The lone warrior of the Xperia series, the Xperia X1, finally gets a morale booster in the form of its younger, feature packed cousin, the newly announced Xperia X2.
While we have been hearing the imminent arrival of the Xperia X2 for ages now, it was yesterday on the occasion of Nokia World 09 that Sony Ericsson chose to make the arrival of the phone official. Interestingly, yesterday was also when HTC announced that it will launch its first Windows Mobile 6 based device, the HTC Mega, next month. So, it seems the arrival of Windows Mobile 6.5 is more or less confirmed early next month.

Coming back to the Xperia X2, apart from being one of the first phones to run Windows Mobile 6.5, it might also be the first Windows Mobile device to sport an 8.1 megapixel camera and bringing hordes of multimedia prowess to the otherwise staid and businesslike platform. The arrival of Windows Mobile 6.5 means that the X2 will ship with Microsoft Office Mobile, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and Internet Explorer Mobile preloaded. The X2 also boasts of the new SlideView feature, which provides quick access to frequently used phone activities . We would love to see how well this works. One of the distinguishing features of the Xperia X1 was its various panels. They were, however, let down, thanks to the poor implementation. The X2 carries forward the same pedigree and comes with 14 stock panels. Many others are available for download.

As for the other features, here we go!

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
Tri-band UMTS/HSPA connectivity (900/1900/2100 MHz, or 850/1900/2100 MHz for the X2a)
3.2 inch TFT touchscreen display with 480 x 800 pixels
Full QWERTY keyboard

110MB of internal memory

115 grams

The Xperia X2 comes with the following accessories in the box . MH500 Stereo Portable Handsfree, USB cable, TV out cable, battery and a battery charger.

The phone is expected to be out next month, probably on Oct. 6, which more or less seems to be the official date of the arrival of Windows Mobile 6.5. The pricing of the phone is yet to be announced.

A video preview of the phone is posted below.
