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!
