Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 'irons out its problems'

Those looking to recycle mobile phones in favour of the latest contracts may be interested in a new review of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1.

Michael Oryl notes in a recent piece for Mobile Burn that although some early prototypes of the device did have problems, the manufacturer appears to have rectified them.

He notes that overall the handset is impressive and "marks a number of firsts" for Sony Ericsson the handset represents - including the fact that it runs on a Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system.

Another innovation is the inclusion of a sideways sliding qwerty keyboard, which has also been seen on a number of other recent models - such as the T Mobile G1.

He adds the X1 is "a pretty solid feeling device that also looks quite good", although Mr Oryl concedes the size of the phone may put some people off.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 was unveiled by the company in February 2008.
