Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 launch date, confirmed!

Finally, the waiting is almost over. Inspired by the beauty of KF-2 ceramics plate, by late Finn artist Kaj Franck, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will arrive soon, at your nearest store. Sony Ericsson has confirmed the launch date for each countries (and region) for Xperia X1. For Russia, USA, and China, the launch date will be confirmed by local country’s officials.

The Xperia X1 is an extremely stylish handset encased in a real stainless steel body, with a striking arc-slider design, supported by a powerful multimedia ecosystem. The phone initially will be available in United Kingdom, Sweden, and Germany. Later, it will be distributed worldwide, across Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, South Africa, and South America throughout Q4 2008. Here are the list:


  • Indonesia, Singapore, Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam

Western Europe

  • Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal

Central Europe

  • Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic

Middle East

  • UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait


  • South Africa

Latin America

  • Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia

The official global launch of Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 will be held in Tent London, between September 18 – 21, during the occasion of London Fashion Week. Of course, Xperia is one of the fashion icon itself. To accompany the launching, Sony Ericsson also creates new movie campaign, entitled Johnny X. During three week period, one new episode of Johny X will be posted online every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, started on September 22.

Xperia X1 definitely a Sony Ericsson’s masterpiece, a bet of its future. If it were success, Sony Ericsson can have a more space in market share. In other hand, if not, maybe it is time for Sony Ericsson to say goodbye to 3rd place, even 4th place of global market share sales.


Rollforming Technology

Rollforming is a continuous bending operation in which a long strip of metal (typically coiled steel) is passed through consecutive sets of rolls, or stands, each performing only an incremental part of the bend, until the desired cross-section profile is obtained. Roll-forming is ideal for producing parts with long lengths or in large quantities (source: wikipedia)

Rollforming technology is serving the automotive, store fixture, office furniture, material handling, and building products industries, steel forming system is a great source for anything from simple steel channels to multipart weldments and fixtures. With capabilities that include roll forming, punching and piercing, robotic welding, and assembly services, components can be completely fabricated in-house, reducing costs while increasing supervision and quality.

Roll forming reduces costs by eliminating secondary operations when possible, streamlining the flow of production, and educating the workforce. This system limits man-hours, eliminates waste, reduces mistakes, and vastly improves quality.

Whether your company’s needs include services relating to product engineering, advanced shipping and logistics, or special finishing and packaging, steel forming system can help. Regardless of the industry; automotive, retail displays and fixtures, office furniture, building products, or if you just require a simple channel, rollforming technology can supply a better, value and faster.

There is so many leading company in rollforming in the world, it has significant experience in the production of roll forming equipment, steel and stainless steel for a great diversity of fabrication projects. That manufactures a wide range of rollformers for many industries, products and can meet the needs of any customer through customization and innovation

Top Ten Future Technology

This was a wish list that was originally intended to provide inspiration for inventors. First written in April of 1997, I thought it might be fun to follow-up each year and find out if anyone has been working on these ideas for future technology. I have included websites for you to “check out” inventions that are, are close to, or kinda close to what I am hoping will soon exist in the technology available to us presently.

1. Future Technology – Free Energy
I want my energy bill to come only once, not every month. So be it solar or electro-magnetic, please make it personal and portable with batteries that keep going and going.

2. Future Technology – Transporter
What kind of technology is required to scramble a person’s atoms and send them for regrouping in foreign lands all in the blink of an eye? Imagine, I could work in Tokyo and sleep in Paris. Beam me up.

3. Future Technology – Replicator Technology (Stuff for Free)
Every time I saw Captain Picard (Star Trek Next Generation) ordering his Earl Grey Tea or Councilor Troy getting a triple alien fudge dessert from one of those replicators on the Enterprise, it made me jealous. I imagine you could send the dirty dishes back to the void where they came from. BTW, a replicator is a device that uses transporter technology to dematerialize quantities of matter and then rematerialize that matter in another form.

4. Future Technology – Universal Communicator
Forget long distant bills and roaming charges (especially with me working in Tokyo and sleeping in Paris). I want a very small device that lets me talk and see anyone, anywhere and anytime. All for the price of the device and please throw in the ability for universal translation for a modest surcharge.

5. Future Technology – The Cure
For you name it.

6. Future Technology – Fountain of Youth
As a woman I consider this as a no-brainer desire for future technology. The “Fountain of Youth” was a legendary spring that renders anyone who drinks of its waters permanently young. What is the real future technology that will extend our lives and keep us looking youthful without surgery?

7. Future Technology – Protective Force Field
To shield me from the sticks and stones.

8. Future Technology – Flying Cars
I want a smooth ride all the way and I hope it’s a convertible.

9. Future Technology – The Battery Operated Butler Did It
What can I say – housework sucks.

10. Future Technology – The Time Machine
I have a few famous inventors I would love to meet in person and the idea of messing with the time-space continuum is exciting as well.

Indonesia was claimed as third of country that produced carbon dioxide (CO2)

One of statement form NGO that claim Indonesia in not only as one of a corrupt country but also Indonesia has produced carbon (CO2) emission as third rank in the world. Oh .. .my country, we should develop a better living and reject all claim form other NGO statement to become a clean country. Go .. my Indonesia!

Indonesia rejected the accusation of NGO Wetland International and Delft Hydraulics that in their research stated Indonesia was third of country that produced carbon dioxide (CO2) in the world after the United States and China.

The head of BPPT Said D. Jenie said the research that was carried out by the two non-governmental organizations was inaccurate and ignored many factors.

The factor influenced the fluctuation in annual carbon emissions. In fact, the climate factor was very dominant in determining the incident that happened in Indonesia, like the problem of firing forest, He said. According to him, Indonesia in fact precisely became the absorber CO2 that was dismissed by developed countries. That was caused because of the number of forests in Indonesia relative bigger if compared with other countries.

The other factor was the Indonesian ocean also was occupied by millions of planktons that could effective absorbed CO2,” said Said. Because of that he insists to have the standardization of counting emissions CO2 that was produced by each country. As far as this, counting of carbon emissions was in each country carried out by the NGO.
