News is emerging that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will be delayed until the end of year or even 1Q 2009. Is this news or is this expected? Was Sony Ericsson just messing with us by telling us supposed release dates?

Sony Ericsson are claiming they are having trouble with integrating the Windows Mobile 6.1 OS into the Xperia X1 handset with it crashing and killing some devices, hey what else is new? It runs on Windows!!Read More »Xperia X1 Delayed? – What’s New?

Michell Bak over at the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog has posted an in depth review of the Sony Ericsson W890, the upgrade to the old W880 this model has one thing for sure; it has sex appeal in abundance!

Initially listing the advantages and disadvantages of the handset, Michell goes through comparing it with the W880 and W890, he also looks at all the other functions of the handset including the Camera, Music and Call Management. You can head on over to the full review and leave a comment, be warned it has LOTS of pictures so 56k (who is on that nowadays anyway?) it might take a while to load.Read More »Sony Ericsson W890

WOW Sony Ericsson Xperia X1, Nokia What?

There were many things I was looking forward to being revealed in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress 2008. Nokia’s UI was one of the things that had me excited, also to see which new devices they would be revealing, which they did. The 6210 Navigator and the N78 at which Zach at SiMo seems to be very happy with and so he should be, finally Nokia have done something right for the NAM market. Myself personally, I couldn’t give a (insert expletive here)! Yes they give the NAM market a reason to love Nokia and will probably give them a way into the US market as evidently it has been a pretty poor show on their part.

The N96 and 6220 classic were also announced and yet still I’m not the slightest bit excited, so there seems to be only one thing left that could get me excited, Nokia S60 Touch UI! Wow!, Well it should have been, except it kinda blows, why? Two main reasons:

  1. What’s New? Apart from it being a “touch” OS there has been nothing added nor is there any WOW factor in the UI to get excited about. Yes it keeps in with the S60 OS and users will be familiar with the interface and menus, but where is the WOW factor!?
  2. Where is an actual working model? Even a prototype model running the Touch UI would have gotten a better response and anticipation, seeing is believing, see the Google Android Demo here, working on an actual device!
