Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 gets official

Will it ever stop today? Sony Ericsson has apparently decided to join in the fun — and by that we mean attempt to steal Nokia’s thunder. Everyone’s favorite stumbling handset maker has just made the somewhat anticipated XPERIA X2 official. We would much rather see the XPERIA X3 become a reality but as they say, you can’t win ‘em all. As far as specs go, leaks have already encompassed just about everything worth mentioning: Windows Mobile 6.5, 8.1 megapixel camera with auto focus, touch focus and 16x digital zoom, 3.5-inch WVGA OLED display, aGPS, DLNA, 512MB RAM, 3.5 mm headphone jack and an accelerometer. No pricing has been announced but it will launch in select markets some time in Q4 and there will be a version with WCDMA 850/1900/2100 MHz. Hit the jump for a pair of videos along with the complete spec list.

Thanks, Evan!

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 to get official next week?

Rumor has it that the Sony Ericsson Xperia 2 will be made official next week at a yet-to-be announced Sony Ericsson press event. The QWERTY side slider is expected to debut with Windows Mobile 6.5 under its hood along with an 8.1 megapixel camera with auto focus, 3.5-inch WVGA OLED display, aGPS, 512MB RAM, 3.5 mm headphone jack and an accelerometer. With the HTC Touch Pro2 making the rounds, the Samsung Omnia II arriving soon and now the Xperia X2 likely getting official, it looks like Windows Mobile fans will have a smorgasbord of phones to lust after in the weeks and months to come.

More pics of Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 surface; announcement imminent?

More pics of Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 surface; announcement imminent?

Historically speaking, an increased frequency in live shots generally indicates that an official announcement isn’t far off. Sony Ericsson fans can only hope that’s the case as a new round of pics bubble up to show off the forthcoming Xperia X2 aka Vulcan lounging around with its underachieving little brother, the Xperia X1. Sure we’ve seen it before, a few times, but we haven’t yet grown tired of eying this sexy little SE number. Spec refresher:

  • 8.1 megapixel auto-focus, VGA video capture @ 30fps (MP4 HQ)
  • 3.5-inch WVGA OLED
  • GPS
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • Accelerometer
  • Faster processor
  • 512 RAM
  • Custom Windows Mobile 6.5
  • XPERIA Panels are modified with plenty of innovative features (PS3 remote play being one of them)
  • Upgradable to Windows Mobile 7

Still no word on pricing but hopefully the disaster that was the Xperia X1 will motivate SE to price this little guy a bit lower right out the gate. Hit the jump for more shots.

New images of Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 surface

Well lookie what we have here — a few juicy new images of Sony Ericsson’s second Xperia handset, the X2, have just surfaced over on the Esato forums. Looking stellar in a full silver overcoat, the X2 shows off its sleek design and PC-like keys. These are indeed the first device-on shots of the X2 so we also get a glimpse of the handset running Windows Mobile 6.5 in all of its glory. To refresh your memory, here are the rumored specs as reported earlier this week:

  • 8.1mpx auto focus, VGA @ 30fps (MP4 HQ)
  • 3.5-inch WVGA OLED (increased from 3.0 from X1)
  • GPS, aGPS
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Accelerometer
  • Faster processor
  • 512 RAM
  • Custom Windows Mobile 6.5 (SE engineers customized Win6.5 which runs very. very speedy. in 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

Presuming Sony Ericsson can manage to ship this puppy some time before Window Mobile 9 drops, it should definitely compete well with other high-end WinMo handsets due to hit the market soon. Hit the jump for more shots.

Thanks, Funky!
