Sony Ericsson vs Apple: Can Xperia X1 Rival the iPhone?

The phone will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile's forthcoming 3G networks

Sony Ericsson unveiled at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona a Windows Mobile smartphone that uses a touch screen overlay to interact with the phone, making it a possible competitor to Apple's touch-activated iPhone. The phone will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile's forthcoming 3G networks.

The Xperia X1 will be available in North America in the second half of 2008, says Sony Ericsson's Suzanne Cross, head product marketing manager for Sony Ericsson North America.

The new phone blends entertainment and productivity features, she notes. But the high-res touch screen is what will interest Apple lovers most...and will perhaps woo away current iPhone users.
