Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 is the manufacturer's second WM smartphone
What a day it is! Nokia has officially announced the N97 mini and the first Xseries models – the X6 and the X3, HTC revealed the Touch2, and now Sony Ericsson makes a move by announcing its second Windows Mobile smartphone, the XPERIA X2. It would be among the most technologically-advanced smartphones using Microsoft’s operating system. This becomes clear after a quick glance at its specifications – a 3.2-inch WVGA display, full QWERTY keyboard, 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus and photo flash, Wi-Fi with DLNA, A-GPS, TV-out, Bluetooth and a microSD slot (supports up to 16GB cards).

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 is a Windows Mobile 6.5-based smartphone and as it was with the X1, its interface is personalized with Panels, which change the homescreen layout. It will come with 14 panels straight out of the box, but additional 16 will be available for download. Today, Sony Ericsson also announced its Panel SDK, which should allow the developers to easily create new panels. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 also packs a new feature called SlideView. It is said to give you a quick access to all missed events – calls, e-mails and messages.

We are happy that the X2 will be available in a couple of versions – one suitable for Europe/Asia and one for America. It is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of the year, but unfortunately, there is no information on the exact pricing as of now. We are eager to get our hands on the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2, what about you?

I actually cried when i read the X2 is cmng out soon- i really wept for long, i know they are gonna price it high and is destined to fail just like earlier times, how i wish they price it sensibly- it will sell like Crazy & beat the Shit out of others, I am just dreaming, it's never gonna happen. And because of their high prices Sony Eric is not going to be around for long, it's so sad...) Deepak, Bangalore

Looks good, I wonder why the display is only 65k colors? should be at least 256k.

It will only have 65k colors becuase the current bit-rate of the WM Platform only allows 65k.... which I agree needs to be correct ASAP with the WM platform and have addressed it several times at the WM Connection site with microsoft employees.

Nice phone but 3.2 inch and no larger internal memory.....??? I might just end up going for the samsung pro instead of this.

OMG Sony Errison X2 sure look sure looks like the iPhone to me and after having my 3GS it looks like every other phone maker is a fail atm except Nokia with it's N900. Anyway X1 was overpriced for a long time and thank god I didn't buy the X1 because it was like more than 25% off atm.
