Now isn’t this interesting. This video from coolsmartphone show how the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 GUI is ported over to the HTC Touch HD and the guys behind the video are the ones from http://www.xda-developers.com.
Gee, I’m loving it already, the GUI sure looks hot on Touch HD’s big screen.
One side note, the import version of the HTC Touch HD is around HK$6,200 (US$795) down at Sincere Podium.

This from jkOnTheRun, “The Register is reporting from Berlin that a Sony Ericsson representative is saying that the X1 will debut in January of next year and that Windows Mobile 6.1 is the reason it’s not shipping now.
“Windows 6.1 isn’t functioning properly on the Xperia X1,” he admitted.”
Now this is some bad news to those who are closely following on the phone and anxiously waiting on its release. Stay tuned, will keep you all updated on the situation.

As seen on eBay, the going price now for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is US$950+US$60 (for shipping) for what I guess a prototype, or just a scam especially when the item is located somewhere in South Africa. 27 bids? what are those guys thinking really.

Apparently, the guys over at HTC is aware of the battery leak and is working on a ROM to tackle that problem, that according to MobilitySite. Gee am I happy to be able to get an extra battery from pre-registering with CLS 1010 here in town for the Chinese version.
Will update more once the ROM release.
