Image Gallery: First thoughts on the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1a

Summary: The news of Sony Ericsson's entry into the Windows Mobile space was talked about quite a bit at Mobile World Congress 2008. Almost a year later this high end device is now available for purchase at a premium price. There are a couple unique features of the XPERIA, but you will have to be a serious Windows Mobile fan to pay the $800 selling price for such a solid product.

  • The keys are slightly angled and are well spaced between each other for easier text entry. The keys have a small bit of travel and could have been a bit deeper.

  • There are some other design elements in the center of the keyboard that add a bit of character to the device.
