Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 finally official, ships with WM 6.5 in early Q4 2009

Step aside, Nokia, because Sony Ericsson has a big announcement today, too: it’s the Xperia X2, now finally confirmed by the Swedish-Japanese company.

Appeared in leaked photos many times until now, the Xperia X2 is Sony Ericsson’s new flagship smartphone.

Like the HTC Touch2 (also announced today), SE Xperia X2 will come with Windows Mobile 6.5 on board – which means that it will have stuff like Microsoft Office Mobile, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and Internet Explorer Mobile.

The smartphone has a new SlideView feature, which offers “quick access to frequently used phone activities”.

Like the Xperia X1, X2 comes with Xperia panels – 14 are preloaded, and other 16 are available for download. The panels include Skype, Google, Mytopia, CNN, Windows Live, games and so on.
