going for MicroSD support, instead of their own ones.
W800 had MS Pro Duo, and my K800 has M2.
Wonder why the change, as they always like their own media hmmmmm.

Maybe it's because Sony Ericsson didn't make it?

Ooh! That looks rather nice! My contract is up for renewal at the end of the month and was going to switch from T-Mobile (HTC Kaiser) to O2 (HTC Orbit 2). Might wait a little longer. This looks to have a nicer GUI than the Orbit 2 - though all three phones are basically the same thing.
