The more we find out about Sony Ericsson’s upcoming X1 under the new Xperia line, the more of a beast this device is shaping up to be. Seriously, what doesn’t it have? A slew of new pics have emerged on a Hungarian blog and they go a great distance to answer the questions that bloggers all over the internet have been asking this week. Mobile World Congress attendees were pretty pissed that X1 demos were extremely limited. Well, the cause behind Sony Ericsson’s secretiveness is now crystal clear; the X1 is running Windows Mobile 6.1. We’ve been telling you about 6.1 for a while now and we even gave you a great walkthrough back in December. The updated version of Windows Mobile still isn’t official however, and so it stands to reason that Sony Ericsson had to be very careful about what they revealed. Let’s look at a quick rundown of what these freshly leaked pics confirm:

  • The X1 is pure fire
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS
  • Qualcomm 7200A CPU running at 528 MHz
  • 128MB of RAM
  • VGA 800 x 480 display resolution
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with no flash (wtf?!)
  • Beefy 1500 mAh battery

The metal case, the QWERTY that slides out at a slight curve, spot-on specs and a battery that can handle it all… This is one sexy mofo. Pricing on this badboy should be pretty high but it really looks like Sony Ericsson hit a home run.
