had the phone just over two weeks, and some minor niggles but nothing too major - it's a definite contender for the smart phone crown.

I waited for more than a month to get my hands on this bad-boy ... definitely worth it -cool keyboard, takes some getting used to but it's good, really good!

Sony Ericsson have finally come up with their own cheaper (and might I add, more sophisticated looking) version of the iPhone. The only minor downside is that the camera isn't as good as it could be..

This phone looks great and I love Sony Ericcson's but after a few weeks of using this phone every day, I only have one thing to say, it's disappointingly slow.

I was torn between this & HTC Touch Pro. I wasn't interested in the iPhone & I didn't want a Blackberry and to begin with I couldn't work it at all.

This is my first Windows based phone which I expect made it seem more complicated.

I've now finally got the hang of it & I love it.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Black details

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Black is a stand-out mobile communications device with a great touchscreen, which allows you choose from a dynamic range of activities anytime, anywhere.

Positively brimming with excellent and practical functions, the Sony Ericsson X1 Black employs a series of Xperia panels which can be arranged on its touchscreen as you prefer to make accessing features as easy as possible. There is also a standard keypad and 4-way key and optional joystick should you prefer a more conventional control method.

Running on Windows Mobile, users can access miniature versions of key Microsoft packages, such as Word and PowerPoint, so that working out the office becomes a breeze. A full Qwerty keyboard meanwhile makes composing e-mails and entering large amounts of text quick and easy.

A media player is installed for enjoying music and videos, which look terrific on the large screen. And downloading more content to enjoy is simple and fast thanks to the phone’s HSDPA connectivity.

Other features of this truly wonderful mobile phone include GPS for simple navigation around unfamiliar areas, polyphonic and MP3 ringtones, MMS messaging, games, an FM radio and a raft of organiser functions.

Owners can expect talk time of up to ten hours or up to 830 hours when the phone is in standby mode.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Black is the first in the X series of phones from Sony Ericsson and in keeping with a phone that has been beautifully styled its launch was closely tied to the London Design Festival.

Reviews of the phone have been universally positive, praising in particular the display which is currently the highest resolution available and enormous power that the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Black packs into its sleek shell.

Although not matching the sales of the iPhone Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Black, which is Sony Ericsson’s first-ever Windows Mobile 6-powered handset, this phone is easily its match.
