Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 - Windows Mobile and QWERTY keyboard

Posted on Sunday, February 10 2008 @ 23:13:50 CET by

Sony Ericsson unveiled a new brand called Xperia. The first product in the Xperia lineup is the Xperia X1 which features an arc-sliding QWERTY keyboard, a metallic body and a large 3" display with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution.

This is one of Sony Ericsson's first phones with Windows Mobile and it looks like a very worthy iPhone rival. The Xperia X1 features a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and photo light, Bluetooth stereo (A2DP), aGPS, USB support, WiFi, FM radio, microSD memory card support, 400MB internal memory, ...

The Xperia X1 features four input methods: the touch screen, arc-sliding QWERTY keyboard, 4-way key and optical joystick. The phone should be available in the second half of 2008.

XPERIA panel interface – experiences just the way you want them
Enjoy access to different experiences – Web, multimedia, applications – from your desktop. Navigate with the tip of your finger. Configure and have your XPERIA™ panels just the way you want them.

Multiple navigation – the choice is yours
XPERIA X1 lets you interact with your phone in different ways. Touch, full QWERTY keyboard, 4-way key and optical joystick navigation. Switch seamlessly between operation modes.

Arc slider design – makes it stand out
The arc design gives a distinct and unique feel. Slide the screen upwards to reveal the wide pitch QWERTY keyboard. Ample distance between keys makes writing fast and easy.
