Sony Ericsson Talks XPERIA X2 Software Updates

"It's not news to say that we attracted some criticism for this on the X1 and we're not going to go there again with the X2. So, for the record, this is what X2 customers can expect in terms of software upgrades."

In an attempt to be upfront with consumers, Sony Ericsson has announced the software update schedule for the XPERIA X2. According to the company, March should bring a major update: Windows Mobile will be upped from 6.5.1 to 6.5.2, most applications will receive tweaks, and there will be added support for video telephony, an FM radio, and faster GPS fixes. Then sometime in May, it'll get the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 treatment. Of course, the value of all this is heavily dependent on the device making it into the hands of consumers in a timely fashion, which we're sorry to say, is not happening.

Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X2 Delayed

Posted by Darius Wey in "Windows Phone News" @ 02:53 AM

"Over the last couple of weeks there has been a few, OK more than a few rumours that the X2 is going to be delayed until January and I'm sure it will not come as a surprise when we say that these are well founded. The software worked fine but when we started integrating it with some of the network specific apps it threw up a few issues which we're working to fix."

Stop the presses. The launch of the XPERIA X2 has been delayed. Following the infamous delays that marred the launch of the XPERIA X1, we were pleasantly surprised by Sony Ericsson's optimism that the X2 would be good to go for an early Q4 release. Fast-forward to today, late Q4, and the X2 is nowhere to be seen. Well, the company now seems to think that the Windows Mobile 6.5 device will definitely be ready for the first week of January. As for us, we're not holding our breath.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 Hands On

"Here it is, folks. Sony Ericsson's newly official XPERIA X2 in the flesh. It's got a flashy (gimmicky?) home screen, along with a view for "snacking" on bubbled-up information. Lots of buzzwords, but we'll need more time hands-on to know how we feel. The hardware? It's still a heavy beast, but perhaps just a bit more loving in this incarnation. We don't love the resistive touchscreen one bit."

For those of you interested in Sony Ericsson's latest Windows Phone incarnation, check out Engadget's post complete with gallery and video. They don't sound like big fans of the device, so feel free to post here and let us know if you are (or if you agree with them!)
