    Lenovo X1 Appears In All Its Swanky Glory On A Lenovo Notebook Comparison Chart

    Let’s just say it: The Lenovo X1 is real, m’kay? It’s not even a leak anymore. A full-fledge stream of info has been pouring out of Lenovo about the upcoming notebook. Last week it was an X1 ad spot on the official Lenovo YouTube channel and now the notebook appeared — along with most of its stats — on a Lenovo notebook comparison screen. The damn thing is even… Read More

  • Oris Big Crown X1 Calculator Watch

    Usually Oris “Big Crown” watches are rather retro. This one isn’t as retro visually and feels like something a helicopter pilot would have worn during the Vietnam era, or even today. Though none of that is what the watch is based on – at least through name. Oris opted to dedicate this new watch to the famous Bell X-1 range of planes that were designed and flown simply to… Read More

    [x+1] Raises $10 Million From Intel Capital For Online Targeting Platform

    The impossibly named [x+1], which specializes in online targeting technology, has raised $10 million in a Series B round led by Intel Capital. Existing investors Advanced Technology Ventures, Blue Chip Venture Company and Hudson Venture Partners also participated. The additional capital will serve to promote adoption of the startup’s media software services and to expand its… Read More

    Hands-on with the new Leica line: Sexytime


    Say what you want about Leica but they make some beautiful glass and some great cameras. Today I saw the 18-megapixel M9 (New Yorkers take note: Leica will have loaner units at the New York Photo Festival), the 12-megapixel X1, and the brand new V-LUX 20. I didn’t get a chance to shoot much but from what I saw the manual controls on the X1 are excellent and its designed primarily as… Read More

    Leica comes clean, announces the M9 and X1

    Finally. It seems like there have been a dozen leaks about the Leica M9 and X1 the last couple of weeks, but they are finally announced. It’s too bad that the leaks killed all the fun and announced everything already though. The new M9, which should be available this week, features a very similar body as the M8, but now rocks a 18MP full frame CCD sensor along new button placement for… Read More

  • The Leica M9 leaks out early which is probably for the best

    Leica has a big event scheduled for this Wednesday where the M9 was likely going to be announced. But it just so happens that Apple also has a presser booked for the same day, along with a bunch of companies at the audio video expo, CEDIA. So it’s probably best for Leica that a Photography Bay tipster sent the site an official-looking brochure that lists all the specs of unannounced M9. Read More

    The retrotastic Leica M9 and X1 get pictured, specs found


    mmhmmm. Leica’s got our number. That’s for sure. We love ourselves some retro rangefinders and it looks like the next two Leica digicams will follow that style. These pics came from two Flickr pages that were eventually pulled. If the specs listed turn out to be correct, a lot of shutterbugs are going to max out their credit cards on day one. We’ll probably find out… Read More

  • XPeria X1: "The ultimate Windows Mobile phone anyone can ask for…"

    Head over to MobiltyToday as they examine, in gory detail, what they’re calling “The ultimate Windows Mobile phone anyone can ask for… ” My only question is this: what if I never asked for a WinMo phone from Sony Ericsson? What if I asked for the charm and power of a UIQ-powered P800, my first and favorite smartphone? What if asked for a logical addition to the S-E… Read More

    Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to hit U.S. shelves on Black Friday for.. wait, how much?!

    At long last, Sony Ericsson has announced U.S availability of the Xperia X1. Because it’s definitely the best day to send people to the mall, they’ll be launching the handset on Black Friday (November 28th). With a Black Friday launch date, at least it’ll come in at a bargain price, right? Try $800 bucks. As of right now, the X1 is only planned to be up for sale as an… Read More

    Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to Best Buy on December 7th for $799, unlocked?

    It’s been a long time coming, but it looks like the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 might almost be here. BGR has some shots of Best Buy’s internal stock showing a December 7th in-stock date and an unlocked selling price of $799. That’s a lot of coin, so we can only assume that it’ll be the greatest phone in the history of cellular telephony, right? Read More

    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… 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… Read More

    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… Read More

    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… 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… 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… 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… 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… Read More

    If you’ve got almost a thousand bucks burning a hole in your pocket and you want to get a head start on ordering up that Xperia X1 by Sony Ericsson, why not head over to CellHut.com and pre-order one? Rumors are also beginning to swirl about a mid-September launch. What a great way to make friends at your new school! It’s going for $999 with an initial $100 off and the phone is… Read More

    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… Read More
