Is the X1 a P990?

The best thing from MWC 2008 was Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1.

With an attractive user interface and hardware design, and build quality from HTC, it was sure to be a best seller before the end of the year, but now, perhaps, put back to 2009.

Unfortunately for SE someone forgot about the P990.

This handset was so late that many punters went to the competition.

Worse still, were the many bugs it launched with.

In the end, the P990 was in my opinion the most rounded business handset in the market.

Hopefully 2008 will not be remembered as another SE false dawn.
