    Sony Ericsson XPERIA concept: Oh man, please don't be real.

    Just a few days ago, the above shot of a supposed XPERIA concept device started floating around. Though its authenticity can’t be confirmed, we certainly hope it’s fake – or, at most, a concept never intended to leave the labs. Besides being a damned nice looking piece of hardware, much of the XPERIA X1‘s appeal stems from its full, landscape QWERTY keyboard. In this… Read More

    Unboxing: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 stripped of its cardboard coverings

    Now that the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 has stormed European shores, eager owners are rushing to share the unboxing process with the rest of the world. The best we’ve spotted so far is that of Sweden’s Fosfor magazine – for the most part, the rest of them have been “Here’s the box.. HERE’S THE PHONE!”, skipping the oh-so-crucial step-by-step undressing. Just… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will be able to unlock the new SAAB

    Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will be able to unlock the new SAAB

    Embracing a concept found in just about every spy movie ever made, Sony Ericsson and SAAB have announced that the Xperia X1 will be able to communicate with the SAAB 9-X Air concept car, controlling some of the basic functionality (Read: No, you can’t drive with it.) Directly from the handset’s panel system, 9X-AIR/X1 owners will be able to: Lock/Unlock the doors Control interior… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

    Sony Ericsson: Xperia brand "not tied" to Windows Mobile

    Anytime there is discussion about Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1, you can almost guarantee that someone will chime in with “Yeah, too bad it’s running Windows Mobile.” While there isn’t much hope at this point for anyone dying for an X1 powered by anything but Microsoft’s platform, that might not be the case for future Xperia handsets. According to Magnus Andersson… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson will do anything to sell the Xperia X1

    Sony Ericsson will do anything to sell the Xperia X1

    In fact, they’ll even create a viral campaign based on a square-jawed man who can’t seem to remember where and who he is. I’m not quite sure what this has to do with a high-end phone that will probably spell the end of Sony Ericsson as a respected manufacturer of mid-range smartphones, but who are we to judge the instincts of highly paid marketing professionals tasked with… Read More

  • Say It Ain’t So: XPERIA X1 keyboard is a ‘major flaw’

    Say It Ain’t So: XPERIA X1 keyboard is a ‘major flaw’

    Oh, that’s unfortunate. I’ve been eyeing this device since it was announced and have always thought the keyboard looked phenomenal. BGR is reporting, however, that the keyboard on the XPERIA X1 device is a “major flaw” – that’d definitely be a deal-breaker for more than a few people, myself included. Not to say that this keyboard is absolutely terrible, but… Read More

    BengalBoy is back with the SEX1

    WARNING: Do not ingest self-tanner. I haven’t seen a BengalBoy post in almost a year and for a minute I had all but forgotten about our soft-core brother from another Best Buy who gets brand new, unreleased phones and then makes strange women hold them in bikinis. Lucky for us, BB got himself the Sony Ericsson X1, the phone we call “Lipstick on a Pig” for it’s melding of… Read More

  • Sony video leaks Xperia-branded phones?

    This video has been making the rounds that shows something similar to the S-E X1 along with another unnamed device that seems to be able to all sorts of good things including live chat a la iChat. While I’m down on the Xperia line so far — the X1 was a gimmick as egregious as the original HTC Touch — I’m willing to give S-E the benefit of the doubt and hope to god they… Read More

  • Xperia X1 to run Windows Mobile 6.1, me to cry

    Xperia X1 to run Windows Mobile 6.1, me to cry

    The charming, polished S-E X1 runs Windows Mobile 6.1, which is like saying that hot, 6-foot-3 model you know is a furry — and not the fun kind of furry but she wears a ratty old Tweety Bird costume with her ugly, loud boyfriend who dresses up like Sylvester and they have sex. And you’re all like “What? She can do better than that. Hell, I’ll dress up. Just not in something… Read More
