Playing the Microsoft game Solitaire on Windows Mobile 6 Standard (included on all WM phones), I just found out that you don’t have to move each card from the lower (tableau) piles to the aces piles (the four foundations) by yourself. If you press up on the D-pad when there are cards that may be moved there, they’re automatically moved to the foundations piles. Quite a timesaver if you’re hooked on playing Solitaires, and haven’t already found this out…

Here’s also a video of the X1, a quite Sony Bravia-like ad. It could be a wise move to use synergy effects from the Bravia brand for the Xperia multimedia brand.
