Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 previewed; might cost €599
Officially announced just two days ago, Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is one of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphones that should be available starting October 6 – in some markets, at least.
Following the footsteps of Xperia X1, the X2 comes with a touchscreen display and a full QWERTY keyboard. The new smartphone also has Xperia panels – and Sony Ericsson has done a wise thing by releasing the Panels SDK so that developers can create new panels.
The Xperia X2 has recently been previewed by Mobile-review.
Both the black and the silver editions of the smartphone were photographed – and the black one looks arguably nicer.
Overall, the X2 seems to be better built than the X1. Reportedly, the X2 has a nice WVGA touchscreen display, “excellent” QWERTY keyboard, loud speakers, and nicely integrated panels.
The new smartphone uses the same processor as the X1 – Qualcomm MSM 7200 at 528MHz. Hopefully, this will do its job well. The X2 previewed by Mobile-review is not the final version of the device, so it’s not clear yet how the final version will perform.
