Sony Ericsson-XPERIA X1
Despite having one the lowest market share among smartphone models with a cumbersome OS that has seen various iterations since 2004 and on a steady decline year on year, Windows has now come up with another new update to its Windows Mobile 6.5. This time, with a dot-dot iteration, the WinMo 6.5.3 carries the features it should have had when it first came out. But, as they say, better late than never.
You now have Sony Ericsson announcing to the world that it has the first smartphone to use the WinMo 6.5.3. Consistent with its multi-platform strategy that started with its first Windows handset in the overpriced but underwhelming XPERIA X1, the new Sony Ericsson Aspen carries the same promise of a business smartphone but with less stellar attributes its precursor had. There’s no large widescreen display and no full-QWERTY slider.
It’s just your QWERTY monoblock candybar design. It’s interesting to note that this model initially had the appropriate moniker Sony Ericsson Faith. It’s probably asking its customers to have more faith in the WinMo platform than it really deserves.
Competitive Features at a Glance
The new Aspen is also the latest handset in Sony’s GreenHeart stable of eco-friendly handsets made from recycled materials. On the hardware front, this is your basic quad band GSM (850/900/1800/1900) on 2G and a dual band UMTS (900/2100) on 3G with HSDPA/HSUPA for high speed internet access.
It is housed on a QWERTY candybar measuring 117 x 60 x 12.5mm with a weight of 130g making it better suited on a holster than in your pocket. It has a smallish 2.4-inch resistive touchscreen display with a mere QVGA resolution and the usual WinMo-limited 65k color support.
