SonyEricsson Xperia X1 goes for an outing in Knight Rider

If old-skool Knight Rider was about the Hoff and Kitt against the bad guys with Bonnie, Devon and a truck providing trackside support, this week’s upcoming season premiere is slightly different.

Michael, assisted by a Mustang GT500KR embodied Kitt, rolls into action with a battalion of dudes & dudettes in bunkers (including Billy from BSG) and a gazillion gadgets.  Leaving aside Kitt’s transformations into various forms, including the new Ford F150 twin cab, SonyEricsson’s forthcoming Xperia X1 makes a brief appearance.  No panels this time, just the biggest font SMS ever.  I’m pretty sure I also spotted Gateway’s One on someone’s desk sitting unbranded in it’s sleek and shiny black glory; I haven’t seen one of those anywhere since CES in January.

The pilot earlier this year hinted that Kitt would be able to transform into different shapes, growing a rear spoiler at the end of that airing.  This week’s season premiere goes a bit further and there will probably be some mixed opinions; we’re in way out fantasy land with this series.  Works for me…although jumping into the back of an F150 and ending up in the front seat of a Mustang is a big ask for any audience.

You can make up your mind on September 24th or grab it quick at NBC or Hulu.
