The lovely Zara Rabinowicz of Shiny Shiny fame spent a whole six weeks in the company of Sony Ericsson’s touchscreen QWERTY slider, the Xperia X1, to bring you and me the video verdict we’ve all been waiting for. And this is how it goes…
It’s actually a lot better than I thought it would be. The keyboard looks very usable and I know it’s not the most important feature but I really like those fish. The one thing that does make me suspicious is that touchscreen. The more I watch videos of touch phones the more I can see the difference between those where the tech works well and those where it doesn’t. There just looks like there’s a little too much difficultly when Zara moves her thumb across it.
My advice would be to make sure you get you hands on one before you decide to buy. Go down to the shops. The salesmen will be all too keen to put one in your mitts and start telling you how the Xperia really suits sophisticated people such as yourself.
