XPERIA X2 video out

The upcoming Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 handset was the star in a recently found video, confirming the 3.5-inch OLED touchscreen smartphone will run on Windows Mobile 6.5. The video also shows Sony Ericsson's in-house Panels user interface, though no other new details are revealed. Sony Ericsson has been teasing the public with the XPERIA X2 for a while now, without officially releasing any specifications. The video of the device suggests a production version is still a ways off, as the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS does not have a heavy Sony Ericsson influence.

At the same time, the video does not show the XPERIA X2 being operated in landscape mode, which allows users to type using the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Other rumored features of the smartphone are to include an 8.1-megapixel camera with autofocus, assisted GPS and an optical trackpad. There should be 512MB of RAM and a 3.5mm headset jack. The UI should also allow users to link the device to their PlayStation 3s for sharing media, in a fashion similar to the PSP's Remote Play synchronization.

Though an official release date is still unknown, the device is expected to hit dealers this fall. Pricing remains a mystery, however. [via SlashGear]
