Xperia X2 is shown running Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional on its screen, and the casing has a more sleek and modern look to it, with the most noticable difference over the X1 being the loss of the triangular soft keys. A forward facing camera is visible, and 3G with HSDPA is likely. A memory expansion slot, which we presume will be for a MicroSD card following Sony Ericsson’s switch, and a Qualcomm ARM MSM7200 – as found in the X1 – processor are listed too.
Yep, I am rapidly falling in love here. Again. With another Sony Ericsson phone. That I won’t be able to get till my contract’s up. Argh, life can be so cruel, sometimes! As you may have guessed, if you’ve read the blog over the last week, I’m talking about the Sony Ericsson X2, leaked photos and specs of which have popped up online recently.
There’s not really much I can say beyond what I already have, because I’ve already said at great length how I like it. Really like it. As in, “want one NOOOOOOOOOOW” like it. Still, at least the operating system is now confirmed as being definitely Windows Mobile 6.5 (which is nice, but I’ll still stick SPB Mobile Shell on top of it).
For those unfamiliar, here’s the low-down:
* 8.1-megapixel camera with auto focus, video recording in VGA resolution @ 30fps (MP4 HQ)
* 3.5-inch WVGA OLED (increased from 3.0-inches on the X1)
* GPS, aGPS
* 3.5 mm headphone jack
* Faster processor
* 512MB RAM
* Custom Windows Mobile 6.5 (SE engineers customized Win6.5 which runs very. very speedy. on par with iPhone and better in some cases)
* XPERIA Panels are modified with plenty of innovative features (PS3 remote play being one of them)
* Upgrading to Windows Mobile 7 is supported by Xperia panels
Intriguingly, on that same link, there’s a note of the processor type, and it’s… well, I have no idea what chip it will be, but after a bit of research, it looks like the latest ARM11 chipsets are running at about 700MHz, which is really rather fast. I would’ve preferred a 1GHz Snapdragon like you get in the Toshiba TG01, but hey, can’t win ‘em all!
An ‘open’ shot shows the keyboard looking good, with a very natural layout, similar to that found in the new HTC TouchPro2, all of which makes us look forward to Sony Ericsson’s announcement!
