Looks sexy, but I'd be more inclined towards it if it were on Sprint or Verizon. ...or if T-Mobile offered 3G outside of the city ... or if AT&T figured out how to build (configure?) a decent network (that and my experience with cingular was less than pleasant).
I guess I'm going to wait and see what Google is cooking up. ... Would go with the Passion if it existed and was available.
What is the phone on the right at 2:01 into the video that they are comparing the X10 to?!? It looks like an HTC phone with a similar screen size. Buttons are different than what I've seen on the HD2....
Edit - Touch HD maybe....

I'd take the passion over it. I heard the x10 has a crappy keyboard and is not multitouch enabled. The only plus I see in the phone is it's media player. The rest of the ui seems a little boring. Plus you only get 3 homescreens if the passion exists and has sense it will have 7.
The problems that a lot of you are talking about are issues that have been/ will be worked out before release. Sony has problems with overhyping their products too early. So we see demos before the software is really ready to be demo'd. There are a couple videos on a sony site...that I can't find now, that showed a more up to date ui that was running much more smoothly.
However, I will second the issue with sony phones having some problems recently. If I had my choice, I'd get the HTC product.
As far as AT&T goes. I'm locked in with them because of a business plan that I have. I live in an area of upstate NY where I really haven't had issues with them, and contrary to popular opinion, we had all kinds of problems with verizon when we were with them. Therefore I'm probably not going to have much choice in this. I'm either going to have to go with the X10, the Hero coming to AT&T, or the rumored google phone. Unless there is a surprise and the Passion comes out for AT&T as well....that'd be nice.
I live in Salt Lake City. I, and everyone I know, regardless of phone brand, drops calls constantly on AT&T. What is weird about it, is that I often have 4 bars, and I am stationary, when the call gets dropped. If you live in a place with a solid AT&T network, and you don't travel, then the X10 maybe an option for you. I go camping a lot, and I would love 3G coverage when I'm away from the city, in addition to better voice quality and reliability.

The HTC Passion is largely believed to have launched as the Nexus One. However, just as the HTC Dream launched after the T-Mobile G1 (both being identical phones), we're keeping the HTC Passion on the list as an additional phone/brand until the... Read More
