While reports of an Xperia sequel were hot and heavy earlier this month with spy shots adding to the legitimacy of the reports, no official word of an X2 has been made. The X1 is known for having the unique panels centered interface that runs on a 3 inch display of 480 x 800 pixels. A side sliding QWERTY allows for physical text input. Other features include a 3.2MP camera with AF and flash, FM radio,  Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity.
