Featuring a very informative review and a whole host of images, the review is a must-read if you're one of the many awaiting the arrival of Sony Ericsson's first foray into the Windows Mobile market.
Taking into account the fact that Smape are obviously reviewing a device that will be a number of software-builds shy of release quality, they seem to come away might impressed! Sadly the reservations raised previously about the keyboard remain...
but...well... i'll let you read through for yourself to get the rest of their impressions! :et us know what you think!
What we didn’t really like about X1 was the main keyboard. The buttons feel loose and you can’t always feel if a button was pressed or not. We hope this will get fixed by the release day. The backlight is perfect though: bright enough to eliminate any possible inconvenience when you work in the dark. A brightly colored LED light works as the best reminder so you won’t ever miss a message. Talking in advance, we’d mention that Touch Pro still has a much better keyboard, which is the biggest advantage over the Swedish-Japanese competitor.
The curved slider still looks slick, a 3.5mm is great and that 800x480 screen DOES look glorious...
