take google search, and you will find a lot of sites, they are telling the x1 has got a accelerometer.
nobody knows exactly, what x1 can do. but i saw a video on youtube, with all time opened keyboard, and if the presentor rotating screen, the x1`s desktop will rotate immediatly. fake?

You can hotkey one of the buttons to rotate the screen, most likely this is what they were doing.

Seriously? The phone has been out for a month now and has been reviewed in its final hardware spec for almost 2 months. Everyone should know what the X1 can do. If you don't then you aren't even looking.

"Inside the device, the Xperia X1 features an accelerometer which switches screen modes depending on its physical orentation. "

And yet... it DOESNT have it.
You have the device... go on to the settings and look up the settings for it... wait, you can't. Cos it's NOT there.

Just map one of the two buttons to Screen Rotate. Problem solved.

Yup they stated it doesn't. However one little minor thing to note - when the N95 came out Nokia never admitted that it had an accelerometer. I don't know if they said it never had one (they may have done) but then some cunning developers found that it did and eventually (several firmware updates later) Nokia enabled it.

Given this and that the hardware is almost identical to the Diamond/Touch HD I wouldn't rule out the possibility that it may be on there but not enabled.....
