Following Sony Ericsson's announcement from last week to finally launch the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 later this month, thanks to O2 Germany - which confirmed the upcoming launch as well - last weekend I got my hands on an Xperia X1 as well. And while the device was still based on the pre-production hardware, the Windows Mobile ROM built was way newer, actually it was from early September and I was told that, even if not the release candidate, this Beta comes pretty close to what the final software should look. First of all, the ROM is way faster than everything I've seen on an X1 before. Switching between portrait and landscape mode just seems to take milliseconds only and also the panels start much faster than before.

Also this is the first built which officially features Opera Mobile 9.5 which Sony Ericsson just decided in last minute to add to the Xperia X1.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask in the comments bellow. Also don't miss Sony Ericsson's upcoming webcast which the company will hold today and where you will also be able to ask questions. Maybe, the video above is just a good preparation for the webcast.
