Panel interface

The home screen on the Xperia X1 supports up to nine different "panels" which can be switched between by the user, each offering different functionality. This allows users to select exactly which functionality they want on their homescreen, and switch easily. Extra panels can be downloaded from Sony Ericsson or third parties. Sony Ericsson released an SDK for developers which allows panels to be created using either C++ or HTML with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 SP1 or better.There is also a third party website which simplifies the process of creating an HTML panel, as it is quite a complex task with Visual Studio.
