XPERIA X2 May Show Next Wk
Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X2 smartphone may finally have its public appearance next week if a rumor bears fruit. A press launch has purportedly been "confirmed" by SEMC Blog for next week that would center on just one device, likely involving the new smartphone. Other details aren't provided and potentially cast doubt on the claim.
The X2 itself is known to be a significant upgrade to the X1 with Windows Mobile 6.5 and new panels that, among other things, would support the PS3's Remote Play feature. It would also get much more RAM (512MB) and jump from a 3.2-megapixel camera to 8.1 megapixels. A new directional pad and a larger, reworked keyboard are similarly on tap for the design.
Other candidates include the Android-based Rachael or a final launch for the Satio.
