Xperia X2 delayed until 2010

Sony Ericsson admits phone's faults

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The Xperia X2 smartphone won’t now launch this year, Sony Ericsson has admitted.

The X2 was supposed to go live during Q4 2009, or so SE told Register Hardware back in September when the high-end handset was first demoed in public.

However, a post onto the official Xperia blog has since confirmed that “the X2 is going to be delayed until January [2010]” – the first week of which, to be specific.

Mobile phone firms don’t usually admit much when their high-end handsets miss scheduled launch dates, but SE confessed that the X2 “threw up a few issues” when trying to integrate the smartphone with some network applications.

A few “minor tweaks”, such as extending the X2’s battery life and speeding up aspects of the phone’s software, also need to be performed before the handset can be released, SE added.

The Xperia X2 will run Windows Mobile 6.5 and features an 8.1Mp camera alongside a “real 3D panel” of controls in various applications. The phone supports quad-band GSM and 3G connections. ®
