Everybody hates Xperia
When I first got Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 it was running on Android Donut (1.6), my frustrations followed soon after mostly because it was greatly lagging with release of Android 2.1. Finally official 2.1 was released, but troubles didn’t stop there, because everybody was waiting for multi-touch support … I could go on like this for a very long time. However, to sum it up Sony has no plans of updating X10 anymore, they are releasing brand new phone (Arc) and they are hoping people will pay money to get it after X10 horrors. Even tho 2.1 isn’t that old, (31.4% of overall Android users is using it on it), Sony changed its UI to make it look better, but all they actually did is make it look pretty bad + made it abnormally slow.

This is also my story with X300.
I have 4 notebooks at the moment, two are Toshiba other two are Thinkpads. I dreamed about X300, it just amazed me, and after I got it, paid loads of cash for it (I paid in cash) ~2400 euros, after I rejected the fact that I’ll get Windows with it, since I’m basically “pushing” towards Debian development, otherwise the “original” cost would be ~2500 euros.
I order it Genelec (official dealer), wait for it for less than 2 weeks, got it, paid full price in cash.
Now I get my X300, I’m amazed and all, first I notice one weird thing, battery is not as it “noted” everywhere else, every week it’s losing 5 minutes of its battery life, in the end I get with something as 2:45-40, please do take the fact that I compile my own kernel and that I optimize it to the maximum, but … that’s the story.
Tried many methods, “blank it” out to … whatever it didn’t help, but I had idea of getting a new battery and in the meantime 128GB SSD came out, so it was in my future plans, some day. Anyways, pretty much everything was great and I was actually considering of switching to Thinkpad for good.
