HTC turns another iPhone into an iPod touch

I don’t know what it is about HTC-built smartphones, but they keep commanding me to cripple my iPhones by giving their SIMs to another device, thus becoming WiFi-only glorified iPod touches. First it was the AT&T Tilt (HTC TyTN II), which drew me away from the first-gen iPhone last December.


And now it’s the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 (made by HTC), almost exactly one year later, officially taking over the position my iPhone 3G has held since July.

HTC is literally my iPhone killer.

Stay tuned for a completely self-indulgent X1 unboxing. [Update: Here we go!]
