Sony Ericsson just released an update of it's Xperia X1 white paper and unveils some interesting facts. For instance, Sony Ericsson will release two different Xperia X1 version, the X1a and the X1i which both features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE but differentiates in supported UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA bands. The X1a is going to support triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz while the X1i is going to support UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/1900/2100 MHz. However, both versions will feature HSDPA downloads up to 7.2 Mbps and and HSUPA uploads up to 2.0 Mbps. Nevertheless, another major difference is the video recording resolution.

While the Xperia X1a will record videos in QVGA with 24 fps only, the Xperia X1i is recoding videos in VGA with 30 fps and this is because Qualcomm's patent dispute with Broadcomm which forbids Qualcomm to offer devices in the U.S. with VGA video recording capabilities. This means that the X1a will be Sony Ericsson's North American Xperia version while the X1i is expected to be released in the rest of the world.

Other Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 features:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • Quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
  • Triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (X1a 850/1900/2100 MHz) (X1i 900/1900/2100 MHz) with HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps and HSUPA up to 2 Mbps with concurrent HSDPA at 3.6 Mbps and HSUPA at 2 Mbps
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
  • Integrated WiFi b/g
  • A-GPS
  • FM radio
  • 3" WVGA (800 x 480) TFT 65K color LCD
  • 3.2 megapixel main camera with touch autofocus/QCIF video telephony camera
  • 256 MB RAM/512 MB ROM
  • Supports microSD High Capacity memory cards
  • Xperia panel concept

A release date is still not confirmed but a release is in the early 2nd half of 2008 is most likely.

Will the X1i still be available in North America? Would we have a choice of choosing the one we want?

No, not through the official channels. Sure you are (hopefully?) free to import one from, let's say, the U.K.but in the U.S., according to our information, the X1a is the only device you will get.
And as Sony Ericsson said during Möbius 2 weeks ago, you will be able to get the Xperia X1 through the Sony Ericsson online shop but again, I expect it will be the X1a "only".
