Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 does a good job looking pretty at launch event

Chris Ziegler

It's one thing to see the X1 (or any phone, for that matter) all dolled up for perfect, clinical press shots, but it's quite another to see it doing its thing in the wild. The WinMo-based superphone is still many months away from release, but a few lucky individuals -- Sony Ericsson employees, that is -- had the opportunity to show it off at the company's Mobile World Congress press event this evening in Barcelona, and it's hard to argue that the thing is simply beautiful. Whether it's usable and feels as good in the hand as it looks in pictures is a question that we won't be able to fully answer until we have a retail unit sitting in front of us, but for now, we're about as optimistic as we could be.
