Left Out Again: Xperia X2 Passes FCC Without US 3G

The good news is that the Xperia X2 is now legally usable within the territory of the United States. The bad news is that you won't be able to get 3G speeds on any of the available networks through the FCC-passed model. Having said that, if and when Sony-Ericsson comes up with a model using US 3G bands it should get through the FCC fairly quickly (have they ever turned anyone down?). Given SE's financial troubles and relative lack of penetration into the US market, I wouldn't lay odds on that ever happening.

Xperia X2 Unboxing Video

"The unit we were able to unbox here isn't a sales unit at all but it's a so called "acceptance unit" which represents a device which carriers get it for testing and certification. Nevertheless, it's pretty much the stuff Sony Ericsson will ship into markets later this year. Sony Ericsson's Xperia X2 will be available in selected markets from early Q4 2009 and will be released in two different colors: Elegant Black (as seen in the videoview) and Modern Silver."

The X2 features some updates to the X1, including WM6.5 as well as a big jump to an 8.1MP camera. It's also a world phone with quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G. Sony-Ericsson built in some nice touches with the design and acessories, like being able to use your on ear-buds with the included headset cable as well as a TV/Video-out cable that plugs in through the 3.5mm (!) headphone socket. Check out the rest of the video for more.

Update:

Arne has a follow-up first impressions post, with lots of pics for your viewing pleasure.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 Announced

"The XPERIA X2 also includes the unique SlideView feature, which provides quick access to frequently used phone activities. Providing quick interaction with contacts, messages, media and more, SlideView gives an overview of missed incoming activity, notifying the user of any missed calls, e-mails and text messages so users don't overlook an important contact."

I well remember the horrendous delay that marred the launch of the X1 - looks like SE has learned its lesson and the X2 is projected to go on release in time for the holiday season. The X2 features a refresh of the X1 design with some tastefully updated specs - like an 8MP camera and TV-out. Also under the hood are Windows Mobile 6.5, AGPS, quadband GSM and triband HSPA, 3.2" WVGA screen, and what sounds like an accelerometer. The panel UI design remains (now in 3D), but SE have simultaneously released an SDK to give developers a head start. Read on for the full press release. Read more...
