Sony Ericsson announces iPhone fighter

Last week Sony Ericsson launched the XPERIA™ X1, an arc slider phone designed to "address the growing need for a premium, converged mobile experience." It combines a 3-inch clear and wide VGA display and a full QWERTY keyboard within a metal-finish body. Using Windows Mobile, the XPERIA™ X1 lets you choose from a range of activities anytime and anywhere; from enjoying entertainment to working on-the-move. You can access a world of experiences simply by touching the XPERIA™ panel on the screen.

“XPERIA™ represents the first brand that is truly borne from within Sony Ericsson. It represents our vision for a premium, energised communication experience,” said Dee Dutta, head of Mmrketing.

“Our vision for the XPERIA™ X1 is to deliver a seamless blend of mobile Web communication and multimedia entertainment within a distinctive design,” said Rikko Sakaguchi, head of portfolio and propositions.

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.

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.

With Windows Mobile, the highest data transfer rate (HSDPA/HSUPA) and WiFi support, you can enjoy your favorite entertainment and work efficiently on the move. Mobile access to everything that is important to you. A GPS gives you the freedom to explore the world.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ X1 will be available in the second half of 2008. Price has not been announced.
