And that would pretty much end the debate. Who wants a WM phone at the moment, even one from

@Chrizztian
What do you want a smartphone to do? Until Android Marketplace or Play Now gets some serious quantities of Apps, the iPhone 3Gs is the #1 phone at the moment. Neither the X2 nor the X10 is the ultimate in camera technology, see the Satio for that, and Aino is the only one that has PS3 Remote Play if that's of use to you.

Then again, how is the 3.5G reception where you are?

I guess my Question, was with of the OS, There, is the best and most interest.
I donít care about the camera, because I donít use it very much.

I was interested in try a WM cell, but now I have more interested in Android.

THX for the fast reply. And this great forum.

If u want to snap photos, buy a camera. I am oblivious about the pros and cons of WM vs Android. But the price of the phones will most likely be the deciding factor. That and which phone optimizes my MBW 150.

Well, X10 has better specs than X2.

The X10 has a future while Android continues to develop (and it has some fairly futureproof hardware to take advantage of those developments). The X2 will drop dead as soon as WM7 is released next year, since it's based on old hardware and a barely warmed-over interim OS.

I seriously wonder if the X2 is just a cynical attempt to make back some of the R&D cash SE blew on the X1 - since it's virtually the same phone.

Its really up to the users preference.

First-
Android or Wm, which do you prefer
Second-
Dimensions, is a 4.0 inch screen too big
Third-
The interface, which interface do you prefer, SE have customised the interface on both phones
Keyboard-
Virtual or real

I would choose- X2, IF they sort out some of the interface by covering up WM, reviewers have comented how the interface is really nice then suddenley ugly WM pops out from nowhere. The X2 has one of (or the) best WM intefaces around.

Well, even if I get the X2, I'll install TF3D on it, just like my X1. So the original X2 interface doesn't really make a difference to me. But is it confirmed X2 won't be able to support WM7?

Nobody's going to officially confirm or deny something like that at this stage, but it's massively unlikely, given that the X2 is still based on the creaking old Qualcomm MSM 7200 chipset (exactly the same as the X1, and HTC phones from a year earlier than that). Even snapdragon phones like the HD2 aren't confirmed to work with WM7, and there's a good chance they won't, but they're a lot more likely to be compatible than the X2.

For the vast majority of WM users, WM7 will mean a new phone. XDA Devs etc may be able to crowbar some of the features across to certain handsets, but this is a new OS being written for new devices to be released late next year, not an upgrade to 6.5.

X2 will be a mature device with some experience behind and optimisation.
With a good speed and perormance.

I wouldn't go crazy for those specs obsession.

It's usually made by guys who just get excited over numbers on paper and never really do much with devices

X10 is on Android - young, immature OS with many flaws.
WM still can do twice more than that.

Plus X2 offers good hardware control when X10 does not....

Choice should be made based on usability preferences.

i think X10.droid will be better than X2.winmo. Android have a lot more future than WinMo. Why do you people think that HTC HD2.WinMo, Microsoft dont want that HTC people do another HTC HD2 with WinMo??? ehh ehh?

1 you have to think about your opinion of Android having a lot more future; is this based on heresay or just looking at sales hype? What future in the mobile handset business makes you think it'll have major success in the future? Maybe as a computing alternative sure I'm not yet sold on mobile handsets - I need to read about real world use delights and functionality than the hype about how cool it is from sites like boygenius/engadget/gizmodo & the like that just repost their seemingly "paid" hype (the same feelings by their reporters was done with BlackBerry and to a lesser degree the iPhone early 2009).

I'm VERY curious about Peter Chou's statement above 'I have to take care of Windows Mobile'. Where on EARTH did that come from in his mind?! Is it due to contractual agreements with Microsoft or that he feels Windows Mobile's succes rely's on HTC as a device maker OR is it because he himself prefers Windows Mobile and wants it to succeed as he personally rely's on it and feels Android will wipe it off into oblivion? Things that make you go, Hmmm!

I personally feel that Android is just another WinCE OS in its ability to be ported to anything and competes with Microsoft's core imbedded OS strategy more than they think and it'll hurt them soon enough.

Buhahaha.
Funny.

Today WinMo abilities are unmatched on any OS,
ESPECIALLY compared to Apple or Android.

Android WILL develop of course,
but NOW WM kicks it's ass big time.

So X2 plus it's hardware (compared to no hardware ctrls on X10)
is the only choice for me. Personally.
